In all seriousness though, getting a parking ticket sucks. But there’s a good chance – roughly 50%, in fact – that you’ll have grounds to successfully appeal the fine, and this brilliant guide from MoneySavingExpert explains how to go about it.

And don’t forget that you can avoid the traffic wardens altogether by booking an off-road space in advance next time. Good luck out there.
