    Got another parking ticket..3rd time unlucky maybe 14th Jun 17 at 5:03 AM
    hi all. as the title says, I have got another parking ticket. This time was at the Hospital with my wife. There was no parking spaces for me to park at the hospital and I was in a rush to park. however there was a side street behind the hospital where I noticed a few cars were parked. so I though ooh these guys must know a secret parking spot. at this point I must say that there were double red markings on the floor,(very faint but could see them). the area was very secluded, it was no ambulance way etc, just a quiet little area with a few vans parked there. so I proceeded to park there and on my return there was a ticket on my windscreen. sooo, the question is have I a leg to stand on as I was parked on double reds even though it was not in a dangerous/busy area. I have won previously with popla but this time its parked on double reds. what can I do...

    ON THE PLUS SIDE MY WIFE GAVE BIRTH TO A BABY BOY WEIGHING IN AT 7.8lbs. WHOOP WHOOP.... However in this case a PLUS and MINUS still make a MINUS ey. Damn you CPP (this is the name of the PPC btw)

    On a real highway double red lines mean absolutely don't even think of parking they are more restrictive than yellows, but if this is private land they are just pretty paint, and must be covered by signage.

    You do however seem to have a very lackadaisical approach to parking your car!

    You are now going to have to go through the process all over again, maybe start this one with a chat with PALS at the hospital.

    Oh and congratulations with the little one!

    Congratulations. Yes you have a leg to stand on. The thread titled Newbies at the top of this forum contains all the information you need to see this ticket off.

    There are a few CPPs which one is this?
