    PCN for parked with one or more wheels on or over a footpath or any part of a road...

    PCN for parked with one or more wheels on or over a footpath or any part of a road... 22nd Sep 16 at 10:35 AM
    Hi all,

    Received this PCN last night whilst I was out. I park here regularly, and have never received a ticket for parking here.


    Ticket was issued by Transport for London.

    The ticket states the contravention as being "parked with one or more wheels on or over a footpath or any part of a road other than a carriageway."

    The stretch of road in question is an extended access road to local businesses. This particular access road is for a business that has long since closed. Thus it's not used.

    Parking here does not hinder the footpath for pedestrians (they have a clear footpath route behind these vehicles at least 10foot wide).


    By being parked here I'm not parked on the pavement, nor the kerb, and I'm not causing any obstruction to vehicles nor pedestrians.

    Gathering opinion here on you think I have grounds to appeal this. Incidentally, all the other cars parked around me that also regularly use this space we all also ticketed.


    So, is this a rogue warden ? oppotunitistic ticketing ? abuse of power ? or indeed a valid ticket and we are all guilty ?

    Interested to hear your opinions on this. Seems like a money making racket to me at £130 a go.

    Here's the images I took before I moved off:-


    I can't post images as I restricted from doing so as I am a new user. Damn.

    anyhow, here they are - see this link :-

    Appreciate any viewpoints on this one.


    Regards,


    Terry.

    You've omitted the most important info ... WHO issued the PCN? Is this from a private company or a council warden?

    Parking on the pavement is not normally a penalty offence (council), except in London. (I note the double red lines indicating a possible red route).

    PS - when you were masking your reg number you should have done likewise for the other vehicles.

    All pretty irrelevant I think, and it would appear you have a "real ticket" if so the red lines (which are more restrictive than yellow ones) extend to the boundry of the property.

    But the regulars will need to know who issued it to give advice.

    Hi There,


    The Parking Ticket (PCN) was issued by TFL - Transport for London.


    Never seen one of these before - I assume they have overall responsibility for London Red Routes...

    Sign up to pepipoo.com as this is a council/tfl one. As its a red route ticket its worth getting their expert view.
    Millies due back at Christmas.

    That's the specific forum you need, I think.
