    Drivers furious as cars slapped with £70 fines when street turned into ‘disabled only’ bay overnight

    Furious drivers slam council after row of cars were slapped with £70 fines when street was turned into ‘disabled only’ bay overnight

    • Cars parked on Queen Street in Rhyl, north Wales were hit with £70 parking fines
    • Locals were furious as they said the street became ‘disabled only’ bay overnight
    • Denbighshire Council has now agreed to cancel the fines as a ‘goodwill gesture’

    Furious drivers were slapped with £70 fines when a street in north Wales was turned into a ‘disabled only’ bay overnight.

    Rows of cars parked on Queen Street in Rhyl, were hit with the £70 fixed penalty notices when new restricted parking signs popped up.

    The move was branded as ‘disgraceful’ as drivers say they did not know about the changes.

    Some motorists said they had been parking on Queen Street for many years and hadn’t noticed new signs that popped up recently detailing the changes.

    Locals vented their anger at the move by Denbighshire Council which they believed would be harmful to local businesses in the town. 

    One man Tony Wright, said: ‘Absolute joke. Just putting the final nail in the coffin, town is dying as it is this will just kill it off.

    Furious locals said the change happened 'without warning' and vented their anger at the move by Denbighshire Council which they believed would be harmful to local businesses in the town

    Keith Taylor wrote: ‘Local retailers both large and small, have had a hard enough year already without this adding to their lack of footfall.’ 

    Denbighshire Council has now agreed to cancel the parking fines as a ‘goodwill gesture.’

    A council spokesman said: ‘We are aware some motorists have been issued penalty charge notices on Queen Street, Rhyl, for parking in the loading/disabled bays that have recently been introduced.

    ‘As a goodwill gesture we will be cancelling those penalty charge notices.’    

    Denbighshire Council said the changes were introduced as part of town centre improvement works.  

    They claim the aim of the new road layouts is to ‘facilitate social distancing and make it easier for people to travel actively within town centres.’
