Parking Ticket after 19 years ... you couldn't make it up!

I don't think we need to tell her that she shouldn't pay .... does it qualify for a British Parking Association Award (see next post) for the most efficient authority?

Fine mess we're in

Swindon Advertiser

Human Resources administrator Nikki Yeates with a demand to pay parking fines that date back to 1989 and 1996.

NO-ONE gets away with parking fines - even if it takes the authorities 19 years to get round to it.
Parking fines allegedly issued to an Advertiser company car on March 10, 1989 and February 28, 1996 have only now been chased up by Swindon Magistrates' Court.
And, according to firm's records, the car was not registered to the Adver at the time the first fine was issued.
"The thing that crosses your mind is what are we paying them for if they take so long to get the fines?" said Dinah Hunt, the Adver's financial controller. "It's certainly not efficient."
