Parking fine tossed due to sign goof 因標示不清而免繳違停罰款


A British city could be forced to repay drivers for parking fines after a ticketed man pointed out that a bus lane sign lacked the word "only".


Derek Brocklehurst successfully argued to have the Manchester City Council toss a $43 ticket for parking in the bus lane after he pointed out that the sign allowing buses, bicycles and black cabs to use the lane did not include the word "only," the Daily Mail reported Monday.


Brocklehurst said he has helped 20 people escape similar fines for parking in the same area before the sign was corrected in March, and he is urging anyone else fined during the erroneous sign’s tenure to come forward and demand their money back.


"I have helped a number of other drivers do the same thing, and have printed off a standard letter available to anyone else who got a notice of fine before the sign was changed, to challenge it," he said.
