Parking ticket...

Post  fr3tless on Tue Oct 01 2013, 09:54

Hi guys! I was parked up in Leicester last week for about 5 days and a couple of nights altogether, in the same place. It wasn't until Saturday that I got a parking ticket, which, as you can imagine annoyed me... a lot.
I just wondered your opinion on it, as I'm not sure whether to appeal or not? I've added a picture of where my bike was parked. Oh, there are double yellow lines on the road, but I'm not exactly obstructing anything?

Might be hard to appeal. If that was in London it would have been a no quibble fine as it is illegal to park on the pavement, I don't know the circumstances in Leicester.
Another pedantic point is your bike is overhanging the yellow line, my understanding is no part of a vehicle can cross the line not only the tyre.

Roadside parking restrictions include the pavement. You might get some help over at Pepipoo and if you're up for a fight then try and find if the appropriate traffic regulation orders are in place with dotted i and crossed t, that the road markings meet the letter of the law and so on.

Only parking ticket I've had was in Leicester sad  was outside my daughter's Uni house, tried to appeal but failed so £35 poorer.

BTW Leicester parking prices are a lot cheaper than around here.

Appeal anyway , if you win , no costs , if you loose is the same price but you get longer to pay as it's suspended until appeal has been decided
