    Traffic Wardens are *******s. They stand there - waiting for your ticket to expire.
    They have to go round in pairs in some areas of Manchester . . . .

    That sounds a bit unfair can you appeal? As much as I hate people parking ilegaly and I think they should be shot in this case it seems the traffic warden was a bit unfair.

    I suppose from their point of view they are doing just doing their job and they don't know the circumstances. My dad got done on Christmas Eve once for parking slightly on a yellow line and he was cuasing no obstruction. It turned out that copper was known in the police to be a twit.

    Talk about making money of the poor, a lot of people might not physicaly have the money to pay so would have to wait a few weeks to save up for it.

    I suppose you should always pay for extra time, its like today I had an interview in Liverpool the tickets were more if I came back after 4:00 so I had to get those tickets, even though I got home at got the 1:22 train. If I was delayed and had to get the train after 4:00 my ticket would have been worthless.
