If you want something to keep you laughing through the long dark days between Christmas and New year, buy this great book. I couldn't believe the lengths traffic wardens will go to to issue tickets. I really enjoyed the way it's been presented. You can dip in and out at will and I often found myself laughing out loud. I saw Barrie Segal on the Richard and Judy show which is what prompted me to buy the book and I'm glad I did.

The true stories in "The Parking Ticket Awards" will leave you open-mouthed in disbelief and chuckling out loud. Not only is it a really funny read but it is also an extremely informative one and shows how anyone can fight an unfair parking ticket. Barrie Segal clearly knows his stuff and this book contains a wealth of little gems. Highly recommended.

This book deals with a serious subject in a light, funny and entertaining way. If you have wondered why it is so easy to get a parking ticket this days, all the information is in this book. There are examples galore of the dirty tricks that are used to issue parking tickets and no vehicle is safe. Examples are a funeral hearse outside a church, a bus at a stop picking up passengers, yellow lines painted overnight under parked cars and tickets being slapped on in minutes the next morning. Of course, things are likely to get worse as the cash-strapped local authorities and their over-eager parking attendants think of more creative ways to fleece the ever put upon motorist of their hard earned cash. Actually, this book could save you from become a cash cow for the parking authorities. Buy it, read it, chuckle at the anecdotes, learn from it and arm yourself with knowledge to avoid those parking tickets or how to appeal if you are unlucky to be issued with one. This book is worth every penny you would have paid for it!!!!!
