    My question is if any one knows: -

    Can a ticket be issued for not displaying a valid tax disc if parked on private ground/property?

    I received a ticket the other day whilst parked in a short term airport car park, this is privately owned and operated. The ticket is a police fixed penalty ticket. £100.00 fine!

    Any help appreciated.

    This one could run for a while Brian - need the lawyers on it (which I'm not).

    For ref see http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1994/22/section/33

    Whereas it was not actually on a public road at the time, I think the argument will be it was not SORN'd so it has to be displayed.

    Let the arguments commence;)

    Thanks,

    The ticket is being reviewed so fingers crossed. The vehicle was taxed just did not have the Tax disc from the DVLA before I went away. Irony is that in October they are being scrapped.

    Have just read the background elsewhere - think you have a good case for mitigating circumstances. An answer to the legal point would be interesting though. Hope you enjoyed the hol despite the welcome home present.

    Result, I had to email a copy of my tax disc to the central ticket office as proof I had a tax disc, they reviewed the case and cancelled the ticket. :)

    Is this due to your overstay in the US Brian? I'm guessing if you were back on time it would have been displayed proudly!
