hi,

 

i found this parking space in my town center and i have been parking here for around 2 years and never got a ticket. i thought that because all the road markings were rubbed off i couldnt get a ticket.

 

today however, i got a ticket! gutted!

 

the ticket said "Parked without clearly displaying a valid pay & display ticket or voucher"

 

Here are the pictures:

seel st , liverpool, i know it well

 

nope, their are plenty of road signs up and down seel st saying pay and display, i suspect the markings your on about are the small white bay marks, they look like they have been eroded for want of a better word by roadworks replacing the tarmac

if you got a ticket for not parking in the marked bay or simelar, i would say you have an argument but as seen as you have parked their for free for 2 years i would say u have been just lucky

I'm starting to wonder if the parking bays are incorrectly marked anyway, which if they are would mean no offense occurred.

From what I understand if a parking bay starts and ends with a double transverse line then it must have single transverse lines markings for individual bays, but for a continuous bay (without transverse lines marking out the bays) it should start and end with a single transverse line not double.

If I am right, then by parking in a continuous bay that starts and ends with double transverse lines is an invalid parking bay, meaning parking can not be enforced in incorrectly marked areas?

Is it in a CPZ? I suspect it is. I would appeal on the grounds that the bay markings are faded/poorly maintained but I don't hold out much hope TBH.

i have been up and down the road and their are no CPZ signs.

 

The signs will be at the start of the CPZ which won't necessarily be at the end of the street you have parked in.

The Inner Zone covers dozens of streets, but the CPZ signs are only positioned at the entry points to the Zone and not on every street within the zone
