Looking for some help.
I parked my car in a private David Lloyds (Sports Club) car park. My tax disc which is fully paid up (was due Nov 2009 and paid in Nov 2009) had fallen down into the footwell. A police women spotted this and spoke to me, he opening remark was "it's your unlucky day".
She checked my was was not stolen, and the car was fully taxed and MOT'ed. It all came back ok. But she decided to issue me with a £60 fine for not displaying the tax correctly.
I've paid the fine, but can I contest it as it was on private land. The David Lloyds car park in question is for members only, who have a car park permit and is located behind a barrier so approx 1/4 from the public road.
One other point I think the lady was a rookie as she's made a number of errors on the PCN slip. She's stated failed to display an MOT, and she's said the offence happened on a public road when it was in a private car park.
Looking for any pointers, or other web sites to check out.
