Drivers owe £1.6m in parking fines to Bradford Council

BRADFORD Council is owed more than £1.6 million in unpaid parking fines from the last three years.
The figure has been released following a Freedom of Information request by the Telegraph & Argus, which has also revealed the most ticketed roads in the Bradford district.
Almost £420,000 in unpaid fines is still outstanding from the financial year 2014-15, with more than £500,000 outstanding from 2015-16, and more than £730,000 in 2016-17.
There are currently 16,613 unpaid parking fines owed to Bradford Council.


Piccadilly and Kirkgate in Bradford city centre are the two roads with the highest numbers of unpaid fines, with 1,249 and 1,227 outstanding from the last three years, respectively.
A total of £1,657,895.57 is owed in outstanding fines across the district, £419,935.83 from 2014/15, £505,947.26 from 2015/16, and £732,012.48 from 2016/17. There are 4,132, 5,166, and 7,315 fines outstanding from the three years, respectively.
The reason the figure for 2016/17 is significantly higher than previous year is, according to Bradford Council, that it can take a few months for payments to be processed, and a similar search next year would return a figure similar to previous years.
Other roads with large numbers of outstanding fines include Rawson Road with 660, Broadway with 612, Aldermanbury with 485, and Bank Street with 434.
