£100 fine reduced to £50 if you pay within 14 days. What would happen in the old days, would be that a parking warden would tell you to move off. Now it's done by cameras all very stealthy. George Orwell was right - Big Brother is watching us?
we have a fantastic traffic warden in the area where i work LGV multi drop he lets you park on all the loverly double yellow lines if you are loading/unloading he even has the time for a chat and a brew loverly man mind you if you park on the pavement within 16 inches of a wall wham bam you will get a ticket. Iguess hes just doing his job shame they all wernt like that on he deserves a MEDAL***
I spotted a little jobsworth in a service station on my way home from a trip down south, I think it was "Hilton Park service Station" just north of Birmingham. He was busy giving out tickets to lorry drivers who overstayed their two hours limit or whatever it is. Between issuing tickets he was going back to his own car which was parked on double yellow lines and also in a hatched?? area marked with "No Parking At All" signs. I told him that I thought he had a "Cheek" booking other drivers and yet parking where he shouldn't himself. He told me that he could park where he wanted and nobody could stop him. Incidently he wouldn't have been able to see through his rear window for football stickers and flags etc. (So I took a photo of him posing in his chosen spot) Who do I send the photo to? ..Bingalau..
Jackcoms. anskyber. It looks like I should send a copy to both of them, the Council and the Service Station operator. If the car park is not highway or public land it would seem to me that no one has authority to dish out parking tickets anyway. I would have thought that it is part of the motorway system. Who paints the yellow lines? Who employs this person. I'm puzzled completely now. ..Bingalau..
