Traffic wardens 'pressured' into issuing tickets

 

A judge has warned that traffic wardens expected to issue a minimum quota of tickets were being coerced into acting in a “predatory and sometimes dishonest” manner.

 The practice was exposed by parking warden Hakim Berkani, 45, who was sacked for refusing to issue large numbers of tickets.

Mr Berkani won his employment tribunal after judge Jeremy Burns ruled that his opposition to the secret quota scheme could not “justify dismissal”.

The father of two, from Wandsworth, south London, lost his job last February after tipping off a driver who was about to be given a ticket.

Mr Berkani claimed that he was harassed and eventually dismissed by NSL, the contractor, because he preferred to warn motorists that they had parked illegally rather than issue a fine.

Details of the minimum quota policy were disclosed in evidence after other wardens revealed that they were under pressure to meet secret targets.
