The government has provoked anger among motorists after confirming that it is considering raising the cap on parking fines outside London from its current level of £70.

Norman Baker, the Transport Secretary, told MPs that he was considering the hike after it was suggested that parking prices have risen so much that, "the penalty no longer becomes a deterrent."
