Any advice on this situation would be greatly appreciated.


I went to the bank last week to collect a large sum in cash. The parking bays outside were occupied by market traders so I parked on a double yellow, and nipped in.


Waiting my return in the 5 minutes I was gone was a PCN. I am wondering if this can be challenged on the basis that I "loading" just like the security vans that pick up cash do each day?

Agree - loading won't hold up. I once saw a case where a man had stopped to use a public toilet and appealed on the basis that he was unloading... :D


The best thing to do in my view would be to write an informal appeal before the 14 days lapse. Explain clearly and politely the predicament, the fact that cash was involved, security, crime, safety etc etc and hope that they appreciate the situation. Also if poss, include some kind of documentary evidence of what you were doing (receipt, copy of cheque stub, mini-statement, that sort of thing).


You've got a reasonable chance on that basis.
