Parking ticket not affixed to vehicle...

Recommended Posts

Hello...

 

Help needed, please!! I was illegally parked for a few minutes whilst I went into the chemist for a prescription.. (there are no car parks or anywhere else to park where I live, so I took a chance).

 

I came outside and saw a parking attendant about to give me a ticket... when he saw me approaching, he walked away, but didn't attach the ticket...

 

Will I be liable if the ticket isn't affixed to the car?

 

Thanks for any advice... TB

If the CEO cannot attach the ticket or hand it to the person they believe to be the driver then it can be deemed issued at the time and the copy sent through the post. The council will claim that this applies where the CEO belives that they may come to physical harm if they stay where they are and that the violation was properly observed and they can ticket through the post. They dont have to prove that you were threatening, just that the CEO held a belief that you might be.

There again the CEO might have just seen you return to the vehicle and stopped issuing the ticket as they thought it not worth the grief of standing there and trying to explain themselves..

They can issue by post if they were prevented from serving it because the vehicle was driven away.

 

I wouldn't blame a CEO from walking away rather than risking a confrontation - as to whether he intended to carry through the PCN or just gave up and walked away - time will tell. You may or may not get one through the post. I guess where you were parked will be a factor - double yellows?

Hahaha!!! I am a tiny 5ft lady…I didn't threaten him… I apologised and he told me it was "No parking at any time", then he started to wander away as I went to get in the car and I saw him take a photo of a car parked in front of me… no attempt at all was made to give me the ticket… I hope it won't come through the post, but then again, maybe he was waiting for the ticket to print out… there were no yellow lines, it's a bus stop… mind you, there are only about two buses a day out here in the sticks!! Thanks for the replies. TB

They usually take the picture after fixing the ticket I've noticed. He could have just been ticketing the car in front and didn't get to you yet.

no dounbt he will put something in his noterbook so he can explain what he has done that day. The idea about slapping PCN's on vehicles is to get you to change your habits not collect money (no- dont laugh) so it had the desired effet, he tells his boss that his work had this deterent effect and can show piccys to prove it and everyone is happy.

He was definitely looking at the front of my car... as though he was punching in the reg… then he saw me approaching and wandered off and took a photo of the other car…

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
       
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
