Public Sector Information Holder: Transport

Information Asset: Parking Fines issued by street/area, only date + time of fine is required

The problem

I and a number of friends have been issued parking fines over the UK and I am wondering where the hotspots are for fining so that I can avoid specific areas just in case I am unable to return to my car within the non-permit holder areas in time.

My ideal solution

The time + date of parking fines issued both on permit only, non-permit within time periods and all other areas so that I can calculate where to make sure I don't leave my car by the frequency of fines given out for that area.

What I would do

I would look to determine which areas are high risk of being given a parking fine and therefore make sure I can avoid those areas.

General Election Information

Public Sector Information Holder: The Electoral Commission

Information Asset: All information relating to General Elections

The problem

Although the Electoral Commission has a breakdown of votes in particular constituencies, they do not provide the (very cool) SPARQL interface for querying this information.

My ideal solution

I would like to query the information to work out what would have happened if we were under a different voting system at the time.

What I would do

Create a website that took the overall vote at the time and apply the Single-Transferable-Vote/Proportional Representation to it, to highlight the need for a change in the voting system in this country.
