Default Beware parking illegally in Ealing

Seems ealing are cracking down on people parking on yellow lines - now
you get a ticket AND get towed as I found out the hard way this
morning. 250 quid to get it back.

Yup. Though I wasn't even parked on the road itself , I'd parked on a
raised section of tarmac next to the road which then in turn adjoins a
normal pavement. I thought it would be fine there since I wasn't
causing an obstruction to traffic or pedestrians. Obviously not. Oh
well, you live and learn...

If you knowingly break the Law and create obstructions and danger for
others why should you expect to get off lightly?

They haven't put the yellow paint down just because they happened to
have a couple of buckets left.


I'm not complaining about getting done. I parked illegally , I
literally paid the price, lesson learnt, won't be parking there again.
It was just a warning to others that ealing arn't messing around any
more.

on Thu, 19 Mar 2009, remarked:
In London no parking is allowed anywhere on the pavement whether or
not restrictions apply to the carriageway, unless signs specfically
permit it.


In Cambridge too. In both cases the statement is a general one and there
are exceptions.


Like this, perhaps:

But maybe you are about to tell me the thing the taxi's parked on isn't
even "pavement" (like the similar bit outside Sainsburys)??

The signs show that it's a loading bay, i.e. not "pavement".

That does look illegal. It's curious that the number plate hasn't been
obscured!
