Got a parking ticket today (bank holiday) after Parking Attendant lies

Just got a traffic ticket today in Watford when I popped into the Harlequin Shopping Centre.

I spoke to a Parking Attendant to see if I was allowed to park on the yellow line (as it's Bank Holiday) and they said it was fine. I returned to my car after an hour and found that I had been given a ticket.

I'm planning on appealing it, but it's going to be extremely difficult to prove that I was lied to.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Typical 'victim'. Likely to have several 'compo' claims on the go.

Take responsibility for your own actions!

It would say on the plate when the restrictions apply. ie, No waiting Mon-Fri 8am-6pm.
Any relaxed times would be stated, eg, 'except bank holidays'. If it says only 'No waiting Mon-Fri 8am-6pm' (or whatever times) and nothing else then pay up I'm afraids!

When he said 'it's fine' he might have thought you said 'what grade of sandpaper should I use to prepare my front door for painting'?

Yeah I been to the harlequin centre alot and there is virtually no spaces in the multistorey car parks

Might aswell ask the local pedo if you should take your kids in school or just leave them at the front.

I got a ticket for parking in a restricted area which wasn't clearly marked, when I got back there was a warden nearby who spent 10 minutes sympathizing with me saying he wouldn't of give me the ticket, turns out it was him who gave it me!

Traffic wardens are lying scum and should be ostracized from society.

Ok, so who should police illegal parking? The police? who? Or should we just let everyone park where they like?

Ask anyone who drives for a living, ie a bus or taxi driver if they are scum. The scum are the people who just park where they like with no consideration of the angst they cause to others stuck in congestion caused by them.
