Which road claimed almost £1m in traffic fines in 2010?

Have you guessed it yet? … A single road in South London, called Clapham Park Road caught drivers with traffic fines worth £914,040 in 2010, the most in the capital.

A total of 16,800 tickets were issued by Parking officers and two bus lane cameras on Clapham Park Road for every day in the last year.

But despite the sterling efforts of these streets, the borough that hauled in the most money from motorists was Kensington and Chelsea. A Freedom of Information act request by the Evening Standard showed that the council took a massive £36m across its areas.
