Revealed: From Ahoghill to Whitehead - where are you most likely to get a parking ticket in Northern Ireland?

By Jonny Bell

Government statistics have revealed where motorists are most likely to get a parking ticket - outside of Belfast.

In the first three months of the year, 20,502 parking fines were issued across Northern Ireland. If not paid within 12 days of the notice issued, which halves the fine, motorists would have forked out £1.8m for their offences.

Belfast was the stand out area for motorists to be fined with 8,331 issued between January and March.

However, outside the city, the next location most likely place to find errant parking was in Newry with 1,919 tickets issued in the first quarter of the year.

A single ticket was issued in each of the areas of Broughshane, Donaghmore, Dungiven, Dunmurry, Fivemiletown, Irvinestown and Markethill.
