Kenneth Lambourn had actually paid £1.50 for a valid ticket but it had blown off the dashboard when he opened his door, which cost him a fine.
The former cabbie found the £25 penalty notice when he returned to his parked car in Chippenham, Wiltshire. And when the 64-year-old tried to reason with them, showing them his ticket as proof he hadn’t tried to park without paying, they ignored him and insisted on paying the fine.
Kenneth went to the bank and drew out the £25 fine in pennies.‘I did it to make a point. I don’t like being made an idiot of,’ he told.
