Supercar drivers slapped with £130 fines for parking on double yellow lines as fleet worth millions descend on London

0


SUPERCAR owners have been clocking up a bumper numbers of tickets in London as they continue to think they are above the law.

Some of the world’s most desirable motors – including 200mph Ferraris and uber-rare Porsches – have been spotted illegally parked on the capital’s poshest streets.

Luxury motors from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the Emirates and Kuwait have become an increasingly common sight during the summer in recent years.

And it is becoming pretty clear their super-wealthy owners are clearly not worried about the £80 to £130 fines they risk if they dump their cars on double yellow lines.

Every year playboys from the Middle East pay tens of thousands to ship their motors to the UK as they take a break from the blistering heat at home.

As The Sun Online has previously pointed out, searching for a parking space is a daily struggle for most Londoners.

But Arab tycoons don’t appear to suffer from this problem – as they opt to park where they like as they see the fines as nothing more than loose change.

In fact, even the heftiest fine could ultimately set a supercar driver back less than the cost of a quick oil change.

The cars that arrive in London once a year are often one-off versions of already exclusive models.

Not only are they are magnet for car lovers they are also clearly proving a big hit with traffic wardens.

These misplaced motors aren’t the only performance vehicles to fall foul of the law in London.


 

In 2016, a fleet of Qatari-registered supercars were spotted around the capital covered in parking fines.

And last year, the driver of a £100,000 BMW i8 was hit with an £80 fine after parking illegally while visiting a diamond shop in Hatton Garden.

Kensington and Chelsea council has already put in place a ban on motorists from revving engines, sudden acceleration and racing on the streets of Knightsbridge following complaints.
