A UK man hailing from Coventry has been sent fine tickets and threatening letters for parking in a spot that he has rented from a private landlord. He has been hit with more than £2,000 (Rs 2 lakh) in fines for parking in his own driveway.

As per Coventry Live, the man first encountered problems when he once forgot to take out the parking permit inside his car. He then contacted Mainstay Residential to get a new permit but was told that no new permits were available and that an exemption would be put in place for him.

The exemption was clearly not taken into consideration by the UK Parking Control (UKPC), which kept issuing parking tickets against the man’s vehicle.

To his surprise, the fines didn’t end even after he sold his car. It got worse when UKPC lost the parking contract and it was taken over by a private company.

He was quoted saying to Coventry Live, “I tried telling them about it, but they said they were sending the matter to their solicitors to deal with – even though they didn’t tell me I needed a new permit.”

He said that he felt ‘parasitic’ as the companies were harassing him for something that is not his fault.

He said, “There was absolutely no legal basis to it saying they’re going to take me to court. So yeah, I just felt really stressed, really hopeless, it felt ridiculous,”

A spokesperson for the property management company informed that the fines have been scrapped.
