Thurrock’s “Spy-car” could be banned

IT HAS BEEN, by all accounts, a great success, especially at dealing with parking outside schools but the government is now looking at banning councils such as Thurrock from using spy cars

Communities Secretary Eric Pickles said he wanted to “rein in over-zealous and unfair rules”.

In the past five year, “spy-car” or CCTV cameras have been used to issue more than 10 million fines, totalling £301m, in the past five years, the Conservatives say.

The critics say they are nothing more than there as a cash-making exercise as well as intrusive.
