Company pleads guilty to parking vehicles for sale on a public highway

Auto City Trader Ltd, whose Director, Muhammad Akhtar, appeared in court on Friday 19 April, pleaded guilty to two offences of exposing vehicles for sale on a public highway and must pay a total of £2,823.

Slough Magistrates’ Court heard how Auto City Trader Ltd parked vehicles for sale on Lascelles Road, Slough, SL3 7PW. They were previously fined for the same behaviour in 2022.

Auto City Trader Ltd was convicted and fined £76 for each of the two offences, meaning a £152 fine to mark the offences after giving credit for an early guilty plea, and must pay prosecution costs of £2,610 and a victim surcharge of £61, making a total of £2,823. 

Linda Corcoran, Resilience and Enforcement Lead, said: “We hope this will be a deterrent to both Auto City Trader Ltd and anyone else who is considering parking vehicles for sale on Sloughs streets, or indeed in the car parks of our local parks. This nuisance parking not only causes problems for local residents to park but can stop residents enjoying local amenities such as Upton Court Park. This is illegal and we won’t hesitate to take action whenever necessary. 

“We will continue to monitor hotspots in the borough and would encourage residents to let us know if they see this occurring on 01753 475111 or via the website: Nuisance parking – Slough Borough Council .”
