Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Could you please explain your situation a little more?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Hi there I was issued a PCN notice for a ticket on the 19/04/2017 at 20:24. My ticket was valid until 19/04/2017 at 20:20. I am reading on several sites including the AA website that I have a 10 min grace period apon which they cannot issue me a fine and by doing so is illegal. Can you advise if this is true?
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 1 month ago.

Yes. Under Deregulation Act 2015 you are permitted 10 mins grace.

As such you can appeal because of the Act.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
