  1. Careparking where: Whitefield Metrolink Free carpark , Bury new rd , Whitefield, Manchester. (behind the station) Hi I hope you can all help me with this query on behalf of my father who is 80 years old. Attached are two photographs of my father's car parked clearly in a disabled bay but slightly too far to the right hand side. He had to park this way because on arrival the original car in the left-hand bay was parked at an angle and was impeding into the disabled bay, forcing him to part to the right hand side. He correctly displayed his disabled badge. My mother needs to have a full door opening access as a passenger and she is also 83 years old and is not very mobile. She was the passenger so he had to have space for her to get out. On returning to the car sometime later the original car had been replaced with the one in the photograph and he had a parking ticket for failing to park within the designated bay. He appealed to the parking company on the grounds that he had not impeded any other vehicles or prevented another vehicle parking in another bay and also mentioned that the car adjacent to the left HS has caused him to have to move over and that the car had been replaced since his return. As you can quite clearly see from the photographs there is plenty of room to the right hand side and the parking bay disabled chevrons can clearly be seen. I presume this is to allow access for a door to be opened fully for example, wheelchair access. As typically expected the parking company denied the appeal, ignored his explanation totally and sent him a popla code to start the next process to appeal to Popla. I have used this site previously with great success and really appreciate the knowledge that some of you on here have. However whilst he's not denying parking over the bay line, they're are circumstances that forced him to use this bay as others were available either. I am unsure of the correct argument to use with popla as clearly he is not impeding any other drivers which is the reason I would expect for parking wholly inside a bay. Before we write to appeal again I would appreciate any advice you may have. Thank you 5.pdf 4.pdf
  2. My wife has received a PCN from a Harrow Council civil enforcement officer, saying she was parked outside the parking bay markings where she parked. This was because a van had been parked similarly before the other drivers arrived and parked. The other drivers arriving to park were also having to park ouside their bay markings. None were grossly over their bay markings to take out a parking bay or to cause a danger to other drivers. Only my wife's car received a PCN. No video or photographic evidence is included with the Council's PCN record so there is no visual evidence from the Council to back up their officer's claim. My wife has a photo of another car similarly parked that did not have a PCN fixed to the windscreen and a witness statement confirming the details of the whole situation. What are the reasonable grounds for an appeal and is it likely that the PCN will be cancelled?
  3. [ATTACH=CONFIG]47225[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]47226[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]47227[/ATTACH]Hi Guys, Parked up at the bottom of my street in a 2 hour bay on Tuesday night ( I have a Parking Permit, but the street was chocker, as usual ) with every intention of moving it Wednesday morning. Problem was, the bloody car wouldn't start and by the time I had got back from my brother's to move it I had got a damn PCN. My lovely council (Barrow Borough Council) being as compassionate as they are have stated there's no grounds for cancellation. Therefore, I may appeal on road markings, but I am a little confused with the markings. I can't work out whether it is a 1028 or a 1033 bay ?
  4. Sent an informal challenge to council indicating I'd bought a ticket and that the area I was parked in looked like a legitimate area to park in and I was not causing an obstruction. I had to tell 5 other people not to park next to me as I was gathering evidence showing that the floor markings were confusing. My informal challenge was rejected saying that "every bay in this car park is marked by white lines and is numbered using large painted letters". The definition of a parking bay on the Collins online dictionary is "a space in a car park designed to be large enough to park a vehicle in". The space I was parked in was certainly large enough to put 3 small cars, and the floor markings made me think (and many others) that this was a designated space. There were no signs to say otherwise. Residential "bays" on roads are long and thin and not necessarily spaced individually for cars. Do you think I should take this further with an official challenge arguing this point / the lack of signs / or the slightly damaged sign indicating that this is a penalty in the first place? Any help fighting this will be much appreciated. I've never fought these bullies before trying to kick my rice bowl away.
  5. Just out of curiousity, a local Gatso 's road markings (the hash marks after the camera are virtually non existant, I am not going to run the camera as it may well be switched off but does the lack of markings invalidate any record if one was over the flash point?
  6. My friend got a PCN while delivering parcels in Exeter High Street where loading is not allowed between 10am and 6pm (ie. the only times when some shops are open which is a bit daft). It all looks legitimate (checked the TRO and dates on the ticket) except for one point. There are no yellow markings on the pavements. Are yellow markings on the pavements an essential requirement for loading restrictions? The contravention is "Parked or loading/unloading in a restricted street where waiting and loading/unloading restrictions are in force (02)"
  7. Hi, I parked in a road side, marked out parking bay up a side street and (over) paid for a ticket which was displayed in the windscreen. Upon returning to my vehicle I had a parking ticket (PCN), which to my suprise was for being parked in a disabled spot. I at that point noticed a small sign, high up on a post which is not in line with my space, rather more in line with the white line between my space and the one next to me (which isn't disabled). The white lines separating the spaces are old white paint which is broken and needs re-painting, and after scraping away the leaves it became apparent that there is also a very old word "disabled" painted in the entry to my space, which is again all broken old paint which needs re-painting. There was no big disabled logo in the space, and what paint there was on the road marking the spaces out is all old & broken and was covered with dead leaves. Where can I find the regulations covering how a disabled space should be marked out? I've looked in the highway code, but its not clear. I feel the ticket was unfairly issued, as I am a reasonably attentive person and I was genuinely suprised to find out that it was a disabled bay - surely it should be made clearer... Hope you can help.
