If anything can be learned here, is that your line of complaint may be unsavoury, as an assault in any shape or form in the eyes of the law may be seen as an uncomparable measure of communication.

The dude made a mistake; you got vocal and violent. Had you been more diplomatic, you may have received an apology and reimbursment.. at least that's how I'm reading this.

My apologies if you find my reply not forthcoming to your point of view...

no no problem dude, i tried to be diplomatic and showed him my parking permit and i was quite confident that this would resolve the issue, he got a right attitude with me and started laughing at me, then turned his back on me and the rest is history. he wouldnt even look at my permit and told me id have to contest it, and take a day of work, which he thought was funny. wanker was well out of order.

I hate traffic wardens, parking laws are just a waste of time and they are on comission I am sure.

This happened to my girlfriend, her father said not to pay and let it go all the way to court where you turn up with your parking permit and the local press.

Get lock stock and two smoking barrells mate that might make you feel better

Traffic wardens now should take photos of why they are giving the ticket. You really should not have got violent because now you have no chance of appealing against the ticket, you should have walked away when you started to see red i know its hard to walk away. You always have the right to appeal against a ticket so getting violent has cost you more.

Problem is that once the ticket is written, the warden can do fuck all. You'll have to appeal through the correct procedure. And you probably would have won.

But he was a twat, and could have told you this in a civil way.

And you shouldn't have got agressive.

Two wrongs, hmm...

mate of mine kept parking outside his house at night so it was under a street light but was on yellows,but got up every morning and moved it, a warden spotted this and came past at 7.30 to ticket him
this happened a couple of times till my mate lost it and kicked his moped over,went to court and the judge let him off as the warden was being an over zelous twat :D

I know in Bristol they are no longer employed by the local council, but are farmed out to a private firm, who has to make a profit. the council pays them so much a year so they have to make more than that for it to be viable for them to be employed next year, sucks but its true. I did hear a rumour that they were on performance related pay, but that came up after one of the little Hitlers got a bit over zealous and issued 200 tickets on a bank holiday Monday (idiot).

just as an FYI: there's a world of difference between traffic wardens and parking attendants

thinking they're the same is like calling a copper a security guard

parking attendants are badly paid, it's a last resort job and they have but one function... issuing tickets... they are in general idiots... and they cannot tell you to 'move on' :lol:

traffic wardens work with the police, are well paid and tend not to want to issue tickets... it's seriously unwise to get into a barney with one of them... they're all married to or good mates with coppers, not to mention their radios go through to police control room... and they can tell you to 'move on' :lol: :lol:

and out her they mark the time on your tyres so they know how long you been there, so you roll back two metres and get another two hours ;-)
