Been offered reduced fine of £80. For overstay in carpark, paid £1. for an hour, should i pay.
hello everyone, my brother went for shopping this morning on my car and park in local shopping car park which is provided by local authority with 30 mins free parking. There are pay and displays machines, so everyone who want to park there for 30 mints or less, can press the button and machine will issue a ticket for 30 mins free parking. my brother dont bother to press the button to get the free parking ticket so he got a PCN. my question , is there any chance to get rid of this PCN by saying that the car park is free for 30 Mints, he only went to shop for three mints and he got ticket? or is displaying a ticket compulsory? when you enter the car park it shown (pay and display), on PCN the code is (06 Parked without clearly displaying valid pay and display ticket or voucher) observed from 10:37AM to 10:40AM. any help welcome.
My mother is disabled has a registered and taxed as disabled car. Mother can only walk with two crutches and very slowly. Visited my sister who lives in a residents permit only parking area. Sister has scratch off tickets for visitors which she gives to her family etc. on arrival, scratches off the relevant day and time etc. Mother arrives from a hospital appointment, there is a parking space (permit only) outside sisters house, rather than park the car on a single yellow line, possibly lose the permit only space and have to move car from yellow line to permit only (and walking further) after getting scratch card from sister. She parks in permit only space correctly displays Blue badge, makes her way to sisters house to get scratch off card, sister not at home, so she lets herself in, finds scratch card and returns to the car a few minutes later to find car ticketed. On the ticket it says Observed from 2.39 to 2.44 (issued by CEO) and Says Time of contravention 2.44 The question? I thought we were allowed 15 minutes to get change/walk to buy/get a ticket/to machine before you could get ticketed. There is no way mother could have got from her car to my sisters house (two lots of stairs on crutches) and back with the scratch card within 4 minutes. Is this fair/correct or can I appeal it for her? Help much apprecitated NN
