There were three cases that the motorist won which were of interest.
1. Someone was not parked but only reversing, the adjudicator could see brake lights in the photos.
2. A motorist paid £7.20 to park but used the wrong bay code. A PCN was given for code 16 "Parked in a permit space or zone without clearly displaying a valid permit" which is clearly not the contravention that was committed, so the PCN was cancelled.
3. A workman was delivering tools (for which of course there won't be any paperwork which usually freaks the council out, their inability to double check what a motorist says) and my experience is that workmen can't manage with just a bicycle, hammer and screwdriver these days. The PCN was cancelled. The workman must have been a clear and truthful witness.
