Wardens mounted a crackdown on illegal parking as Hull Fair came to a close.
Tens of cars were slapped with tickets in and around Chanterlands Avenue last night.

Nearby residents expressed their glee at action to address the long-running issue of illegal parking, but it came as a nasty surprise to those returning from the fun of the fair's final night.
Parking wardens were captured on camera giving out fines to cars which were haphazardly parked on grass verges and double yellow lines after police tweeted that the stadium car park was full.
The final night of the fair saw huge crowds, meaning that many couldn't get parked nearby - but residents living in close proximity to the fair said they were glad to see fines being issued.
The thorny issue of visitors using residential streets for parking reared its head once again, with many taking to social media to vent their frustrations.
One resident said: "People come down our street and park for free but often for longer than permitted and/or inconsiderately, on the double yellows, half on the paths, blocking drives, on tight bends.
"They return to their cars noisily, shouting because they've got used to the volume of the fair, rubbish in dumped in our garden. Yes Hull Fair has been around longer than I've lived here but the level of consideration is increasing year on year."
Another posted: "Never known it as bad as this...there must be at least 100 cars parked in the central reservation and nobody is doing anything about it... police have driven past half a dozen times... not interested!!! "
A nurse who lives nearby said she was unable to park near her home and had to abandon attempts and go to her dad's house for tea, and when she tried again at 8.45pm it still took her 20 minutes to find a spot
She added: "Today I went to work (I'm a nurse if it makes a difference, but it shouldn't) and I returned home and had nowhere to park my car, so went to my dad's for tea.
"On returning home at 8.45pm parking was just as bad as ever we drove around for a good 20 minutes before we saw someone park across two spaces.
"I had to get out and ask him to move up with luckily he did. He told me he'd been driving round for nearly an hour to get parked.
"People who blame fair or say you choose to live there, they're not the issues, fair isn't the issue, the issue is inconsiderate people who have no regard for anyone but their own laziness at getting a bus, or walking further or paying £5 to park instead of trying to get a "free" space."
Another resident called for better parking management for next year, adding: "Something needs to be sorted out for next year, parking has been ridiculous on our street."
