Hi,

 

I just received in the post a PCN for stopping in a bay off the road for less than 2 minutes.

 

The video clip of the incident has been sent to me and it would be wonderful if someone could look at this and tell me if there are any grounds for contesting the penalty.

 

I've stopped on a commercial driveway leading to the back of the buildings and a car comes out of that driveway whilst I was there yet I'm being accused of parking on a pavement.

 

I would really appreciate a second opinion on this although I dont know how I could show you the video!

 

Thanks in advance.

Thanks postmn, no it came through from Brent Council.

 

The charge is for £130 less the 50% discount for payment within 21 days.

 

I've just noticed there is a sentence with a gap in it.

 

Can this invalidate the PCN?

It says:

 

"The alleged contravention was noted by an enforcement officer from [gap] who was observing real time pictures from an approved device at the stated time."

 

or am I clutching at straws?

just because a car cameout and got passed you

still doesn't mean parking on pavements is OK though

 

i think that might be your downfall here.

Dx I'm not sure that it is a pavement. I entered a bay.

 

In the photo it shows at such an angle that it looks like I'm on the pavement but I dont think I am.

 

Not sure what to do!

 

Is there a rule about what is considered to be parking as opposed to just pausing

- I was there for less than 2 minutes.

Were you on the public carriageway or parked entirely within a private road/drive?

 

There is a big difference as the latter has bugger all to do with the council, whether you were obstructing or not.

 

Get a photo of the place and appeal.

 

You dont have to send the photo to the council, just tell them where you were and that the ticket was incorrectly issued as no parking offence took place.

Hi Thank you for your response.

 

I have been sent the video recording and it doesnt look good, although it could be borderline.

 

I've stopped across the front of the road leading to the back of the building but there is double yellow where I've stopped.

 

Could I be cheeky and ask you to have a look at the film to see if there is any hope?

 

If so please can you send me your email address via pm?

 

Thanks

No, there is no post code.

 

Just 2 photos with "HarrowRd/Neeld Crs" written across the top of the photos.

 

I will try google maps.

 

I know I sound like I'm whinging but £65 is a lot to pay as I'm unemployed!
