Hello all

 

I am new to these forums and would appreciate some advice re a parking ticket I received.

 

I received a PCN for dispalying a ticket not valid for the car park, as it was only valid for street parking. I bought the ticket in good faith in the firm belief that the machine was for use on the car park and I have attached a photo which shows my vehicle in relation to the machine where I purcheased the ticket.

 

The irony is - I actually paid more for my ticket than had I bought the correct one!!

 

It wasn't until I looked at the machine that I noiced a sign above saying that it was only valid for street parking.

 

A number of questions:

 

1. Is it worth appealing on the grounds of an innocent mistake?

2 Is the ticket legal- - the ticket states that I was' Parked in a car park without clearly diplaying a valid ticket', yet the warden had hand written on the PCN bag ' Ticket not valid for car park, only street parking'

 

3. Whether the sign stating 'street parking only' is lawful- i.e. it was not a eye level and in white- should it have been yellow?

 

Any help would be appreciated

 

Thanks

Who issued the PCN, Council or Car parking operator?

Can we see the front of the on street machine?

 

Any signage in the car park directing you to the right machine? Where is the right machine located?

 

CEO's notes on the bag are probably just to make the reason clear to you. It's the contravention on the PCN that counts.

I would make an appeal and state that the whilst you make a silly mistake you did pay for parking and in fact overpaid, did not park in a prohibited area or overstay the maximum stay so the Council should use its discretion and cancel the PCN.

Hi

 

I will have to take a photo of the front of the machine and post later.

The other machines are dotted around the car park but there are no directions on the street machine and the sign which states that it is only intended for use on the street is above the machine and a simple white sign- surely this should be in yellow or something and be more visible?

 

I wouldn't mind, but it is not as if I was evading the cost or attemting to deceive anyone.

 

Cheers
