Police said they 'ran out' of fixed penalty notices at local beauty spot

Police have said they "ran out" of fixed penalty notices on Sunday while attending Ballintoy Harbour.

In a social media post they said :

"Today between our calls for service (999 and 101 calls) we attended Ballintoy Harbour once again. Unfortunately for around 30 drivers, it wasn’t an all pleasant sunny day. All of these drivers were issued with fixed penalty notices for a number of offences ranging from ‘parking within 15 metres of a junction’ and ‘obstructing a road with a motor vehicle.’ As well as this we were also trying to assist with the facilitation  of a funeral which needed to get down to Ballintoy Church.Unfortunately we ran out of tickets after we emptied the third ticket book and we were diverted to another incident. Amongst ticketing these persons we also attended two Road Traffic Collisions which resulted in two arrests for Driving with Excess Alcohol in Breath/Unfit through Drink or Drugs, Domestic incidents, dealt with 3 missing people, rehomed a dog, stolen vehicles and much more. Please remember when parking anywhere to think, “Am I parking safely, legally and can emergency services with vehicles such as fire appliances pass with ease?” If the answer is no…then don’t park!
