Currently parking fines disproportionately penalise the poorer in society: penalties for errant parking can be flouted by the rich as the monetary fine does not offer a punishment, while the costs to the poorest in society can be dramatic.
I therefore propose a system where errant drivers are publicly punished with corporal punishment outside the Town Hall each weekend, offering an identical punishment to the richest and poorest citizens and offering the same deterrent to all sections of Society.
Furthermore, this will still allow penalties to increase for non-payment (“from 40 to 60 spanks for example”) and varying levels of punishment depending on the transgression!
