British drivers are being hit with thousands of fines for breaching the rules of the road and parking regulations, making council’s as much as £200,000 an hour.

New figures revealed after Freedom of Information requests have shown where the most likely places across the UK are to be hit with a ticket.

Over all last year motorists were given £1.6billion in fines by local authorities, the equal to £200,000 an hour, reports the Daily Express.

Of the total, a quarter were in parking fines while the rest of the charges included driving in bus lanes or time restrictions on roads.

The Alliance of British Drivers have slammed councils for ‘milking motorists’ and said it is ‘undoubtedly the case that councils are using parking fines’ to generate money.

Western Road in Brighton and Hove (pictured bottom middle) was the most expensive street outside of London, earning the council £205,790 in fines last year
