A motorist had expressed his anger after being unexpectedly given his first parking ticket – in front of the house where he has lived since 1981.

David Wright, also known as Ian, has lived near Everton’s Goodison Park stadium for more than 40 years and says he’s never had a parking permit in that time.

Swanston Avenue, where he lives, is close to Premier League ground and there is a parking zone where residents can get permits so they don’t get fined.

Mr Wright accepts he may not have renewed his permit but says he was still shocked when his car was hit with a ticket on the evening of January 3, the Liverpool Echo reports.

He said he has never had an issue in the area and questioned the timing of his fine as the council is trying to make budget savings.

He said: “They say my permit has expired, but I think that happened before the season started and I haven’t had tickets until now – in fact I haven’t had tickets since I’ve lived here in 1981.

“If it has been out of date all along, why am I only now being fined?

“Suddenly the Council is on my case and issuing a ticket for my car parked in front of my house at 7.30pm at night when it is pitch black. Are you short of cash?’

“Is the community bad enough that they have to squeeze money out of retirees like me in an already disadvantaged area? It goes without saying that I challenged this penalty order in writing and with photos.’

Liverpool Council confirmed that the permit in question expired last September and the fine was therefore correctly issued.

The local authority said Mr Wright has until January 27 to pay the reduced rate and is welcome to appeal the decision if he so chooses.

The council added that resident parking permits are renewed annually and Mr Wright can apply for an extension at any time.
