Private parking firms issue tickets every seven seconds, data suggests
Requests by private parking companies for vehicle-keeper records rose 28% last year to 4.7m, RAC Foundation finds
The number of drivers fined by private parking companies in the UK has risen by more than a quarter in the past year, research by the RAC Foundation suggests.
Private parking companies requested more than 4.7m vehicle-keeper records from the DVLA in 2016/17, a rise of 28% from the previous year. The vast majority of these requests are likely to have been for the purpose of issuing fines to drivers of up to £100, the motoring research organisation says.
