    Hi all last week I got a 30 parking Fine for this! a offense code 151
    I'm appealing against it. Am I in the wrong?

    Were you parked on the curb?

    Unneccessary/willfull obstruction is code 151.

    When they issue parking tickets they have to take pictures too I think so I'd ask for them to supply those images.

    I can't see what's behind you - is there a drive? Having said that, I can't see a dropped curb. Are you parked opposite a drive?

    Can't see why you'd get a ticket, but how come there's no-one else is parked nearby? Were there any roadworks going on?

    what was the other side of the picture ie. what is on the pavement etc. From the picture you have done nothing wrong however it is not possible to be certain that there were no signs warning about parking due to works etc

    Those look like the markings outside a school etc. As one traffic warden put it - crocodile teeth...

    Even if there is a parking prohibition in place the road markings need to be in a serviceable condition. They quite clearly aren't.

    Appeal it, and make a formal complaint.
