Three traffic wardens became CEOs and objected to being told "to issue tickets when there were defective or ambiguous signs or lines they said were not compliant with traffic regulation orders."


They resigned and claimed constructive dismissal. The tribunal ruled that they were not entitled to give an opinion about whether the council were entitled to enforce non-compliant bays, and the claim failed.




While I'm sure there is a lot of questions about this story, my local PCSO is a former traffic warden who was of the view that our (mostly pointless) residents' parking zone is not adequately marked yet they have recently started enforcement. So there is a ring of truth to the CEOs tale.

There are situations where there may be approval by the DofT, the signs may have been given the green light as sufficient by the adjudicator or even still be legal as installed before the current regs. CEOs are meant to check signs are in situ and adequate to enforce not refuse to do their job because THEY decide they dont think the markings are legal. Its strange they had no issue enforcing whilst working for the police no doubt being investigated for gross misconduct had something to do with their claim.
