Here's one that may interest you, although I have crunched the figures for those who can't be bothered:http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/penalty_charge_notices_pcns_issu#incoming-229419
In the week commencing 21/8/11 they issued a total of 4,354 tickets. That represents total fines issued that week of £261,120, or £37,302.85 a day.
From 14/8/11 to 29/10/11 (77days) a total of 22,720 PCNs were issued at £60 a pop. This represents total fines of £1,363,200 in 11 weeks.
If you assume that everyone paid at the reduced rate of £30 (they didn't but you can't get into too many specifics or it becomes a nightmare) this would mean motorists paid a total of £681,600 to Herts CC. Herts CC have bleated in the press that they only get £8 from every ticket and the rest goes to the
contractors who installed the cameras.
Therefore ladies and gentlemen there is a £22 shortfall on every PCN, and when we prove that the signs and lines are incorrect and therefore unenforceable (which we have now had professional confirmation that they are) the poor old Herts CC taxpayers are going to have to stump up the princely sum of at least £499,840 (let's call it an even half a million quid) because Herts CC wouldn't listen to us.
And unfortunately that sum will only increase until such time as all enforcement at Moor End Road is stopped and the signs and lines are put right.
May I respectfully remind Herts CC that we've got a NIGEL, and we're not afraid to unleash him.
