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!

Correct Gary, Luckily the ticket office gave me a break.
