Mr Harvey Saunders had a Dash Cam installed after he believed he was being issued unfair parking tickets. The footage was captured on the junction of Queens Road and Newland Avenue in Hull on Wednesday 6th. He claims there were no restrictions when he parked his car there on Wednesday.

He said:

“I returned a few hours later to find my car was suddenly parked in a coned-off no-parking zone and I had a ticket.”

 

The footage was shown to Hull City Council who cancelled the ticket, and gave the following reply.

‘When we need to suspend parking bays temporarily we place portable cones on the road or footpath,’ a spokesman said.

‘Unfortunately, people moving them is not uncommon, as happened in this case which can result in us taking enforcement action.

‘The officer was correct to return the cone to the original location but not to use it as evidence to issue a ticket in this instance.

‘We have contacted the motorist concerned and the ticket will be rescinded.’

If you are interested in purchasing a Dash Cam, we recommend the mulit-award winning Nextbase 402G. This is one of the best Dash Cams on the market in terms of quality and value for money.
