Got a parking fine in Islington, mistakenly parked in a residents bay with a pay and display ticket and was wondering if someone could have a look at it and see if anything is wrong. Unfortunately I dont have a scanner or camera to show the ticket but I can type it out word for word.

I still have the pay and display ticket that the warden saw me buy, put in my car then just waited for me to go into the doctors and gave me a ticket. God forbid he could have said that it was'nt valid in that particular bay.

if you look up the top of this forums homepage there is a very good sticky section that details all the info you prob need


good luck



please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

That sticky is aimed at issues with private parking, not PCN's issued by a local authority. I would take a look at the parking section in PePiPoo: Helping the motorist to get justice and post there. There are some knowlegable people there who will be able to tell you if the PCN is compliant with the legislation and thus a legal PCN.

'The problem is' that if the ticket is invalid, the fine is also invalid. We have to abide by the rules; equally, Councils and Police have rules by which they have to abide in order to follow up on these offences/contraventions. If the wording is incorrect, then the ticket is invalid.


The OP's question is a perfectly reasonable one.


Click the scales if I've been useful! :)
