Motorists caught breaking on-street parking regulations in Armagh city collectively amassed more than 2,500 tickets last year.
And to put that another way, it equates to more than seven a day.
In all, a total of 2,592 parking tickets were issued in Armagh last year – and that’s just for ‘on-street’ parking offences.
