    Hi
    I hope somebody can help with this. We've just got a parking ticket from Hillingdon Council for being "parked in a special enforcement area adjacent to a dropped footway".

    I had parked slightly in front of a dropped slope on the pavement (the one's with the bumps on them). There no signs, lines, or any other indication of parking restrictions, just a normal suburban road.

    We would like to appeal. Does anybody have any suggestions for the grounds for appeal.
    Many Thanks
    Loch

    They don't need to sign a dropped kerb you are supposed to know not to park in front of one.
    Those bumps are to let partially sighted or blind people that this is a place to cross the road as I understand it.

    If you want further advice on this "real ticket" register on Pepipoo.

    Yep, post here with a picture of the PCN and showing whether you were just overhanging slightly (which can be OK, argued as minimal) or actually with a wheel blocking a driveway or crossover.

    HTH - do not use a hotmail email to register on pepipoo, you cannot post if you try that. DO show BOTH SIDES of your PCN.

    I tried to register to the website above but it's asking me questions
    Mortaway speed limit plus non emergency police number
    I have put 70101 and 60101 but none of them doesn't seem to work. So I can't go ahead on the website.
    If you can please send me your email address or something else I can send you the pictures.

    Can't do that - Try registering again as you will get different questions. Maybe it needs a gap between 70 and 101? Pepipoo is the expert forum.

    You need to add the values together rather than combine them.
