  1. Hope someone can help me! I have just received a PCN from a London Borough for the following alleged contravention '26J - Parked more than 50cm from the kerband not within a designated parking place' Underneath are 2x single images apparently taken from CCTV video evidence - one is timestamped at 14:25 and one at 14:26. They appear to show my car in the middle of the road. The road was not a red route, and the nearest traffic sign is a single yellow line on the nearest kerb (which is around 5' away from my car). On the journey between East and West London, I stopped to locate myself on the map as I was unfamiliar with the route. I may have stopped in this particular location to try and read the name of the side street to work out exactly where I was. There would have been no other traffic around and the road was wide enough at this point for other cars to overtake without encroaching into the roadspace of ongoing traffic. My question is this - what constitutes 'parking'? I simply stopped to try and work out where I was. I didn't get out of the car or draw into the kerb. I was not holding up traffic. It was not a red route where stopping is prohibited. I have tried to find the legal definition of parking (ie leaving the vehicle unattended, staying stationary for x minutes etc) but to no avail. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  2. Parked in a bay that said cars and motorcycles only, got a ticket. My vehicle is a VW T4 with side windows and three seats with belts in the rear. For example when I use the Severn Bridge I pay the car toll not van or camper van. Any advice out there? Thanks peeps
