Coventry city council. I paid for my ticket but the bays are just marked on the floor in different shaped slabs but are all the same color. I parked at dusk so wouldn't have been able to tell even if I did know to look for it. The bay on the opposite side of the road had a clear white dashed line on the road to demarcate the parking area but my side didnt
No painted lines at all on my side to show where the bay began or ends. It's impossible to see the different passing some shapes if cars are already parked over them as was the case. There was a parking sign to say parking is allowed and a meter which I used. The traffic warden said it was my duty to check under my car as I parked to check where the bay was but I didn't know there was as bay, there was just a line of parked cars which I joined but apparently some of my car was outside the bay. This is the second highest ticketed street in Coventry
Yes I do have photos. The parking bays are a casually on what was a pavement. Ie off the road. The only way of telling which was a bay was the difference in paving block sizes, the paving colour was the same. There were no on road lines to show where the parking bays begin and end. On the opposite side of the road there were clear bright white lines to show where the parking bays began and ended.
Can I seannotations.photos? They are on a word document with annotation
No the lines are not worn, they are not there at all. I'm on a journey and keep.losing wifi, can.I send you the document now via email? If so what address?
Have just sent.it, put yours.and my.name in.the subject bar
Thanks for patience
The white markings are on the OPPOSITE side of the road to.where I.parked. I parked on the side with just the black line on the road but I.parked on the pavemented bay. The first 3 photos are where I parked. Can you see the annotations on the photographs? There should be 5 photographs
Those are in the second and third photos. It shows buff coloured paving and a black.line alongside the kerb
Thanks jo, the paragraph about a reasonably observant motorist etc sounds good. I would like to know the council's responsibility regarding this and would like to know where in the legislation it says this so I.can quote.it to.them
