Swansea has been revealed as one of the most likely places in Britain outside of London to get pinched for parking.
Apparently the city is 4th in the league of numbers of tickets issued - a staggering 35500 last year.
That equates to 92 per day.
This has raised £1.2 million in council revenues - the figure does not include tickets issued by the police and by private parking companies that patrol a lot of city centre carparks.
The council has defended it's zealous enforcement policy by stating that tickets are issued where drivers park illegally or in dangerous places eg outside schools.
It seems strange that Swansea is so far up a league such as this when the council say they are apparently trying to encourage visitors back into our city centre.
