A less common "common" fault on all pay and display machines is a faded or unreadable ticket being produced due to either no ink or poor quality paper. Machine failure due to age, vandalism and more importantly poor maintenance is usually to blame. If a faded ticket was produced, appeal but ask for details of
a) when the machine was last maintained
b) when was the machine last serviced
c) when was the paper stock changed - the usual reason for failure
b) age of the machine.
If it is a court claim, then print this page out to show that failure to issue a ticket is a "common fault". This has been taken from a joint Bromsgrove/British Parking Association training guide.
