Ah, I aint been there earlier than 3pm in recent months haha! The still getting a ticket bit always astounded me, I mean talk about wasting money, maintaining the machines and employing wardens to check for cars over 4 hours, that was pathetic.

http://forums.pepipoo.com/index.php is the place to go with your parking tickets.

Councils will generally reject an informal appeal as standard, even if you have a dead cert defence, afterall, they want your money, and the threat of it going up means that many will fold at this stage. For the brave (and sensible) you can wait for the "Notice to Owner" (NTO) and submit a formal appeal. Again, many appeals will be rejected at this stage, and you have to go to the independent adjudicator.

I've had numerous parking tickets, and i have won on appeal all of them, even when i was parked wrong, due to mistakes on the ticket or poorly worn or wrongly marked bays. Most you have to take all the way.

In this case, write and ask for the pictures that the CEO took, to see if you can see the displayed ticket in any of them.

I just park in Netto, monitored by a Private Parking Company, who although they try to give out tickets, they are not legally allowed to fine you.

I personally have more respect for your average smackhead then the local traffic wardens. Most of the are actually that bad and you never get a nice one.

I actually saw one trying to ticket a woman loading her pram into the car, struggling, becuse it took her more then 5 minutes to load the car up and she went over her ticket time, instead of asking if she needed help, or just leaving her alone. Thats enough for me, theyre ....

Not all of us can get in the multistory though Joe.

I dont mind paying for an hour or two on a saturday but if i stay a while i have a secret car park to use or just get the bus, its free for me anyway smile


I HATE cars.

i had a ticket off "uber traffic warden",then i tried to knock him off his scooter,accidentaly of course,my front left was on the white line in a parking bay.not over it ,just on it.i was in this bay for less than five minutes(how long do you take at a cash machine?) and he must of been waiting and watching cos i didnt even see him write the ticket.got back in my car and he was gone up the road.bet i am not the first he has got here either.....i was in work the other week and a warden was looking at our cars parked on what looks like a pavement but is actually part of our own land,we threatened to get him done for trespassing....the funny thing was that he was parked on double yellows to get out and look at our cars.

That the one with the glasses?

If it is, he's always around mine giving me tickets lol

Didn't know that!

Even throughout the week and Saturdays, it's only about 75p an hour

Mr Uber was out by Arrowe Park Hosp yesterday ticketing people parked on the road by the football pavilion - he knows his rules that one!

Strangly the first time that I saw him I thought he was a weirdo impersonating a warden as he didn't have a proper uniform on - the tickets he gives out are real though!

He's all over the Wirral unfortunately. I got a photo of him parking his bike illegally on Teehey Lane (where he was ticketing a row of people parking in a "loading bay"), I'm just wondering what to do with it now.

He does actually hide in the side roads off Woodchurch Road.
