Suffolk Police - a PCSO (in Bury St Edmunds)
Suffolk Police via a local PCSO in Bury St Edmunds
What comprises technically non compliant? There are traces of white markings on the road but it is impossible to see what they are meant to be. The Disabled marking is just a few white marks, though I understand that there is no legal requirement to use the word disabled along side a bay thus designated. Also, is there any place to appeal this on the grounds of fairness without going to Magistrates Court?
I have taken photos - of the lines, or absence of, and my car in the position it was when I was given the notice. Is there any point in ringing the police and querying the ticket at this stage? I thought I knew this area and yet I was caught out. A man in the shop opposite said people were being given tickets all the time because of the poor markings. I have never seen a PCSO on duty on Sunday in Bury before and suspect that this is one of their favourite spots for potential fines and I am pretty cross about it.
