    Britannia jobs worth 16th Aug 17 at 5:10 PM
    Hi
    The driver works in the community with the elderly mental health and took a client wheelchair user but no blue badge into town . Parked in a convenient place for the wheelchair looked around and saw a pay station read it and paid 50p .
    When they returned they had a parking ticket stating that they had failed to display a valid p&d ticket . It turns out that the ticket that they bought was for the disabled section but there was nothing on the machine stating this when they went back to check there was a sign about 7 foot in the air but it is not clear and to be honest it would have thought that it would be better to put it on the machine .
    They spoke to the attendant who was very off had and just said appeal it then. The driver was fuming as thry had bought a ticket just not the correct one

    Do they need to pay this

    Thank you

    It is essential reading and tells you how to appeal and when using the BPA template in blue. Do NOT reveal the driver's identity. Just cut and paste and send the appeal exactly as it is.

    Was this a council ticket ? or from a private company

    The problem with parking attendants is that they grew up
    wanting to be a police officer, they failed the test and ended
    up being a parking drongo. Feel sorry for them, it takes a lot
    to become a drongo

    Throughout here you are advised never to reveal who was driving.

    Edit do so that the driver isn't identified. Use the third party as in the driver parked in a wheelchair accessible spot/:the driver found a ticket etc

    Normally, this kind of question suggests the OP will struggle to even find, let alone understand the information about the issues surrounding their problem. But good on you.

    We'll help you to get this sorted. Britannia are no big problem. You can beat them at POPLA - but keep your powder dry for POPLA.
    We cannot provide you with a silver bullet to get you out of this. You have to be in for the long run, and need to involve yourself in research and work for you to get rid of this. It is not simple. We will help, but can't do it for you.

    There you go. I never had any doubt that you, more than most newbies, would have a successful outcome.

    Well done!
