Parking fine 10:16 - Oct 11 with 855 viewssmellyjack

Hi just looking for any tips/advice

I have received a fixed penalty charge of £70, for parking outside Sainsbury’s in the uplands, this was at 8.45 on a Wednesday night, and the letter says this is area is a taxi rank. (I had no idea)

Any suggestions on how I could get this penalty from the council overturned?

You are not going to get it overturned, but don't you get a discount for paying promptly

You give it out, you take it back it`s all part of the game

Ask them to send you a picture before you pay because you cant remember being at that location at that time.

Send recorded or if you have an email address then do it that way.

Go and check out if it is a taxi rank. And if there aren't any signs, take pics of them (if you know what I mean!). If anything I thought it was just a bus stop - if you've been snapped in one of those then you haven't really got a leg to stand on.

I hate Swansea council's aggressive, punitive approach to drivers. Fair enough if someone's causing an obstruction but a little bit of common sense goes a long way. They're just looking to maximise revenue. Like sending the photovan around school areas at drop off an pick up time (after they's made everywhere residential permits only, so there's nowhere to park). Like painting the double yellows everywhere where people used to be able to park (legally) around the Liberty. Council Highways are arseholes.

Unless you are a blue badge holder there is no way out of this one I'm afraid.

Suck it up and move on.

Just pay it.

The labour Councillors down at county hall are having their Christmas party in 6 weeks someone's going to have to pay for it.

Why not you?

Phone them and arrange a standing order for a £1 a month. Tell them you'll struggle to pay it in one go etc etc. You won't miss it, they'll take forever to get it and it won't do your credit score any harm. I've got 13 months @£1 a month to run on my current £35 parking fine from two years ago. I could easily pay it in one go, but I won't.

There is an appeal procedure, however, unless they have completely fvcked up you'll be lucky to get off with it, good luck anyway.
Unless there is a problem with the signing, lining or the actual traffic order (if required this site) it'll be difficult

Really? Good advice.

I think you will have to pay. They'll turn round and say well you wouldn't park there at 8.45 in the morning.
Put it down to experience, but if you can pay in installments that's great.... I think?!

Well it works with Carmarthenshire County Council anyway. I got booked outside a flat I rent out as I don't have a permit, as I don't live there. Phoned the council, arranged £1 a month. My mate was here pissing himself laughing when I phoned them. It's the second time I've done it over the years.

Bite the bullet and pay up as soon as possible.

Put it down to experience and move on.

Not much chance of getting off them.

Have they got taxi markings on the road? I hate those vans, cash grabbing bastar*s..

Look's like this fella won his appeal. http://forums.pepipoo.com/index.php?showtopic=48904

Not really. It’s a single yellow restriction, with signs at each end. But on the road you’d struggle to make out the single yellow, it’s very worn. I checked tonight, that’s how sad I am! Saw another camera vehicle tonight too - a car with camera on roof bars rather than the normal van. I hate them with a passion (and no they haven’t caught me before).

Check the wording of the fine, check any legislation and any deviation from it and you have a case to challenge it. If it's from the council, there's a good chance something will be amiss

Just pay it pal.
I've seen episodes of " Don't pay we'll take it away". You don't want those fckers knocking your door in 12 months time.
