Transport for London: Parked more than 50 cm from edge of carriageway


SITUATION

The appellant parked their vehicle more than 50 meters from the edge of the carriageway (known as double parking).


The appellants case to the Enforcement Authority (EA) was the boarding and alighting exemption.

However, within their rejection they did not consider this. The EA just wrote a pile of rubbish and did not consider what the appellant wrote at all.


WHY WAS IT ALLOWED?

The adjudicator found that the EA failed to properly consider the representations made. EA’s are required to consider all representation under regulations.

Therefore there was procedural impropriety.
