A driver given a £60 parking ticket was fined another £75 after he threw it out of the window of his car.
The motorist, who has remained unnamed, was issued with the penalty notice in Ammanford, Camarthanshire. However, before leaving a car park he threw the notice out of the car window and onto the floor, which was noticed by a passer-by.
The witness then reported it to the council, who then issued the driver with another fixed penalty littering notice for £75, bringing his total to £135 for both charges.
Councillor Jim Jones told the Daily Mail: "I hope this sends out the message that people cannot get away with breaking the law in this way." Jones has environmental responsibilities at Carmarthenshire County Council.
He added: "The man thought he could get away with avoiding a fine for the parking offence by throwing the ticket away; but now he has incurred a further ticket for dropping litter."
This comes after another motorist was fined after throwing away a penalty notice in Ammanford.
Two months ago a woman threw here notice down a drain, only for it to be retrieved and the driver reported. In this instance, the woman had parked in a taxi rank before being issued with the notice. She was traced through the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency in order to issue with the littering notice.
