The driver of the car M21PKE will be returning to their vehicle this weekday morning (08:52), to find they have no vehicle.
Parking services actually runs at a loss for the city, and the actual overhead of towing a car not only costs a lot, it appears to bring all motor traffic to a halt, as the lorry blocks the other lane heading in to down, forcing them to swerve in to the oncoming lanes.
The bikes and pedestrians are unhindered. The economics of towing (max: one vehicle per hour) show why clamping is something to consider. Yes, it leaves the bus lane blocked, but it warns everyone off, and is much easier to go round clamping a set of cars than towing them.
