A car insurer behind an expose on the revenue brought in by parking fines has warned motorists to double check parking restrictions when visiting a new area.
Managing director of LV= car insurance, John O'Roarke, warned drivers "it is easy to get caught out" and to double check signs before parking.
Parking rules vary in each council area and it is easy to get caught out when you don't know the restrictions.
Getting a ticket can be very expensive and often take months to reverse.
Parking on a Sunday is becoming increasingly difficult and it's easy to get caught out if you don't know the local rules.
If in doubt, check the sign explaining the parking restrictions and if you are still unsure try to park somewhere else.
