Parking tickets: MPs urge five minute grace period

Motorists should be given a five minute grace period after parking tickets run out, a government committee has suggested.

Committee chairman, Labour MP Louise Ellman, said: "There is a deep-rooted public perception that parking enforcement is used as a cash cow, so it's essential that local authorities apply stringent transparency."
