A car dealer from Ruislip has been ordered to pay more than £2,000 in fines after repeatedly breaching parking rules and public orders.
Manazer Shah, of Long Drive, was taken to Ealing Magistrates’ Court by Hillingdon Council on Tuesday, December 5. The case was proved in his absence.
Shah was first issued with a notice in February of last year, when enforcement officers noted he had repeatedly been parking vehicles on roads and land in Ruislip without vehicle registration numbers, insurance and tax.
Vehicles connected to his car dealership, M Cars London, had also been placed in public parking bays and on highways.
A notice was issued ordering Shah to immediately stop these actions, which he ignored and breached seven times between its issuing date and April 2023.
As a result, Shah was fined £660, ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £264 and to pay the council’s prosecution costs of £1,420.72, bringing the total cost up to £2,344.72.
Councillor Eddie Lavery, Hillingdon Council’s cabinet member for residents services, said: “This case highlights an individual who had scant regard for others and served to benefit only himself.
“We listened to residents when they raised concerns and set the wheels in motion for this outcome which is to be celebrated.
“I commend our team for its work in bringing this excellent result.”
