Hundreds flout Olympic parking restrictions

Hundreds of motorists flouted parking restrictions put in place in Windsor and Maidenhead for the Olympic Games. 

More than 200 motorists received fines and warnings from the Royal Borough after special measures were put in place to stop spectators parking in residential areas and throughways.

The council issued 123 fixed penalty notices as well as towing four vehicles and warning more than 100 drivers to move their cars.

As much as £8,610 could be generated by the borough in fines, which are £70 each or £50 if paid within two weeks.

Thames Valley Police also issued 101 penalties in South Bucks and towed five cars.

Cllr Simon Dudley, cabinet member for adult services, said cash generated from fines will be reinvested in the borough through Big Society grants for transport related schemes.
