Hi guys hoping you can help me.

Got a ticket recently after parking by some roadworks on an apparently marked disabled bay. The sign stating this was within the cordon of the roadworks and the bay had basically no markings.

Here's some pictures, both of at the time and when I returned to the alleged scene of the incursion. (Note: roadworks had been taken down somewhat when I returned)

I'm thinking that my best argument is the complete lack of markings? Any advice as it doesn't seem fair to ticket in an unmaintained bay.

I'm awaiting their evidence with my PCN, I'd be interested to see what photos they've managed to take because the fact is after popping in there twice to have a look on my way home from work I can't see any lines!

Get your own photos anyway.
General views, not simply close ups.
If it comes to it, an adjudicator must be satisfied that the markings are so worn as to be useless.
You should be able to show this.

You say you're awaiting their evidence, have you actually asked them for the photos? Have you checked if they can be accessed on the council's website?

Interesting as I didn't see any signs. And it says no bay, no parking. I wonder what parking infringment I actually commited unknowingly. It's either a bay that's properly marked or it's not and therefore illegal to park. so where does this leave me in regards to being accused of parking in a disabled bay. Seems a bit of a grey area.

As for the photos I wouldn't know where to even begin to get the council's photos, I assumed they'd send them over with the NtO

Cheers

Have a look on the council website, if there's nothing there, email them and ask.

It leaves you being accused of parking in a disabled bay. It seems a bit of a grey area to me too; could do with prescribed white lines to brighten it up a bit. wink.gif
