|"He said he had called his boss at Serco, who told him one of them was breaking the law because it was parked more than 50cm from the kerb."|
The key issue is not the distance from the kerb but the distance from "the edge of the carriageway", which in a cul-de-sac includes both the kerbs and the end of the road, a wall in the case of Hearne Road. If the car was parked within 50cm of the wall, a PCN claiming a code 26 contravention ("Parked ... more than 50cm from the edge of the carriageway ...") should be cancelled on appeal.
If that was the situation, the driver should appeal, saying that the car was within 50cm of the wall marking the edge of the carriageway at the end of Hearne Road.
Relevant adjudicator decision: London Tribunals (ex-PATAS) case ref 2070469651 (2007).
