True Stories:

1. Missing sign and had disabled badge.

I took my aunt out to dinner about 8pm and parked in a quiet side street. The top part of the road was no parking, and lower part had no restrictions. I looked around for a sign but the one closest to my car was not readable. So I parked, AFTER displaying my aunts Disabled badge.
We came back to this dead empty road.. to find a ticket on my car. Apparently lack of signage is no excuse for not knowing the rules. And the disabled badge.. they just ignored it.

2. Mother of two threatened in Hampstead..

A MOTHER-of-two complained to police after a Camden traffic warden threatened to put her in hospital.

Jane O’Rourke was taking her two children to the doctor in Hampstead, when she spotted a parking attendant putting a ticket on another car.

The car had a resident’s permit but was parked in a bay that had been suspended for house removers to use.

“Somebody else in the street asked the warden to give the guy a break and he replied, ‘what’s it to do with you?’

“I said to him, ‘it’s after 6pm. Clearly the removal van has been and gone and the car has a resident’s permit on it.’

He replied, ‘Do you want a visit to the hospital?’ I said, ‘I’m sorry?’ and he repeated the statement.”
January 2004

3. Blood doner vans ticketed.

In Derby two blood doner vans were ticketed while they were actually in the process of drawing blood from volunteers. They showed the traffic wardens they had written permission to be there to no avail.

4. Traffic warden races lady with walking stick to ticket her car..

My ex-wife has a disabled badge and walks with a stick. She parked on a disabled bay in the West End of London but was not sure if her disabled badge allowed her to park there as it was in the London Borough of Camden.
She looked for a traffic warden to ask them. She told them where she had parked. The traffic warden told her no and then raced to the car with all possible speed to ticket it before she could reach it to move it hobbling along with her stick.

5. A traffic warden waited up all night on Christmas Eve for Santa to visit. .

Reason? She lived in an area where residents parking permits had to be shown and she wanted to put a ticket on Santas sleigh while Santa was delivering presents to her own children!

6. In Edmonton, North London, a Parking Attendant (traffic warden in another guise) booked two Hearses that were loading up! .

I know because I was his supervisor and had to remedy the situation bless him!

7. The Stalker .

I didnt have any change to buy a ticket, so i parked next to a shop jumped out quickly bought something, then when I came back to my car a traffic warden approached it, and started to write a ticket.

I said to him Im just buying a ticket now, but he ignored me and carried on writing the ticket, and I thought hes going to slap one on my screen in a minute, so I jumped in and drove off. And parked in a different road, bought a ticket and carried on with my shopping.

I came back to find the same traffic warden, he had followed me down and was sticking a penatly notice sticker over the place where my parking ticket was displayed!!
I guess he was annoyed that I had escaped his first attempt. Luckily I won the appeal by showing the ticket I bought. The traffic warden tried to fool me by making me think the ticket was from earlier in the other space.

8. Traffic wardens in the village of Hale in Cheshire are writing out tickets in their car or round a corner so that the vehicle owners have no chance to drive off. .

They will patrol a little used taxi rank until the early hours slapping a ticket on every vehicle who pulls up to collect a pre-ordered meal from the take-away opposite. Further horror story to follow once the CPS have made a decision on prosecution.

9. Ticketing a moving vehicle. .

We all no you shouldnt use a mobile whilst driving so when mine rang (I was expecting a call re a sick relative) I pulled over onto a single yellow line put the car into neutral, hand brake on and took the call.

I kept an eye out for wardens.

Now they SHOULD....

(1) Tell me I cant park there
(2) Politely ask me to move
(3) If all else fails write the ticket by the car.

NO! This warden decided to hide around the corner, write the ticket, put it in the envelope, sneak up along side the car (I saw him approaching crouched down in my offside wing mirror)and go to slap the ticket on the screen.

When he appeared I threw my mobile onto the back seat, put it in gear, handbrake off, screach of tyres...

too late. he ran after me (hanging onto the wiper blade) and slapped the ticket on the screen.

Several minutes of verbal abuse from me & other motorists plus 2 appeals still didnt result in the ticket being cancelled

10. TRAFFIC WARDEN CRIES LIKE A BABY!!!! :-) .

On my life this IS 100% TRUE.

I was on my way to a voluntary St John Ambulance duty and was lost. I stopped to look a the map when I noticed a warden (ticket in hand)

"Sorry mate, sorry. Im lost" I said

"No allow park here sir" he replied

"Look I know I shouldnt, Im sorry, but like you Im providing a service to the community - ticket me and you ticket one of your own!"

It was a surreal - slow motion moment as the warden slid down against the wall and slumped against it with his knees up to his chest before bawling...

"PLEEASE!! Dont have go at me boss! Everyone hate me. But Im not a bad man!!!"

So thought for the day... Making a warden cry - how many points?!

11. if any of these stories are true, Ill fuck a warden. .

Come on guys! If you do bend the truth do it a little and add genuine evidence. I hate them, but I also hate unjust slander.

12. A traffic warden called the police immediately when rival schools were fighting .

(where a young boy was stabbed in the arm)
When the schoolkids saw the warden they ran away which may have prevented them attacking the victim any further.
Also I saw a group of wardens tend to a man knocked down by a car & called an ambulance

13. Were Do I begin, Iam Doing a GCSE cource in English -Maths. When I came out of my College,There was a Sign saying DONT MOVE. .

I went back into college to speak to my tutor,Apparently I owe £172.50p.
I have a Disabled Badge.
I was bloody Mad,it Transpires after I had to have a warrent Suspended.
They said I had a Ticket on my Car Last year 2010.
The Date The Paperwork was on my New car was 16-6-11.

They sent all Coresspondence to 8 "Penhill" Rd.Lancing.West Sussex.
I live in 8 "Beverley House" "Penhill" Rd.Lancing West Sussex,

I had to have mitigation,my mitigation is this Stupid Idots cant See Right,There was No Ticket On My Brand Spanking Car back in 2010.
B,startds.
I hate Them Anybody Normal Dose.

14. I asked a warden where I could park on a street outside my girlfriends halls of residence in Cardiff (There were no signs). .

He pointed to a space and told me I could park anywhere on the street if I ever came back.

After I left the car he took a picture of my plates and put my error as "Parked in a permit holders only area".

Today I received a bill for £70.

15. Received ticket while checking parking restriction sign..

I was working for Lambeth council, in Lambeth. never visited the job before and when I finally found it I pulled in about 20 yards from the job, in a bay.

I got out of my van, walked around to the kerbside and read the parking restrictions sign.
the parking was restricted, so I got back in the van and found a space, down a hill about 200 yards away.this space cost me 28 quid for the day.

Two weeks later I get one of those in the post tickets with a photo of the alledged offence for 80 quid.

I logged onto their website. the complete video they had of my vehicle was 26 seconds long, from the time I pulled up kerbside till pulling away again.

Now if they could be bothered to view the video from their dam camera for the rest of the day, they would see me having to struggle up and down the hill carting their lead sheet rolls weighing up to 70 kg to fix their roof, whilst having to wear their stupid health and safety boots hats that only impeed my work.

Now wheres the health and safety in that tell me.
I will not pay the ticket. I will let them waste time and money pursuing it, and will never pay.

16. I had just had my 16 year old dog put to sleep and was on the way home from the vets. .

I was bringing his body home to bury in the garden as he was only a very small dog. I decided I needed a glass of wine to drink to console myself so called in at the local Spar. They have a car park but it was full as it was school turning out time.

I parked in front of the shop as most people do. I was literally in the shop 4 minutes and got a parking ticket.

I explained to the traffic warden my situation and was actually still crying from my loss. He just replied "youve parked on double yellow lines and there is a car park" I told him it was full but to no avail.

17. A traffic warden took a photo of the car while I was crying in the passanger seat .

- I am 17 and havent passed my driving test - I was waiting in the passanger seat and we were on the edge of a double yellow - I apologised and told her my mum would be back soon but she didnt listen , I started crying and she took a picture of me crying as evidence !

18. Cant stand these people and sorry, I have to say I wish theyd all die a horrible and painful death. .

Ive had numerous exchanges with them, when Ive been waiting in a loading bay, or on a double yellow.

Only for a few minutes each time - enough to use a nearby cash machine or pick up/drop off something and theyre like flies on sh*t!

They wait around corners and hang around looking for minor parking misdemeanors which to them, warrant a £60 fine.

One time I was in Manchester centre near the town hall, got out the car to walk up to the machine less than 100 yards away, got ticket and then saw one of them stood next to my car ready to write a ticket! FFS! He sloped off when I got near but I really dont blame the public for getting angry and these people deserve all they get.

If someone threatens to beat you if you issue a ticket, dont issue the ticket simple as. Just dont get beaten up and then whine about it from hospital while doing a very good show of being a victim.

Theyre just ignorant, weak minded little pigs who fully expect their uniform and silly little hand held devices and fine notices will give them a right to be listened to.

This is the 21st century where people really dont care and the plain fact is they dont have any authority.

The public will carry on what theyre doing and if these fools cant give the them a break or wait for 5 minutes before whipping out their little parking fine notices then they will continue to be abused.

19. They all p*ss in the same pot. Here in Redbridge.... .

They all p*ss in the same pot. Here in Redbridge.... they charge for street parking, off-street parking, parking in parks, parking at libraries, parking at Hainault Forest, parking at two "country parks", parking at the town hall after 7.00 pm Monday to Friday and any time on Saturday and Sunday.

The town hall is right opposite the local theatre - whose cash grant has been cut by the council.They tried last year to impose a 7 days a week regime from 7.00 am to 7.00 pm, and to extend the number of small local shopping parades with parking restrictions - so that they too would be pay & display.

They forgot, however, to amend the traffic order in respect of yellow lines so that on Sunday you had to pay to park outside Iceland, but could park legally for free on the yellow line the opposite side of the road obstructing a left-hand turn lane.

It had to be abandoned, of course - about as competent as the Post Office.

20. Yesterday evening I purchased a parking ticket in Old Town Swindon at 6.00 pm and forgot to display it. .

I found it in my had bag less than 10 mind later.
I went straight back to the car park to find my self being issued with a ticket.
I explained the situation and showed the Warden my ticket.
Oh too late he said oh he said pressing a green button on the right hand side of his handset Ill try and cancel it. Oh no its too late its gone through.
Or had it actually gone through, or had he just actually put it through.

21. Traffic warden saw me getting robbed and intervened. .

Saved me really.

22. In the town where I live, the traffic warden was nick-named Hitler. .

Any how one day someone cut his bicycle in half. I wonder why?

23. Oxford traffic Warden tried to run me off the road. .

I was on my bike and didnt see a lady (wearing dark clothes, in the dark) waiting at the zebra crossing, I saw her as I went through.

She hadnt stepped onto the crossing. I said loudly, "Im so sorry!" to her. A traffic warden on a moped who has stopped, starting yelling at me and pursued me up the road, swerving to try and make me fall off my bike, screaming at me.

I yelled that I knew and Id apologized to the woman and he should be watching out for me now. In response, he pulled over and was yelling into his radio "Police Assist" and started describing what I was wearing.

It was bloody terrifying. The man is a Psychopath! OK, I should have stopped for the woman, Im normally quite good, I dont jump lights, go on pavements etc, I made a mistake and I did say sorry to her.

It just feels like he was abusing his power. I had an asthma attack.

24. Cars ticketed after terror attack..

A few weeks ago in 2017 there was a terrorist attack in Central London. Some Muslims had attacked people with knives. The police cordoned off the area and would not allow people to remove their legally parked cars.
The moment the police allowed people back into the area the traffic wardens were there first, ticketing anyone who had been forced to abandon their car.
