Ealing Scores a Double in Unconventional Awards Ceremony
Council tops London’s League Table with 55% increase in PCNs
Figures released this week name Ealing Borough as having the highest increase in tickets issued to motorists for offences – up 55% on 2005. According to a Philip’s London Street Atlas survey the implementation of traffic and parking fines is inconsistent throughout the London Boroughs.
Where Ealing fine figures have risen, Islington, in sharp contrast, has reduced the number of tickets issued by 55 per cent. The staggering results prompted the Atlas to publish its own awards.
The Award for highest increase in tickets given to motorists 2005/6 over 2004/5:
1st: Ealing Up 55%
The Award for highest decrease in tickets given to motorists 2005/6 over 2004/5:

The survey also reveals Londoners attitudes to parking fines:
London drivers have more problems to encounter than most, from record levels of parking fines to the congestion charge. According to the Philip’s London Street Atlas survey (which will be including the new congestion zone in its latest edition) a third of motorists think that congestion charge is too expensive and only one in four think it has eased the capital's congestion problems. The Congestion Charging Zone is extended as of Monday 19th February.
