The driver in Bradford was given a parking ticket after a mobile traffic camera captured images of him stationary at a bus stop. However, he wasn’t parked but was merely waiting at a red light.

The local council has since apologised and the man will not have to pay any fine.

According to the BBC, Victor Hankins had been waiting in traffic when he was snapped by a traffic enforcement camera. He appealed the ticket, and the council cancelled it and apologised. The council confirmed that all photographs were checked before tickets wer issued, but that in this instance somebody had made an error.

The victim of the mistake referred to the awarding of the ticket in the first place as “an absolute joke”.
