A number of motorists have been issued with fixed penalty charge notices for parking illegally on pavements in Liverpool City Centre and even on taxi ranks being used by licensed hackney carriage drivers.


In a single night of enforcement undertaken by Merseyside Traffic Police, 37 PCNs were issued to "selfish drivers who think it's ok to park anywhere they like".

Images showing a number of vehicles, which included an Audi, a BMW and a Mercedes, were posted on the force's official Twitter account.


Just two days prior, a fixed penalty notice was issued to the driver of a white Ford vehicle who had parked on an active taxi rank in Liverpool's city centre.

It is illegal for any motorist, other than a licensed hackney carriage taxi driver, to park in a designated taxi bay or rank.


Hackney carriage taxi ranks are to be reserved for taxi drivers who wish to ply for hire and are not to be used by the general public or even private hire drivers.


A spokesperson for Liverpool City Council Licensing, said via their official Twitter account: “Parking services are issuing FPN’s to unauthorised vehicles parking on taxi ranks.”

A spokesperson for Merseyside Police said: “After numerous complaints about illegal and inconsiderate parking near to Heavenly Desserts in the City Centre, officers last night issued 37 fixed penalty notices to the selfish drivers who think it’s ok to park anywhere they like.”
