PARKING: Officer should have been fined

Have your say

I attended the fete at Spalding Primary School on Woolram Wygate last weekend and was appalled to witness a police car parked on the zig zag lines outside the school.

I witnessed the police officers attending the fete meeting with local colleagues (police community support officers) who had attended the fete and parked their car in the correct place, the school car park. This is simply incredulous and what truly frustrates me about this is without any reasonable doubt by parking there they’re committing a road traffic offence of which any member of the public committing such an offence would receive a fixed penalty notice.

I found this information on the .gov website:

The officer who parked this vehicle in my opinion should be subject to a £60 fine and dealt in the same way any member of the public would be.
