1. Sometimes in narrow streets in London drivers park partly on the pavement in order to assist the free flow of traffic. However you may well receive a penalty charge notice even though your intentions may have been good! In such cases you should write in although it is unlikely that you would be successful.
2. May be one of your wheels was on the pavement because you did a bad parking job and the kerb was very low so you didn’t realise that you were partly on the pavement. Again you could write in but don’t hold your breath.
3. Please remember that you may cite compassionate grounds as a reason for asking for your PCN to be cancelled.
Please see our section on parking adjudicators decisions which will have details of cases for this contravention.
Below: Below are signs and road markings that should be in situ either at the roadside or on the pavement where pavement parking is allowed. Please note the permitted variations and any sizes shown.
