A recent tribunal hearing exposed the fact that traffic wardens are expected to meet minimum quotas that could lead to tickets being issued unnecessarily. A warden who blew the whistle was sacked, following which he won a tribunal hearing for unfair dismissal. When interviewed he expressed disappointment that more wardens weren’t prepared to back him up and admit to the practice. The warden, Hakim Berkani, was employed by enforcement company NSL, who sacked him for gross misconduct because he preferred to warn motorists when they were parked illegally rather than issue a ticket.

During the 3 day tribunal Berkani supplied emails that revealed that wardens had to issue an ‘absolute minimum’ of 10 tickets a day. NSL denied that they had a set minimum number of tickets to be issued each day.

However, no other wardens would come forward to confirm what Berkani had claimed because they feared losing their jobs according to Berkani. Should we really be surprised about this, it’s been claimed for years? By Graham Hill

    Work in Monton, Eccles the traffic wardens there are killing the local shopping using back alleys behind the shops to get to side streets to ticket motorists within 2/5 minutes or parking up. It would be great to get covert cameras on them. One shop owner saw a warden ticket over 10 motorists in 1 hour
