A SECURITY guard was furious after being handed a £65 fine for parking on a highway the place the yellow strains are barely seen and there’s no signage.
Furious Frank Georg Mensah found his pink Nissan had been slapped with the penalty after a Sunday out with associates.
Frank, who’s in his mid-60s, mentioned he triple checked the realm and the double yellows on Somerleyton Road in Brixton, south London, appeared to cease at what he was certain was a parking bay.
There was additionally only a single signpost on the opposite aspect of the street stating the restricted hours had been 8.30am to five.30pm Monday to Saturday.
Frank, who was adamant he was protected, mentioned: “It is so deceptive.
“The strains are so pale and there are not any signposts on that aspect of the highway.
“On the left there’s a pay and show signal that claims the restricted hours, however on the appropriate there may be nothing.
“I parked on the appropriate and didn’t pay because the strains regarded like they stopped, there was a bay, and it was a Sunday.
“But all of us obtained tickets. I was shocked, so mad.
“I have made a few mistakes in the past so I always make sure to check the signs and I was sure I would be OK.”
Frank instantly tried to battle the March 27 penalty, which rises to £100 if left unpaid, however his attraction was rejected.
He now needs Lambeth Council, which issued the parking fine, to repaint the highway and erect a transparent signal so different motorists do not get caught out.
“I think it’s unfair,” Frank, who described driving as his “passion”, mentioned.
“I’m doing this all in the name of justice and fairness.”
A spokesperson for Lambeth Council mentioned: “We will further investigate the concerns raised and take any necessary action.”
