I have returned from my hols to a lengthy (4 sheets) written reply to my complaint last month about my parking ticket. It seems “The date of the ticket on display was obscured by the windscreen tint.”

Most of the letter then goes on to describe how I can pay the fine – erring on the side of them being in the right I see!  They have included two very attractive photos of my windscreen, not dis-similar to the two I sent them.

Anyway, I think their explanation may be fair enough, although I will double check on my photos.  Now to work out how do I send them the ticket and use it to claim back the expenses from work.  God I wish my life were simpler!
