    Council parking ticket - disabled bay

    Council parking ticket - disabled bay 12th Oct 17 at 9:11 AM
    Wife was out with her mother who has a blue badge. Parked in disabled bay.

    For whatever reason, they had blue badge with them but didn't display it properly - and got ticket.

    I send letter to council with proof of badge etc but they disallowed the appeal. Appreciate the letter of the law says you MUST display the badge properly, and appreciate they need to be strict but this seems a bit tough.

    Wouldn't normally council be a bit more lenient in cases like this?

    Is it worth making a formal appeal? (it would be 70 not 35 then I guess).
    Cymru am Byth !!!

    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se
