  1. My husbandreversed out of a parking bay at an Esso Petrol station after checking it was safe to do so. A car had been stationary when he checked but started to advance towards him while he was reversing. Hefailed to notice that the other car was now coming towards him because he had his head turned. The insuranceis adamant that he has sole liability for the accident because he was reversing. They said the ’onus of care’ is on the reversing driver and therefore he is liable for the accident. He reversedbecause the other car was NOT moving and surely cannot be held responsible foran accid
  2. to summarize for the avoidance of confusion, do you agreethat: the Hackney Estate is considered private land yet the Coucil has the authority to enforce parking restrictions PROVIDED THE ROAD HAS BEEN LISTED IN THE TRAFFIC ORDER UNDER RTRA 1984 Seciont 32 1(a). Am I correct in thinking that signage is irrelavant since the road/highway restrictions are outlined in the TMO? Need to make a decision whether to pay up now based on the legality of the PCN
  3. and how would I do that? are streets that are recognised as such listed anywhere?

My 14 day are up tomorrow and I would appreciate your feedback.
  6. This document doe not show me where the signs must be. Is there any other way to prove that the road was not a private car park so that we can use the invalid bay marking argument?
  7. Thank you all for your efforts. I have been looking for the TMO online, but only found one relating to roadworks. Does anyone hae a tip on how to find the TMO so that we can check the signs are placed as outlined in the TMO? Thanks PYA
  8. My son received a PCN from Hackney Council for Parking in a permit bay without clearly displaying a valid permit. We challenged the PCN because the parking bays did not comply with the Traffic Signs Manual diagram 1032 or 1028.4 Hackney’s response was : the several Acts you have mentioned would have been applicable for on-street parking contraventions if the highlighted points were valid, however this contravention had occurred whilst the vehicle was parked on off-street estate parking bay and in what is essentially private land / property of Hackney. The contravention is valid and
