Parking warden caught flouting parking rules
THIS parking warden should be issuing herself a ticket.
An eagle-eye resident caught the North Essex Parking Partnership warden flouting the very law she is employed to enforce.
The car pulled up on double yellow lines, close to a corner, in St Peter’s Street, on Monday night.
David Eade, Claudius Court resident, snapped a picture of the offence.
He said: “Luckily for her, it looks like she'd ran out of blank parking tickets by the time she returned to her car."
Under the law wardens are allowed to park on double yellow lines, but only when there are no legal spots available.
A North Essex Parking Partnership Spokesman said: “We will remind staff of details of this exemption for future reference.”
