  1. OK thanks for your responses - thought I would just double check
  2. Hi I was issued a penalty fare notice for not having a valid ticket on a train. I gave the inspector my personal details (I didn't have any ID on me) but when I have checked the notice later on, the date of birth they have put down is incorrect. They didn't ask me to check any details when they gave me the notice. I have read the Railways (Penalty Fares) Regulations 2018 and am particularly interested around the Appeals procedure under section 16. Specifically s.16(3)(b) whereby it states: "The grounds on which an appeal under this regulation may be made are that...the appellant is not the person liable for the payment of the penalty fare" Considering that the notice is not strictly for me - as its not my DOB - would this meet the condition under s16(3)(b)? In any case, it is worth an appeal on this basis?
  3. Another letter received in the post today: Acting on behalf of the claimant and they have been instructed to commence legal action, as I have failed to settle debts or provide valid reason for non payment. They refer to the practice direction for pre action conduct under the civil procedure rules and in particular para 4 of the same which concerns the court's powers to impose sanctions for any failure to comply. It then asks for payment within 14 days or write back saying; my full account of the circumstances that have led to the charges and should include confirmation as to who the driver(s) of the vehicle were at the time of each incident and a current address. It states unless a satisfactory response is provided, we are instructed to start proceedings against you without any further notice in order to recovery the amounts due and costs associated with recovery of them. Advice would be appreciated - is it time to just reiterate the facts. fine sent to the keeper too late? or anything else?
  4. OK thanks - sorry was just double checking that was all. thank you for your help
  5. So would you say just to ignore it for now? or to respond to them with a letter?
  6. It says due to the absence of payment or valid appeal, our client (PWE) has instructed us to recover the total amount due to them as above.As all other attempts have failed, our client may instruct us to take legal action against you in the County Court. It then asks me to make the payment, or write regarding my proposals in respect of the debt. It then details potential additional costs if it went to court and they won - it amounts to over £200
  7. Update from last year - now received a solicitors letter threatening legal proceedings unless I pay £100. Any advice? Ignore? Respond? Who to contact?
  8. @ericsbrother - you responded to a query of mine on here, called 'Park With Ease' I was wondering whether you could help me out as I do not want to post in that thread at the moment. I cannot PM you. Sorry for posting in this thread.
  9. Thanks a lot - I have literally copied what you have said and added in dates, details etc - what do you think their next step will be?
  10. Received another letter from PWE, I am sure it is pretty standard. Headed "Parking Charge - Remains Unpaid" It then threatens legal action if not paid within 14 days of the letter. And then gives details on how to appeal. Following on from my post's above I would appreciate some advice on how best to proceed. Thanks
  11. Thanks for the reply. No I did not identify the driver - I literally put what I had in italics in my original post, bar an introduction saying that I appeal the decision. Would you respond? If so, how would you do so? Ask them to think why the think they have followed the requirement under the POFA 2012?
  12. Hi all I have been reading this forum to try and get some advice for appealing a penalty notice I received for parking in a car park in the Lake District by Park With Ease. I did park in the car park, but the machine was not working and we had no internet access in order to make the payment within the next 48 hours. I parked in the car park on 11 September 2014 but did not receive the 'Penalty charge -Notice to Keeper' letter until 8 October. I have read threads on this forum and seemed to find the fact that PWE had 14 days in order to issue the penalty to the keeper of the vehicle as they do not know who the driver was. Therefore I sent an email to PWE appealing the penalty stating (after reading other threads on this forum): PWE have therefore misrepresented themselves to the DVLA in obtaining the keeper details as the notice was dated after the 14 day time limit. Therefore, I should be grateful if you would confirm that the penalty is cancelled. If not, I will be complaining to the DVLA that PWE have breached the conditions contained in the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 in obtaining the keeper details. They have now responded saying that I am wrong and they await my complaint to the DVLA as they have complied with all regulations. Now I am not sure if I have not understood the other threads correctly and would appreciate some advice.
