A friend of mine received a parking fine for parking incorrectly – why was this? What do you class as parking incorrectly?A friend of mine received a parking fine for parking incorrectly – why was this? What do you class as parking incorrectly?​Parking fines are issued when people park in an irresponsible way that either restricts parking for someone else, or represents a danger to safety (for example by blocking access routes for emergency services). Irresponsible parking includes parking on double yellow lines, across more than one space, on grass verges, or in an accessible parking space reserved for people with disabilities/mobility issues. Fines will also be issued if a parking permit or pay and display ticket is not clearly displayed, or if someone parks in a car sharing space before 11am. <br>LTU Authoring
