just got my second, within the space of two weeks, parking ticket for parking in my own street, a few doors from my own house. £110 per day or a bargain £55 if you pay very quickly.
it's terraced housing, no-one has a drive, you pay for an annual parking permit, which we always do.
i live at #20, have been dimly aware for a while that the council or maybe a utilities company or whoever is digging up a little bit of pavement or fiddling with a parking meter or something outside the very low even house numbers & that a temporary parking restriction consequently applies.
so i've steered well clear of it. noted that on a nearby lamp-post there is a temporary sign - on a lamp post about say 6[' off the ground, roughly at eye level, there's a medium sized bright yellow sign saying somethign about parking restrictons at house numbers 2-4. it'd be better if they left out bollards or something to stop people parking but, hey, i know the score, i always look out for these signs, so fine.
last night, slightly against my better judgement, i parked my car so that the front end was i suppose outside #10, the back end outside #8, though not so far towards #2 as to reach #8's front door - it just slightly overlapped with the 'plot'.
parking ticket this morning. walk back to the sign, eventually clocked that above the one about house numbers 2-4, so at a height of say 8' or so, well above eye level, there's *another* restriction [applying to a slightly different time period, hence a need for two signs] applying to all of house numbers 2-8.
