Handy tips to avoid parking tickets and save you money!

Tip 1Tip 2Tip 3Tip 4
You usually have nothing to loose by sending in an initial appeal if you think you have been unfairly ticketed as every council that we have contacted will give you another 14 days to pay at the reduced rate even if they reject your appeal
Never stop on zig zag lines, thick yellow lines at bus stops or double red lines on red routes. There are literally thousands of cameras aimed at these areas. Councils will not even allow you 5 seconds. You can stop to drop off a passenger on single and double yellow lines of which there are usually plenty.
Be very careful about stopping at cash points as even if you don’t see a civil enforcement officer the chances are that a camera will be trained on you. Cash points provide rich pickings for cash strapped local authorities.
Be careful about parking on speed tables. Councils like Newham in London have started enforcing parking on speed tables as they say they are actualy the carriageway raised to meet the level of the pavement so people can cross the road. A speed table is like a road hump but at the top it has a flat area.
