An angry motorist who threw away his parking ticket was hit with a bill of more than £500.

Arif Chand, from Blackburn, had been given the first fine for double parking his car in the town in March last year.

He removed the ticket, threw it to the floor and drove away leaving it on the road.

Checks through the DVLA database showed he was the owner of the car and he was given a fixed penalty notice of £75.

He was invited to an interview to say if he was driving the car at the time or to provide details of the driver if not, but ignored all the council's requests for details.

Mr Chand was also convicted in his absence at Blackburn Magistrates Court of littering contrary to section 87 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

Magistrates fined him £150, ordered him to pay costs of £377 and £15 to a fund for victims of crime, with a total bill of £542.

Good on the council, i say.

What are your views?

He was stupid to do what he did, but councils with their speeding/parking policies are nothing more than legalised crooks IMHO.

couldnt agree more - ive paid about £500 to councils this year over stupid things - now started contesting them and they are cancelling them. they think they can get away with anything.

the people that work for the council i find are the dumbest people on the planet, how on earth they get employed is beyond me.

they are a law unto themselves, but when you challenge them you realise nothing that they have done will stand up in court. always challange anything from the council. 9 times out of ten these numtie havent got a leg to stand on.

as far as this guy getting fined for throwing away his ticket, what an idiot, did he think that the fine would go away.
