|Thank the Right Hon Eric Pickles MP (as was) for this helpful law|
Mr Mustard's client paid for parking up until 10:40 for the correct bay and vehicle.
A traffic warden wandered along at 10:42 and issued a PCN at 10:43. Even a vulture waits until you are dead & rotting a bit before they it your eyes out.
The motorist contacted the council and pointed out that 10 minutes must elapse before a PCN can be issued (although technically you are in contravention).
So, the traffic warden having made an error by pouncing on his/her prey early, the back office, (probably NSL in Scotland somewhere) compounded the error by rejecting a perfectly valid challenge.
Councils are meant to uphold the law not breach it. Do you suppose they are blinded by their relentless pursuit of revenue?
