The Castries Constituency Council in connection and the City Police generated $237,500.00 EC in illegal parking fines for the period 12th March 2019 to 31st July 2019, according to a council official.
The parking fines were imposed amid a fresh campaign by the City Police to ticket motorists engage in unauthorized parking in parking lots around Derek Walcott Square, the official told St Lucia Times.
The campaign followed complaints from motorists who pay for the parking spaces around the square, but find them occupied by unauthorised vehicles, according to reports.
Documents indicate that the City Police issued a total of nine hundred and fifty traffic tickets during the period from March to July 2019.
Each ticket was valued at two hundred and fifty dollars, according to information obtained by St Lucia Times.
