Parked in a car park at 1618 parking on the street outside was free from 1830. When I returned to my car at 1930 I had a parking ticket on it the attendant was there, we didn't speak!
In the road outside cars were parked in all sorts of random ways partially obstructing the highway whereas I had committed the heinous crime of parking in a car park with incomprehensible signage!
We will see what the appeal results in! The whole system is nonsensical!
