Throughout the year 166 fines were handed out in Bourne, while only 78 were given in Market Deeping.

Across the district the five top reasons for drivers being fined were for parking for longer than permitted, parking on single or double yellow lines, parking in a taxi rank, parking in a loading place, and parking in a permit zone without a permit.

In South Kesteven there are two traffic wardens who monitor towns and villages across the district.
