How to avoid parking tickets

  • Check the traffic signs and lines to ensure loading is permitted before you start.
  • Tell any police officer, traffic warden or parking attendant that you are loading and that you will move when you are finished.
  • If you are leaving the vehicle unattended try to make it obvious you are loading. 
  • You should not use hazard lights when loading - if your vehicle is creating a hazard it should not be there.

If you get a parking ticket

Do not ignore it - penalties can escalate if you don't pay or challenge promptly. Pay the fine quickly if you realise you were in the wrong. This will save you time and inconvenience.

If you see the attendant or warden, ask them to make a note of the fact you were loading in their note book. This might help if you challenge the ticket.

If you have been away from the vehicle loading and return to find a parking ticket, you should be prepared to explain (to the Council or Adjudicator) exactly why it took so long and what you were doing. Keep copies of documentary evidence e.g. delivery notes.
