    The "should have consulted a lawyer first" thread

    I don't recall ever thinking we needed one before, but this clipping shows I was short-sighted.
    Carly Mackie ignored hundreds of parking tickets for leaving her car at Dundee's Waterfront without a permit, claiming they were unenforceable.

    Ms Mackie said that she had a right to park in the area as she was living there at the time.

    I have tried for several minutes to experience at least some degree of sympathy, but to no effect.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    It's scots law not english law and a civil case to boot. The odd ticket you can ignore since it's not worth their while to pursue. She should have checked though.

    In scotland the only people that can clamp you are the police or the dvla. Private parking management companies cannot clamp you in scotland because when it went to the high court the scots judge ruled it was a form of extortion and therefore illegal - private clampers disappeared overnight. Bet you wish english law was the same.

    Whenever I watch Parking Wars I realize I missed my calling.

    It is the same in English law. Clamping is only allowed by Police or DVLA.

    I'm sure I've seen clamps sold to the English public in Halfords to immobilize their own vehicle.
