Hello guys, I was wondering if you can help me. We live in parking permit zone and i have just bought a car, went to the post office and got it taxed(disabled) and the post office sent the logbook under my name as the car is now taxed as disabled. My wife and son are both disabled.

 

My wife has got a blue badge where as my son is autistic. He is 8 years old and dont wanna sit in the back seat and the problem is that as soon as the car is parked he wants to open the driver door and run out so i have to be really quick to stop him running so as soon as i park the car i run out of driver side to get hold of my son. Now last week we came home from shopping and i parked the car outside my house.

 

My son as usual was trying to run out and as i was worried i ran out to get hold of him and in all that i forgot to to display the blue badge on my car. As we are waiting for the logbook to come from dvla i cannot apply for the parking permit. The next day i had to go out and found that there was a PCN (Penalty Charge Notice) on the car.

 

Contravention Code : 12

Contravention : PARKED IN A RESIDENTS' OR SHARED USE PARKING PLACE OR ZONE WITHOUT EITHER CLEARLY DISPLAYING A VALID PERMIT OR VOUCHER OR PAY AND DISPLAY TICKET ISSUED FOR THAT PLACE. OR WITHOUT PAYMENT OF THE PARKING CHARGE.

 

As the car is taxed as disabled, i was wondering if we can appeal the pcn. I know that the blue badge should be displayed but as i got autistic child i was wondering if i can appeal. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

If you are within the discount period, then by all means appeal. However, technically i'm not sure you will succeed. It also may be the case that the resident permit zone will not have an exemption for disabled badge holders. My street is one such street that has "No exemption" for disabled badge holders.

You can appeal as you are legally entitled to but as you pointed out a) you didn't display a permit b) you didn't display a blue badge so the contravention did actually occur. The Council can use some discretion and accept mitigation and cancel on those grounds but the adjudicator cannot and will only decide if the contravention occurred or not or if there was a procedural failure. I'd write a nice grovelling letter within 14 days but if they don't accept pay the discount and use it as an expensive lesson to avoid doing it again.
