    I have a good relationship with the ones near me
    Not many roads that they actually do around here though
    Just mainly the roads around the hospital where people park to avoid the car park charges

    My neighbourhood is patrolled by some muppet on a moped who tickets you for parking on grass verges, the pavement or whatever else he thinks you've done wrong. I got a ticket on my car for parking with two wheels slightly on the kerb. I didn't pay it though.

    Hi dave the reason i ask is our council have what they call a parking dispensation but they sure dont let any one know about it,a mate of mine told me about it about 6 years ago it allows people like window cleaners to go about their buissiness with out fear of getting a parking fine. i am able to park anywhere i wish excluding loading bays and disabled parking spots, i can even park on double yellows and even park in pay and display car parks for free. it might be worth you guys getting intouch with your councils to see if they do a similar thing

    That's cool mate
    But did you know anyone can park on double yellows for 20 minutes anyway so depends how long the job will take
    They have to put your reg in their machine and then again 20 minutes or more later to be able to ticket you

    I was going to dump 3 roads near Bromley train station, this is a main feeder station into London so really busy. The 3 roads have a permit for owners to stop commuters parking there. When I mentioned to them about stopping doing that road, they chipped in and got me a permit which they renew each year. Thought that was nice of them
