April fools joke on parking meters

This morning, April 1st I see a number of NCP pay meters covered up with a poorly scribbled 'out of order' note and some gaffer tape covering the coin slot.
The warden said it was a joke and then ticketed all the cars who had not got a ticket (most of them) he said they'd have to challenge the ticket but should win.
What a nice surprise for some poor motorists in Lewes.
The warden did photograph the ticket machine to at least prove it had been covered up. Several machines were done around Cliffe area.

When the warden said it was a joke... was he refering to the out of order note or the parking scheme?

Clearly the warden was talking his uniform, he was sure that if all wardens were dressed in brick colours it woudl be far easier for them to hide and pounce on unsuspecting motorist criminals. He also conceded that all wardens should probable celebrate the fireworks by shoving a rocket up their backsides. I would say a rs e but the webmaster thinks that's really rather rude. @rse indeed.

Read the signs,look at the lines, park correctly no sweat no fee.
Park where you like and gamble thirty quid or nothing.
It's your choice.

Or do what I do. Dont register, tax or insure your wheels, park where you like and use the tickets as bog paper. Sorted
