A "friend of mine" was recently issued a parking ticket. He says the signage was plain misleading and he had bough a ticket, but it had expired. He managed to "obtain" an in-date tickey, and sent off this ticket when the snotogram followed. The narks dismissed his claim, saying that the warden checked the windscreen and the pay and display ticket had expired. Serial number quoted, and is supposed to have been photographed in place. The produced ticket - differring number - "was not on display on the windscreen". The in-date ticket has not been returned to him, although a photocpy has been taken. Should he front it out? Just keep saying "I had a ticket? " Etc.
