  1. Hi, I wonder if you could give me some advice about a PCN I have received today. Having seen one of your previous responses I have answered the same questions in order to assist below: For PCN's received through the post [ANPR camera capture] please answer the following questions. 1 Date of the infringement 30/12/2018 @ 13:59 (Letter calls this contravention date) 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] Issue Date 15/1/2019 (it says 'posted' ? in brackets at the side of issue date
  2. Hi, I August I went to a local camera shops and brought a Sony camera. In the shop it was advertised at £239, when I went to pay it came up at £279 I asked why this was and was informed that the price advertised was with a £40 cash back that I had to claim back from Sony after 30 days. When the 30 days had passed tried claiming the cash back and the camera was not listed. Spoke to the shop and they are not doing anything about this, sent them a formal complaint saying I was not happy about the service I received and have not heard nothing back. I paid via my credit car

  4. Hi, I am worried to death. Last Thursday 27 September 2018, I became aware that I had not one, but three Notices of Prosecution (NoP) against me for speeding in the same location. They are all SP30s from consecutive days, i.e. 17, 18 and 19 September. Naturally I was shocked and confused by this as I had not seen a camera flash or any police speed van in the area and wasn't aware I was doing anything wrong, just going about my normal everyday commute to the office in line with the regular traffic flow. I went and looked for the camera on the road in question but couldn'
  5. Two questions: A) Has there been a precedent for instances of inconsistent, incorrect or the inappropriate application of variable speed limit policy on a Motorway providing a legal basis to challenge a speeding ticket? For example: 1) Motorway road works have road side speed limit signs stating 60 mph but overhead gantry displaying lower variable speed limit i.e. 30 mph without risk factor justification. The remotely controlled gantry signs do not correspond to conditions on the ground. 2) Motorway road works end and maybe end of road works signs are displayed each side of the
  6. Hi All, Last year Islington Council put a really nasty bus lane * camera at the entrance to the street I parked on.. I thought I had got away without falling foul of it, as I'd used the lane several times prior to a friendly neighbour warning me of its presence, this morning I found that's not the case as my car is currently clamped for 5 outstanding PCNs! I'm not wishing to dispute the PCNs as it's a fair cop and I should have been more aware, but I would like some advice on how to handle Equita today. I called the EA at 07:20 asking for PCN details and explained
  7. Hi. I'm just wondering what the law is regarding having Mobile Speed Camera Vans stationed next to GATSO's. I received a ticket, my fault I was over the limit but was already slowing as I go past the GATSO every day. It's a 70mph dual carriageway which drops to 60 about 500 yards before the camera, then returns to 70 again. There have been no recent incidents here, any reason the Police would do this? Just seems like a way to make money from those passing the '60' signs still just over the limit as they slow down.
  8. Hi Guys, Drove by a mobile speed camera with the dash potentially indicating up to 80 mph (the speed i never exceed in my car). My GPS tells me that 80 on the dash is 77 mph GPS. Do you think I will get an NIP in the post? I know the ACPO guidlines are prosecute at 79 and above, but I am worried the trigger happy police may decide to prosecute for below, like 77! If I do for going 77 in a 70, can I defend it in court? I have a Mini Cooper and it's annoying how the speedo is in increments of 20 MPH! Thanks for letting me know!
  9. Hi all, I purhased a Canon DSLR in April 2012 ago on credit card (which I no longer hold) from Jessops. It has just developed a fault whereby the mode dial does not select the correct shooting mode. Am I covered under the sale of goods act/consumer rights act as it now is? To complicate things, I think Jessops went into administration in 2015, then started trading again? More importantly, I am currently travelling in Central America and Australia for the next 18 months, so need to get this fixed locally (currently Panama City). I have checked my travel insurance pol
  10. Sorry if this is in wrong place but need to help please re Camera I purchased. On July 15th I purchased a Vivitar Digital camera from Asda, it worked fine for a few days, I made sure I got the right SD card for it, it is a SanDisk 16GB The camera decided to show signs of being faulty as it kept coming up saying storage error, then got memory card full! I was not able to use it properly while on holiday ( just got back ), it also does not always take pictures or they appear black! I have to keep taking the battery out and put it back in and it works for a time, what I want
  11. Hi all I have bought fujifilm finepix x90 from Curry's in April. Camera meant to be water resistant up to 15m. I took it on holidays and first day was working fine. Second day as well. On third day I took it for another snorkelling trip.. I went to water first time that day and all was working perfect. I have made another attempt after 1 hour. While I was snorkelling water just suddenly got inside. Camera is damaged fully now when I went to Curry's they said they can't fix it or repair it and told me to contact Fuji. I used camera accordingly to i
  12. On 9 January I took my Fuji bridge camera into a Jessops store to ask about a repair. I paid £25 to get an estimate and my camera was sent to the company which does the repairs on Jessop's behalf. I was told it could take 6-8 weeks for the repair to be done and my camera returned and that if I went ahead with the repair then the £25 would be taken off the total cost but if I decided not to go ahead then I wouldn't get my £25 back. After not hearing anything for about 3 weeks I went into the store to ask and they said that the repairers were still waiting for a price for parts. I eventu
  13. Hi, I was recently travelling South-bound on the M1 and I got snapped at this location; (Unable to post links so co-ordinates are 53.671763, -1.548704) I was travelling at national(70) until I saw the 50 variable pop up, i slowly slowed towards 50 to reach it when i reached the smart displays above me, but I got snapped way before reaching the signs, by the HADECS 3 camera on the right hand side on the opposite side of the moterway on the north-bound side, I was travelling at about 60 during the snap, while still slowing down to 50. But it may of been a coincidence of speeding
  14. Hi All just a general enquiry I was recently travelling back home, when I spoted someone holding what I think was a Hand held speed camera and can only guess it was a video type. The guy holding it was not the police but had some writing on the back of his hi viz Yellow background black writing Has anyone seen these before ? and as it was not a police officer, is it likely that a fine with come through the post at some point if they were speeding?
  15. Can any one explain the LTI2020 laser speeding gun display. I have a photo provided of my vehicle and the display shows the normal date / time / officer ref / speed / distance but under this there are four numbers 01:17:18:18 These are displayed as I've typed them and under the main information shown in the photo. I can't seem to find anywhere what these relate to. Any info appreciated. rgds
  16. I was about to take right turn. There was redlight camera . I crossed the white line while camera was green and then there was one car and motor bike in the front of my car i stoped my car just after the white line and was waiting for right turn but then after that light changed to red behind me I proceeded to turn right as i already had crossed the white line and there wasnt any second signal in the middle of the road so I didn't know if light is red behind me.. My question is as you can see the first yellow arrow signboard i was there and i proceeded to tak
  17. I have just been to drop my son off to school, Shortly after most of the school run had finished. I witness the Private Parking company which our local council employ, Drive thought filming cars, I can only assume they record then check for infringements later. and send out PNC through the post. Is this legal, I only ask because I member a thread a while ago, which I believe they said it was not . The only difference is it was a static camera fitted to a car on a pole.
  18. I have received a notice to identify the driver of a vehicle through the post with an offence date of 25/09/2016, with a date of issue of 26/10/2016. The offence is driving at 79mph on a 60mph single carriageway. The route was an A road in Scotland. The vehicle in question was bought one day prior to the offence (24/09/2016) and thus was not registered to the new keeper. The previous keeper received the NIP/requirement to identify the driver within the statutory time limit (14 days) and was subsequently replied to by the last known registered keeper within the 28 day time limit.
  19. Hi everyone, I was driving last night, i needed to take right turn but stupidly i jumped the red light. I realized when i i came in the middle of the road n then i stoped my car there .

  20. Hi, Firstly thanks for all the help and advice in the past, I have donated previously to help keep this fantastic resource continue it's good work. As the title says I was caught on speed camera on the M25 a few months back, I immediatly pleaded guilty as I knew on that day I was over the speed limit ( I am shocked by the amount though). You will read from my letter below why I was speeding, as I say in the letter it is no defence and completely agree it was wrong, it was the first time in years I had forgot my son's vital medicine, two large mistake's in a day

  23. Hi any of you know anything about Digital cameras please? I have a Fujifilm 14 meg camera, yesterday for some reason the front bit got stuck inside the actual camera, this is the bit that normally comes out when you put the camera on so you can see what you are taking a picture of. I now get the message turn camera off then on again but nothing happens, I can hear it trying to come out but it seems stuck! Does it mean a new camera? I have had no problems with it before this and is a good camera TIA XX Sandy
  24. As an enquirers thread was being diverted I have kicked off this thread to discuss CCTV and BWC. As E Munch has highlighted ICO concerns and DPA on this thread at post# 8 http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?457929-Bristow-and-Sutor-%28Council-Tax%29-threatened-ARREST-if-not-pay-NOW...%282-Viewing%29-nbspdress happens to be right number wrong street I will kick off with the other side of the coin as in an aggressive EA is captured on a debtor's doorstep CCTV trying to intimidate a 14 year old daughter who looks 18, with no other adult present. DPA issues?
  25. Afternoon all. Just a quicky.... Just had a notification regarding the above. The notification arrived at least one month after the alleged offence. Out of interest, how long do the Police have to notify please? I think Ive read somewhere there is a set time limit? Have searched on here but cant seem to find any info on this. Cheers!
