Parking Fines Website

London motorist Matt Richardson was so annoyed about receiving what he felt was an unfair parking ticket that he has set up a website designed to help others in his position.

It's called Majicari, and it includes parking news, parking facts, a Hall of Fame for decent and worthy traffic wardens, details of parking petitions and so on.

It also gives people a chance for people to have their tickets paid for. The idea here is that you submit your own story about a parking charge, and if enough people vote in sympathy with it you will have your ticket reimbursed - out of Matt Richardson's own pocket intially, and then from site advertising.

"According to our own research," says Richardson, "we estimate that more than half a million motorists receive parking tickets each day in cities around the world. How many of these tickets are a harsh call? I wanted to create a website to cater for the millions of miserable motorists who feel they have been treated unfairly.

"With the likes of Bristol, Newcastle and Westminster all introducing pay by phone parking systems, I can envisage even more unfair penalty fines occurring as these systems may have teething problems. At Majicari, we hope to champion the rights of long-suffering motorists and turn negative scenarios into positive ones."
