20% of Motorists in Wellington risk fines
Wellington Town Council installed free ticket machines in the short stay car parks in Wellington to control the length of stays.
There is no charge for the tickets but all car park users need to get a ticket from the machine and display it on the dashboard.
A survey recently revealed that up to 20% of people using the car parks are not getting a free ticket.
There was a Grace period where motorist not complying with the new system were getting leaflets rather than fines, but it has been reported that fines are now being issued.
