  1. Quick update on this. I have been chasing this tco several times but have still never received a copy of the documentation. That said, on the most recent call, they did decide to cancel the ticket as a 'goodwill gesture'. Whilst it doesn't answer the question it is a good outcome on the ticket. Can anyone recommend any good reading on the status of these markings. In particular, I'm confused as to the single yellow line, and its meaning. In Sutton, ALL other single yellow lines have the same restrictions of Mon-Sat 08:00-18:30, and none have double blips. Every other location with double
  2. Thanks for the reply. I will ask for a copy of the Traffic Order for this stretch first thing on Monday. The no loading at any time and the turn off engine while waiting signs were in place on the day. Also, as mentioned above, the yellow blips are more evident now than in the google image. The single yellow line has been in place all of the 10 years i've lived here, with vehicles parking along that stretch of yellow line all of that time during the 'apparently' unrestricted time.
  3. The car was parked directly outside the Betfred / 'Lesna Chata' shops. The empty pole at that location (and in these pictures) has since had added to it the signs mentioned above ('No loading at any time' and 'turn off engine when waiting'). The blips which are extremely faded in the google images have been repainted, though now more visible have already started fading, not enough to be an issue. Everything else appears to be the same as now. There are yellow restricted time signs, within 100m along the road, both before and after this point. As with all other single yellow signs in sutto
  4. I live on the High Street in the London Borough of Sutton. Recently a visitor received a PCN while parked on the single yellow line outside my house shortly before 8pm. All the nearest (under 100m) yellow control signs for single yellows nearby show restricted times of Mon-Sat 08:00 to 18:30, however there is not a yellow sign directly at this location. Seeing the single yellow line, and the time, my visitor thought parking would be fine. At the location there is also double yellow blips, controlled by a No Loading sign. To compound the confusion, at this location there is
  5. Thanks guys. Will send a quick letter today as suggested.
  6. Not stayed in touch with developments over the last few months so have been 'ignoring' a PPC invoice since December. This morning I arrived home after a few days away to find a 'Letter Before Claim' from Premier Solicitors in relation to this dated 29May. Argh ! The 14day clock running seems to indicate that my response needs to be back with them by Friday (12th) unfortunately i'm off to Germany Sunday early until Thursday. Horrible feeling I might have to settle which goes against every fibre of my being. - £110 grrrrrr Could anyone offer some advice please pl
  7. Great, thanks for the advice, will post updates as i get them. Hate those damn camera cars.!!!!
  8. My girlfriend has just received a 'charge certificate' in the post from Sutton council in relation to a PCN that was apparently issued on 03/01/15 with a Notice to Owner apparently sent out on 07/01/15. The 'notice to owner' was certainly never received so we've had no opportunity to pay at either the discounted or full rate, this letter apparently adding a further 50% to the charge making a total of £165.00. There appears to be no option to appeal or make representations, this seems completely unfair. Sutton operates camera cars, i'm assuming the ticket was issued by them.
  9. A few weeks ago my car was parked on a residential road overnight, during the night the car was severely scratched with keys on all 4 sides (bonnet, boot, drivers and passenger sides) causing approximately £2000 of damage. I reported the incident to the police, who sent officers out to take a look and log the incident. 4 days later I received a call to let me know they would be making enquiries, knocking on doors, looking for witnesses and for any cctv. The following day I received a letter (dated 2 days prior to the call) saying there was very little that could be done so the case wou
  10. I understand the 'excuses' given by the majority of mobile companies for the high rates charged for roaming in other countries, the main one being that other companies charge punitive rates to use their networks. However, as the market becomes ever more globalised and with the constant mergers and acquisitions of the various companies, we see a company such as Vodafone in particular, with a footprint in a significant number of countries is effectively punitively charging it's own customers under the guise of 'separate corporate entities', whilst still the majority of functions are und
  11. Excellent, this marks you out clearly as one of the self-righteous people who pick and choose what 'rules' they feel apply to them. Happily I am one of those too, and therefore park directly blocking you in to your bay until I choose to finish my shopping and let you leave, whilst ensuring there is ample space for my 'chavvy' kids to be lifted from their child seats. Look forward to meeting you soon! (I'll bet you're a cyclist too !!!)
  12. To the best of my knowledge most networks and plans still charge to call 0800 numbers, how will this work??
  13. Oops, ah yes, i was reading a few on Brighthouse and then eBay searching for advice, after 4-5 threads i didnt even notice the date !
  14. Why would that make any difference in relation to the DSR. As you rightly point out ebay may be under the banner of an 'auction' site but as i understood it neither Trading Standard nor the DTI recognise the site as genuine auctions for the purposes of protections and are treated as any other normal sale.
