TOWN councillor Paul Rounding has called on parking wardens to give motorists a little leeway before handing out tickets in pay and display car parks.

He believes so called “civil enforcement officers” are too keen to fine motorists who are just a few minutes over their time limit - and fears that the situation could put people off visiting the town.

The authority submitted a freedom of information request to the East Riding of Yorkshire Council in a bid to ascertain “the number of car parking fines that have been issued to those contravening parking regulations in the pay and display car parks in Driffield, compared to those issued to people illegally parked in the streets of the town.”
