Parking charges are one of life's little irritations, but what's really annoying is ticket machines that don't give change, forcing motorists to make a 'donation' to their council.... grrrrr!

 

Across the country these overpayments add up to hundreds of thousands of pounds.

 

But one council has taken the sting out of the tail by voting to use that money to help fund local charitable projects

 

Torridge council has decided that £40,000 overpaid to parking meters in Torridge will now go towards community organisations and charities,

Excellent idea and I think the people of Torridge themselves, should be asked which charities and not for the Council to use this money to prop up services such as the NHS !

 

I think this also annoys me..

 

 

Around £2,000 in unpaid fines given to foreign vehicles were written off by Torridge and North Devon councils last year

 

 

Perhaps they could find some way of ensuring those fines are paid somehow ?

What is the difference between community organisations and the Council?? What do you think the Council spend the money on, foreign holidays and nights out on the town?
