been very quiet on the parking front as late did you know the boys in blue can send the parking tickets in the post and the fines have changed may cost you 75 to park on yellow lines now and much less in car parks perhaps 10 if you don't over stay to long

CB...a question for you.
I was sat outside St. Pancras school for 10 minutes picking my daughter up about 10 days ago. I was parked in a residents permit holders bay, The whole area is a bone of contention with people picking their kids up so when a parking attendant walked past and started taking numbers of cars, a few of the parents, me included, started questioning the attendant and asked him what he was doing.
"just logging the time you're here for" was his reply.
Could we be issued with tickets ?....no photos were taken and there's plenty of witnesses to his reply.
Am i going to get a nice surprise on my door mat or is he genuine.
Ta muchly

Wardens are pigs.
You can dress a pig in a suit but it still grunts.

hi FA the wardens have to give 5 mins then they will log the offending vehicle then give a further 5 mins and after 10 mins have passed then a ticket can be issued but 10 mins should be enough time for children to be picked up do you not agree remember a lot of the spaces are permit spaces and cars would not normally be allowed to park with out a permit as permit holders or residents are being deprived of the spaces however as long as the parents of the childred take no longer than 10 mins all should be well hope that helpa FA

More "power" to the wardens?
I look forward to seeing the tow truck accessing the narrow streets and twittens in the town.
Whatever next, NVQ (not very quick) in stationary traffic management?

So will the towtrucks take away all those selfishly parked cars in Paddock Row that force cars to drive on the pavement. How about the cars parked selfishly on the pavement outside the DIY store in Malling ijn specially marked 'pavement parking' bays, which don't seem to cause the obstruction that other pavement parking. NCP can't even issue a third of their tickets properly now (Councils own statistics of cancelled tickets, of 12,000 a year) So I wonder how they will manage. I hope Saint DYL is the recipient of as much sympathy as he/her gives others. Should we perhaps flog offenders, and drive bamboo up their fingernails too?
Of course there are some terrible drivers, parking apallingly in Lewes, but it is mainly the residents who are being harassed whilst trying to do simple things like load/unload outside their own homes, deal with emergencies, and try to get services and vistors to come to their homes. The consultation document actually acknowledges that some problems cannot be avoided, but they don't seem to have told any of the wardens, or the ticket cancellation office. there is no parking charter to tell anyone what the 'rules' are, or the grey areas of certain issues.
I hope they tow away the wardens van sometime. It has been seen several times illegally parked on the pavement outside Clifford Dann.

Whilst in priciple I am against the parking scheme there is no doubt there are now roads and streets in the town where service vehicles can get to easily whereas it was not so.
However why do some drivers park so badly that you can only get 2 cars in a 3 car bay! They are the ones that deserve to be ticketed in my opinion, not the short stop drop offs. The lines and boxes are there for a reason.

You don't have to read them, you can just errrrm. not bother reading them, turn off your computer, don't come on this site, leave the room/house/office.
Quite simple really even for a thickton like you or DYL
Plenty of suggestions for you although the most appropriate suggestion ends in "off"

Looking at the number of pointless contributions you both make, I don't think you are in a position to accuse other people of spending too much time at their computer. But its great to see how easy you are to wind up, as someone who didn't think I was right would have ignored my post.
Happy squabbling.
