A MILLIONAIRE claims to use double yellows as his own “VIP parking spot” – and doesn’t even care about the fines.
Luke Desmaris has paid 100 parking tickets totalling over £7,000 for his antics in the past year alone.
But he claims “money doesn’t matter” so is happy to pay the yellow envelopes that amass on the windscreen of his £90,000 BMW M4.
El de 27 años – who claims to earn “£100,000 per month” through online trading – argues parking on a double yellow “saves time”.
The millionaire’s parking preference has now caught the eye of over three million people after a TikTok video of him in action went viral.
The controversial two clips show Luke casually walking from London’s Harrods and £1,000-a-night Middle Eight Hotel towards his Beemer.
Yellow fixed penalty notices (FPNs) – £65 each – can be seen on his windscreen, yet the voiceover explains “broke people see a fine, but I see VIP parking”.
El británico – who in videos tells viewers “making £30,000 per month isn’t hard” – faces getting his motor towed if he carries on his ways.
But the sixth-form dropout, who claims to own a £1.5million home, justified the stunt by explaining “parking in London is a nightmare”.
Lucas, from Chelmsford, Essex, dicho: “I started by getting a few [multas] here and there and ever since I started doing well, No importa. Money doesn’t matter.

“I’m not blocking anything or doing anything wrong apart from the rules state there’s a yellow line there so you can’t park there.”
El video, simply captioned ‘VIP parking’, has users split on whether it’s a “great idea” or if he should be fined even more.
One hit out: “This is why fines should be proportionate to what you earn or per car. £30 for a Ford, £3k for a Ferrari.”
Otro dijo “should get three points for parking fines” while others simply commented to call Luke a ‘b***end’.
Confronting his critics, the former delivery driver hit back: “I’ll do what I want… At the end of the day, No me importa.
“If people have controversial videos which people are going to have opposing opinions on, you’re going to get negative feedback so it doesn’t bother me in the slightest.”
Some users backed him, agregando: “In central London it’s cheaper to get a parking fine than paying for a parking space for the day.”
A second agreed: “I’m older than you and I’ve seen things exactly the same way as you for years – I couldn’t agree more.”
The City of London Corporation, the governing body of the City of London, say parking fines are typically £130 but are reduced to £65 if paid within 14 days of it being issued.
The Sun Online has approached the City of London Police and The City of London Corporation for comment.
