#817270 - 17th Aug 2013 10:09pm Parking ticket - Asda

Today my dad got a parking ticket by Asda. He was parked in the small lay-by on the bend on Welton Road (see map). It is double yellow lines but many people park there (there is a car on the google map image) and it's not a lay-by as such but an old factory entrance that has been gone many years. Parking there doesn't cause any obstruction to the highway. It is a council parking ticket and the traffic warden apologised and told my dad to appeal it. Does anyone know the procedure for appealing? Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.

I'm pretty sure that instructions as to how to appeal will be printed on the ticket

Thank you. I didn't really make myself clear in the first post. What I meant to ask was: is it worth him appealing? Just wondering people's opinions?? Thanks!

Many people also speed, does that mean it's ok for everyone else to do it. People know what can happen if they park on double yellow lines, so they have to be prepared to take the punishment.

Click here for details on how to appeal.
Don't fancy your dads chances, unless he had a blue badge.

Sorry to be so blunt, but next time don't park on double yellow lines, unless you are prepared to pay the fine.

doubt you'll have any luck appealing it unless the lines aren't complete/finished etc

Thank you everyone for taking the time to reply and your advice. I do agree about yellow lines but I did say I would do some research for him. smile

From Street View there could be a case that the lines are broken and not terminated correctly.

On the left side there is at least a 4ft gap in the lines.

No chance of winning an appeal in my opinion. I also fail to see why anyone would park their when asda has a huge car park.

Also I was misled by the title thread, the ticket was not in asda but a public road.

Sorry for being blunt and hope your dad has learn't a lesson.

Looking at the link Mark posted, if the lines are still as they are in that link, I believe they are unenforceable, for the reasons Mark gave. Definitely worth appealing.

I have parked here many times, i dont like parking in Asdas own spaces because of the way some *ssholes think its ok not to drive properly.

Thanks for the heads up anyway.

Surprised your Dad got ticketed here. A warden could sit in the bushes and get a shedload of tickets here.

Anyway, i am not condoning the practice but to check out your rights and basis of appeals have a look at this website. It is excellent with some very knowledgable people posting.

Ask your question on that forum and you will have a better understanding of things.
As others have said those lines look unenforcable.
P.S. used to be the entrance to Spectrum printing.

I haven't been for a look myself in the past couple of days but pretty sure my mum said they have been freshly painted. Thanks tho Mark, much appreciated that you took the time to check this out. I personally would never park there but I think my parents are a bit set in their ways after years of parking here when just running to cash point or for a pint of milk!
