Cancelled parking fines increasing

Wed, 29 Nov 2017

The number of parking fines being cancelled on appeal is rising.

The Department of Infrastructure has revealed 2,209 fixed penalties have been withdrawn, quashed or cancelled as a result of the review process since the start of the 2015-16 financial year.

During the 12 months until April last year, 744 were cancelled, with that number rising to 813 during the 2016-17 period.

Successful appeals look set to increase again this year, with 652 tickets already withdrawn since April.

The details were revealed following a request under the Freedom of Information Act.
