can lewes parking wardens get anymore pathetic ?. parked in Zone D outside the Lewes registry office on Thursday and put a visitor parking permit in my window. and as I didn't have a pen, I wrote my reg No in pencil (although it was a bit faint). but even so it was clearly displayed. result... 25 parking fine. am seriously considering boycotting any work inside Lewes town. darn job was only worth 30.

Kev , please challenge that nonsense. If your ticket was clear enough, just say that a pencil is a legitimate writing tool, that you judged it to be clear enough, and that is all one can reasonably do. Ask them how clear they think 'clear' is supposed to be , and where the Council's clearness criteria can be found. Can it be a little unclear, not at all unclear, pretty unclear? how is clearness being judged? If they start waffling on about being able to erase a pencil, then remind them that a pen can also be erased. This is the kind of nonsense that continues to undermine any notion that the scheme is not just a money making exercise.

Don't like the parking scheme ? Why not sign the petition on this forum ? The petition hasn't been very effective, although its been here for about 10 years.

I was going to challenge it, but it does say on the ticket "write in ink". so I know its not the right thing to do but I decided to pay early and only pay 25. instead of appealing and possibly having to pay 50. they win. I shall not make the same mistake again, but it does make one think about how viable it is to take work in the town. maybe I shall just stick to the surrounding area

Your choice. Maybe use a very faint grey ink pen next time. It is worth remembering that if you challenge a ticket , it will remain at 25 even if your challenge is unsuccessful, you then have the same time to pay before it goes up to 50. Also a ticket can be cancelled at any time.

thank you Lewes person. that's worth remembering, ive no doubt it is written on the back of the ticket somewhere, if had read it all. but thanks for the advise I will certainly keep that in mind for next time (hopfully there wont be a next time).

I certainly won't bother with Lewes when I can go to Brighton and get the Pink from customers who appreciate the way I work and accept they have to cover my parking charges.

Kev, from the moment you challenge the fine it effectively pauses it, so you can always challenge and not have to pay more if you aren't succesful.

Wrong. Being covered in some mainstream media outlets a few times in the 1970s, doesn't mean it was scientific consensus like... more
