Traffic warden issues ticket despite note explaining owner is isolating

Traffic warden issues ticket despite note explaining owner is isolating.

The owner of the car had left a polite note asking for leniency as they had been forced to
isolate while awaiting the results of a coronavirus test.

A photograph of the note and a penalty note was snapped by a passerby in Haringey, North London, yesterday, who shared it to Twitter.

He captioned the picture: “Traffic wardens….”

The note from the car owner read: “Dear warden, we are back in isolation waiting on CO19 test results. Please do not give us a ticket. Thank you.”

But the plea was ignored, and a ticket was slapped on the windscreen.

Haringey Council was approached for a comment by Sun Online.

In the UK, anyone who thinks they may have coronavirus, have come into contact with anyone who has symptoms, or are told to isolate by Track and Trace, must stay at home.

Until they receive a negative test, they must isolate for two weeks or face a fine of up to £10,000.
