was caught recently whilst loading my car my ticket was valid till 4pm

closed the boot to find a parking attendant writing a ticket i complained that my watch showed 3:56pm i think he was polish because he english was virtually none existant, however i could not get in the car and drive off before he slapped it on my windscreen.

after reading the ticket it shows the time of issue as 4:02 and the fact that the car witnessed at 4:01.

 

for gods sake 1 minute!!!

 

i have wrote a letter to complain and asked for information on how the time is set on the machines used and records to show when they were checked.

 

whats the chances of getting it squashed??

Sounds rather over zealous to me! You are probably obliged to synchronise your watch with the ticket machine! Good luck... i have had more parking tickets than I would like to admit to, but never managed to get off any!

Now that's odd - I've managed to "get out of" all of mine, bar one - in the Isle of Wight - and I wasn't even bloody parked then - I had a flat tyre, so was effectively 'broken down' NOT parked - but the b'stards wouldn't listen!

My 85 year old father got ticketed this morning at 8.32am whilst parked just outside his house. He came out at 8.33 but was told that the warden couldn't do anything because the ticket had been issued.

 

I have nothing personal against wardens but I do wonder if Councils would be quite so bothered with parking enforecement if it wasn't such a money spinner.

 

I used to be a local councillor and I was on the committee that dealt with traffic management for eight years. I remember being enthusiastic about the council taking over responsibility for parking enforcement because the police were doing such a bad job of it. What I hadn't appreciated was the extent to which councils would get greedy.

 

What really annoys me is the subtle changes that have accompanied this transfer of responsibility. When I have some spare time I would like to make a Freedom of Information Act enquiry of all London local authorities asking them to confirm over a 12 month period how many changes to parking restrictions in their roads have reduced the amount of time available for parking and how many have increased it.

 

This enforcement regime encourages councils to reduce the amount of free on street parking available. It also encourages them to retain unnecessary parking restrictions.

I thought there was a rule that if the ticket had expired you were allowed 5 mins? I shall have a dig around to try and confirm it. I recall this from a TV report regarding rogue parking officers.

You also usually get 5 mins grace from the time your car is noted so If noted @ 15.59 The ticket should say first observed @ 15.59 and then time of offence 16.04

However, this is a matter for discretion by the Council concerned - there is absolutely no basis in law for it.

This was your mistake. Don't waste time even trying to talk to a PA; simply get in and drive off. The ticket must be affixed to the vehicle or handed to the driver - there is no other valid method of service.

 

If the PA physically prevents you from driving off, get witnesses or take pictures using your mobile. You can then appeal the ticket on the grounds that you were obstructed. PAs have absolutely no lawful authority to stop or direct traffic
