Professor Stephen Glaister, director of the RAC Foundation, has said today's ruling quashing parking charge increases in Barnet was "fantastic news for drivers".
Mr Glaister said:
The law is explicit - parking charges are about managing congestion, not raising revenue. If there is a surplus collected, then there are strict rules on what it can be used for.
The question is: why did Barnet ever think it had an arguable case to pick on one group of residents to shoulder an additional tax?
