  1. I don't understand how it works, surely they must have to see & keep evidence of ownership of the vehicle? I thought they keep the V5 in P.x for the loan? That's what sent them scuttling for the drains in my case, proof of my uninterrupted ownership. I imagined they had a different fraudulent version in their hands, giving them what they thought was proof of ownership. Sadly I'll never know.
  2. Hi Mally Nothing,......... ..... in my experience, my post from 2008 http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?169820-False-Claim-to-Title-! Still rankles with me, I suspect a stolen V5 was used to defraud LBL (there were issues with "disappeared" log books (V5) at the DVLA around that time. My last communication regarding it was months later. from my local trading standards office wanting permission to pass on the details to another T.S. branch local to LBL. These companies don't even have the morals of a sewer rat, they want their money irres
  3. That's not what I understand, it would seem he is amongst the most experienced in dealing with such issues & not someone merely picked at random. Perhaps the reason why he deals with such matters & the reason he needed to see the farce for himself as he couldn't understand the amount of appeals? Even the glorious leader would agree with him "Council leader James Alexander has requested an internal review of both schemes, saying the way they have been carried out is not good enough" How long did he need to realise that? &"Mr Knapp’s judgement said it was “unacceptable” that th
  4. I would expect Due Diligence from people holding such responsible positions and it to be one of the first considerations in implementing this experiment. After all if it's not legitimate then it can't have a future in it's present form. It's a sheer extravagant and irresponsible use of Council tax payers funds.
  5. Interesting remarks on Radio York this morning (Jonathan Cowap 09-00/1200 - no link yet as program currently on) Nick Freeman (Mr Loophole) contributing. If I understood correctly it was stated the fines will not be rescinded AND the prohibition will continue as they take legal advice. Huh, might have been a good idea to do that before they instigated it. So now they're using a JCB rather than a shovel to dig the hole they're disappearing in to.
  6. Interesting behind the scenes details! http://www.yorkpress.co.uk/news/11041085.Lendal_Bridge_secrets_revealed/?ref=var_0
  7. Latest, the only reason for successful appeals is due to staff shortageshttp://www.yorkpress.co.uk/news/11003076.Lendal_Bridge_income_hits___1_3m__new_stats_reveal___10_000_have_appealed_and_most_have_won___Fresh_row_over_signs/
  8. I have heard a similar tale to the letter in the press above, Local lends her daughter the car fully aware of the prohibition times, passes over Lendal Bridge at 5-04 receives a PCN timed at 4-53..........So therefore car clock must be incorrect ...........but it isn't? Unless it gained 11 minutes & then by magic corrected itself.I wonder if there may be an issue with the monitoring equipment?
  9. City of York Council leader James Alexander is in the Hotseat to answer your questions..........Friday 31st Jan. Over ½ of the Leaders Q/A session devoted to Lendal farce, some interesting contributions. Starts @ 01:03:50 Seven days left to listen. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01ph6vs And what appears to be another cancellation of a PCN possibly a timing malfunction? http://www.yorkpress.co.uk/features/readersletters/10977979.Bridge_ban_video/
  10. Another road in the centre that has caused similar problems, now attracted attention of the adjudicator, not before time.http://www.yorkpress.co.uk/news/10969508.Traffic_watchdog_to_visit_York_over_fines_furore/?ref=mr
  11. Local Press update- PCN's issued between Nov 11th to Dec 2nd http://www.yorkpress.co.uk/news/10905833.8_500_more_fined_for_crossing_Lendal_Bridge/
  12. Perhaps the gates are beginning to open?http://www.yorkpress.co.uk/news/10873046.Almost_1_700_Lendal_Bridge_fines_waived/ This mornings latest.
  13. Thought you may be interested in this ! http://m.yorkpress.co.uk/news/10866583.Lendal_Bridge_and_Coppergate_fines_waived/ Would appear reading the comments there are new Matrix signs installed.....and may be flawed too !!!!!! 11:51am Tue 10 Dec 13 The new matrix sign next to the statue at the end of Leeman Road is ridiculous. It says Lendal bridge closed, 1030 am to 5 pm Then a massive flashing arrow pointing you into the lane that takes you over Lendal Bridge. Which numptys are in charge here. You are sending them deliberately over the bridge. Not
  14. iirc They just had the standard reply to that - There is a fair procedure - etc etc.My point was by changing yet again it's an admission the signs are / were inadequete but probably means a possible lengthy and expensive process to prove it.
  15. Aaaah.. apologies didn't have time to read every post wanted to promote the Radio York interview.Could be yet another loss of Council tax payers money
