No need for this fuss over fines

Why is there such a fuss over plans to increase parking fines? A fine is a penalty for a breach of the law - not a fee.

All that motorists have to do to avoid a parking ticket is to observe the law. Simple.

What the intended increase is meant to achieve is to improve the flow of traffic into and through our towns and cities by discouraging those drivers who seem to believe it is their right to deny other road-users the right of free passage, or access to parking spaces.

That can only be to the benefit of all motorists.
