PCN up in 2013/14

Type 2012/13 2013/14 Up/Down %
Parking 151,026 150,456 -0.38%
Bus Lane 15,358 16,577 7.94%
Total 166,384 167,033 0.39%

Although not statistically significant the number of PCN issued in 2013/14 by Barnet Council (NSL) was slightly up on 2012/13. This doesn't mean that you residents and other motorists parked more badly than previously, only that the number of traffic wardens on the beat was about the same (probably) and/or that the projected Special Parking Account income had been slightly raised from one year to the next.

Another post is coming which will tell you they are down in 2014/15 (for now).

Whether up or down there is a heck of a lot of them.

Mr Mustard doesn't quite get why any local would still drive in the A5 southbound (northbound is in Brent)  bus lanes as any regular driver on that road must know the times by now. Don't think you can take a chance and the operator won't see you as the operator is a computer by the name of Zenco which is more efficient than a human as it doesn't pop out for a tea break or look the wrong way.

Yours frugally

Mr Mustard
