No sadly not. The alleged offence was caught on CCTV by the local council's mast. As my wife had no idea that she maybe committing an offence no photos were taken.
Please can I ask that you make every effort to read what I have written. I said the wheels protruded over a yellow line. I have copied a link from Google maps for further clarity https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&tab=wl I hope that helps. Many thanks.
Okay, the link was designed to assist.... you can view the site on google street view. The parking bay is in front of Blockbuster video store. There is a scooped parking bay for about 3-4 cars which is cut into the pavement. On the road side part of the bay runs a yellow line which the off side wheels are breaking. I enclose this image of the alleged offence.
Yes I can see that it might appear like that however (and this is why I was trying to illustrate this with the street view link) there is actually a dedicated and indented parking bay there. You'll notice in the picture that a lorry is also parked there to unload. What I really want to clarify is that if this contravention 62 is purely and simply for parking on the pavement then this picture surely must be unenforceable as it doesn't show any wheels on the pavement. What I am unclear on and really need your assistance for is does the same contravention code apply in some way for the car's right hand wheels cutting the line on the road?
Okay that's great thank you. The bay is actually a designated parking bay but is also used for loading. My query with regards XXXXX XXXXX was, is unloading a defence, however I take your point that the substantive argument is whether how the car is parked contravenes section 62. So just to clarify, in your view, cutting the yellow line does not contravene section 62?
