PARKING: Who did it hurt at the day's end?

I am employed in the retail trade in Worthing.

I was required to work a night shift at the shop for a re-fit commencing at 6pm on Tuesday, January 27.

I parked in Chandos Road near to my place of work.

Although it was dark, I noted there were no other cars parked in the on-street parking area.

Nor were there any parked there at 6.15am the following day when I left to return home.

This morning when I awoke I found a soggy NCP notice affixed to my windscreen alleging that my car had been observed from 17.44 to 17.50 parked in an approved parking place.

I believe the plate designating the parking restriction period states from 09.00 to 18.00 so technically, the warden was correct.

My point is that these people are not only driving away shoppers from Worthing, they are also attacking the people who would serve them.

Yet another nail in Worthing's coffin for being illegally parked for a whole six minutes?
