Around 3,000 parking tickets were given to motorists in Lincolnshire each month during the first year of civil parking enforcement.
Meanwhile, traffic wardens have reported 33 incidents of assault or abuse to police since the scheme began.
New figures show enforcement officers have slapped 36,009 fines on windscreens since December 3 last year.
And drivers in Lincoln racked up almost half of all tickets, with 16,794 issued in the city.
The most common parking offences have been parking on double yellow lines and breaching waiting time limits.
Councillor Richard Davies, executive member for Highways at Lincolnshire County Council, said: "I am pleased with the impact it's had. Parking spaces are available in streets where it had been difficult to find a space in the past, and you don't see nearly as many inconsiderately parked cars blocking up pavements.
"I've spoken to lots of businesses and members of the public who've been really happy with how things have gone. However, the aggression and abuse that's directed against our parking officers is shameful.
"People who attack our staff just see a uniform and not a person. At the end of the day these people are employed to do a job and deserve to be treated with respect. Ultimately our aim is not to issue any tickets, but it's a never ending task of educating drivers and encouraging them to be more compliant with parking restrictions.
"We have a settled team and the service is running efficiently so we don't have plans to hire more officers."
It is expected the scheme will generate a surplus of around £50,000 which must be invested into local transport projects.
Motorist Rob Fletcher, 38, from Bracebridge Heath, said he's surprised at the number of tickets that have been issued.
"If they are issuing that amount of tickets there is obviously still a problem but I am surprised the numbers are that high. Before, it was a free for all but now the word is out there. Personally I don't see much illegal parking now."
