  1. Hi All I came back from work yesterday to find that there are double yellow lines outside my council house and around the corner. I assume the council put them there (they look like they've been painted by someone after a heavy liquid lunch) the lines are 55mm wide the the cap between them varies from 30mm to 70mm. As I'm near the end of the terrace, the lines start outside my house, go up the road and around the bend, going up that road. My questions are:- 1) Should the council advertise that the lines are being put there prior to painting 2) Should there be parking restricti
  2. Hello, Would appreciate if someone could help me. I received a PCN for parking in a restricted road in prescribed hours, the road I regularly park down, and is not a restricted zone. However, I noticed after checking my car that I was parked on double yellow lines that were covered in leaves on the ground. The car behind me was not on double yellows and I believe only the front of my car was on the double yellows. These are the pictures of my car. Is it worth appealing? If so what do I say? Thank you!
  3. On 11/05/2018 at 12:36 I was amazed to spot a gap in the red and yellow lines on the hospital perimeter road close to the Willow Annexe which I was visiting for pre surgery assessment. Since I have very troublesome arthritic knees and ankles only having a 200 yd walk was like a gift from the gods. The gap in the lines was twice the size my car would need and I assumed that whoever had been parked there must have just moved. I parked up and went off to my appointment. When I came back, to my astonishment there was a ticket on the windscreen. I took some photos to prove I wa
  4. Hi, What are the regulations for enforcing double yellow lines on private land? clearly they will not have a Traffic Order in place, but can they simply have yellow lines and then red signs up stating "no parking" to make it enforceable. ta
  5. Hi, in my area the council have just painted double lines on one side of my road. The road is fairly narrow, but there was room for people to park close to the wall and other cars could still get past. However, they've now put double yellow lines down the side where people used to park. It dawned on me that I could simply park on the other side of the road, would I be correct in assuming this? Or do the lines apply to both sides? I've been looking everywhere to try to find out this regulation but can't find any info at all. So if any of you know the answer that'd be great. I c
  6. just got notice to keeper from UKPC, ticket issued on 31/12/2016 ntc dated 02/02/2017. Not parked correctly within the markings of the bay or space. I parked in a bay with 2 wheels on the white line not outside but on it, this white line is approx 3 feet wide as its an end bay and the tyres were at least 1 foot away from the white line outside edge. i had to park like this as I could not let my passengers out of the vehicle because the vehicle next to me was very close to the white line so I had restricted access. Whats should be the next move against these muppets.
  7. Hi there. Finished work today and found that when I walked back to my car I had been given a ticket. The place I had parked on had double yellows but I am wondering if there are any grounds for an appeal. The lines were only added about a week or two ago, it isnt like a proper street and looks more of a car park, before these lines it was used as a car park essentially. This is the location on google maps. 52.4119603,-1.5061521 I am posting the information on the ticket as well and am wondering if anything seems incorrect to anyone on here as this is my first ticket ever.
  8. I am asking on behalf of a friend. He has got a NTD for parking on double yellow lines of a road. The road is public accessible so I would assume it is a public highway. He happened to see the employee putting tickets on all cars up the road and apparently he even said it is a public road and he shouldn't park there. He has also got a letter from the council to say he is allowed to park there. It's a new build estate, and as of today, Google street view doesn't show the road. The company on the ticket is "UK Parking Management Ltd" and is defiantly
  9. Hi, Decided to post here as after googling ANPR it seems a lot of people here have relevant experience. Went out Sunday morning to find a ticket on my car. I live on a private road (with what I believe are ANPR signs at regular intervals). The ticket says I was parked on double yellow lines in the early hours. I checked their website and the photo they have as evidence doesn't show my wheel over the line (of course there may be more photos?) - I didn't read the ticket until after I'd driven off but I believe my wheel was actually passed the end of the lines. There are no bay markings
  10. Hello, A friend of mine has approached with their PCN they have received from NCP for not correctly parking within the lines of the space. This is new to me. In my mind how can they make any claim for this, espcially having suffered no loss. Also the car park is poorly maintained and the white lines are in fact just very small T bar at the start of the bay. Can they claim for not parking correctly in a bay? surely this is something to be appealed like all other pcn I cant upload a copy of the PCN at moment, but it is a standard one stating £50 or £100. The car park is the NCP at
  11. Hi I have received a PCN contravention code 01 for parking on double yellow lines as shown in the diagram below, are these lines enforceable i.e. do I appeal or pay? any help appreciated [ATTACH=CONFIG]56692[/ATTACH]
  12. Evening all. I've had an issue with a debt for Capital One and have now had a response to a SAR. On the basis of this I would like to complain with a view to getting charges and/or PPI returned and I'm looking for advice on the best arguments to use. Within the SAR the records show the following: The account was in 'good order' until October 2008, at which point I became unemployed. Although I believe there are calls not listed as an absolute minimum they show that in December 2008 and February 2009 I indicated my employment status and a need to claim
  13. We own a small business that has ISDN lines installed for a number of years - our account is a business account. We use ISDN for clarity because standard PSTN line quality is extremely poor where we are and we often struggle to hear people on the other end. Our ISDN lines are essential for us. 36 days ago our ISDN lines went down. We've had several dates given to us when work will take place only for the work not to happen. We've been given excuse after excuse, promised things will "be escalated", but nothing makes any difference. We've been "looked after" by their so-called
  14. I received a letter today dated 10/03/14 for a parking offence on zigzag lines in January 13th 2014 for me either attend a course or get 3 points and pay £100. Is there a time scale for when I should've received this by since the police officer said to me if I don't hear anything within 14 days then I won't have to worry about anything? I've never had any offences before! Please advise?
  15. Royal Bank of Scotland and Barclays has vowed to axe premium rate customer phone lines after it emerged 73 per cent of financial firms' charge savers extra to ring up with enquires or make a complaint. Consumer watchdog Which? shamed the country's banks, building societies and credit card companies by revealing that 177 out of 242 customer service or complaint lines in the sector were pricey 084 or 087 numbers. Which? added that existing customers were routinely being charged more to call their financial firm, with cheaper or free from landline 0800 numbers
  16. Hi All, I have received a parking charge from Defence Systems for "Stopping in a No Stopping Area" at One Stop Shopping Centre in Perry Barr, Birmingham. I parked in front of incredibly faded double red lines, alongside other vehicles for about 30 seconds back in April and a PCN was issued on 19th August. There is a sign that states "Red Route, No Stopping at Any Time". My main questions are: Can a private company charge me for stopping on a red route? (I was under the impression that would be a council thing) Does the fact that the red lines are incredibly faded count for a
  17. I recently was issued with a parking ticket (pcn council) for parking in a street, which had no visible yellow lines. The area was outside a building sight and any traces of a yellow line, had been cleaned right off, by all the building machinery and materials going in and out of site. Since then however, I have revisited the spot and there is now a plastic temporary sign, tied around a lamppost beside the road where I had parked. To warn people not to park there. How can I best go about appealing this matter? Many thanks Nadia Phillips
  18. [ATTACH=CONFIG]43416[/ATTACH] Does anyone know if a 100mm line can change to a 50mm line and still be legal? The 50mm lines although too wide apart do close up to be 50mm apart.
  19. Hi all, I have a PCN for parking on double yellow lines which are broken. Thats the reason I parked there as as far as I knew this meant they were inactive and certainly advice I've seen on here in the past supported that. When did that change and what is the regulation that says they do have to be continuous and barred at each end? The council recently repainted all DYL's around the town that were broken or worn and painted in all the gaps that had been left where repairs had been made to the road. Some of these were only 1-2 feet! The lines where I parked were not re-painted and are in
  20. Hi, despite personal financial problems I am looking to employ a legal professional for my ET hearing. There are still a number of issues that the respondent has not resolved (missing documents etc) which still need chasing up. Once I have a solicitor can I still continue to chase up the respondent about these pre-hearing issues (at relatively little expense to me) or can the respondent insist on only dealing with my appointed legal representative (at considerable expense to me)?

  23. Banks and energy firms including HSBC, Royal Bank of Scotland and Scottish Power are forcing their customers to use expensive premium phone lines to speak to them, while potential new customers are offered free 0800 phone lines, research by Which? has found. The consumer group said that 27 of the 34 banks, energy companies and insurers that it investigated are luring potential new customers with free phone numbers while existing customers have to pay up to £8 for a 20 minute call on an 0845, 0870 or 0871 number. Further, Which? found that 20 of the companies make their customers call pre
  24. Hi I would like advice please. Received a PCN in November in Coventry, first one ever in 25 years of driving, never intended to park illegally, road is in city centre where they have been doing a lot of roadworks, no yellow lines or kerb markings of any kind down quite a stretch of the road after resurfacing, it's a fairly quiet side road with some university offices, student accommodation and a sports centre and some shops. So I parked there for an hour while I was at a lecture (I am a student). Came back to find a PCN, contravention (02) for parking or loading in a restricted stre
