Full Version: PCN Code: 01 Parked in restricted street
FightBack Forums > Queries > Council Parking Tickets & Clamping and Decriminalised Notices

The good wife managed to pick up a PCN for parking in our local village the other day. She parked where the shop keeper told her as well, which is a bit frustrating.

Excuse the bad photo-shopping, but it shows where she was parked, on the pavement, away from the edge. The Google Maps picture is an old one, so there are single yellow lines perpendicular to the road on the pavement, so "no loading" during prescribed hours.

The CEO has put it down as a Code 01, but the car wasn't actually on the street at all.

Thoughts?

Yellow lines govern the whole road (inc.pavements) from the centre of the carriageway to the property boundary.

Did the shopkeeper really tell the customer to park on the pavement, obstructing a vehicular access with a dropped kerb?
Or was she directed to park in the driveway or on the shop's own forecourt?

The shop has one vehicle space (to the left), but that was filled, with another vehicle parked in front, so her car was parked abreast the shop.

We really need to see the council photos.
If she was on the actual footway, (like the photoshop piccie) no chance of arguing against the contravention cited.
If on the shop forefront, possibly

so the difference between being on the pavement part (small blocks) or shopfront (larger square paving)?

Yes.


Yeah.
As said the yellow line restriction applies from centre of highway to boundary and included footways verges and even private frontages like the shop front where public have right of access.
But, where the forefront is separated by something positive like the paving and there is a history of parking use, an adjudicator would accept (usually) that the vehicle was outside the restricted area.
Not always, especially in larger cities and almost never in London where parking on footways is a specific contravention.
