|Chiswick High Road Earns Council Almost £1,000 A Day|
PCN revenue ranks road amongst London's top money makers
Chiswick High Road nets Hounslow Council almost £1,000 a day in PCNs according to an Evening Standard investigation making it the borough's 'top earner'.
The council received £351,416 last year from fines issued on the High Road alone more than King's Road at £203,123
A council spokesman said: "As one of our busiest roads for traffic, and at nearly 2.5km long, it would follow that there are likely to be more contraventions that are detected."
Appeal Now founder Barrie Segal commented, “There are a few reasons that some roads are much worse than others. Often it's road signage - one sign will contradict another so it will be confusing for the motorist. Sometimes it's poor road marking."
He added, "The problem is there's no incentive for councils to correct this.”
