& # 39; I will not relapse & # 39 ;: furious driver slapped with a fine of $ 263 after a shocking blunder from the parking agent blunder for the punishment & # 39; completely & # 39; to fight – because authorities claim to be wrong
- An arrow on a & # 39; not stopping & # 39; sign was painted over to make it seem illegal to park
- The arrow originally pointed to the right, but the vandal also pointed to the left
- After Nikita Kersten returned to her car, she saw the graffiti and a fine of $ 263
- She wrote twice to photos with NSW Revenue, but they claim she has to pay
A provocative woman said she is not afraid to go to court after a $ 263 fine because a gravested & # 39; non-stop & # 39; sign drives rangers to believe she has parked illegally.
Nikita Kersten, 30, parked in front of a relative's house on the NSW Central Coast on June 16, but when she returned to her car an hour later, the arrow of the sign was painted over.
The & # 39; not stopping & # 39; sign in Gosford originally had an arrow pointing to the right, but a sneaky vandal painted over the arrow to also look to the left – causing the & # 39; seemed to be illegal to park both sides of the board.
NSW Revenue maintained the fine, but Mrs. Kersten told Daily Mail Australia that she has received a mountain of support and & # 39; will not fall back & # 39 ;.

Mrs. Kersten's brother has scratched the paint away and returned the sign to its original state – indicating whether white paint or liquid paper was used to make the false arrow to the left
After having sent an email twice to NSW Revenue with photos for the proof of the painted arrow, they refused to give up despite the fact that they recognized clear vandalism.
& # 39; We acknowledge your comments that the sign has been destroyed and contributed to this violation, but we cannot cancel the penalty & # 39 ;, the response said.
"The issuing authority has also reviewed the issue and confirms that the fine has been correctly established and is still applicable."
Mrs. Kersten is now considering contacting Emma McBride, the local member for Dobel, saying she will not stop there – she says she is not afraid to bring the case to court.

& # 39; I hope this does not happen and that it can be resolved earlier, but yes I will go to court if I need it, & # 39; she said.
The customer development manager said the government has a poor priority over their unwillingness to do what is ethical.
& # 39; I feel that someone should stand up and not let them escape with such examples. & # 39;
& # 39; There was a left arrow that was clearly painted, so I was surprised to get the fine. & # 39;
Mrs. Kersten thought that parking inspectors could recognize the graffiti, which appears to be made with white paint or white-out.
She believed that the destroyed arrow of such a poor quality was that NSW Revenue would not continue the fine.
Mrs. Kersten's brother scratched the paint and returned the sign to its original state to prove that it was drawn.
Nikita Kersten emailed the NSW Revenue agency twice, but wrote back that the fine would still exist, despite the fact that they acknowledged the obvious vandalism
