So your defence is going to be that despite living in the street for some time you didn't realise it was painted with yellow lines? My advice would be to pay the penalty at the discount and don't be so foolish in future.

The test used in these circumstances nowadays is substantial compliance, which basically means that the fact that the lines are a bit worn or lacking a T-bar doesn't make them unenforceable unless they're so bad that they might actually mislead you about the parking restriction. They don't look that worn to me from your photo, and in any event you'd have a hard time arguing that having walked past it every day for (however long) you didn't realise that it was a double yellow line. Maybe if it was a strange street and you genuinely hadn't seen it you'd have half a chance, though to be honest I suspect you'd have an uphill struggle even then.

my defence is that they look like double yellow lines and the council said Although the lines are not perfect it was given correctly so how can things not be perfect to the council but its perfect for me to pay double standards i think

As part of Lancashire County Council, we enforce on-street parking restrictions to improve road safety for all road users, to improve the flow of traffic and to ensure emergency vehicles and public transport are able to travel without obstruction or delay. i live cul de sac no traffic passing through

Residential areas: to reduce the impact of commuter parking in controlled parking zones, improving safety, vehicle noise and lower exhaust emissions making a better environment for local residentslso they say im local cant get a permit for the other streets as i dont live on them

If they've put a parking restriction in for no good reason, or if they've only given you 8 spaces on the street for 12 cars that sucks and you can complain to your councillor about it (not that they'll probably do much), but unfortunately it doesn't give you licence to park on double yellow lines.

I would suspect that as its a cul de sac allowing cars to park anywhere would restrict drivers from turning around.

i keep hearing about de minimis i understand that but what about regulation the government regulated the DYL and the de minimis can just change that so have we gone to self regulation for parking tickets
