On 11/05/2018 at 12:36 I was amazed to spot a gap in the red and yellow lines on the hospital perimeter road close to the Willow Annexe which I was visiting for pre surgery assessment. Since I have very troublesome arthritic knees and ankles only having a 200 yd walk was like a gift from the gods. The gap in the lines was twice the size my car would need and I assumed that whoever had been parked there must have just moved. I parked up and went off to my appointment. When I came back, to my astonishment there was a ticket on the windscreen. I took some photos to prove I was not on red or yellow lines, got in the car, opened the plastic envelope and found that the accusation was, in fact, "Causing Obstruction". he perimeter road in that area is wide enough for two buses at least to pass each other, I wasn't obstructing the road, and I certainly wasn't obstructing the footpath. Any advice as to whether they can make this stick would be appreciated. I have not yet contacted Liberty Printers who issued the Parking Charge, which says £80 or £40 if paid within 14 days.
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
