I have been issued a parking ticket for parking across a pavement. The road to the rear of my property is very narrow and when I pulled up I decided to pull the car across the pavement on a section where there were double yellow lines. My car was entirley off the road, with nearly half of the car on my property (entrance to my garage) and the rest on the pavement. The council issuing the fine argue that the double yellow lines apply to the pavements as well and are enforcing it despite my protests. As I had parked on my property, but with half the car across the pavement, are the council right to enforce this fine? Many thanks Simon XXXXX
Can I check if you knwo the process by which I would take this further? As far as I am aware I need to wait for them to contact me but at what point would I need to engage legal representation?
I do want to contest this further but cant weigh the risk up until I know how much i risk spending.
