    parking ticket.......

    right i parked up on double yellows nipped into greggs for a pasty. came out got in the car then just as i was settin of noticed a parking warden jotting down on his note pad, thought *** it set off and went.

    he had not put a ticket on my window by this point,
    dont know how long he had been there, but im sure i heard there are a few procedjures they hav to go through before they can convict you, (likin takin a picture as proof)

    anyway just wondered what sort of chance i hav of gettin off the hook

    If he got your reg number, does not matter if he did not put ticket on the car you still get the fine!

    Not true

    It depends on where it was and who the parking enforcers are.
    They have to prove you were there - this always includes a photograph, too.

    If you didn't get a ticket, 99% change you wont get anything. If they do send something, they'll need to provide evidence the car was there and state why you weren't notified of the charge. Basically, it'll get blown off.

    Where we live in Berkshire this is how it works, as soon as they have recorded your details the fine is yours! Maybe it does not work like that in different areas in the country but defo in Thames Valley! Hopefully elsewhere may be different? The other thing you need to be careful of is when they leave the ticket on your screen it gives you the option to pay at a reduced rate, without this you will have to wait for them to write to you and you will find this will add extra charges, so what started off as £30 will be £60. I know of several people that this has happened to. Good Luck hope you've been lucky.

    I hope so too,

    if they try and up the charges ill just say i didnt even see the ticket warden.

    i never actually looked him in the eye just noticed him as i pulled off, then saw him put his arms out and shrug his shoulders in the rear view mirror
