    Can someone help me? UNFAIR PARKING TICKET WITH NO VEHICLE PRESENT. 10th Oct 16 at 6:33 PM
    Hi All,

    I'm fuming, I've just came home from work and my mum is having building refurbishment carried out by builders at her other address local to where we live.

    A local builders merchant had delivered our block slabs directly outside the home on the road for us to unload the slabs and take them inside. We have no driveway access and no drop curb directly outside our home. Hence why the delivery driver had placed them next to the raised foot path on the road for us to unload.

    A ticket warden decided to slap a parking ticket on the slabs???

    There is no single yellow, no double yellow, no red markings, no pay and display bays...nothing.

    Is this fair? slabs was only placed there for unloading and to unpack the goods to be moved immediately.

    im guessing this warden has had a good day in commission!

    Is there a legislation, or a something that can defend our case if we appeal?

    appreciate any help

    I'm sorry, they did WHAAAAAT?! LOLOLOLOL!!!

    You must tell pepipoo forum about this one:

    Hahahahaha, this is funny!

    Is this fair?
    Nope, nor can slabs be in contravention of a traffic order. What VRN is on the penalty charge, the reg of the lorry? If so then THIS IS NOT YOURS TO CONTEST. IT IS FOR THE SLAB DELIVERY FIRM (LORRY OWNERS) TO CONTEST - AND THEY CAN.

    Just a thought - are you SURE the CEO put the PCN there or did he/she serve it into the hands of the builder who got annoyed and plonked it on the slabs? A CEO can serve a PCN onto a windscreen or into the hands of the driver.

    What contravention code did they use? It would be interesting to know what kind of offence (which is within their remit) they thought the paving slabs were committing. Since there's no VRN, there can be no tying it to any individual.

    There's probably some Road Traffic law which prevents you dumping random objects which are not vehicles on the highway, but that's probably something for the police to enforce.

    This has got to have been issued to the lorry that delivered the load, I wonder if the wardens Hand Held Terminal would even issue a ticket with no VRN entered.

    My guess its a warden with a sense of humour (I'm sure they do). One to boast about in the staff canteen.
    Millies due back at Christmas.

    Is there an actual completed ticket, or just the yellow packet?

    Remember that it is not yours to appeal unless it has your car reg on it. This has nothing to do with the house it was found at if issued to the delivery driver.

    As we've said, we think this was issued to the lorry so needs to be posted or handed to that delivery firm; it is their issue to appeal, if it has their lorry's VRN on it. You could help them out by providing the delivery firm with a signed & dated 'witness statement' if you saw the CEO slap it on the slabs and NOT serve the PCN to the lorry or driver. They would win an appeal on that basis.
