I was charged £100 for parking even though I was INSIDE the lines

A DRIVER has told how he was slapped with a £100 fine – despite parking INSIDE the lines.

Reddit user F1shcake has to shell out the sum after letting his car over the curb in the Cheshire Oaks parking lot.

He has posted images of the way he left his car on the social platform and has warned others to make sure they don’t do the same.

The snaps show in the empty parking lot he’s pulled his car far enough forward that the bumper overhangs the footpath – while there’s plenty of room behind.

He kept writing Reddit: “Don’t make the same mistake as me.

“Overhanging the curb in an even abandoned Cheshire Oaks results in a £100 fine.”

He added, “I understand if there’s a wheelchair user who can’t come by … But it feels a little bad when it’s been so incredibly quiet.”

While people agreed it was tough, more users said he deserved the “bad parking” fine.

One person wrote: “I mean he parks like an idiot how would a wheelchair or double stroller get by?”

Another said: “Wouldn’t curb overhang technically count as parking outside of designated bays?

“Nobody has more rights than drivers.”

And a third explained exactly why the rule is important to the police.

They wrote: “That would seriously wreck my dad on his mobility scooter.

“If he tried to get off the curb he’d fall off the scooter, maybe tip it over depending on the angle, and if he tried to back up he’d also come off the curb as he can’t turn his head that much Mirrors cannot be tilted down sufficiently.

“So he would have to wait there for someone to come by.

“He used to get tired of waiting for someone to stop his car from blocking the sidewalk where he couldn’t drive around.

“That little oversight is a whole heap of trouble for someone less able.”
