    Bleeding ticket!

    Hi there,

    Got a PCN today it said I parked in a disabled bay allthough it was after 6:30.

    Quick question, anyone been in this issue before? Is it not allowed to park in a disabled bay after 6:30, when I assumed parking restrictions finished?

    Dont get me wrong, the whole road had empty room, but it was the cloest one to Nandos :D.

    Seriously im quite upset, as I thought after 6:30 its fine, plus I didnt see the bay as normaly I wouldnt park there. Maybe my attention was somone else at the time, but I will go back tomorrow and double check.

    Cheers guys!

    You can't park in a disabled bay at any time unless you have a blue badge. Parking restrictions (like after hours) don't apply to disabled bays.

    the bays are there for a reason

    Personally I think you should be jailed!

    Rules is rules, sorry son its more than my jobs worth.




    Seriously though disabled bays are reserved for a reason, I only hope you never have the cause to need one, then find you cant use one because someone who thought the rules didnt apply to them has used it. I'd like to see instant tow-aways applied to all abusers.

    LOL I hope the hot totty in short skirt was worth the fine unless she was a plant to divert your attention from the parking restriction signs, thus earning money from tickets :whistling:

    They are the experts on parking tickets, and speeding too
    It may be an unenforcable ticket, ask them they'll tell you the legal position without any bias
    When you ask, post a copy of the ticket front AND back as the wording on the ticket must be exactly right with regs or the ticket can be invalidated
    take a scan of it, or use a camera or your camera phone and put it on photobucket or some other site and paste the img link (save them asking you to do it after you ask about the ticket)

    I didn't know disable people stopped coming out after 6:30 :thinking:

    personally i never park in a disabled space because its kept for people who need it!
    and if the whole road was empty why didn't you just park another 10metres away and walk that little bit and have the decency to leave the space for someone who needs it

    They must all do the night shift.

    disabled spaces are enforcable 24 hours of the day every day with no exceptions - you should have known better - pay up its a lesson you wont forget

    Never mind mate - just pay up.

    Just a side note - considering pensioners are meant to be skint and get rubbish pensions, have you noticed how new most of the cars are in disabled bays?

    Why would you offer this advice?

    The OP was clearly parked illegaly, and has admitted so. Why should he try to wriggle off the hook for being an imbecile?

    Why would restrictions on disabled spaces stop after 6.30pm, do disabled drivers not come out after this time??? No sympathy, you'll just need to pay up I'm afraid....

    Only pensioners are disabled now??? My my, and here's me thinking for all these years that disability wasn't an age restricted thing!!! :oops:

    Hopefully OP will try and wriggle out of it and have his fine increased. Thinking disabled parking bays are only used up until 6.30, if stupidity was wealth this numpty would be as rich as Bill Gates

    I dont agree with parking in disability bays at all, think it is very poor show. You deserve the fine imho.

    agreed
    you should have got points on your licence nevermind a fine in fact you should have been made to resit your theory test for your sheer stupidity thinking you can't be disabled after 6:30
