Man with Crohn’s fined £70 for using disabled bay to make emergency toilet stop

PIC BY DAN ROWLANDS/MERCURY PRESS (PICTURED: JORDAN HAYAEE, 25) A Crohnís sufferer says he was slapped with a £70 parking ticket for stopping in a disabled bay for TWO MINUTES when he pulled over for an emergency toilet stop. Jordan Hayaee, from Burnley, Lancashire, claims that as he returned to his car a warden approached his vehicle, issued a ticket and threw it at him despite him explaining his condition. The dad of two was driving through the town centre last month (Nov 29) when he suddenly felt the overwhelming need to use the loo. He could not spot any spaces and, for fear of soiling himself, pulled into one of several empty disabled parking bays and ran to the nearby McDonaldís. SEE MERCURY COPY

A man with Crohn’s says he was given a parking ticket for stopping in a disabled bay when he pulled over for an emergency toilet stop.

Jordan Hayaee, from Burnley, Lancashire, claims that as he returned to his car after only two minutes to find a warden had approached his vehicle.

Despite explaining the severity of his condition, the warden issued a ticket.

The dad of two was driving through the town centre on Nov 29 when he suddenly felt the overwhelming need to use the loo.

He couldn’t find any spaces and in fear of soiling himself, pulled into one of several empty disabled parking bays and ran to the nearby McDonald’s.

Jordan, 25, said: ‘I tried to explain to the warden that I had Crohn’s and had only been there for a couple of minutes but he didn’t acknowledge me which annoyed me.

‘He just said “you don’t have a blue badge”. I tried to explain that not every disability was visible and got into my car to show him my medication card, but he just repeated that I didn’t have a blue badge and started issuing a notice.

 

‘I understand he was doing his job but it was completely unnecessary to give me a £70 fine when my ticket states I was there two minutes.’

The ticket, issued by Lancashire County Council, was given for parking in a disabled parking place without a disabled person’s badge from 09.24am to 09.26m on Manchester Road.

Jordan has had Crohn’s since 2012 and says that when he’s had to make an emergency stop before wardens have shown discretion when he’s explained the situation.

Jordan, whose mum also suffers with the condition, said each morning he’s woken between 5am and 6am with terrible stomach ache which lasts for up to five hours.

His condition is so severe he’s been unable to hold down a job.

Paul Riley from Lancashire Parking Services said: ‘We are unable to comment on specific cases. We have a clear statutory appeal process for anyone who feels that their PCN hasn’t been correctly issued.’
