Wiltshire Council came in for criticism today after it was revealed it had made nearly three quarters of a million pounds by short changing motorists. The amount which puts the county top in the country comes from ticket machines that don't offer any change when you buy a ticket.
Councils in the South West made more than £40 million from car park charges in 2011 to 2012. That's 14% less than last year. But it's a different story nationally, where car park revenues have gone UP by 15%.
