  1. dx thank you for suggestion, have tried this, not having any success, my local repair shop believe it is a software problem affected by a graphics failure caused by over heating. Replacement laptop on its way. Did not buy new as I do not want Windows 10! Staying with a 12 month warrantied (for what it's worth) refurbished unit running Windows 7 pro. Also paid by credit card for protection.
  2. ParkingBill2018 thank you for pointing out my typo. I am struggling at the moment as the screen on my laptop has failed and until I have the replacement, I have connected a 10 metre HDMI cable to my television to act as a monitor. Unfortunately it is not showing full screen and my eyesight is not too good at the moment. As for the 'regulator, the DVLA can call them what they want, unless parliament APPOINT them, they are not regulators, but as previously mentioned, boys clubs set up paid for and run by the member PPC's and in the case of the IPC, Will and John of Gladstones.
  3. The BPA and IPC are NOT regulators. They are clubs to which Private Parking Companies belong and pay for the running. They don't have bars to serve drinks, but by pulling the wool over the eyes of the DVLA (and the parliamentary sub committee who formulated the POFA in 2015, they create a benefit to the members by allowing them electronic access to Registered Keeper details.
  4. You really need to read other threads on the subject of Private Parking so that you understand the process . They require planning permission for their signs. If they are small enough to not require PP, they are too small for the POFA.
  5. Except that unless ReasonableRon is a qualified lawyer, solicitor or barrister, his is just another opinion. He is omitting to acknowledge that the 30 day right to reject is different to the 'reverse onus' that he mentions. What is 'it is common knowledge?' Likewise you consistently fail to add a citation (King12345 has pointed to the law, but you fail to follow through) which has been several times asked of you.
  6. Verso owner, you do realize that ringing the Consumer Helpline is a bit of a lottery? The 'advisers' are well meaning volunteers who may or may not have any real understanding of the law about which they are giving advice! You need to make an appointment with them to have a chance of getting advice from a solicitor who again may or may not have an expertise with the CRA 2015 There have been many instances on this forum when Citizens Advice (who run Consumer helpline) got things wrong in law - private parking springs to mind. Lawgistics may claim to be the UK's No1 motoring lawyers but as that claim is directed at the motor trade who purchase a subscription from them, as dx (and before him Christine Keeler) said 'well they would, wouldn't they'.
  7. Having read the thread, I personally would reply to the insurance company pointing out that the major collision occurred BEFORE your minor touch, not afterwards and that either the clip holders were damaged in that collision, or were sufficiently weakened that your subsequent touch, which ordinarily would have had no deleterious effect resulted in that prior damage becoming evident. As such you do not feel responsible and would be pleased to defend any court action that they take.
  8. Before certain regulars have apoplexy, this is not a fine!. Unfortunately many people, including most of the media call these speculative invoices 'fines' which tends to wrongly legitamize them. Only a court has the power to fine anyone. Please answer the following to enable advice specific to your situation:- For a windscreen ticket (Notice To Driver) please answer the following questions.... 1 The date of infringement? 2 Have you yet appealed to the parking company yet? [Y/N?] if you have then please post up whatever you sent and how you sent it and the date you sent it, suitably redacted. [as a PDF- follow the upload guide has there been a response? please post it up as well, suitably redacted. [as a PDF- follow the upload guide] If you haven't appealed yet - ,......... have you received a Notice To Keeper? (NTK) [must be received by you between 29-56 days] what date is on it Did the NTK provide photographic evidence? 3 Did the NTK mention Schedule 4 of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 (PoFA) [Y/N?] 4 If you appealed after receiving the NTK, did the parking company give you any information regarding the further appeals process? [it is well known that parking companies will reject any appeal whatever the circumstances] 5 Who is the parking company? 6. where exactly [Carpark name and town] did you park? .............................
  9. Put the letter away and get on with your life. Follow the advice of ericsbrother and Mrs O'Frog. You have a complete answer to any potention court claim if they pursue you as you were not the driver and they have not complied with POFA2012 to create Registered Keeper liability. These lowlife PPC's rely on 'worrier' victims such as yourself who read their letters without seeing the errors that they make. dx100 can be a bit brusque in his replies but is nonetheless correct.
  10. May I firstly wish your daughter a speedy recovery? It is important to remove, as far as possible, the emotion that such an incident naturally invokes. As no doubt the police attended and will be making their enquiries which will revolve around the cause of the incident, hopefully their forensic examination will support her claim of total brake failure. You should not approach the vehicle supplier until you are in possession of this information, as even reasonable traders may become reticent in the face of accusations of supplying a dangerous vehicle. If no report is available from the police, you will need to arrange one yourself through your/her insurance company who you should inform straightaway. NB whilst typing this reply I have been notified of your second post, which rather proves my second paragraph above!
  11. Have you sent them a Letter Before Claim? Unfortunately the thread is too long to read back to check! It may well be that this is what your friend has suggested with a 14 day deadline, in which case it is good advice as the protocol requires this pre-action indication.
  12. benny46 you should post your update into this, your original thread rather than start another. I cannot see your recent letter, but assuming it is from a Debt Collection Agency, you can ignore. DO NOT ignore a Letter Before Claim.
  13. The County Court Service offers mediation as a means of saving the court's time if it is possible to come to an arrangement. It does NOT take place after the claim has gone to court, but once it has been allocated to the Small Claims track by the TEC.. The Directions Questionaire, which is sent out as part of the notification Pack, has a box to tick if agreeing to mediation. By the way, is it possible for a member of the site team to alter the title to 'siezed engine' as that is what I think the OP means as the problem.
  14. The £45 'for something else' will be the Victim Support surcharge, 10% of the fine. It was brought in several years ago to fund the charity that helps victims of crime. There will also be up to 3 points added to his licence for each offence.
