Revealed: The Liverpool streets where you are most likely to get a parking ticket
A new study has revealed the Liverpool city centre parking spots where motorists are most likely to get a parking ticket.
The data was compiled following a Freedom of Information request submitted to Liverpool City Council, and found that Prescot Street is the place where most parking fines are issued. Since 2015 nearly 5,000 parking tickets have been issued on Prescot Street, which is near the Royal Hospital.
Second in the list is William Brown Street, which has seen over 3,300 parking tickets given out since 2015. Victoria Street had 3,200 parking tickets issued in the same period, and Brunswick Street had over 3,100.
Other Liverpool streets featuring in the list are Duke Street, Old Hall Street and Mount Pleasant car park.
On the subject of parking in Liverpool, another recent study carried out by The Car People found that workers in Liverpool City Centre are paying out up to 15% of their weekly wages on car parking during the working week.
The study analysed the prices of city centre car parks between 8.30am and 5.30pm and compared that against the average salary in the city, finding that Liverpool commuters are forking out a significant percentage of their income just to park their car near their work.
On average, Liverpool workers pay £44 out of their £377 weekly pay in order to park within 15 minutes walk from their city centre place of work. That is well above the national average of 10% of a £416 weekly salary.
