If parking ticket wass issued in Southwark, you should still contact a Southwark Councillor. (I used to have the opposite problem sometimes, when my constituents would come to me aboyt a ticket issued in Camden or wherever, & there wasn't anything I could do about it.) Sure, contact Nick, but he isn't a one man band. If you phone 7525 1111 & tell them where the ticket was issued, they should (hopefully) be able to tell you name & contact details for Cllrs for that area. You can then phone them or write to them at Members Room, Southwark Town Hall, SE5 8UB. The advantage of this is that they should know their area & might have other people with same problem. Good luck
Yes Jo Jo,
That partly why I used this forum to gripe. (As well as the fact that I was pretty pissed off.) But have you noticed that since that drinking session he has stopped posting. Was it something we said? Or maybe you were not the girl he thought you would be.
I was ticketed in Clapham on Friday (and clamped tonight, but that's another story!). I was parked on a double yellow at 2am, in a quiet back street. I thought that double yellows were no parking during the day and that at that time it'd be okay at that hour? Have I got it totally wrong? Any guidance or pointers to where I can find out the info would be much appreciated. Grrrr. Bl***y traffic wardens and parking restrictions.
The parking services, if you can call them that are nothing more than licenced moder-day highwaymen in my opinion.
I have a disabled permit and live in a very quiet street that is not a major parking violation priority.
Due to my ill health and my need to visit my a doctor urgently, I forgot to put my permit up. I received two PCNs whjich cost me £100.
The treatment I received at the hands of the totally inept Parking Shop was worthy of a former Soviet state. They refused no less than three credit cards even though they had been authorised. They claimed that my address was incorrect on their system even tghough I have lived there for fifteen years and all my Southwark utility bills come to this address!
I spoke to the Manager who tried to fob me off with some waffle about credit card irregularities causing Southwark to return debited funds. It appears that even though my details were correct, their computer system said otherwise.
The whole system needs to be reviewed and Apcoa, the company charged with running parking, needs to sort out their staff and systems.
