Britain’s Parking Hell

There’s a war going on in Britain. All across the country, motorists, councils and private parking companies are fighting each other over one simple thing: parking. In our small, over populated country, 38 million cars are in a daily battle for just 8 million parking spaces. Among major industrialised countries, Britain is now recognised as the worst place to park in the world. Nothing makes Britons angrier than parking: we are spending more on it than ever, with a record number of tickets being issued and a record number of appeals against them being made. In this series we travel across the country documenting Britain’s parking battles: the story of the people versus parking.
