I was fined £50 when parking ticket had 47 minutes left to run

Echo: I was fined £50 when parking ticket had 47 minutes left to run I was fined £50 when parking ticket had 47 minutes left to run

A SHOPPER received a £50 parking fine – despite having almost half an hour left on his ticket.

Malcolm Noble, 66, of Green Lane, Leigh, paid 50p for an hour’s parking in Ceylon Road, Westcliff, to do Christmas shopping in Southend.

Despite having until 11.16am to return to his car, he was fined at 10.29am.

After driving off at 10.45am, the hapless shopper said he did not spot the penalty notice on his windscreen until he was halfway home – where he discovered it had been issued because the warden could not see the time on the ticket clearly.

He said: “The ticket was clearly stuck in my window. I’ve done nothing wrong, but I’ve been hit by a fine and I worry that if they get away with this they can use it against anyone.”

Southend Council parking manager Derek Kenyon said: “There is a set procedure laid down by the Department of Transport for people to follow if they wish to challenge a penalty charge notice for parking.

“The registered owner of the vehicle needs to write to the council explaining their challenge and enclosing any supporting evidence. We will then consider the matter.”

Another reason not to shop in Southend, not that many need one, as for this fiasco, sue them for the stress caused, and the numpty who issued the ticket, sack is the only option.

Ceylon Road to do shopping in southend....how could you do that in under 1 hour..? why would you walk in to town from Ceylon Road..? surely much more than 1 hour would be needed.
also i find it amazing that you could drive away and not spot a yellow parking ticket attached to your windscreen for several miles.... driving without due care springs to mind.
all sounds a bit odd to me.

Totally wrong story, it shouldn't be about the penalty/ticket, I think it should be blind man driving around Essex. He seriously needs to surrender his licence to the DVLA.
Article says he drove off without noticing the penalty on his windscreen until half way home! Aren't they quiet big, bright yellow and put on the drivers side to make them very easy to see. Hope he paid a visit to Specsavers on his shopping trip.
He then has the cheek to moan at the wardens for not being able to see his parking ticket.

Well, just maybe he wasn't going to walk into Southend - he may have driven there from somewhere a bit remote and then jumped on a bus? Plenty of buses passing along there going into town! At 66 he would have a free bus pass.

I really must congratulate the Echo!
Who'd else would have turned up over the Christmas break to interview Bill Nighy impersonator Malcolm Noble?
Mr Noble is rightly proud to own and wear such a Festive pullover, it truly portrays the true meaning of Christmas and the frustrations of parking over the holiday season.
Did not the baby Jesus' father Joseph have a bit of a 'mare parking the donkey?
Joseph too, paid 50 sheckles to a shyster to use a space next to his manger and like Malcolm, got a ticket.
Unlike Malcolm, Joseph went to petition the local Centurion, who upon learning that Joseph had parked within the rules set by his local bylaws, allowed Joseph to enjoy a night's free parking.

Mr Noble could well do with learning a few lessons from Joseph, and, unless he is hiding the arrival of the new messiah, should speak with his local parking co-ordinator.

Lets look at why this story is a bit odd....which is my whole point from the start.

1: He spent 50p for 1 hours parking as per story... But its £1 for 1 hours parking at Ceylon Road Council carpark (Check SBC website..i did)

2: He went into Southend from Ceylon Rd and did Christmas shopping..and back again with-in 29mins as he drove off at 10.45am he brought 1 hour from 10.16am until 11.16am..(As per story)...i say this ain't right for a 66 year old chap, as lets say 15 minutes walk into Town....and 15 mins walk back again either via Hamlet crt road or straight down London road then into southend,....that leaves him NO time to Christmas shop which is one of the busiest times of year for shopping.!!

3: Never spotted a Yellow and black parking ticket on his windscreen whilst driving home.

4: He states that his ticket was clearly stuck in his screen.....now look at the small white ticket in his hand, it looks suspiciously like a larger newer style one that has no sticky part (unlike the square sort with adverts on the rear), so how can it be stuck in the screen clearly....rested on the dash yes.

5: made sure his white ticket was clearly stuck in the screen....but failed to notice a larger one until halfway home.

These are what we have been given in the story.....are you telling me they all sound right..?

and to add i am sure there is photographic proof from the parking attendant ...to which Mr N will soon be able to view if he takes it further.

'Confusion'....Yeah seems like that and i am also sure he will just cough up the penalty charge if he has not done so already, would be nice if the echo reporter checked a few things out more thoroughly before putting this one out.

Whilst the the accuracy of the reporting of the Echo is suspect at times, I have a feeling that Mr Noble may well be regretting making a issue of this.

Getting the payment of the ticket wrong (if the comments of the previous posts are correct - which having parked around the area I have little doubt). But driving and not noticing with a big yellow ticket on his windscreen is not excusable.

I think 3 questions have got to be asked here:

1. Is this news?

2. Despite where he was parked, where he was shopping and how long he had paid for, could the Traffic Warden see the time on the ticket and was it clearly displayed?

3. Why do the ECHO choose to publish articles like this, because by looking at the comments, nobody is taking the side of Mr Noble and this anti Traffic Warden stance by the newspaper doesn't help anybody?

The council's quote is quite right as there is a perfectly good way of appealing a parking ticket and last I read the ECHO were not part of that appeals process.

My daughter got a parking ticket in June this year and I phoned the council as I wasn't happy with why she had recieved the ticket. The Parking Manager rejected my challenge and sent me some photographs taken by the Traffic Warden. Although my daughter thought that the car park ticket was displayed correctly, it was upside down in the photographs so the warden wouldn't be able to see the time.

As much as nobody likes getting a parking ticket, why do we always have to read about it when there is nothing else to fill the pages of a newspaper?

The Parking Manager rejected my challenge and sent me some photographs taken by the Traffic Warden. Although my daughter thought that the car park ticket was displayed correctly, it was upside down in the photographs so the warden wouldn't be able to see the time. As much as nobody likes getting a parking ticket, why do we always have to read about it when there is nothing else to fill the pages of a newspaper?[/p][/quote]Nobody like to get a parking ticket, but hey, break the rules, get a fine.....
