UK Woman's Fury Over £70 Fine When Staying At Her Brother's House

Plymouth woman's fury over £70 fine when staying at her brother's house
Sarah Smith says parking is a 'nightmare' in Morice Town and the council should do away with planters and introduce extra spaces
A disabled Plymouth woman has been left seething after she was caught out by stringent new parking rules.
Sarah Smith spent the night at her brother's place in Charlotte Street, Morice Town, and left her car parked in a small plot off the main road which she'd regularly used before.
But the 34-year-old woke up on Friday, September 6, to find a penalty charge notice stuck to her car.
Sarah, who suffers with fibromyalgia, was dismayed as she'd displayed her blue badge in the dashboard.
But it transpires the council has rolled out new double yellows in the area in a residents-backed crackdown on visitor parking.
Whilst disabled drivers are allowed to park on the lines, they're only allowed to do so for a maximum of three hours.
But Sarah doesn't think the restrictions are fair because parking pressures in Plymouth - and Morice Town in particular - are too great. And there are no signs in place telling motorists there's been a change in policy.
