Hi all,


Strange one.


On the entry to my estate, there are signs in place advising that the roads are resident permit only on match days.


When it is NOT a match day, these signs are locked up and made invisible.


I am a resident but do not have a permit (never got round to it), and I usually park on my driveway anyways.


On the 30th I parked on the street. On the 31st, I woke up to find a PCN on my car for non display of a permit. The 31st was a match day.


My question is - when I parked the car, on the 30th, there were no signs visible pertaining to the restrictions. I do not usually know even when a match day is, and certainly didnt know it was on the 31st (its a rugby ground nearby not football, so its not the huge influx of people you see going to a football match).


Is the ticket enforceable?


Thanks in advance!

I would say that if there were no signs visable stating (or relating to) that its resident parking only on match days when you parked, then no.

Please Note
