I dropped something off at St Peter & St James charity shop. I had a disabled badge so thought it OK on a double yellow line for just two minutes. Slammed with a £100 fine. This is extortion.

There are double yellow lines on the kerb there as well, meaning absolutely no loading or unloading at any time by anyone.

Did you get nicked by an NCP Parking Attendant or by the dodgey company that rips people off for parking outside Laura Ashley?
If it's the latter just ignore it

People with valid disabled badges can park on double yellow lines in accordance with the rules. Appeal it.

Clearly you did not just drop someone off...you must have got out of the car, left it and returned later...are you actually disabled?

Clearly they did not drop someone off - they dropped something off . Are you actually disabled or just myopic? Kind regards, the P taker.

If they take it to court, I strongly doubt that any magistrate would support this absurd action.

If it was issued by Capital 2 Coast(someting like that) and is called a parking charge notice, use it as a firelighter. I've had upwards of 10 of these. They send a flurry of paper for a couple of months threatening testicle removal etc then silence. Ignore and sleep soundly in you bed.

In what sense is this area a car park? Just because bits of the private land is painted up to look like a set of parking spaces, doesn't mean anything. It's private land masquerading as a car park. Does anyone know whether it is possible to turn up with a car and park on this patch of ground without being mugged for a £100 charge. If this was any other product that was being offered for sale, Trading Standards would pursue them for an offence against the Trades Descriptions Act. No way is this land a car park.

Who are these people who mysteriously appear and put tickets on the cars? Do they lie in wait all day or is it just the luck of the draw?

Can anyone actualy inform us where the camera that takes these pictures is?
I've sat in the car there a couple of times and have not been done. I count myself lucky considering the constant stream of stories on this forum.
It's a bit of a sport for me now as I stand there outside Laura Ashley looking for the camera that causes so much missery.
I can't see anything that covers the complete area there and have come to the conclusion that this cash cow is a surreptitious parasite and not a fixed feature. I could be wrong and often am....

Oh, it's a camera - sorry, I was being a bit thick. In that case, I'll just just cover the number plates up.

They look like small black plastic domes. There is one camera on the wall above the back of the precinct shops, and one on the north wall of Laura Ashley. Object to Waitrose, they own the site.
