Manchester crashed taxi driver has parking ticket cancelled
A taxi driver who was given a parking ticket despite having just been involved in an accident has had his penalty cancelled.
Mohammed Arif, 37, filmed a traffic warden issuing the ticket as he awaited assistance in Manchester city centre.
NSL, Manchester City Council's parking enforcement contractor, said the behaviour of the warden - who has since resigned - was "wholly unacceptable".
The council and NSL have decided the ticket will not be enforced.
A council spokesman said: "We have clear guidelines and our traffic wardens are instructed not to issue parking tickets in circumstances where motorists have been forced to park following road traffic accidents."
