The Isle of Wight Chronicle has learnt that council traffic wardens on the island are giving out fixed penalty notices to other council contracted companies
One traffic warden from Newport issued a fixed penalty notice to the Isle of Wight councils public convenience cleansing contractor, Connaught after they parked outside the public toilets in Newport to clean the area.
We spoke to the cleaner branded in Isle of Wight council logos and was shocked to find out this is not the first time it has happened as a few days prior the same cleaner received a ticket for parking down sea street Newport.
We was also informed that the public convenience cleansing group are not immune from fines and have to pay them just like everyone else. Sue Turner, who saw it happen told the IW Chronicle:
“I was completely shocked to see the council traffic warden fining what looked like another council worker, I know they should not be parked up on double yellow lines but this was a council worker cleaning our streets. It would be interesting to know how many times this does happen and who pays these fines”
