Got A fine and Unable to pay due to Covid 19

A Parking fine is equivalent to a weeks rent * and the majority of people in the UK are living in severe hardship due to  Covid 19, fighting day and night to feed there families and stay safe.  Those who have parking fines find themselves in lock down with no means to pay, meanwhile the fine is increasing daily.

A petition to the Government to reduce the cost of Parking fines and allow more time to pay reduced costs was REJECTED as "its something the UK Government or Parliament is not responsible for.

Councils make a record breaking 1 Billion pounds a year in Parking Fines, an increase of 34% in the last 4 years alone, despite warnings from the Department for Communities. English councils have an estimated £913 million surplus from parking 2019/20 * The Telegraph

Step Change states that the BAILIFF reforms are not working and are failing to protect people in financial difficulty from unfair treatment, according to a land mark new report 'Taking Control'

One Parking fine for parking in a box for 10 minutes over the selected time will set you back £65*
If a person cannot pay within  2 weeks, the fine doubles. If a person still cannot pay the ticket will rise to £190*
If a person still cannot pay the ticket will go to court and then to bailiffs, who often use unfair methods and act unlawfully and fail to take into account the vulnerability of clients.
1 ticket for parking 10 minutes over the specified time can cost anywhere upwards of £1000*

We are currently raising £100,000. The required amount will enable GOT A FINE to completely pay off approximately 1500* Parking tickets averaging at a cost of £65.
