Motorist wins his parking ticket battle

News | Published:

VICTORY has been declared by an islander who has had a parking ticket overturned.

Alan Price, 31, parked his car on the Albert Pier – on the 'wing' at the top left – to head off for a day in Sark in September.

On getting out of his car, he looked around for a sign to see how long the parking spaces were for.

He spotted one which said '10 hours' so assumed there was no risk.

But on returning, the psychiatric nurse had a ticket stating he had parked too long.

Further inspection found a sign saying the space was in fact a two-hour, but Mr Price believes that because he was closer to the 10-hour sign, it was misleading.

And following a prolonged campaign with the authorities, he says the ticket has been now refunded.
