Ticket machine faults

Our pay and display machines are maintained regularly, however technical issues are sometimes unavoidable.

If you park at a location where the ticket machine is not working, please follow these steps:

1. Check for other ticket machines - often each car park or on-street area will have more than one ticket machine, if there is another ticket machine within the parking area you must attempt to purchase a pay and display ticket from it.

2. Call 0845 600 6400 to report the fault - if you can, please report the fault giving a fault description where possible and the location and ticket machine number.

3. If you have not been able to buy a ticket from a different machine please place a note on your vehicle dashboard so that it is clearly visible to our Civil Enforcement Officers, stating that the ticket machine was out of order and the time of your arrival. If you have reported the fault please also state this on the note.

You may receive a Penalty Charge Notice if a Civil Enforcement Officer observes your vehicle without a valid pay and display ticket, following these steps may help prevent this.
