One of a series of genuine search engine enquiries which successfully brought visitors to the Ministry.  Can I help?

parking fine invalid if yellow line not terminated

You may be technically correct (I don't know for sure), but I'd strongly recommend not relying on that as a defence.

In a recent case which made the local free newspapers, someone tried to contest parking tickets by arguing that the yellow lines were worn and not properly terminated (it was a coastal road, and the lines had been weathered). However, the magistrate(s) rejected the claim on the basis that there could be no reasonable doubt about the intent; pedantic, wilful misinterpretation of the patently-obvious was not acceptable.

Which itself could be contested, I suppose, but just move the car, eh?
