Twenty seven private hire drivers have been caught illegally parking, contravening a pedestrian crossing in Staffordshire.
It is an offence to park on or near a pedestrian crossing which has zig-zag markings and comes with a punishment in the way of a fine and 3 points issued to the driver's licence.
Staffordshire Police highlighted the offences via their Twitter account and even confirmed one driver committed the offence on four separate occasions.
3 points issued for each offence could see the driver not only facing a fine, but also a driving ban.
