Westminster Common Sense Parking?

At the end of January Westminster council announced a series of long overdue common sense parking measures aimed at no longer using parking enforcement as a money-making measure.

The new common sense measures included:

- White disabled badge holders now have a month to renew their expired permits.
- Five minute allowance for resident permit holders on single yellow lines.
- Resident permit holders can park in a suspended bay within their own zone for 2 days before being given a ticket.

Unfortunately it now appears that Westminster parking wardens have also adopted a new approach to issuing tickets which wasn't mentioned back in January, namely placing out of order signs on parking meters only to then remove these signs and issue a ticket once motorists have parked there.
