Quick update on the parking ticket story.
Got a letter from the council saying "Parking at double yellow lines is not permitted. Even if only part of a vehicle is parked at a double yellow line it is still liable to be issued with a parking ticket."
At this stage I thought it was going to tell me to pay up or else and was wondering if the early payment discount was out of time.
But the letter goes on to say "We can however appreciate that the vehicle was not causing an inconvenience or obstruction to other road users and in view of this the parking ticket will be cancelled on this occasion."
Get in. Make that one nil for common sense.
