Some 22% of drivers have had to start paying for a parking spot that was once free, a survey from a national car insurer has found.
According to the RAC:
- Some 24% said traffic wardens were now more active in their area.
- In addition, 41% of motorists believed that the local authority where they lived used the revenue from parking charges to subsidise other areas of non-motoring expenditure.
- A total 65% of motorists reported even when they finally find a space to park, it was too small for today's breed of cars, many of which are wider than previous generations of vehicle because of the addition of side-impact protection features.
