Poll: Is it right to fine Ferrari owner who paid for two spaces?

A Northern Irish Ferrari owner has been hit with a £90 fine after parking his car across two bays - despite purchasing tickets for both.

The Mirror reports Kevin McWhinney parked his car across two spaces at a car park on the Church Road in Antrim on September 27.

He was issued with a £90 Penalty Charge Notice for parking across the bays.

After appealing the decision to the Department of Infrastructure, he had his request to have the fine cancelled rejected on the grounds the car was "not parked completely within a marked bay", which contravened Article 5 of the Off-Street Parking Order.

Mr McWhinney, who is managing director of McWhinney's Sausages, told the paper he had been paying for two parking spaces for more than 15 years and asked "where can I park my car safely without being fined".
