If you receive a parking ticket from a Local Authority which you believe to be unfair, you have rights of appeal. The grounds of appeal for a parking ticket are limited however and you have to act within a certain period of time. You cannot pay the ticket "under protest" and appeal later.
Which? Legal Service lawyers can advise you on:
1. What the on the grounds of appeal are, the time limits, and what to do if you think the local authority have not issued the ticket correctly.
2. What to do if you receive a parking ticket and/or are clamped by a private company when parking in a private car park. In this case you may have to pay the fine/release fee under protest and claim it back later.
