Cowboy clampers defeated by a proper sense of fair play

For years British motorists have pick on by the politicians.

They have been a soft feel for police looking for an easy way to notch up their conviction rate. Politicians see them as an chance to raise much-needed revenue for The Treasury coffers.

But cheer up - there are signs the tide is rotating. The legalized extortion of the cowboy clampers is to end.

Of course private assets should be respected but the current arrangements allowed clamping firms to set their individual rules and to charge what they liked. Warning signs were sometimes hidden following trees. The clamping firm goons could immobilize a vehicle and then March the owner off to the cash point to hand over £500 before release their car.
