Plymouth taxi drivers are furious after being fined with a rash of parking tickets issued by Plymouth City Council's new CCTV smart car.

Drivers at AA Taxis in Devonport claim they have started receiving parking tickets for letting off clients in the city centre, where previously civil enforcement officers had allowed them some leeway.


Manager Paddy O'Reilly said a lot of the company's customers were aged or disabled and required to be set down close to shops and amenities, for example at Derry's Cross.

He said: "I've been a taxi driver for 20 years and I've always done that. All we used to get was a friendly traffic warden telling us to hurry up. They knew we were only stopping for a couple of minutes."

But he said that last week, drivers started to recieve parking tickets from the new camera car - unlike traditional parking tickets, they are not placed on the car but sent to the driver, so that one driver had received two parking tickets on the same day.
