Hi everybody,

 

I received a parking fine whilst parked in a council multi-story car park.

The details - I was with my partner and our newborn child along with our disabled daughter. So we parked on the ground floor and displayed (clearly) our blue disability parking badge.

Long story short we came back and saw the ticket, then when i investigated, the only place it says that blue badge is not valid is on an actual sign net to the ticket booth (which is not near the entrance/exit) and nowhere else (i took pictures on my phone)

 

do i have any grounds or is it a case of pay up?

 

I now have the fine increased to £75 as i lost the original ticket and all correspondance went to my mums house as that is where my car is registered to

 

thanks in advance

Blue badges can't be used for off street parking unless there are signs specifically allowing the use.

The Blue Badge scheme is generally for on-street parking.

 

The BB scheme does not necessarily apply to off-street car parks (such as supermarket,hospital or local authority car parks) and it is up to the car park owner to decide whether badge holders can park free of charge. Some do, some don't.

 

Do not assume you can always park for free.

I assume you have just recieved the Charge Certificate, (original £50 + 50% =£75). If so, the right to appeal is long gone. If you fail to pay they will issue an Order for Recovery followed by bailiffs clamping your vehicle

Given the apparent circumstances that the OP has reached the Charge Certificate stage and by ignoreing correspondence which went to the addresss the vehicle was registered to, has foregone any appeal opportunities, I think that's good advice.

 

Posting a copy of the ticket would be of no help

This is shame. It sounds as though it was quite winnable if the statutory process had been followed. An expensive lesson I fear.
