Scotland's councils make £40m from parking charges
Scottish local authorities have been making £40m annually from parking charges, according to figures from the RAC Foundation.
The motoring organisation said the councils took £79.3m from drivers in charges and penalties.
The £40m represents the surplus after the cost of running parking activities.
The Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (Cosla) said parking charges were "rightly and properly" a matter for councils to decide.
