The RAC Foundation has called for councils to stop ripping motorists off, after it emerged that they are making up to £38 million by installing pay-and-display parking machines that don't offer change. The motorists' group revealed that councils in England charged a staggering £1.4 billion for parking between 2012 and 2013 - making £594 million profit. Further analysis emerged that £38 million of it could come from machines that don't offer change.

And this is far from the only recent outrageous parking decision.%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%
