bristol city council pcn number bs11156976

Expert:  Jo C. replied 2 years ago.
That is not good I'm afraid.
This is a local council fine so punitive by design. They do not have to show that the fine represents their loss. This is not a contractual issue.
It is really no more complicated than that. However long you were there makes no difference. If you were parked unlawfully and there is no challenge to that then they are free to issue PCNs.
I'm very sorry but I have to give you truthful information and the point you are raising is not a challenge.
Can I clarify anything for you?
