A traffic warden who was filmed allegedly giving a ticket to a crashed taxi driver has resigned.
Taxi driver Mohammed Arif filmed the incident in Manchester, and the footage went viral after being put online.
While he claims that his cab is parked on double yellow lines as he has just been involved in a collision, the female traffic warden apparently doesn’t listen and continues to write out his ticket.
Having seen the footage Manchester Council have said they plan to investigate the incident.
A council spokesperson 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.
‘In this case, a ticket clearly should not have been given and if one was issued it will not be enforced. We are now reviewing the incident along with our contractors at NSL.’
While the traffic warden has now quit, Mr Arif said he was not hoping for her resignation and was only filming to have evidence in case he wanted to appeal the ticket.
‘I wouldn’t have wished for her to resign and I’m saddened that she has. My intention for filming was not to get her into trouble of any kind,’ he said.
