traffic wardens

obviously writing this is a way of avoiding revision but most people do it as well!
I was disgusted today that whilst in chatham high street with my dad (yes i do realise it is the original home of the chav and it does haunt me everytime i go there but it is my local high street!) we got a car parking ticket. now i am all for it, people who don't pay for their tickets should get punished for it, but for being 3 minutes over the ticket time? that warden must have stood by our car and waited until he could put that ticket on my dad's car. Where has the slight bit of human understanding gone? 3 minutes is just ridiculous!

    hardly any wardens get commission – I think there is one authority in the whole country who do it

    Wardens dont get commission, wardens dont wait till they can book some poor unsuspecting driver, wardens do use common sense and they sleep very well knowing they`ve done a days honest work, instead of being a poncing freeloading whats in it for me signing on got no job got no life lay about ,if however the person booked is a hard working honest person 7 outta 10 times a comprimise can be agreed failing that a unfortunate lesson learnt.(wardens take more abuse than a police man would tolerate before arresting the abuser, just by trying to enforce the local traffic laws that YOUR council who YOU voted in have created) Who`s really to blame….......... grow up be a man or at least an adult.

    They don’t get commission.

    That’s a feable excuse the media use to sell papers etc. They do it to satisfy the boss so they don’t get sacked!

    “Give me thirty tickets or else!”

    I’m married to someone who use to do the job so I know what I’m talking about. Ever since private companies became involved then profits became an issue. Before you blame the poor parking attendent I think you should consider why they are forced to work like this. This is rip off “Great Britain” rearing it’s ugly head again.

    I witnessed a female driver verbally abusing a female parking attendant just because the attendant had tried to explain to her that she could have issued a parking ticket because the driver was taking up two bays in a busy car park. The attendant was just trying to be helpful but the driver was a typical essex girl in her Chelsea tractor and had no intension of listening. When the attendant walked away, in disgust,she continued shouting at her. WHY?
    She had’nt been given a ticket although she deserved it. Its no surprise that the parking attendants get fed up trying to treat people with respect when they get none in return. These people are doing a very difficult job and are in the front line for loads of abuse. They help out in traffic situations,with finding lost children, doing first aid but get no thanks for it, just a yearly salary. No commision, no perks,working weekends , bank holidays and sometimes till very late at night.

    I agree with moneypenny. I was a Parking Attrendant, I found purses, lost dogs gave first aid. Not a lot of thanks. I blame the press. Some hacks tractor from fleet street gets a ticket, it’s ruined his day, so it’s posion pen city.

    I’ve just had a “punishment ticket” for sounding my horn at a TA who was obstructing the road. He also threatened to “slap up my face”

    The only evidence this cretin had was my VRM yet he was able to process the PCN as issued. I’m now being pursued for a contravention I didn’t commit! The allegation is pure fiction, a preconceived dirty tricks ploy made by the attendant to give his contemporaneous notes the credence of validity by placing my vehicle elsewhere at a later date or time.

    And they want to give these lowlifes more powers, God help us all

    My disabled grand daughter was parked outside her university with disabled badge displayed and went out after three hours to alter the time. when she came out after lectures she found a ticket. She called the council and asked why they had ticketed her when she had displayed her badge. She was told it was a mistake but non the less she was changed with the full £60. They sent a photograph which showed that the attendant had places the ticket over the badge and the photo was so poor that it wouldn’t have shown up anyway. When she protested she was virtually called a liar. Either they do get commission or they have a quota. She had previously forgotten her badge and hoped they would let her off and had to pay £60 for that as well as they will not let you pay the reduced amount and then appeal.
