Ferrari Owner Fined For Parking Over Two Spaces!

Owner claims innocence after purchasing two parking tickets!

3y ago

The owner of this Ferrari California T was left furious after being fined for parking his Italian supercar over two spaces in a car park.

The owner, Kevin McWhinney, a sausage maker from Northern Ireland said he had paid for two parking tickets, one to cover each space he had parked over. The sausage maker said he did this because his car is very valuable and also quite wide for a standard parking space. The owner also has had his vehicle damaged before when parking the Ferrari in a standard car parking space.

The Ferrari California T is powered by a 3.9L V8 engine, producing 552BHP, a 0-60MPH time of 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 196MPH. The owner appealed the ticket, which was later rejected by the local council. The owner of the car said that he'd been parking his car over 2 parking spaces for any years without having any trouble with tickets.

  • If he paid for two spaces, then two spaces he shall get!

  • Since he paid for it, he shouldn't get fined for it. I can guarantee if it was caravan under same circumstances, they would get away with it. What an ugly mindset some people have.

  • Always look for a parallel parking space. It's safer.

  • There will be a quirk in the by laws that says something like you can only park in one space, and it will be regardless of circumstance. Only because no one thought a person would actually pay for 2 spots and park over them. If they did think of it as a possibility then they just could not care to find a solution to this.

    It would have been better if the council gave a warning in this case and let the owner off. The driver should probably reframe from public parking unless he was prepared to join the throng of beat up, keyed up and doored general public. I know I would keep this one at home. Terrible indictment isn't it, but that's ownership of an exotic car for you.

    • I personally think that it is legit to pay for two parking spaces regardless of what the authority think, if you have an expensive car and don’t want any minor or major damage... oviously your going to pay for more space to protect your...

    • Guess its country dependent. I worked as a parking attendant in Norway and came across this quite often with cars with trailers. Two spaces, two tickets no fine
