Petersfield residents will expect parking violations to be
recorded in Latin in future: Non illigitamus carborundum
Hampshire Police and East Hampshire District Council expect to recruit incredibly well-qualified personnel for their new traffic patrol service after they let slip the pay rate.
Between them, the two organisations have agreed to fund 500 hours of traffic wardenry between now and April 2011.
Officials at Penalties Place have put aside £5,000 for the nine-month service and this figure is being matched by Hampshire Police.
So that’s £10,000 for 500 hours. Or an incredible £20 an hour. Wandering around Petersfield with a notebook and hat has never been so lucrative.
