My dog was attacked by another dog and my son and I rushed our dog to the Vet. Sadly, he died.

 

I parked in a side road. Whilst our Dog was with the Vet I kept an eye open for a Traffic Warden. I saw a van arrive which seemed private and went out to my car. It had been clamped!. I had been in the Vet for about 3 mins. The warden would have given me the ticket and then clamped me within no more than 2/3 minutes.

 

This is the ticket.

There is a sign that says No Parking Monday to Saturday 8.30 am to 6.30pm

 

I have a photo of the single yellow line but its on my mobile.

 

I do not think the single yellow line is compliant.

 

My car was parked about 20 yards from the main road. In front of my car there is a solid yellow line with a TBar. After that Parking is allowed

 

Behind my car there is about 5 yards of very faint yellow paint with very faint white paint in front....Then there is about 8 yards of either no yellow line or some strange yellow markings in the road. These go from the pavement out (strange). After that its Double Yellow Lines for the last few yards of the road. There is no TBar on the other side of the Single Yellow Line.

 

 

What should I do?

 

I had to pay the clampers about £200.00.

I am confused.. How come you had to pay £200 when the pcn stated it was only £40 and you had 14 days to pay?

Reason I had to pay circa £200 was because they had clamped my car. I would estimate the clamping happened about 2/3 minutes after my car was ticketed.

 

The penalty charge of ?80.00 must be paid before the end of the period of 28 days begining with the date of this notice. If the penalty charge is paid before th end of the period of 14 days begining with the date of this notice, the amount of the penalty charge will be reduced by 50% to ?40.00.

 

There may be something different in Waltham Forest but I don't think you can be clamped for a parking contravention if the above statement is correct. you have 14 days to pay £40 and 28 days to pay £80 why was you charged £200 and why was it clamped.

Thats an interesting theory but if correct it would mean that local authorities could not clamp a car for 28 days.

 

They clamped my car and I had no choice but to pay.

Phone the council ask them why they clamped you.

Howard can you get a copy of the PCN on here both sides lets see if there is a problem with the PCN, I find it's better with a camera pic a steady hand is needed then host it on ImageShack® - Hosting choose No1 image for forums.

Were there any signs to say you could be clamped and the amount, if there are not then they cannot do it, legally anyway.

Hang on a minute is this a private car park or council, as you state that the PCN says... "To the registered keeper of

Vehicle Reg No:" I have never seen that wording on a PCN

Update on this.

 

Waltham Forest accepted my informal appeal and refunded PCN and clamping fee.

 

Following this I wanted damages and requested £115.00

 

After 2 letters they refused to pay and I issued a county court summons for £115 + £30 court fee.

 

They paid me £145 within 2 weeks.
