  1. Your only hope is asking for discretion on the grounds of well you didn't realise you had to pay online you expected a toll booth, you didn't see any sign of any penalty charge amount and basically it's your first time using this toll bridge and you were unaware of the process,. In the past, for 1st time offence, Merseyflow have responded rejecting the appael but on this one occasion have reduced the penalty to the toll fee. You might be lucky.
  2. Forget about it. Only a council CEO can issue a PCN. A random person taking a photograph is merely trying to frighten you, which they seem to have succeeded!!
  3. + include doc. evidence of your holiday such as booking confirmation, plane tickets etc.
  4. The penalty is £130 at the NtO stage. It only increases to £195 at the Charge Certificate stage
  5. The CPZ restriction times apply to SYL's within that zone and not parking bays, so SYL's do not require their own timeplates. Each parking bay within the zone must have it's own timeplate, even if, as is often the case, the restricted times are the same as the CPZtimes
  6. Having made an informal challenge and been refused, he has 2 choices - pay the discount or wait for the NtO and make formal representations on the grounds of missing/inadequate signage at which point the full penaltyof £130 is in play. The council will almost certainly refuse it. He can then appeal to an adjudicator where if it becomes apparent that he is a resident in the adjoining CPZ and is refusing to buy a resident permit on principle, but is knowingly parking in contravention somewhere else, even with the missing sign I can quite easily see an adjudicator refusing an appeal. If he continues to park there, he's likely to get more pcns, which will end up costing more than £120 a year. But it's his principle and his money. How did the last PCN end up?
  7. Thereis a missing sign : https://goo.gl/maps/j8zgZ6yxujuB6S3o7 although there is a sign round the corner: https://goo.gl/maps/DoUVK3DXMRQ2HU3H7 If your father lives in the area he must be aware of the CPZ and it's restrictions, why does he noot have a resident permit?
  8. Except bottom right 'You are appealing against the offence' , Ground 2: 'Another driver was using the vehicle at the time of the offence' , implies you can transfer liability (at least initially)
  9. I would think that the wording of the original agreement will be crucial and whether it says anything about what happens if you withdraw your consent. After 15 years do you or any of your neighbours still have a copy?
  10. Sadly I think an adjudicator would say that teh no entry was clearly and sufficiently signed. Everything else you say is merely mitigaton and adjudicators generally cannot take mitigation into account. Ironically either of the other two options would not have resulted in a pcn. Discount looks the best coiurse.
  11. It's likely that the CPZ is meant to run from the end of the red route as shown in GSV in 2009 https://goo.gl/maps/T3S4hhop1X72 but by 2012 that sign has disappeared and been replaced by one in the current position https://goo.gl/maps/eFvJhaF5mMH2 which effectively leaves the SYL in no-mans-land without timeplate and not covered by a CPZ
  12. If that were the case the reverse of the CPZ entry sign would also be an entry sign. It's not: https://goo.gl/maps/BFcq3SqFruB2 If you cross Brixton Hill the next CPZ starts at the end on the red route lines in Brixton Water Lane.
  13. I agree, there should be a timeplate for the SYL. It's doubtful that Lambeth will agree, so you need to be prepared to go to adjudication

  16. The debt won''t be registered with TEC until the councl send you the Order for Recovery, At that point you can make a witness statement to TEC that you didn't receive the PCN . The OfR will have details of how to do this.
  17. As long as the drveway is not a shared drive way the following exemption applies:
  18. 1. Yes, normally with a notice of the Traffic Regulation Order in the local paper 2. No DYL's are 24/7 so no sign needed 3. In theory yes, in practice no 4. The TRO should mention the length of the lines
  19.

  21. Absolutely, but without sufficient grounds you are going to have to bite the bullet and pay. If you don't within 14 days of their letter, it will go back up to £165 and will escalate even higher if you're not careful.
  22. Well, you could prove he was lying by producing evidence that you were parked somewhere else, except of course that you can't. It's odd that you question the honesty of a CEO whilst being perfectly prepared to lie yourself.
  23. Yeah, good idea, The council won't cancel the pcn and if you continue the lie to adjudication you open yourslf to a fine of up to £5000.
