Adjudicator Stephen Knapp, who has dealt with several appeals at the location, found ‘no stopping’ signs were unclear, there was inadequate warning CCTV was in operation and he had ‘never’ seen a cab using the rank .
Mr Knapp, who said the point of parking restrictions was to improve traffic flow, questioned the need for any restrictions, particularly during the day.
Council spokeswoman Rachel Ashley said the ‘no stopping’ signs were ‘in excess’ of legal requirements and other fines would not be cancelled.
My comment: The photo below appears to support the adjudicators position. There are,
- only two extremely small signs mounted very low down at each end of the bay.
- no cabs in the rank.
|The two signs highlighted with a small blue circle at either end of the rank. Large blue circle shows a close up.|
