  1. SUCCESS!!! The Adjudicator directs London Borough of Newham to cancel the Penalty Charge Notice. Adjudicator's Reasons ---------- The appellant's vehicle passed in between two clearly signed 'No Entry' signs. It stopped and reversed. When read in conjunction with the site plan diagram, in particular the area shaded yellow, I am not persuaded that the vehicle contravened Article 3 of the Traffic Management Order. I will therefore allow the appeal. ---------- I think what this means is that simply crossing a 'no entry' sign cannot by itself lead to a fine. Justice!
  2. Thanks. I have logged the appeal with the Parking Adjudicator, will post results here.
  3. So should I go ahead and appeal to Parking Adjudicator? Or i better pay the reduced prices, which I am totally against since this is not a fair charge by any means, shouldn't really happen in a European (hmm) society.
  4. Evening, What a quality football! Got a PCN from Newham council / Temple Mill Lane for 'disobeying no entry restriction' (no entry sign). Never happened to me before! Here is the situation: 1) It's a regular two way street with sudden 'no entry' signs for BUSSES AND CYCLES ONLY (pls see attachment from google maps) 2) The driver driven past the sign for about 7-8 meters BUT then put on reverse gear when it was safe to do so and driven back 3) Upon driving backwards the driver noticed an unmarked vehicle parked on double yellow lines with a camera and a grumpy person inside; obviously filming. 4) Got a PCN. Put together a long appeal and got REJECTION as follows: 1) DRIVER: As can be seen on the video, the driver pulled back when it was safe to do so and to prevent any potential accidents. COUNCIL: We sent you a PCN because our camera evidence shows your vehicle disobeying a 'no entry' restriction. The relevant sign is round, red, and has a horizontal white line across it. 2) DRIVER: There is no prior warning and thus a very strange layout when suddenly the street terminates with 'no entry' signs. COUNCIL: Whilst it is appreciated that sometimes coming up to a no entry restriction can seem sudden to a motorist especially if unfamiliar with the road, it is very clean in this instance that you had lots of time and space to turn around with no other vehicles in site at the time. 3) DRIVER: No safe way to reverse: two way street, cycle lane, busses, and traffic emerging from a car park. Hazardous traffic. COUNCIL: I note you stated there was hazardous traffic, but it should be stated that this does not mean that a motorist can drive through a no entry restriction 4) DRIVER: As per freedom of information act, requested a brakedown on much money they make on that spot, arguing that they prefer to keep it that way to make money rather than put a proper layout in place. COUNCIL: Please direct such requests to the information governance team using the details xxx.... 5) DRIVER: Enforcement officer has been parked on a double yellow line in an unmarked vehicle: does this mean any motorist can park on double yellow lines in the borough? COUNCIL: I note you have stated that the enforcement officers car was parked inappropriately. Please not that whilst our enforcement officers do their best to make sure that there are not causing any inconvenience to others, it can be difficult at times to achieve this to the maximum. However please be assured that our enforcement officers always do their best to avoid any inconvenience whilst enforcing. I disagree with these answers: clearly council is making money here and is not interested in putting things right. And clearly they do this by compromising safety of drivers/pedestrians/cyclists and ignoring the normal rules (unmarked camera vans parked on double yellow lines). Do you think I have good chances of appealing to Parking Adjudicator? How do you suggest to do this? Many thanks PS. On the google screenshot attached another driver is caught with the same 'offence', they are making millions there!!!
  5. SUCCESS!!! Thank you!! OUTGOING: "The signage you refer to is inadequate to form a contract and you have failed to create a keeper liability under the PoFA 2012 by way of your current actions. In addition, the online resource offered as the first contact represents a major violation of the Data Protection Act also since communication is not encrypted and thus personal information could be intercepted and stolen by third parties. Desist from further communication as this will be construed as harassment and dealt with accordingly." INCOMING: "Thank you for your correspondence concerning the above stated PCN. In light of your claims, the representations stated in your appeal have been noted and upheld. We can confirm this Notice has been cancelled in full and no further action will take place on this occasion."
  6. So why don't we actually do referendums on really useful things: looks like there is a lot of unclear and messy stuff in motoring alone. Someone should be responsible for this mess.
  7. dx100uk: I've sent the wording ericsbrother kindly provided. Do you think that counts as an 'appeal'? Are they obliged by law to respond to any correspondence in regards to the PCN?
  8. Just received another letter demanding to pay the full amount since 14 days discount has been passed. They haven't responded to my appeal at all. What to do?
  9. ericsbrother, thanks! i'll try and post the results here.
  10. Bazooka Boo: thanks, attaching the scans! Received a week after parking. Says 'issued to'. dx100uk: thanks, looks like those links are quote old though and this company quotes parking eye v Beavis. IN ADDITION: I only stopped there because there was a huge traffic accident on M4 blocking EVERYTHING and actually there were 2-3 hour queues, almost standing and nowhere else to go/park. So I managed to slip into these services and moved away only after the situation has been resolved on M4. I had no choice really!
  11. Hi, New here, would appreciate a good advice! Received a 'CHARGE NOTICE' from something called CP PLUS limited. The letter states there are BPA member and the postal address is PO BOX 3573, Barnet, EN5 9QA They sent a photo of me going in and out the private car park (that's heston west services to do with costa, travelodge, etc.). They say I overstayed by 50 minutes. They provide a photo of the sign saying that parking charges apply after 2 hours, how to pay post 2 hours and that camera enforcement is in operation. Few questions: 1) Along with phone (03339390104) and address, they also provide a link to appeal: APPEALPCN.CO.UK This looks VERY dodgy, and besides it is an unsecure form. Is this legit at all? 2) I can't see their company website address anywhere, is that normal? Searching cp plus online doesn't give much info either. [problem]? 3) They demand £100 to be reduced to £60 if paid within 14 days. Is that a reasonable charge at all? Any advice? Many thanks
