On A498 near Pen Y Gwyrd Hotel
OK, I admit I was at fault but myself and loads of other vehicles have subsidised the Welsh economy at the weekend, so they can carry on ejoying free presciptions
Vehicles were parked on both sides of the road just down the road the Pen Y Pass turning. There is are some areas prepared for parking and then other areas are just verges
Beware - this is actually a clear way, so if you decide to risk it then make sure ALL four wheels are OFF the tarmac. There is a white line, but I did not see any Clearway road signs in the area, in fairness I didnt look, I copied what others were doing. (Except Milly who sensibly parked on the other side, as far off the road as possible.
I can only assume this regular money spinning excercise will continue, as long as muppets like me dont look for ourselves.
Crossing the white line to park will see you fined, whether all your wheels are off the road or not.
There's a stretch of road from Fox House to Surprise View in Derbyshire where people were "stung" but now there's little signs stating it's an offense.

There weren't white lines, but there were clearway signs. I was right off the road which is probably why I got away with it (I think I was in Gwynedd).
On the way home I had a quick look and didnt see the Clearway - Street view (Google) showed the white lines.
I have learnt a lesson from you
JKG- thanks, but it was my own fault really and the first I have had in 20 years.So can live with it
I was in Coniston 2 weeks ago,all the car parks have changed to private companies.
installed number plate recognition cameras and charge from £1.80 for an hour
all have to pay including disable users.
I think car parks in national parks should be free
or if you have to pay then a day ticket to cover all carparks in within the national park

That should be interesting with my car when I take it over to the UK
4 digits, silver on black. Confuses the hell out of ANPR.
Not that I would avoid paying my dues of course!
When I was on my ML in March we were warned by the assessors about parking near the P.Y.G. Hotel
I got nabbed for parking even though I was well off the tarmac. On querying that, I had a written reply stating chapter and verse to the effect that a No Parking restriction applies from the centre line of the road (whether marked or not) to the outer edge of the carriageway (which need not be marked) and therefore include adjacent verges and paths.
Some parking charges really sting - makes you wonder whether the car park owners shouldn't include vandalism and theft insurance in with the parking fee.
I think car parks in national parks should be turned back into fields!

I don't mind paying if the money goes to the upkeep of the national park.
