  1. Hello I got a bus lane fine that dates back to over 12 months ago however, I didn’t receive the original fine from the council. This is because I moved address and the DVLA didn’t update my address when I changed my log book. This has caused me other issues for example, I got a fine for not taxing my car. I got the year old fine through the door which has now been passed to Jacobs and it’s now £180. I called them to advise it’s the first I heard of it but I will pay it in instalments. They bates something like £58 a month and I said I checked my outgoings and I can afford £37. They declined this I said I’ll pay £37 every month anyhow. To date I have made 2 payments of £37 and was due to make another on Friday on payday. I’ve come home to a letter hand delivered saying removal within 24 hours and the balance is £336! I called Jacobs and they said although I’m making payments , they didn’t agree to the payment plan. I rang the guy that delivered the note and asked him if he’s going to break in and he said he didn’t say that. The way I envisaged it going was to a judge and a judge would see it as unfair that I didn’t get the original £30 fine, I’m paying what I can afford. From what I’ve read they can’t force entry. I just don’t want to keep paying £37 and then the £336 keeps rising. My friend has suggested that I pay off what is left of the £180 and speak to the council to see if they can ask Jacobs to back off now. Please help
