]I have received a PNC described as "Parked in restricted Street during prescribed hours"

I was parked outside a shop arranging to get some keys cut, there is parking outside the shop and there was a car already there
I parked behind it but to the right so that the car could get out without moving my car

I was parked about 9" possible a foot on the pavement and there were some very badly marked double Yellows on the road

I was out in a flash but the guy had already ticketed the car

I explained the only reason I was parked like that was to let the other car out but he was an enforcement officer and didn't want to know

I explained also that I was not blocking the pavement and a old lady with a trolley walked passed as we talked

He didn't wish to remove the ticket

do I have any case as I've never heard of Parked in restricted Street during prescribed hours

cheers

Here is the location: -

So, essentially, the CEO was obviously seeing how he could make up his daily quota of PCNs to be issued and saw you partly on the pavement section; bingo ! As the double-yellows cover the whole road, footway as well as carriageway, he is correct, but a bit pedantic. Whether you'd get off this one on de minimis (trivial offence) grounds I am not so sure. GSV shows cars parked on what seems to be a well-used parking area, and Mr Foggs' shop for the keys

so the problem is, if I'm parked on the pavement at all and there are Yellow lines (even if badly marked)

I'm toast as my boys say

Basically yes. If you want to argue it, you'll have to stand your ground and be prepared to take them all the way to the Traffic Penalty Tribunal. You have to forego the discount if you do, though. My view is it's 50/50 in betting terms.
