Lincoln City Council have vowed to get tough with motorists who park illegally when they take over responsibility for parking enforcement from the police in December.
A team of 20 strong wardens have been appointed and will have the power to hand out £50 fines. Lincoln City Council say the scheme will not make money but is instead intended to free up the streets of Lincoln and prevent congestion.
They have launched a new on line guide to help motorists brush up on the Highway Code so they avoid getting a penalty notice.
