  1. Well that said, i have upto date tax, insurance, MOT etc, so i am not worried about that and there was no traffic car down the road. It is a well known location for that van, so i should have been more vigilant when approaching, but the question still remains why the officer hurried out the van to take a photo of my vehicle before i passed.
  2. Well, here is the exact van if that helps. A friend took this photo as he works opposite, and was actually photographing the random guy who was talking to the officers. The rear hatch is clearly open when he took this earlier in the day, but when i went past in the evening it was closed...[ATTACH=CONFIG]43307[/ATTACH]
  3. Hi, i have a question because i am a little bit confused as to what happened when i was driving past a mobile speed camera van today. I have seen this van before in the local area and it always parks with the rear facing camera operating out of the back window which opens up and has a lense sticking out. Only, as i was approaching the van, i could see the white windows on the back were closed, as if they had already packed up and ready to go (it was almost 6pm). Then as i was about to go past, one of the officers rapidly jumped out the van and took a photo of my car with a digital camera.
  4. The officer in question has just been round like the Inspector asked him to. When he arrived he asked me how i felt about last night and i said i felt slightly aggreived at the situation. He stated he was just trying to do his job. He then offered me another FPN for £60 like the Inspector said he would. I've bit my tongue and accepted the new FPN. To me this just says that it would never have gone to court anyway, but it's a risk i've decided i cant be bothered to take. I'll pay it within 28 days...
  5. No i was not cautioned. Update is that i have just got off the phone to the area Inspector on duty at the moment, he aplogised for any rude behaviour on the officers behalf, but that any summons will still stand. He has spoken with the officer involved and as it stands he was entitled to give me the FPN and not the optional VDRS. It was down to the officers discretion at the time. He also got the impression i was telling the officer how to do his job, which i was not, i was merely asking why he was not using the VDRS. The inspector said he will have a chat with the officer again and see if he
  6. Hi guys, so i will start from the top, i was pulled over last night by 2 Police officers pretending to serve in the public interest. They said they had stopped me for having an 'undersized' front number plate. Now, i do not dispute the fact my front plate is not regulation size (it is 3/4 size). I did not deny the offence at the time and admited that it was too small. Here is where the fun begins... The officer who seemed to be taking charge then came and nealt down by the open passenger side door and said "i have pulled you over and warned you about this before haven't i" I said "No you
  7. I havent tried personally, but the Clerk who dealt with my Producer has. I went into the Police Station reception today and waited for about 20 minutes while he tried to sort things out. He apologised and said he doesnt know how this could happen. He asked me for my contact number and passed it onto the CPS who were on the line at the time. He said they are 'going to see what they can do' and give me a phone call very soon. As you say, i have a letter of indemnity from my Insurance company arriving tomorrow which should quash all of this anyway. As i'm sure that all they really care about
  8. Yes i chose to produce my documents at my local nearest station, and that is where i went. I asked to see some sort of supervisor yesterday but the clerk at the desk said there wasnt anybody i could talk to! And yes i find it hard to beleive there is no CCTV either, but i had a good look around and she appears to be right, there isnt any cameras on the front of the building or in reception. I will be going back today, as apparently the guy who dealt with my documents is on shift. So i need to hear what he has to say about it and if nessercary get some sort of written statement from him co
  9. Hi everyone, i should probably seek some legal advice for this, but i thought i would try here first. I'm in a very odd situation which has probably never happened to anyone here before. I received a Court Summons today for an offence which i know i did not commit, but in all honesty, i don't know how to prove otherwise. Basically i was given a 7 day Producer after being stopped by the Police back in January 30th 2010. I therefore produced my Insurance documents to the specified Police Station within the given time frame. The guy at the desk took all the nessercary details, i saw him writ
  10. Yea i read the template letters etc, but it a defense which relys on not admitting she was the driver of the car, which seems a little flimsy to me? And, well, that would be a lie?
  11. Hi guys, my girlfreind received a parking ticket today from a company called Devere Parking Services. Now, the offending act was that she was parked in a disabled bay whilst she with-drew some cash from a cash point. Obviously i cant defend her actions, it's not the best of things to do, but she has been issued with a £100 fine by this private company, which seems almost extorsion! The offence was commited on 28th December 2009, which is almost 7 weeks ago now, is there a cut off point for issuing these sort of tickets? Also, is this company likely to
  12. Hi everyone, i have a little issue, well maybe... The story goes that i got a private plate from my parents for Christmas, and i went down the DVLA office about 3 weeks ago and got it assigned to my car, so with immediate effect i swapped the tax and plates over. I tried on several occaisons after then, to inform my insurance company of the change when i got home from work in the evenings, but they never answered the phone, it just kept ringing and ringing, until the office closed. It was within their opening hours and i also tried on a Saturday morning but got no answer either. Afte
  13. So has anyone here actually ignored a PCN from day one, given them no correspondance at all, and received no actual court action or debt collectors from it?
  14. Ok, will do. Just hope my Mother doesnt give in when the next few letters arrive!
  15. Hi, sorry i am new to this, i get the jist of what to do in this situation, but my mother has just received a PCN from 'Civil Enforcement Ltd', to which she was not actually the driver at the time of the alleged breach of an 11minute overstay at KFC, requesting the fee of £120. On a side note: (The post code of the alleged location on the Notice does not exist). Probably a typo, but non the less it is incorrect, and the car has never been parked at such an address. What is my best course of action here, should i send them the standard template letter as found on this forum which rela
