Last year I got a parking fine but I had already paid.
I always take a picture of the ticket inside the windscreen but when I got back to the car it had blown upside down and slightly out of full view.
I challenged the fine but was told I have to pay. I emailed a copy of my pictured ticket and said I would fight....and win....the challenge on the basis of fairness and that I had paid and I was looking forward to court date. A polite letter informed me the charge would be cancelled.
Funnily enough I saw the traffic warden in that car park last week....not sure if it was actually same guy....and reminded him I have 15 minutes over my paid time now in law. He said "10 minutes". I said "minimum" and if he charged me for those 5 minutes it would be going against the newly established fair parking code. "Ok" he said. ....ha ha. I have had some fun n games with parking guys
so good luck Jo
