Getting your parking ticket overturned

It is one of those facts of life, especially if you drive and park in London. Sooner or later the likelyhood is you will end up getting a parking ticket.

Parking tickets are one of the things that send your blood pressure rocketing. It’s bad enough receiving one when you know you’ve broken the law, parking illegally. But there are times when your certain that you have parked within the rules.
Most people fume at this but then up paying it as they just can’t be bothered to contest it. Same Day couriers in London are only too aware that it’s worth contesting. This also goes for Same Day couriers in Manchester and Leeds

If you’ve got a good case, maybe the signs were not clear or even incorrect or maybe the yellow lines were faded.
Whatever you do, make sure you contest it.
If you’ve got a good reason to contest it, put in writing your reasons (and photo evidence) and the chances are you will have the ticket (PCN) cancelled.

If the ticket is not cancelled, all is not lost. You can still take it to the Traffic Penalty Tribunal, the independent body which covers 250 local councils in England and Wales. It is based in Manchester but arranges personal hearings around the country.

If you have a good case there is every chance it will be cancelled, because if the tribunual agree with your appeal, they have the power to force the council to quash it. What’s more you may even get your expenses paid if you have to attend.
