    PCN for parking in Suspended Bay for 4 minutes

    PCN for parking in Suspended Bay for 4 minutes 11th May 18 at 1:07 PM
    Hey
    Just got a PCN for parking in parking space that is originally for cars, and clearly signposted to either Pay at Machine or Permit holders only. I popped in to a shop opposite to get some coins to pay for the parking, before I planned to go in to the Solicitors opposite for a Witness of Identity paper to be signed. I was gone a total of 3 minutes to find that I was served a PCN for Contravention 21. It was observed from 12.14 to 12.15- she gave me literally (less than) 60 seconds to issue the ticket.

    The yellow suspended parking bay notice was blocked by pedestrians on the pavement, waiting for either a bus, or just mingling as they do, so I was oblivious that is was suspended as a temporary bus stop. I was parked right next to the pole, which had both suspended bay notice below (waist height) and the normal parking regulations notice above.

    Surely giving me 60 seconds is un fair? She was also seriously rude to me when I contested and as I got in my car to drive away began to either take photos or film me driving away (seen in rear view mirror)

    Help please!!!!

    Post here, no HOTMAIL emails allowed, and NO posting without PCN pics or it's pointless:

    http://forums.pepipoo.com/index.php?showforum=30

    Both sides of the PCN are needed, all small print (redact the VRN data only).
    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:
    Top of the page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.
