    Default Parking Ticket - Opinions Please ?

    We got a ticket yesterday whilst sorting out an important repair (gas leak) .
    We were parked in a loading bay on a pay and display car park.
    Always use this bay everytime we go to this place , but this time we got a ticket - parked outside of the bay markings ... wtf ? the only thing I can think is they are saying we had parked over the pavement .
    So we rang the number on the ticket and they said we had to write to them to dispute it .
    They also said the warden had photographic evidence of the "violation" well .. so have I was the reply .
    Wat do you guys think ??

    I parked outside Frankie & Benny's in Altrincham a month ago in a loading bay for 5 hours whilst doing a service and never got a ticket as the manager said it was ok to be there.
    2 weeks ago i went to fit some parts and was in exactly the same place for 3/4 of an hour. I was back and to getting parts/tools etc the whole time but got a ticket
    I phoned to question it and was told that the first time i must have been lucky WHAT????? Lucky not to be seen for over 5 hours

    They are a law unto themselves and there is no arguing with them. Luckily my company pay all parking fines so it didn't cost me but still pi$$ed me off

    My opinion on parking and tickets.

    So, in a loading bay and not loading?

    If it says you can't park, and you did, then the ticket is valid.

    There are parking rules for a reason. Break them and expect a ticket - don't break them and you won't get one.

    End of story.

    I think a few people have missed my point , the bay is exclusively used by the place we were working at , maybe I forgot to mention that , the point I was trying to get accross was the fact they had done me for something I had not done ( as in parked outside the flippin bay , as in the pictures lol ) nvm.

    This is what I don't understand either , we are parked inside the bay markers and not overhanging the footpath , as I said I can only guess they are trying to get me for being over the pavement with the nose of the van , nothing else makes sense , but still I have the pics to show it aint over the pavement.
