    Long shot - parking ticket for car park

    Long shot - parking ticket for car park 16th Apr 18 at 10:47 AM
    Hi all

    Very long shot probably!

    I got a parking ticket for parking in a car park recently. While I wasnít parked in a designated bay, I parked by a curb where there were no yellow lines. At the ends of the car park spaces there are yellow hatched areas indicating no parking.

    It was outside a football ground on match day and many other cars were parked similar to me so presumably all got tickets. The local council must have made a fortune.

    Anyway Iím sure it is enforceable but wanted peoples opinion on the no markings to suggest you couldnít park there. If it were a normal highway youíd expect double yellows to say no parking.
    I've just started entering the competitions (July 07). When I win I'll update this signature. Look on the bright side, I shouldn't have to update it very often.

    If this is a proper council parking ticket you need to take this to pepipoo for best advice

    If it's a private parking company then go to the parking sub forum here.

    See the FAQ thread there for advice on how to deal with private parking invoices

    You would shorten your odds considerably by posting in an appropriate forum. Posting on parking issues here is quite futile.

    In Scotland, you get fined if not parked in a designated space (being over the line too). I'm starting to see that more often in England as well.

    If only there was a dedicated parking tickets board. I bet such a board would make this "long shot" into a short shot.
    This space for hire.

    Good point waamo and they could probably have some tips and pointers called Newbies.
    OP when you next log on ask a board guide, crabman, saavy or soolin by PM to move your post to the Parking Tickets, Fines and Parking sub-forum rather than starting a new thread. That way posters won't be running two threads and getting confused.
