Beware The Yellow Peril
Whilst I was lunching with the ladies on Friday, I noticed this little scene being played out in the street. The two traffic wardens have obviously eyed up this Mini for a ticket, and the owner has just appeared as the ticket is being written out.
The fact that the owner is looking at her mobile phone must mean that she has gone over the time that she has paid for. Whether it is a few minutes or not, those boys in yellow clearly have another 'kill' on their hands and a fine for the driver. If she is only a couple of minutes late, I wouldn't think that they would be lenient, as parking fines are a big profitable business in the city centre, like most other places up and down the country. I don't know how much the council raked in last year, but I bet it was into millions of pounds.
