The ticket states Lillieshall Rd ( I have never stopped there) but I was in Macauley Rd and yes I was in a resident bay due to to illegally parked cars where a parking suspension is in place for building works which I was delivering to site and unable to park because of a car with black out plates, ( deliberately taped over) and a Romanian reg car being there without being ticketed. The warden was also seen talking to the Romanian car owner.
O,k thanks Jo,
The road is around the corner from this road.
What do you mean by prohibition is wrong if location is wrong?
Does that mean the council are technically wrong because of the address?
Does the council have to provide photographic proof, if asked, or is this just on the say so of the warden entirely?
So as it stands this is on the the say of the council depending on prohibitions and considering they don't have a photo of my vehicle ( or have to provide one) in the road they state, this means that they can pursue me without (photo) evidence it was in the road stated?
I should the submit evidence that I did with the car with blacked out plates on the road and the other cars. I didn't submit a picture of my car but as you say they don't need photographs and only need to rely on the wardens word. I can't win really then? It's just down to the council and their nepotism/cronyism towards their corrupt warden. I am at a lose as what to do because it can be costly.
What I mean't by blacked/taped over plates was that it was done by the owner not me but this was over looked by the warden.
So if I have a photo of my car in the bay on Macauley Rd, although I would be technically in the wrong the fact that it proves I wasn't on lillieshall Rd, as they state, then I could still get my fine doubled?
In your opinion based on the way the council don't need evidence or have not responded/commented to my statement other than quoting a standard line about regulations, what would you recommend I do from here?
