Birmingham City Council have released a list of taxi ranks which have seen the most fines issued to drivers who have parked illegally.

The top ten list of ranks covers the period between April and August this year.

Despite taxi ranks being for the use of licensed hackney carriage taxis only, regular road users have been known to park on them in the hope of avoiding any parking charges.

Enforcement officers are able to issue fines to anyone who has parked on a taxi rank. Below is a list of the top ten ranks where people parked illegally:

  1. Bennetts Hill, city centre, which saw 81 fines issued.

  2. Temple Row, city centre, which saw 58 fines issued.

  3. Bishopsgate Street, city centre, which saw 48 fines issued.

  4. Institute Road, Kings Heath, which saw 42 fines issued.

  5. Smallbrook Queensway, which saw 40 fines issued.

  6. Dale End, city centre, which saw 37 fines issued.

  7. Steelhouse Lane, city centre, which saw 36 fines issued.

  8. Aberdeen Street, Wilson Green, which saw 25 fines issued.

  9. Corporation Street, city centre, which also saw 25 fines issued.

  10. Theatre Approach, city centre, which saw 25 fines issued.

Parking on a taxi rank means working hackney carriage taxi drivers are unable to use the allocated bays for plying for hire, meaning they are left with fewer opportunities to pick-up a fare.
