Brighton traffic wardens ticket broken down car

The Argus: Brighton traffic wardens ticket broken down car Brighton traffic wardens ticket broken down car

Passers-by were stunned when they saw Brighton traffic wardens handing out a parking ticket for a broken down car.

Residents watched in disbelief at the actions employed by Brighton and Hove City Council wardens when the car was spotted in the middle of Ditchling Road, next to The Level.

Estelle Francis was walking past when she stumbled across and photographed the incident.

Speaking to The Argus, she said: “I was walking by and thought the two men were police. But then I saw them putting a ticket on the windscreen “I couldn't believe it.

“It was clear the driver had broken down, the hazard lights were on.”

She told how the driver had left the car to get help when the two wardens pounced.

She said: “Instead of calling the police or making sure the area was safe they seemed more concerned with handing out the parking ticket.

“Cars were still going by at quite a speed, it was dangerous. I just thought this really takes the biscuit. I've never seen anything like it.”

Brighton and Hove City Council has come in for criticism in recent years for the amount of money they make from parking.

For the last set of full results in 2012/13, the authority made £4.37million from parking tickets alone. This was up from £4.31million in 2011/12 and £3.69million in 2011/10.

In December last year it was revealed the council's overall profit from parking services was £16.3million - the most of any local authority outside of London.

The total was more than twice the amount of cities such as Manchester and the London borough of Islington.

Critics have called on the council to reduce charges but the local authority states all money used to improve city transport.

Speaking about the specific incident yesterday, the council said they were unable to comment.

A spokesman said: “We don't provide commentary on individual cases. The driver is well within their rights to make a case for appeal. That will be considered in time.

“However it would be unfair for us to comment beforehand.”

And with w@nk**s like that defending the utter stupidity of these and the NCP managers parked in the disabled bay whilst they went shopping is it any wonder we all know that BHCC and NCP are only interested in the money.

Why has this poor person now got the hassle of appealing when common sence could easily been applied then or NOW?

But where was the driver? Why did he not use his mobile to call for help, and wait in or around the car? At the very least he could have left a note.

HJ says its great that the Council acted so swiftly in issuing a penalty ticket for the driver. Hopefully the car was subsequently towed to the pound and then scrapped.

If only all cars could follow this process!

Yes and whatsmore, how much is such an appeal going to cost us?

Two traffic wardens rushing to ticket a clearly broken down car just appears vindictive to me, I just hope the driver was a local who is aware of the score here in B&H and not a visitor who will be put off returning.

They are not traffic wardens and that is the problem. In the old days traffic wardens helped control traffic, gave advice and acted sensibly when cars were illegally parked. Now that they are enforcement officers their sole purpose is to enforce the parking regulations and make money.

Mindless money grabbing trash - could this council make the roads any worse or more expensive to drive on.
This morning traffic was back up bumper to bumper from the 7 Dials to the Church of the Good Shepherd in Dyke Rd - great system!!
It's shame that Davey and his foot soldiers don't try and improve traffic flow rather than brief the "wardens" to ticket the easy pickings?

If the wardens hadn't ticketed it you can guarantee that they'd have been reprimanded by their company, hopefully the owner will successfully appeal

Perhaps he didn't have a mobile, perhaps he couldn't get a signal, does it matter? I doubt he'd have left the car to get help if he didn't have to.

If the parking wardens weren't robots they could have kept an eye out for the driver and offered to help push the car over to a safe place, but that would have been the sensible thing to do.

I hope the driver identifies himself publicly so the council and the enforcement officer gets some negative press over this.

Surely they are parking enforcement officers and not highway officers, if a car is in the middle of the road or more than 4 foot from the curb then they have no entitlement to ticket a vehicle. Sounds like these idiots are real jobs worths and deserve all they receive in future, Karma is a wonderful b!tch.

If some of you guys had bothered to do some research on the INTERNET before bothering posting, you'd have discovered that broken down vehicles are exempt from parking fines. If this vehicle is genuinely broken down and the motorist has his paper work, then he can appeal and the matter won't be pursued. People will try to pass off running out of petrol or not having serviced their car as a breakdown, which is just scroaty (not much of that in Brighton). Some motorists also used to park illegally, leave the bonnet open, and go and do some shopping, or drive around with a 'broken down' note on the dash and park wherever they felt like. I hope this has informed you guys, now go and treat yourselves to a nice, well earned *@#k

I wonder if any of the posters know this actual location? It is a well known parking spot for the visitors to the new Open Market building site, vans/lorries/cars parked in the middle of the road most times of the day. There has been no confirmation from the person taking the photograph that the vehicle was actually broken down, I would place a decent wager that the driver was "on site" as opposed to "broken down". Whilst I'm not in favour of some of the overzealous activities of the wardens I can see they are doing their job which is what any employer would ask of them & as said above if the case IS genuine then the ticket will be revoked with a simple easy to follow process.

A fraction of what you say was correct, but is confusing to anyone not obsessed with detail. You're referring to the period of time in the recent past where clamping on private land had been made illegal, but the strangely titled 'Protection of Freedoms Act' had not yet come into force. The Protection of Freedoms Act for parking on private land appears to mimic the Traffic Management Act (enforced by council CEOs on street and in most council car parks) in tone, but it is actually quite different. With the PoF Act, the motorist can take issue with the amount of money demanded. These firms are cheeky, in that their corres. mimics a PCN that has been issued by a council CEO under TMA (£70 reduced to £40 if you pay quickly. They even play with the initials 'PCN', with the 'P' standing for 'Parking', while most people might be more familiar with the 'P' standing for 'Penalty' - a little piece of bogus officialdom.) They're just trying to make money, with people paying something quickly to get it out of the way. My gf got one of these letters demanding £70. My response was to send them a cheque for four pounds fifty, advising them that the purpose of contract law is not to seek punitive costs from the other party, but that I would reimburse them with out of pocket expenses (£2.50 to get our details from DVLA, £1.00 for their admin. time and postage, and £1.00 for the hour stayed over the 90 minute free period - a nearby car park charges £1.00 an hour). I also enclosed photocopies of the shop receipts that proved that we were entitled to the initial ninety minute free parking. I was keen to add that if our illegal parking had caused genuine distress to them (perhaps because it got in the way of a series of large deliveries, or a large wedding party decided to visit Aldi at that time), then they were to provide details of such distress caused, by return post, within twenty eight days of the receipt of our appeal. I advised them that they were also entitled to take the matter to POPLA, and perhaps the County Court later on. But if nothing was to be heard from them within the next twenty eight days, then we would have to consider the matter closed. I took care to send the appeal by recorded delivery, and checked to make sure that it got there.

So my friend, if you ignore such letters nowadays, you will definitely get a visit from a County Court bailiff, who will kindly take away your worldly wealth, but if you willingly reimburse them for out of pocket expenses, then I'd say, 'case closed'. (Don't forget that it costs two pounds fifty for them to get your details from DVLA). I think it's reasonably simple - you just have to be fair and consider just how much the other part has actually suffered.

And finally why would a council want to bother with PoF Act letters, when they would prefer the meaner TMA variety, where you do have to pay the whole amount, or appeal with very good reasons? The only place I can think of where BHCC does use PoF for enforcement though, is on the land outside their offices at the bottom of Hove Park Villas. Potentially, if you were to park half on the pavement, and half on the private land, you'd get a tickets from both the privately employed council CEO, and the other private firm for parking on the private (albeit council owned) land.

There you have it. Never before has someone said something so simple that deserved such a verbose response, but please fellow motorists, DON'T LET YOURSELVES GET CAUGHT BY SOMETHING SO STUPID.
