I went to see my dr last week parked my car in a parking bay & paid the required parking fee. When I returned to my car to my astonishment I'd received a ticked . When I read the reason it said that my car was not fully parked in the bay. When I looked at my car the front wheel was about 3 inches past the the bay the remainder of the car was in the bay.


Can I defend the ticket? Thanks

OK. In that case, there is no definite way to get this cancelled. If, as you say, the car was indeed over the end of the bay, then it would be a discretionary cancellation on the part of the council. They will need to weigh up the extent to which you were overhanging the bay, and what they think is reasonable. Obviously I've not seen photos, but your description of three inches doesn't sound like much. Your best bet is probably a courteous letter saying you were only marginally over the line and that you hadn't realised until you saw the PCN. They might go for that and cancel it.

Now! You are currently in the window where the reduced rate applies. If you wait, this will lapse, and their next "letter" will be an official notice requesting the full amount. So appeal now, and you will reserve the discount, should the appeal fail.


It may or may not go your way, it's hard to say. All I can advise is that the letter is polite and to the point. Hopefully they will accept it, but as I say, they don't have to if the car truly was over the line.
