    Strange how non mobility impaired people park in stupid places,like opposite tactile paving,which indicates a crossing point for the partially sighted.

    Yay, all the big hitters are joining in to show their superiority.

    nealglover, I am now in possession with more facts than I was previously.

    Yes, you now know she was parked illegally.

    Yes am I am going to contest it on a technicality.

    So you are going to wriggle out of it then ?

    Just the opposite of what you said in the OP.

    However there is the point that the ticket is potentially wrong. At what point do you roll over and pay up, Im not sure. But I’d rather not pay out £35 on an incorrect fine thanks.

    She was parked illegally.
    She got a ticket.

    Suck it up.

    There is also the issue of the person issuing the ticket not knowing the subtle differences between offences.

    So it a “technicality” then ?

    That sounds very much like a “wriggle” to me.

    But dont let that put you off putting me down from your high horse.

    Classic put down.

    Often heard from people who are doing something they know they shouldn’t, and trying to justify their actions.

    To late to pop the kettle on?

    fwiw it’s pretty obvious it’s a crossing/walk way to me.

    She got a ticket.

    Suck it up.

    Well, the code on the ticket suggests she wasn’t parked as suggested by the fpn. An appeal isn’t going to hurt… Do it, appeal……

    Is the fine halved if you pay within 14 days? If so bear in mind you might have to pay double if you challenge and it is refused.

    Contesting the ticket will stop the clock on the half price period.

    Not necessarily. It will help if you ask them to, and they agree, but it’s not guaranteed.

    IF the wrong code has been used you will win an appeal, absolutely no question.

    It does look a bit of a daft place to park though to be fair 😉

    Well….I reckon go for it OP. I’d contest it, in the wrong or not. I’d much rather stick that fine money in a charity box than pay it to the local council.

    Having mulled this over last night further. We’ve decided that the path of least resistance lies with just paying the £35 fine.
    If she contests it, she may lose, so we’re then liable for the full fine at £70.
    At the end of the day, the o/h parked in a place she shouldn’t have, so she’ll have to suck it up, wrong code on the ticket or not.
    So all the hand wringers can feel smug and warm that they’re right and we’re wrong for even thinking that we should contest it.
    To those who have offered advice without judgement or comment, thank you for your help.
