RAC survey finds parking is getting more expensive

According to a recent survey by breakdown cover provider RAC, car parking in town centres is becoming more expensive.
RAC survey finds parking is getting more expensive
Around two-thirds of respondents said that they thought car parking has become expensive, as well as spaces being too small for today’s modern cars. 
 
Following the findings, RAC has called for local councils to create bigger spaces to meet the demand and make parking charges cheaper. 
 
The breakdown provider also accused councils using the parking charges to fill the gaps in their budgets, but this was denied by the governing bodies. 
 
A spokesman for the Local Government Association said: “This ‘report’ further peddles the myth that councils are using parking charges to raise money. The reality is that the average motorist is paying 30 times more to Whitehall in charges and taxation every year than they do to their own town hall through parking.
 
“Councils are on the side of hard-pressed motorists by keeping a lid on parking charges. They do not make a profit from parking. All income from charges and fines are spent on running parking services and any surplus goes on running essential transport projects such as bringing our dilapidated road network up to scratch.”
 
The survey results have been revealed shortly after it was found that local councils made £635 million in parking charges alone.
