I recently took part in a charity carnival parade and used my motorhome as a support vehichle for people to change in. It was allowed entry onto the road that was closed for the floats to assemble and left on a single yellow line, I couldnt see any restriction signs on lamp post only signs stating road closed 6am - 6 pm. I now find out that manchester city centre only has signs on entry roads stating it is a controlled zone, which is fair enough. Anyway once the parade was complete and we returned to the MH the road had been opened early and i was given a £35 PCN, which is now £70 as I was allowed 14 days from the date the appeal reply letter was served and as I am f***timer and only get my post every few weeks. My main bone of contention is that they say that "even if a road is closed restrictions are still enforceable." ????? Can anyone point me to where I can see this legislation cos I cant find anything . I can hardly afford to eat at the mo never mind pay for parking fines.
