Parking Ticket Question
« on: March 01, 2012, 11:16:14 PM »
I was parked outside a shop on the Ormeau Road and noticed one of those privateer f**kers in the red jackets writing out a ticket so I ran out aplogised and jumped in the car and away before he could finish the ticket.    Will I get one in the post??

They're not all bad. Got one yesterday saying Parking Fine and was delighted at the compliment.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

What's the chances of the Council in Kells, Co Meath chasing a NI registered car owner for a 40 yo yo parking fine? Just wondering like ::)

Good chance you will, was talkin to someone this happened to recently, he appealed it and eventually it was thrown out.
last week i bought a ticket in a pay and display car park and later on that day reused it another car park as the date and time were still valid. I got back to find a fine on the windscreen, traffic warden was still there, apparently you need a seperate ticket for every car park. Appealed it but i wont be holding my breath!

the wife was in newry yesterday and parked in the Merchant Quay Retail Park (free parking).

when she came back to the car there was a parking ticket for £60 from these cnuts:

http://www.ukparkingcontrol.com/

it said on the ticket she was fined because she left the site. i.e. because she didnt go shopping in the park

is this enforcable? should it just be ignored?

They could never enforce it. I'm sure if she thinks about it she will remember leaving the car park to go to a bank machine and returning to Merchants Quay to do some shopping. Unfortunately they did not have your favourite brand of wine/aftershave/socks so she did not buy anything.

Basically you have no chance of appealing a parking fine successfully unless you have a cast iron reason or excuse for having parked illegally in the first place, normally being elderly, disabled and confused, in my experience, and im none of the three! Just about got an elderly relative off a rap recently.He got a parking ticket for parking in disablef bay outside his  own door.Had his blue badge on dashboard but not opened as he hurried back indoors to look after his infirm spouse.He got the ticket and the appeal was grudgingly and eventually accepted but it was touch and go.
