HARTLEPOOL, England, June 22 (UPI) -- A British man said he received a $113 parking ticket when a camera car snapped a picture of his vehicle while he was dropping a friend off at a bus stop.
Paul Robinson, 50, of Hartlepool, said he received a fixed penalty notice for parking at a bus stop "from 12:41 p.m. to 12:41 p.m." when he in fact had only stopped "for seconds" to drop a friend off at the stop, The Sun reported Wednesday.
"They're not getting a penny out of me. I'd rather go to court," Robinson said.
The pictures were taken by a camera car, which began touring the streets of the city last month in a bid to catch traffic violators. The car distributed 438 tickets in its first four weeks, Hartlepool Council said.
