4X4 pavement parker is shocked

Miss Hayes, 25, could barely believe it was Annie Draper who had gouged three deep Xs into the £20,000 car.

A note left on the windscreen read: ‘Pavement = people, cars = road’.

Why didn’t the Crown Prosecution Service decide that this prosecution was not in the public interest?

Because cars are sacred objects and deliberately damaging them is a very, very serious matter. A fine of £200 reflects the gravity of the offence – that’s £20 more than you get for running down and killing four cyclists.
