really?
« on: 07 February 2018, 03:50:50 PM »

Was it the warden couldn't see his permit or because he parked like a tw@t?

As he says, ""I thought it was odd because if I wasn't displaying it I would have got a parking ticket every day because I had left my car there while I was in London"

Basically it's just a Warden being a Jobsworth.

Look at the picture again and see how it is parked against the kerb!

It appears to be parked on a junction. Maybe they issued the ticket for that rather than the non-display. The person receiving the ticket probably didn't even read it :pokefun

true but if the car hadn't moved in a few days then surely he would've had a ticket on the previous days too?
but as you point out there isn't a copy of the ticket to say exactly why he got this ticket!
It ain't what you ride, it's who you ride with!!!

There's no double yellow lines etc, so unless it's causing an obstruction, it's legally parked.

I will refer you to rule 243 of the highway code. This is something you can get a parking ticket for (though most plod and wardens don't bother)

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/the-highway-code/waiting-and-parking-238-to-252

DO NOT stop or park:
- opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking space

Ok, good point. It's not something I normally worry about, being on a bike :)

So, yes, it's possible that that was what the ticket was for, but it's still an odd co-incidence that it happened on the day when the permit wasn't visible due to snow.

Well there you go. Nothing to do with parking badly. All to do with poor quality software and a over zealous enforcement
