Cambridge illegal parking cheaper for shoppers
Shoppers in Cambridge city centre are finding it cheaper to park illegally and pay a fine rather than use an official car park.
Parking in the Grand Arcade shopping centre on a Saturday costs £26 from 9am to 5pm.
Parking fines are £50 but can be halved if paid within 14 days - £1 cheaper.
Councillor Tim Ward, who is in charge of parking in the city, is considering lobbying the county council to increase parking fines.
