Hi, I was on a one-way road with double yellows and needed to answer a phone-call. Another car came and parked on the opposite side of the road (in the same direction); therefore, there was not much space for a car to go past so I climbed the kerb and was stationary for about 2 mins. I don't know if it's of any relevance, but I had my break lights on all the way and moved off within a couple of minutes. One of those small cctv cars came up behind me and then drove off. I received a ticket not too long after. I have written an appeal saying that I had to get on the pavement to let other cars past but haven't received a reply yet. I've attached pic's. I was wondering the following: 1: My logic tells me that I wasn't "parked", but is that legally the case. 2: I honestly had no idea that what I was doing was against the law, I don't recall reading anything like that in the highway code and despite a lot of googling and still cant even find clear info on it so how can they penalise someone for it? 3: Does anyone have any advice on how and if I can successfully appeal this? Thanks in advance for any help offered.
I am absolutely fuming. They left a very explicit message making it quite clear who they were on my work answerphone which is obviously a work phone as the message states the department and hospital. They are threatening to turn up on my doorstep (they have my old address) but nevertheless, I'm so angry I could spit. I have previously offered them monthly repayments which they turned down as they said it was too low (was £30 a month for a £500 debt).
