Driveway rental scheme targets company car drivers and commuters

Company car drivers and commuters facing parking clampdowns from local authorities are being urged to rent a driveway near their place of work to avoid parking tickets.

Online parking marketplace YourParkingSpace.co.uk said the number of parking offences committed by company car drivers increased by more than a third in 2016, thought largely to be due to a crackdown by local government.

Harrison Woods, managing director at YourParkingSpace.co.uk, said “The daily drive to work is a battleground for many motorists, often leaving them exhausted before the working day has even started.

“Finding a nearby parking place and avoiding penalty fines are just two of these hurdles, yet the parking solution of renting a driveway could be on the doorstep of their workplace without them even knowing.

“The same is also true for business meetings in crowded city centres where the cost of traditional parking on the day can be staggering yet easily avoided.”
