hello i can help you. was the area you parked sign posted with a maximum stay? are the signs in clear view?
Sorry for the delay. Who is the issuer please?
Ok. Are you prepared to risk being sued?
Does that mean you are not willing to go to court?
Some people aren't.
Are you prepared to take the risk?
Ok. What is your defence to the substantive charge?
You seem to accept overstaying?
Do they allege overstaying?
Do the signs prohibit any stay beyond 2 hours?
You didn't answer that question anywhere that I can see.
That doesn't overtly prevent feeding the meter. In that case you could rely on the second ticket.
Whether you should or not really depends on how much time you want to spend on this. Court cases do take up time. That said, if you feel strongly enough then it would be worth fighting the matter.
The reality is that you might have to take time off work to argue this, there would be some hassle in gathering the evidence and responding to correspondence.
If you are prepared to deal with that then fight the matter. you should win.
It is a question really of how important your principles are to you.
Can I clarify anything for you?
I'm not sure how to express it differently. You can rely on the second ticket. It does not say you cannot do that.
I think they probably think that because they haven't considered the second ticket.
