On the Bank of Holiday Sunday at the end of may, i parked my car on a single yellow line at a CPZ thinking its sunday, single yellows do not apply on them. When i came back to my car, it had a ticket on it.

 

I was pretty sure i was right in this case, so i did some investigating. I reside in Ealing so the first thing i did was go on the Ealing website and the first thing i find is,

 

"Do CPZs apply on bank holidays?

No. On UK bank holidays you may park freely within a parking bay in any Ealing CPZ without displaying a visitor voucher or parking permit."

 

The link is

Frequently asked questions

 

Anyway, i sent a them a letter saying it was a CPZ and that it stated on your website that CPZ do not apply on a Bank Holiday.

 

They wrote me a reply saying because i was not parked in a bay, the penalty still applies to ensure and i quote " the free flow of traffic and ensure the council meets its road and safety obligations "

 

What a loads of....!

 

The situation now, they have given me 14 days to pay till 10th August. blah blah and the usual crap until i receive Notice to Owner (NTO).

 

I do not know what to do. I really feel like appealing saying i was yards away from the parking bay, what does it matter. From what iam aware, the CPZ also applies to the single yellow so if the parking bays are being are not monitored, why is the single yellow! Grrrr. What a waste!

 

HELP ME ANYONE! SHALL I APPEAL OF PAY THE FINE BEFORE IT GETS ANYMORE?

 

Any suggestions, much appriciated.

 

Thank you.

a) Its a myth yellow lines do not apply on a Sunday, it's possible for them to apply Sundays only if required.

 

b) A Bank Holiday is a Monday not a Sunday

 

c) You did not park in a bay so the Council are correct the website does advise you parking on yellow lines is not permitted.

 

"Do CPZs apply on bank holidays?

No. On UK bank holidays you may park freely within a parking bay in any Ealing CPZ without displaying a visitor voucher or parking permit."

 

 

The only suggestion is to check the traffic order to ensure that the yellow lines do apply on Bank Holidays.

Unfortunately, you would be hard pressed to challenge this using the evidence presented on the Ealing website as this states quite clearly that this guidance applies to controlled bay parking (e.g. resident permit parking) only.

 

Parking on any yellow lines where the controlled period indicates a Monday will also include Bank Holiday Monday (even though this may seem illogical since Bank holiday "traffic" is no-where near the levels of a regular Monday morning).

 

I had to learn this lesson the hard way myself so I feel your pain!

 

I would pay before the fine goes up and move on I'm afraid.
