My husband picked up our 13 year old daughter from the road outside a station.

 

 

It was a Sunday evening in Jan at 17.42 and it was dark.

 

 

You are not allowed to stop inside the drive right outside the station.

 

 

According to the photos printed on the PCN he stopped between 17.42 and 17.43 for 18 seconds on zig zags.

He did not stop until she was there.

 

 

I tried to view the images online as suggested on the PCN.

 

 

The preparation of these is supposed to take 24 hours

several days later the evidence is not available.

 

 

Do we have any alternative but to pay the outrageous sum of £55 (this is the discounted amount)?

 

 

Is the inability to see the online images any sort of defence?

 

 

A shot in the dark I know but thought it was worth asking.

The amount of the charge appears to be "odd" for an official PCN issued under the road traffic act. Where was this zebra crossing? is it on the public highway or within a carpark on private land?

 

Can you tell us who has issued the PCN and under what authority have they issued it.

The PCN is from the London Borough of Ealing and states 99J as the contravention code. It is a public road but there isn't a zebra crossing there but there are some traffic lights a bit further on and there are zig zag lines. The full penalty is £110, discounted by 50% for 21 days. Time is running out! Will need to pay in next couple of days. Thought I would check the footage last week but it is still unavailable online.

It would help if we knew the location so we can check it out on street view. There are 2 types of zig zag markings, one to support a school entrance (yellow) and those that support a zebra or pelican (traffic light) pedestrian crossing (white). Both carry more or less the same restrictions which is 'no stopping'. That means what it says on the tin basically whether it is for 5 seconds or 5 minutes. As soon as a passenger door is opened, you are deemed to have stopped.

Please Note

 

The advice I offer will be based on the information given by the person needing it. All my advice is based on my experiences and knowledge gained in working in the motor and passenger transport industries in various capacities. Although my advice will always be sincere, it should be used as guidence only.

 

I would always urge to seek face to face professional advice for clarification prior to taking any action.

If the zig zags are clear in the photo and it shows the car stopped then I would pay the discount and count yourself lucky it was the Council who caught you not the Police or you would be also looking at points on the licence.

It supports a pelican crossing. Looks like we will have to cough up!

Deffo. There isn't usually a get out of jail free card on zig zags!
