£30m council parking income queried by RAC Foundation
Welsh councils made a profit of almost £9m on car parking last year, according to new research.
The RAC Foundation says accounts show a total of £30m was raised by the 22 local authorities through parking schemes - charges, resident permits and fines - of which £8.7m was profit.
It said the aim should be managing congestion not raising cash.
A Welsh Local Government Association spokesman denied profiteering and said millions more were spent on roads.
