I bought a car park (NCP operated) ticket at Manningtree station yesterday at 11.06 am, opened my drivers door and put the ticket on the ledge. bought my rail ticket at 11.12am and went back to my car, opened the passenger door to put something in my glove compartment, locked up and got my train. Got back to my car at 8.30pm to see a penalty notice attached, and found that the non adhesive ticket was lying on my drivers seat probably blown there as it was a windy day when I returned to my car briefly to put something in my glove compartment.
£75 fine reduced to £50 if paid in 14 days however I have written to appeal. Anyone have any experience as to whether it is likely to be upheld or will it been seen as frivolous just like Osei Sankofa's sending off at Arsenal?
