The motorist, in Westminster, London, was slapped with 296 tickets last year, to the tune of £36,350. In Medway, Kent, a foreign-registered BMW driver managed to pick up 268 tickets worth £29,768.
It is the same story in Reading, where a Vauxhall has amassed £24,291 of fines on 265 tickets – all on the same road.
While statistics from the London borough of Lambeth show a driver who’s been punished 190 times, adding up to a £25,265 bill.
These usually go unpaid because the DVLA does not have up-to-date records on the registered keeper or there is no record for a foreign plate.
But some choose to settle their mammoth bills fairly regularly – suggesting the drivers see the fines as just another running cost.
Luke Bosdet of the AA said: “It beggars belief that identifiable rogue cars are issued ticket after ticket without being chased up.
“Surely, if one is blacklisted with £20,000 to £30,000 owing, it can be acted on the next time a parking warden spots it?
“The problem is that councils find it far easier to issue tickets to normally law-abiding drivers who make a mistake, or force the innocent to appeal successfully tickets that shouldn’t have been given in the first place.”
Some motorists appear to treat the fines as a parking fee.
In Camden, north London, one driver of a Jaguar F-Type settled 176 parking fines last year, which cost them £9,050.
Over in Kensington and Chelsea, a Volkswagen owner clocked up £18,250 last year for 146 tickets. Sheffield’s most reckless parker was frequently found in Milton Street near the city centre.
In North Tyneside the worst offender, a Vauxhall Astra, was normally found in Church Way, North Shields.
A DVLA spokesman said: “By law, motorists must notify us when they change address. This ensures our records are accurate and assists with on-road policing, as well as identifying and tracing those responsible for a vehicle.”
