Haverhill Police are continuing to issue tickets to cars parked illegally in the High Street as they look to address on of the Safer Neighbourhood Team’s (SNT) publicly-set priorities.
Addressing Haverhill Town Council at Tuesday’s (February 18) meeting at the arts centre, Inspector Peter Ferrie said that 271 tickets had been issued since the SNT meeting on December 9.
That works out as an average of 12 tickets a day.
“I expect we’ll be up to 400 or 500 come the March SNT meeting,” he said.
“As I have said over many months and years it will make no difference at all.”
When questioned whether drivers were continuing to park illegally having already been issued a ticket, he confirmed that many were repeat offenders.
“People are making the judgement that it’s better to pay £30 for a ticket rather than 30p for the car park.”
