Redbridge PCN stopped on a restricted bus stop or stand
« on: April 27, 2024, 04:09:22 pm »

Good afternoon,

My Mum received the attached PCN for dropping my Dad for his specsavers appointment, they have a disabled badge but they did not park.  My Dad has serious mobility issues so asked me to be dropped as close as possible to the opticians.  They did not know about the high level camera.

Can we appeal against this?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Ironic, isn't it, that there are three disabled spaces, just before the bus stop !

Their video shows you parked well inside the bus stop area.  Were all the disabled spaces occupied ? If they were, I suggest sending in reps on a "humble" basis, explaining why you stopped there, with all the disabled bays occupied you really had no other choice in view of your father's serious mobility issues. Did you have to unload a wheelchair or anything.  Reason to ask is this would confirm the mobility issue. You might care to tell us what this issue is, because the video shows him alighting your car without help.

Thank you for your reply, yes the disabled bays were occupied at the time and Dad walks mostly with a walking stick at the moment and is waiting for a knee operation for both legs.  I will raise a reps on this basis.

Here is the draft:

Dear ,

I am writing to appeal the Parking Charge Notice (PCN) issued to my Father, on 18th april 2024, for stopping at a restricted bus stop or stand. I kindly request your understanding and discretion in this matter.

On the day in question, my mother stopped briefly at the restricted area to allow my father, to alight from the vehicle. Unfortunately, the designated nearby disabled bays were fully occupied, necessitating a temporary stop at the bus stop area. I would like to emphasise that my father holds a valid disabled badge, a copy of which is attached for your reference.

Furthermore, my father is currently awaiting knee replacement surgery for both knees due to severe mobility issues. He relies on the aid of a walking stick or companion for mobility. The urgency of his condition and the difficulties he faces in movement further justify the brief stop at the bus stop area.

In light of these circumstances, I respectfully request the cancellation of the Parking Charge Notice. I assure you that this incident was a result of necessity and consideration for my father's well-being rather than a disregard for parking regulations.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if any further information or clarification is required regarding this representaion.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Sincerely,

Incandescent

Looks OK to me, well written and not confrontational at all. Please post-up their response when you get it.
