Hi

 

I was in Great Queen Street just before 11pm the other day, picking up a passenger (I am a private hire driver). I parked in a bay and went out to look for the door number (half the blinking premises in London do not display the door number). When I came back a couple of minutes later there was a parking enforcement officer putting a ticket on my windscreen. I pointed out that I was waiting for a passenger but he wasn't interested. I am pretty sure as a private hire driver I can wait in a loading bay. Also the pcn states that the vehicle was observed for 1 MINUTE! I thought they had to wait 5 or something. Any ideas? Cheers. Scan of PCN attached, plus a photo of the sign which covers the bay.

Tecnically you should not have been parked as you were not loading. However the bay is unenforceable as it is 2 bays in one at the time of your PCN its a Disabled bay as stated on the PCN and a Loading bay. There are several appeal points:

 

a) the sign is not a normal format and would need written approval from the govt.

b) the bay needs the word 'disabled' on the road or approval as above

c) wrong contravention, anyone can park in the bay without a blue badge to load so its not a 'disabled bay'.

 

The sign has been changed since the google maps image and the word 'only' added which might mean they have no authorisation for the sign at all.
