    Parking fine. Unmarked disabled bay 30th Nov 17 at 4:52 PM

    I got a council parking ticket today.

    I parked in a disabled bay. But the carpark didnít have any marked bays, let alone marked disabled bays.

    The only indication was signs well above head height that I didnít notice until after Iíd gotten the ticket. Just not seen them.

    Do I have any grounds to appeal?

    Iíd paid for parking just parked in front of a wall that had the signs on, saying for disabled. If Iíd have seen them, I would have parked elsewhere

    As we tend to major on private parking tickets here, PePiPoo will be your best bet for council tickets. Register there (but please note that a hotmail address won't work) and post a new thread; here's your link:

    Have a read through some of the other threads there before you post your own to get the hang of what information they need from you in your opening post - but as a minimum you will need to post redacted photos/scans of all correspondence you've received from the council (both sides, if appropriate) as they need to see all the small print.

    PePiPoo has an excellent success record in dealing with council tickets.
    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.
