Car Dealer Fined For 12 Parking Tickets
A car dealer who repeatedly used public car parks in Gosport to store his vehicles in has been ordered to pay £3,200 in fines.
Gosport Borough Council took 51 year old Dougie Goodwin, of Franklin Road, Gosport to court after he refused to pay for 12 parking tickets.
He runs a car sales and repair business in Park Street, Gosport, Hampshire, and used the car parks to store his vehicles between November 2014 and May 2016.
It beached the local authority's off-street parking order.
Portsmouth Magistrates' Court fined him £1,200 and ordered him to pay £780 compensation, £1,000 costs and a £240 victim surcharge.
Councillor Graham Burgess, chairman of the borough council's community board, said:
``No one likes getting a parking ticket.
``If people have legitimate concerns, they can appeal but simply not paying it is only going to cost you more in the long run.
``Mr Goodwin was a persistent offender, taking up parking spaces other people could have used. I'm pleased to see the court viewed this matter as seriously as we do.''
