Frank, who is in his mid-60s, said he triple checked the area and the double yellows on Somerleyton Road in Brixton, 南 伦敦, seemed to stop at what he was sure was a parking bay.

There was also just a single signpost on the other side of the street stating the restricted hours were 8.30am to 5.30pm Monday to Saturday.

Frank, who was adamant he was safe, 说: “It is so misleading.

The lines are so faded and there are no signposts on that side of the road.

On the left there is a pay and display sign that says the restricted hours, but on the right there is nothing.

I parked on the right and did not pay as the lines looked like they stopped, there was a bay, and it was a Sunday.

But we all got tickets. I was shocked, so mad.

I have made a few mistakes in the past so I always make sure to check the signs and I was sure I would be OK.

Frank immediately tried to fight the March 27 penalty, which rises to £100 if left unpaid, but his appeal was rejected.

He now wants Lambeth Council, which issued the parking fine, to repaint the road and erect a clear sign so other motorists don’t get caught out.

I think it’s unfair,” Frank, who described driving as hispassion”, 说.

I’m doing this all in the name of justice and fairness.

A spokesperson for Lambeth Council said: “We will further investigate the concerns raised and take any necessary action.
