About Me


  1. Hello! I received a PCN Code 26 for parking straight onto a single yellow line. This is a quiet section of road in front of the Windmill Pub in Clapham Common. I've lived in the area for 6 years and park here every saturday morning, and always pull nose into the spots, as all the other cars do as well. I received a PCN code 26 "Vehicle parked more than 50 cms from the edge of the carriageway and not within a designated parking place." However as the pictures show, i literally could not have been closer to the yellow line. The parking as been
  2. Hey guys, Looking for a bit of help. Got this parking ticket while dropping my daughters medicine off to nursery. I was literally in and out. I have checked the signs and road markings, I don't think I have grounds to appeal on those. My only saving grace might be the fact that the ticket was issued at 9.50 am and it was observed from 9.50 to 9.50. I know some councils have an observation period but I couldn't find anything relating to this on Havering councils website. I found some in Camden council (3 minutes) and Brighton council (5 minutes). Could
  3. Good morning, In need of advice/direction My road has now been converted into residents parking zone Monday - Sunday 8am - 6.30pm----very excessive, but its done so ho home. I have a permit for my road. On the day of the offence yes my vehicle was parked at 9.03am, because i had just returned from dropping my 2 boys to school and had to pick up some pots to drop off to my mother who lives in Grays/Essex...about 20 minutes drive on the A13 from my house. went to my mums but didn't stay long. On the way back home my daughter complained of tummy ache (infact
  4. Hello I'm hoping I can get some help/advice please. Two days ago I received a PCN from Kingston Council stating that I had committed a moving traffic offence for contravention 52 - failing to comply with a prohibition on certain types of vehicle. The alleged offence happened on 17/11/16 and the PCN was dated 25/11/16. They have supplied 4 CCTV pictures which show my car in colour in 3 pictures but you cannot read the registration. The fourth picture is blacked out and clearly shows just my registration number. The road traffic signs are in the pictures but the
  5. I am disabled and have a vehicle for use by carers including my two daughters. I received a PCN dated 06/07/2015 alleging the offence took place on 10/02/2015. Furthermore, they had no photographic evidence showing the vehicle parked in a bay without a ticket, instead relying on the entry/exit photographs. My daughter who had the vehicle that day says that she got a ticket but she may have put an incorrect registration, albeit still a valid one. I have ignored their letters, but today received a County Court Summons. I intend to refute the claim because of the da
  6. Lambeth Council issued PCN on 21/9 for Contravention 622 Vehicle was parked on clients private driveway with consent, its a new van and was backed up tight to the clients house, the client had moved his vehicle to the street as he had permit. The van/vehicles front 2 wheels were just on the footpath, there was no obstruction to the footpath and a double buggy could easily get past, it was also a wide foot path. 622 does state with one or two wheels on any part on an urban road other than a carriageway (foot way parking) ((partly on foot way). Do i have a case to contest a
  7. Hi, I received a parking ticket some weeks ago at 13:41 under code 05 - parking after my ticket had expired. I had in fact purchased a (second) ticket at 13:40 not realising that this was a one hour no return zone. I would accept a ticket under contravention stating that I parked again in a no return zone but surely I shouldn't accept a ticket under code 05 as I had paid when the ticket was issued! Please can you give me your thoughts!
  8. Hi guys, i've been trying to register to other forums (more than 14 days!!) but cant even register, thank this website i was able to register and post for help!! I have a PCN here with correct picture and vehicle registration number, but the contravention address is not printed clearly, cannot even read it. The stated junction does not exist; Colney Hatch Lane with Alexandra Road. The juniction with Colney Hatch Lane is Alexandra PARK road, not Alexandra Road. Although Alexadra Road exists near Colny Hatch Lane, it is not a junction with it. google maps coords: 51.603039, -0.14
  9. Evening guys and Merry Xmas on a pleasant December afternoon I received a letter from TFL (PCN attached below) dated 14/12/2015 for an offence that apparently took place on 29/07/2015 in Stamford Hill (Hackney). Contravention: 46: Stopped where prohibited (on a red route or clearway). The PCN further goes on to say that... The PCN was served by post because a Civil enforcement officer 'T' observed the vehicle identified above from 11:11 to 11.11 and had begun to prepare a PCN but the vehicle concerned was driven away from the place in which it was stationary before
  10. I seem to be almost permanently employed challenging PCN's collected by the missus these days. I just wish she'd find a new hobby. The PCN describes this contravention as: All of which leaves us completely mystified, coz: 1. A valid permit for the zone is clearly displayed in the car's windscreen. 2. It is not a pay & display parking zone. 3. She confirmed on at least 2 occasions via tel/call to Bexley Council that our permit is valid in any local zone N parking area, even where this zone encroaches on an adjacent council. 4. She has parked in this road incident-free s
  11. Hi I parked my bike illigally in wandsworth london, i thought i was going to be quick enough not to get a ticket oops Now on the ticket i have been done for parking in a loading bay and the photos taken show the loading bay sign and everything. The thing is the photo of the bike clearly shows its not parked in a loading bay and is parked on double yellow lines. Surely the alledged contravention never took place, i was never parked in a loading bay and i have photographic proof of it. Is this ticket invalid??
  12. Hi guys (again), I hope somebody can help with this. I've just got a parking ticket from Wandsworth Council (again) for being "parked in a special enforcement area adjacent to a dropped footway, cycle track or verge lowered to meet the level of the carriageway". At that moment I was doing a big removal (Ashvale Rd, SW17) and as you can see from the photos there was no chance to park my van anywhere on that road so I parked right on the kerb (it was the only place to do it). I don't feel really confident with this one but just wanted to hear what do you have to say about this.
  13. Hi I am hoping someone, anyone can please give me the answer to my question. I have recieved a parking ticket by the LA for contravention 27, parking adjacent to a lowered footway. The ticket said I had done this in a controlled parking zone but the area I parked was a council estate and has two 'zone ENDS' signs on entering. I thought 'zone ENDS' means it is not a controlleed parking area. Have I got this wrong? Is the ticket valid or should I appeal?
  14. Hi, We just heard that our first appeal against this PCN has been rejected so I thought I'd better seek some advice before submitting a second one. The story is that: 1) We wanted to stay for the maximum 2 hour limit in a Teignbridge District Council (Devon) car park. Like many kids, our 6 year old son likes to put the money in the machine so we gave him two pound coins but, unfortunately, he pressed the green button before the machine had registered the 2nd coin so we ended up with a ticket for only 30 minutes and no change (as the machine would not return th
  15. I am am preparing an informal representation in response to a PCN. In retrospect, I've tracked down the evidence that supports the issuing of the PCN, but I believe I have a case to make. My mother and son live on a housing estate that is managed by a housing service. Although she is not a driver, my mother regularly buys, in person, 1 Calendar Day books of council issued permits for her visitors. When my son purchased his first vehicle, we used these council issued visitors' vouchers for parking on our estate (a temporary measure). BIG MISTAKE, as it turns out. When the first PCN appeared, w
  16. Hi, I could really do with some advice: I've received a 34J 'Being in a bus lane (in the hours of operation) on Commercial Road (Nr Beecroft St) Leeds - the time of the alleged offence is 06:07. I was driving back from an appointment - in a route I don't usually use, but have no recollection of driving in the bus lane - it's not something I usually do and I don't know if there is a turning or a petrol station there but, from the image, the road seems deserted. I've read a few posts where these penalty notices are based on the bus lane being 24hr so am assuming this is what has happen
  17. Help please. I have a blue badge and parked in what I thought was a legal space. It was a sunday and parking restrictions are lifted all day. I returned to find I had a PCN contravention code 12. " Parked in a resident's or shared use parking space without clearly displaying a permit or voucher or pay and display ticket issued for that place". I had missed the sign saying permit holders only. There were 2 permit holder spaces and 6 pay and display spaces.The pay and display machine states that payment is required Mon-sat in permitted spaces. I challenged the PCN and it has been decli
  18. Hi, Would appreciate some urgent help on this issue please as my deadline for appealing this PCN is just hours from expiring. I was recently visiting a local hospital (St Helier in Carshalton) and parked on a nearby street. Days later and to my horror, I received a PCN from Sutton Council stating that I had been guilty of the following parking regulation: Contravention Code: 62J Parked with one or more wheels on or over a footpath or any part of a road other than a carriageway. Naturally, I was rather peeve
  19. Hi, can someone please advise on the above? I am reading here that I shouldn't ignore. I had read on other forums that I should ignore. I have jotted a letter up basically stating that I will not pay due to the fee being disproportionate and according to the unfair consumer contract regs the charge must not exceed the cost to the landowner etc. I have also put that the signage is insufficient (which it is) so I was not made aware of the terms and conditions as I didn't see them. So I have not entered a contract etc. Is this the right thing to do? basically I have parked in the
  20. Hello all, I can do with some good advice about the above mentioned PCN. It was on Lymington Avenue N22. I parked (with legitimate Visitors Permit) well away from the immediate vicinity of a displayed suspension notice attached to a pole...about 25 metres away, only to return and be faced with a PCN on my car. I accosted the CEO and asked him why. He said the suspension affected the whole length of the street. Upon reading the notice I realised he wrote the MAKE of my car to be a Ford. Though he got the reg number, colour, and excise date right, my car is a Kia and n
  21. Hello all, Great forum! I was parked in a loading bay on Atlantic Road (see jpegs attached) this afternoon (Sunday 17th Nov 2013 at around 15.30). I had parked there to go and collect a pre paid item from WH Smith on Brixton road, the item is an e-reader which i ordered on line for delivery to my local store, for which I have the digital receipt. When I returned to my vehicle 3-5 min later a CEO was placing a ticket on my car, when I explained to him that i was collecting an item from WH smith he said that I should appeal to council as he was unable to remove the ticket as they wou
  22. Hi, I'm new to this group, so sorry if I have posted something incorrectly. I recently received a PARKING CONTRAVENTION CHARGE NOTICE from APCOA for 04-Not parked in a designated parking area. The carpark was full and I parked my car at the end of a line, where I was causing no obstruction whatsoever, there just happened to be no parking bay for my car. I also paid for my ticket. APCOA are requesting I either pay £50 in 14 days or £75 within 28 days else in the event of non-payment, APCOA will apply to the DVLA for registered vehicle keeper details to facilitate the recover
  23. Hi all, Just received my first ever PCN while watching LUFC. I parked on an unmarked unsurfaced road which I understand is unadopted by the council. There are no signs or bays on this particular stretch of unadopted road etc. however, looking at satellite images, about meters before turning into either side of the of road were I got the PCN there are signs which state the following 'resident permit parking only past this point on match days and events. The PCN contravention is code 12 is it enforceable. I have taken a screen shot of where I parked, approximately to the right of the
  24. I received a PCN from Lambeth Council on 25th Sept 2013, "32D Failing to drive in the direction shown by the arrow on a blue sign ...", (I turned right where I shouldn't have through a set of lights). They rejected my initial appeal and I eventually made a payment of £65, unfortunetly it was a couple of days late. I have now received a charge notice for a further £130 ( to make up the increased fine value of £195), and the normal threats of County Court action etc for none payment. Am I correct in my belief that having now taken/accepted the payment of £65 they have in effect "legally accep
  25. Hi Folks I received the following PCN in the post today at Hounslow High Street. It is for the contravention code 02. I was confused by a previous yellow line on the same road which permitted parking from 18:30 . However I did not notice a break in the yellow line and this new line had restrictions until 20:00. I was parked there at 19:54 so I missed out by 6 minutes L I need some guidance from the knowledgeable users here as to what action I should take. From their CCTV footage and still pictures, the zoom in shows the sign sidewa
