Fecking Parking Attendent

Hey all, I just got a parking fine for something that I never even done. Apparently I was parked on a white line and to close to a BMW

I confronted the attendent and he said tuff, I could of got you for parking to close blah blah blah but I didn't.

And the price for this thing that I did not do.....

Re: Fecking Parking Attendent

Yea I took some piccies, apparently he did as well BUT he wouldn't show them to me. He accused me of moving my car in the 3 minute difference from the fine to the piccies.

I'll have my solictor draft up a letter and send it to them.

I have had similar problems with same attendent tho, we don't get along when I knew his son you see.

Good luck with it, sounds like that attendant has problems!

If the pics show your innocent, then you shouldn't have a problem

He probably gets more money the more car he nabs.
Appeal against it, you will probably win. Then one day, you see him off duty, have a word with him.

Re: Fecking Parking Attendent

Yes but WERE you "Parked beyond the bay markings"

Did you take a 'photo which clearly shows all of your car was within one bay?

Which bit of your car was allegedly over said marks?

Re: Fecking Parking Attendent

Apologies being dense,
was your car allegedly parked over the bay lines infront/behind (as though parked on the street next to the kerb) or the bay lines to the side (as though parked in a Car Park)?
t sounds like a tough deal, I see from the PCN that the attendant 'has reason to believe' about the offence. That doesn't sound clear cut to me. Either you have commited an offence (and where's YOUR day in Court let them prove their case), or have not. He may also believe that cars run on gravy and salmon live in trees, but that don't make it so!!

Parking attendants should restrict themselves to monitor cars parked where they shouldn't be, not paying where they should or being parked for too long. NOT for someone who has parked in a parking area and paid for the privilege!

...if wishes were fishes, we'd all cast nets...

Re: Fecking Parking Attendent

Read about this yesterday in one of the sunday rags.

These private companies have no more rights than you or me - tell them to get stuffed.

Chances are they wont do anything.

Who said you were to close - how do they know that the BM didnt park after you or that the car behind did not force you to park to close to the BM.

Re: Fecking Parking Attendent

I have just read about this idiot traffic warden who could not tell the time so he did not know if a car had exceeded its time.

Motorist fined for having a parking ticket... because the traffic warden could not tell the time | Mail Online

Re: Fecking Parking Attendent

What is your registration number?
The number on that ticket looks like ML548FO which isn't a number in fitting with the guidelines.

If they've got your registration wrong, then you're pretty much in the clear.
