Nice to e-meet you all !

I would like some advice before paying up this penalty charge notice...

i was visiting central cambridge and had a visitor permit to park on street resident parking space.
TL DR-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I was parked in a resident parking area which also had a single yellow line, the times are as seen in the attached picture.
I had a visitor permit which allows me to park in these while lines.
I got a ticket at 9:45AM on Friday (today)
And yes, the visitor permit was used correctly to cover me for the day. I got a PCN for parking on single yellow.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The street has marked areas in white for resident parking with a enforcement time on pole.
Whats also there is a single yellow on the same spaces.

It wasnt obvious to me that the yellow single line is enforcable even though you have a resident (visitor permit) for the designated area.

And there are no warnings that the single yellow enforcement surpasses the resident parking rules.

please see pictures for some details, and please let me know if there are any missing information.

My question is, is an arrangement like this obvious that the single yellow rules overpowers the rules of the resident permit even though both times are clearly labeled at the same time??

many thanks for your inputs in advance!

It is clear from your post that you did not understand what the sign was saying. The upper, (yellow) sign with the No Waiting symbol is for the single yellow line stating that it applies Mon-Sat 9.00 am to 5.00 pm. Then on the lower, (white) sign, only permit holders may park Mon-Sat 5.00pm until 8.00 pm. There are then no restrictions for the yellow line between 8.00 pm up to 9.00 am.

On Sunday the yellow line does not apply, but parking is restricted to permit holders only from 9.00 am to 8.00 pm.

So your PCN was correctly issued. Permits do NOT over-ride yellow line restrictions, sorry !

Show us the PCN, Cambridge PCNs have a flaw that could make them invalid. We need to see both sides, including the small print on the back.
