    Grrrrr Parking fine

    Hi all having a rant just been to the hospital at Burton for an awful procedure,, Yes i parked on a single yellow line as i thought i would be put in time for the no parking between hours 9.30 til 6.30
    I came out at 9.47 and yes i had a lovely yellow ticket on my windscreen OUCH
    No parking attendant around to speak to
    Is there anyone that can advise me
    I know i was naughty but needed to get there in time and now this !!!!

    Advise you about what? You parked on a yellow line during a restricted time. It's a fair cop, Guv.

    why would you need to speak to them? you were parked there when you shouldnt have been so what do you expect them to say???:?

    What you needed to do was get there in enough time to find a proper parking space, I don't see much sympathy coming your way tbh.

    My advice is don't park where you shouldn't, simples

    Get the bus next time.

    My advise is to pay the fine and not to park illegally.

    what's that about then? :thinking:

    bit harsh for 17 mins imo

    Are there any mistakes on the ticket as even the smallest incorrect detail invalidates the ticket (check it thoroughly):thinking:

    Should the parking attendent wait around for 20 minutes just in case the driver comes back? If thats the case why not just change the free legal parking time until 9.50.

    Unlucky to get done for that amount of time but you took the risk so need to take it on the chin, at least you weren't towed

    if you cant pay the fine, dont do the crime. Simples.

    Is the ticket off a council, does it have the local councils name at the top of the ticket, or is it from a private company?

    Why not have them wait around for 2 hours and get them to do a full valet on the car to give them something to do while they are waiting so you aren't so annoyed when you get a ticket cos at least your car is clean?

    Although I prob wouldn't mind a ticket if they did that cos my car's filthy, I'd prob get a 2nd ticket for the dirt on it

    That would be great, what a fantastic idea. - Possible business moonlighting venture for traffic wardens :thumbsup:

    On a serious note, yes op was naughty- bad op! :whistling:

    I know the Hospital at Burton and they have a large carpark so I can't see what the issue was:? Just leave home earlier
