Got my first parking ticket through the post earlier


#1

£100! wow. fuck sake, man. only 11 minutes over, too. no good, man. no good.

assuming I can just ignore this


#2

You’ve done well to get to your early forties without a ticket, bud.


#3

only pay half if you pay it within 14(i think) days though


#4

Keep us posted!


#5

yes, yes I have. I’m a considerate guy, with excellent timekeeping.

I did get a ticket a couple years ago, but I was volunteering at the time, so I wrote to them and they said forget about it


#6

Is it a local authority ticket or a private site ticket?


#7

40 sniffs off if you pay within 14 days. these cunts can whistle though.


#8

private, man. Parking Eye.


#9

pretty sure I’m gonna get another, thinking about it. I was defo over my time in the same spot yesterday.

keep going to my mates coffee shop and forgetting about time, don’t I

Eh. They can sue you for the outstanding balance and get a CCJ against you. Looks like they do follow through with threats of court action. Up to you, I guess.


#11

oh, yeah…well fuck that. damn! need to get rid of this hunk of steel and get back out on the bike


#12

Fuck it off I’d say. The cost of recouping the money through the courts outweighs the fine so they only bother in a small % of cases.

Obviously keep an eye on your post and if it looks like they’re gonna take you to court just pay it before you get a CCJ.


#13

A hundred fucking pounds, where the fuck were you parked?!


#14

i would write to them and say i was volunteering


#15
