Did you know that the law changed recently to help us when parking? We all try to get the best from our parking time but sometimes we get caught out because our watch is not keeping good time or someone distracts us when returning to our car and then we find that a warden has just reached our car in their round and the unthinkable happens. Well now the law requires wardens to permit a ten minute grace period before issuing a ticket. We still need to plan to get back on time but it’s nice to know that we are covered for the unexpected. It should also help to build and maintain a good relationship between those whose job it is to keep our car parks from being abused and those who use them – we are fortunate that those who serve us in Knowle are a friendly bunch – if you are smarting from a recent fine, you may be feeling less charitable about this of course!
