Are council vehicles exempt from being issued penalty notices? Our local ticket people seem to have problems seeing the large flat-backed lorries parked all over the pavement and on double yellows. (Not just a one-off, it’s every week here – grass cutters, meals on wheels etc).
I’m a bit sore as I got a ticket for being parked on double yellows and “blocking access for wheelchair users and people with pushchairs/prams” which I accepted and paid. But makes my blood boil to not only see council vehicles doing what I did, but also seeing ticket officers on mopeds drive past these vans.
Can I put carpet tacks under their wheels? Is that acceptable?
I work for a council and got two tickets when I parked in our own car park but forgot to show my pass, even though the Car Parks Dept know my car and reg and knew it was mine, I still had to pay so show that we are no different than Joe Public…
But if they are some form for “service” vehicle they are likely to be excused..
