Motorist has car towed while at hospital



A MOTORIST returned from a hospital appointment to find that his car had been towed away after parking in a bay which had an illegible warning

Scott Sawers, 21, even paid for parking in the street in Edinburgh.

But when he returned parking enforcers pointed to road markings on the cobbles which used to say

“solo motorcycle bay.”

Scott has now had to pay 180 to have his car returned despite saying that the markings were illegible.

He said:

“It was really annoying because the markings were not clear at all. There was a car parked next to me which was on the pavement, but the parking officials said they couldn’t do anything about that because it was a police matter.

City council officials insisted that the markings were

“adequate.”
