Car insurance customers who are travelling to Majorca on holiday this year will find it more difficult to get away with any parking tickets they receive.

Police in Palma have started to clamp down on tourists who abuse local parking laws and escape without punishment, as it is difficult to track down offenders once they have left the country, the Daily Mirror reports.

As part of a pilot scheme being launched in Palma this summer, police will cut the number of car insurance customers who are parking illegally, with the local authority expecting them to collectively spend approximately £133,500.

The cash will be collected by a private company and the scheme is set to run for ten months.

If it proves to be successful, a higher number of illegal parkers may have to cough up money in future because there are plans to roll it out all over Europe.
