An NHS worker has condemned the slapping of a “Jobs Worth” parking warden for ticketing her for handling dozens of coveted and flu jobs.
Sandra Chapman, 54, was outraged to learn that when she returned to her Audi in Devon, she was fined for parking outside the marked bay lanes.
Pharmacy technician Sandra stood at the end of a row of spaces, the rear wheel of her car was above the line – along the edge of the grass.
When she was fined 25 25 on October 8, her mother was working six hours a day to give more than 100 jobs to two people.
The fine states that she was not properly parked inside her bay in the overspill car park of the Barnestable Laser Center in Devon.
Sandra said: “When I got back to my car, I received a notice of fine for not parking in lines.
“Not properly parked within a bay or place mark,” the fine notice said.
“It was very frustrating, I was so angry. I just couldn’t believe it.
“It’s absolutely worth the job that he did it, of course. I don’t understand it at all, I didn’t do anything wrong.
“I was just trying to give them enough space to open their doors.”
Sandra, who has worked for the NHS in South Molton, Devon, for 26 years, has appealed the parking fine, which she called “ridiculous.”
He added: “It was really hard work. I was very upset at the beginning. It wasn’t until I read this thing, I was just worried.
“North Devon Council agreed that we could use the overflow car park if we show vouchers.
“I parked the overflow car in the parking lot and placed the voucher on the dashboard. I parked it in a bay along the edge of the grass and another parking bay on the right.
I was just dizzy.
“There was a car in the bay when I parked it over the line, so I put my rear left hand wheel over the line.
“I thought it wouldn’t be a problem because it was the edge of the grass and I wasn’t blocking another bay.
“Unfortunately, when the ticket was issued, the car parked next to me was gone.
“I am deeply disappointed with the North Devon Council thinking it would be acceptable when I am helping the North Devon population stay safe and healthy.”
