London borough of Haringey - unfortunately this is a private school - Highgate Junior School and my car is a 6 month old mercedes ML, which means I'm fair game to them!
Contravention code 48 and it states on ticket:-
" who believed that the following contravention was being committed:
STOPPED IN A RESTRICTED AREA OUTSIDE A SCHOOL A HOSPITAL OR A FIRE, POLICE OR AMBULANCE STATION WHEN PROHIBITED"
but at present this is not a school as it is being rebuilt and no children are allowed near it! Surely this makes this contravention null and void?
No there were clear markings, but the building isn't a school anymore, how can it be it legal to give a ticket for this contravention if the building isn't being used as a school? I really want to take this up and I think it is totally wrong and unfair and just an excuse to raise revenue.
Hi Jo, yes wonder if you can, can you find some evidence where this has happened before and a council let the person of the infringement? And can you signpost me to where I might find more information to help me fight this unfair ticket? Taking my son to school this morning the whole area where it has the yellow zig zags and signage on road was full of workmen's trucks, vans and parent's cars parked there,with not 1 traffic warden in sight!
Well I'm going to have to go back and take measurements to see if all the zig zags and writing is within the requirements as laid out in law. I saw this information somewhere do you know what the requirement stipulates?
