Former traffic wardens allege lack of tickets cost them jobs

Two
former traffic wardens have claimed they were sacked by a local authority
because they were not issuing enough parking tickets, according to the Daily
Mail newspaper.

Phil
Mansell and Bruce Edwards,
who worked for Bromsgrove District Council, alleged that managers followed them
around and told them to target Royal Mail vans, police cars and paramedics’
vehicles.

The
two men claimed they received a letter from their manager telling them to
increase the number of thickets they issued a day from 14 to an average of 19.6.

They
said they complained about this and were dismissed soon after. But because they
were still on their probationary period they could not take legal action.

The
council admitted that it monitored staff performance, but denied that it had a
ticket quota for wardens.
