Hi

My son has received a PCN notice from Harrow Council 5 days after buying his first car.

Looking at the google street view image of the location the junction layout is very cluttered and I can image that a lot of people get caught out.

 

he was looking for a car park.

He turned right off Greenhill Way into Havelock Place.

Straight ahead the road narrows to a single lane into what looks like a pedestrian area between shops.

To the right is a very short service road that is clearly a dead end.

He opted to turn left into what looks like another service road (just over one car length from the main road) and did not notice the no entry signs.

 

'No entry' is not displayed on the road.

There is no 'no left turn sign' either as the distance between the main road and the junction is too short.

 

He pulled into one of the parking bays in the service road.

Consulted a map and then retraced his route back to the main road.

 

I realise that he should have noticed the no entry signs.

But personally I think I might have missed them too as you only have a couple of seconds to take in everything around you before you're at the junction.

 

Is it worth him appealing the ticket for what is a genuine mistake in a confusing situation.

Thanks

Sadly I think an adjudicator would say that teh no entry was clearly and sufficiently signed.

 

Everything else you say is merely mitigaton and adjudicators generally cannot take mitigation into account.

 

Ironically either of the other two options would not have resulted in a pcn.

 

Discount looks the best coiurse.
