62 – Parked with one or more wheels on a footpath

If you wish to challenge this penalty charge notice (PCN) you must select one of the reasons below.

I have a Blue Badge

If you park where there is a footway parking ban in force, a Blue Badge does not provide any exemption.

You are liable for the Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).

If you pay your PCN within 14 days of the date of your ticket, you pay the lower amount shown on your ticket or letter. If you pay after 14 days, you pay double that amount.

I parked on the pavement to avoid obstructing the road

We do not normally cancel a PCN for this reason.

Pavement or off-road parking is not allowed unless signs say otherwise. Even if you parked there to avoid getting in the way of traffic, you were still not allowed to park there.

The rule about not parking on the pavement or off the road applies 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and is enforced because vehicles:

  • can get in the way of pedestrians, especially blind people or people with prams
  • can damage verges, paving or underground pipes.

You are liable for the Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).

If you pay your PCN within 14 days of the date of your ticket, you pay the lower amount shown on your ticket or letter. If you pay after 14 days, you pay double that amount.

I have been issued 2 PCNs

We may consider your challenge if both Penalty Charge Notices (PCN) were:

  • issued on the same day
  • issued on the same street
  • issued under the same contravention

You will need to provide:

  • your vehicle registration number
  • RG reference number printed on the PCN which was issued the second time

Be aware that you are not guaranteed to have your PCN cancelled as each case is reviewed individually.

Challenge the PCN

Alternatively, if you pay your PCN within 14 days of the date of your ticket, you pay the lower amount shown on your ticket or letter. If you pay after the 14 days, you pay double that amount.

My vehicle has been cloned

If you think that your vehicle has been cloned, you must report this to the police as soon as possible.

We may consider your challenge.

You will need to provide us with evidence that it was not you or your vehicle that was present when the Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) was issued:

  • a colour photo showing the make and model of the vehicle
  • a colour photo showing the vehicle registration number of the vehicle
  • a police crime reference number related to the cloning of your vehicle

Be aware that you are not guaranteed to have your PCN cancelled as each case is reviewed individually.
