  2. Afternoon all, I’ve received a ‘formal debt recovery notification’ letter from some outfit called Credit Limits International (CLI), asking me to make payment for a debt owed to the ‘Corpo Di Polizia Municipale Di Firenze’, with regards to the Italian Highway Code. I’m unsure as to what the debt is for - I’ve not received any notice prior to this. It does, however, have a ‘Car reference’ that appears to be a number plate. All I can think of is that my wife and I hired a car during the summer of 2015 - when we got married (!) - in Florence, and perhaps it refers to that (the car was returned to the car hire company without an issue, so I can only surmise I must have committed a speed or driving offence without realising). This is the first time I’ve received a debt collection letter and I’m unsure what to do next. If there was a genuine offence then, as annoying as that is, fair enough - but I’m a tad peeved my first notice is a letter that mentions an ‘enforceable order’ in Italy and ‘prosecution in this country’, plus asks me to cover payment of several high costs - not just the ‘infraction amount’, but also interest, legal and collection costs, bringing the total to almost £400. Any next steps would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks!

  4. Dear Forum members, I would like to ask you if you could kindly help me draft the best POPLA appeal that I can in regards to the NTK I received from UKPC? Appeal sent as the Keeper of the Vehicle on the following grounds and asked for further information: 1. Equalities Act 2010 compliance (have sent them proof of disability for an occupant of the vehicle) 2. Parking Charge amount claim grounds 3. Asking them to give a breakdown of their actual loss. Is the charge a true reflection of damages? 4. Their status – the creditor? 5. Ownership of premises? 6. Contractual Authority (as required by BPA Ltd AOS CoP B.7) 7. Signage There was no admission on who was driving and that is stated in the appeal letter to UKPC clearly as well. UKPC Rejection of the Appeal: Their reasoning for rejection of my appeal was (verbatim): Disabled parking bays are reserved for Blue Badge holders only and that a valid disabled badge must be clearly displayed at all times. They have not addressed any other issues or points of appeal at all. I have also downloaded the photos they hold on file for my vehicle and they are all silly and also show how inadequate their signs are as they are absolutely unreadable. I have included in this document (further down on following pages) the following: • Copy of the photos UKPC has on their online system for the vehicle at the location • Copy of the photos I have taken subsequently visiting the site to check for signage • UKPC Notice to Keeper copy (personal info scribbled out) • My letter of appeal to UKPC as the owner of the vehicle (personal info scribbled out) • Copy of the UKPC Rejection of Appeal letter to me (personal info scribbled out) Could you please assist me with making the best possible POPLA appeal for this case? Thank you ALL for sharing your time and knowledge so selflessly!!! Below is the summary as per your guide and I have also attached full PDF document with photos and copies of letters etc (redacted for personal details): please answer the following questions. 1 Date of the infringement: 18/11/2018 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date]: 19/12/2018 3 Date received: 24/12/2018 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [y/n?] YES 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? YES (copy in the attached PDF) 6 Have you appealed? {y/n?] post up your appeal] YES (details in the attached PDF) Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up: YES (details in the attached PDF) 7 Who is the parking company?: UKPC (ukparkingcontrol.com) 8. Where exactly [carpark name and town]: Great Western Industrial Estate, Southall UB2 4SD PDF case copies for the Forum to ask for POPLA appeal help.pdf
  5. Hello everyone Unfortunately, my husband has gone and got himself another PCN. This time it's one that was stuck on his car I haven't seen any photos of the situation yet - I think they will be uploaded tomorrow at the earliest as he only received the PCN today. I was trying to upload the pdf but this website says that I have the incorrect file extension Is anyone able to help me understand what I've done wrong? I tried following the instructions about uploading files. Thanks
  6. Hi everyone, hope someone may be able to help. On Thursday 20th July around 11pm we parked in a bay, alongside a few other cars. (We have parked before so were aware of the bay regulations 9-5 Mon-Fri 4 hr no return 4 hr). Part of the bay was cordoned off with red barriers, but no barriers where we parked. On Friday morning at 8.30am returned to car to find a PCN with code 21 (observed 8:06am-8:08am). Looked for a sign only to find one partially obscured by branches from a tree and attached to a lamp post not the existing parking regulation sign, was attached with cable ties and had twisted round slightly and therefore was clearly visible in the dark. On inspection of the sign it states that 'bays o/s 47-49 Addington St' are affected, I'm going to assume that o/s means outside. The erected red barriers are outside of those flat numbers numbers and we were parked further along the bay in front of a wall to a car park. Can anyone help as to whether we have a good case for appeal against this PCN. Can't seem to attach any photos. Many thanks.
  7. Yesterday in the House of Commons, Sir Greg Knight's Private Members Bill entitled: Parking (Code of Practice) Bill received its 2nd reading. The support that he received was overwhelming (and thoroughly deserved) and the Bill now passes to the Committee stage. Rougue private parking operators have cause for concern. Yesterdays debate is worthy of reading: https://www.theyworkforyou.com/debat...ailiff#g1160.0
  8. i'm asking on behalf of a friend who is a wheelchair user and had to attend homerton hospital for her daughters appointment. they drove around looking for a BB parking space and couldn't find one and as the appointment time was nearing they parked on St Barnabas Terrace. they are newham council residents and and unfortunately hackney council seem to follow different rules, in newham they can park in resident only bays etc with a BB. they did not realise that they can not park in the business permit holders only bay with a BB and i know ignorance is not a defence but this was the first time they had ever travelled to hackney to attend a hospital appointment at homerton hospital. there were only 2 bays which they could see for BB holders and they were in use and being in an unfamiliar area they did know where else to look for valid parking. just wanting to know do they have any chance at appeal or not, thank you very much.
  9. Hi, can someone advise whether the signs advising of a clearway should be clearly visible in the photographic evidence provided??? I just had a pcn, I was parked (engine running) for moments on a verge, in front of a clearway sign, but not after it. the sign is not in the photo plus all double yellow lines are all broken. does the clearway start AFTER the sign or infront of it too? my car was stopped directly in front of a sign but not after it
  10. I bought a EE PAYGO simcard this week, topped up with £10 on Monday, the next day I rang EE to transfer my existing number with another provider over to EE, which they happly took. Once my number was ported to EE on Tuesday, the next day I saw a better cheaper deal with another network, rang EE on Wednesday to request a PAC code to leave, I was told to ring back today, which I did. I requested a PAC code and was asked how much I had topped up. I told them £10 on Monday, EE said thats not the correct information on their system I explained I bought the simcard, topped up with £10, then the next day I ported my number over to EE. EE said that does not match what they have on their system. I logged into my online EE a/c and saw for 6 Oct/6 Nov 2 amounts of top ups in made in the a/c, which I could never have done (as was not even with EE and only ported my number this week to EE) for over £100 each in Oct/Nov. My available credit was showing as 1pence, after I had used it up to ring EE. How these 2 amounts of £100 plus top ups that were done in Oct/Nov for £100 plus are showing in my a/c I have no idea. Have EE somehow mixed up my data with another customer? I rang EE spoke to a guy, who asked how much I topped up and what card I used, provided the information he tells me, thats not what he can see on his system, I explained I bought the card this week, topped up £10, the next day after topping up I requested a PAC code to leave, was told to ring back after 2 days, which I did. EE guy point blank refused to provide PAC code, told me my a/c had been locked because I 'provided the wrong information', at this stage I was livid, all I was asking for was a PAC code. EE guy told me to go with ID to an EE store and ask them to provide access to my EE a/c, then ring EE again to go through security. I was cut off by the EE guy, rang again, got through to another EE guy who was even more aggressive towards me. I asked to speak to his team leader, who was the same. I explained the situation, the team leader said, the bank statement will not show to which number the £10 top was made to, so that was not valid, when I said I would email it him, after he asked to see it, then changed his mind. I requested the EE team leader listen to the call I made a day before requesting a PAC code, being asked how much I topped up (£10) and by which method, which I correctly answered and was told to ring back the next day (which is today). EE team leader said, you need to show ID at EE store, then ask the store to give access to your account, then ring us and we can try to give your PAC code. I was boiling at this point and refused his request, telling him, why should I take my ID to an EE store when I've only this week, ported my number to EE, topped up £10 and now requesting simply a PAC code to leave. EE team leader said he would not discuss the acc with me, because I provided the wrong information, I asked him how on earth were 2 top ups in Oct/Nov showing in my a/c for over £100 each, when I only topped up £10 this week, then ported my number the next day, then asked for a PAC code to leave EE when I found a cheaper deal. Please please can anyone with experience please help me. That number is over 10 years old and I have no intention to lose it because of a mistake by EE. How on earth are 2 top ups made in Oct/Nov for over £100 each are showing in my acc, when I was not even with EE. think they had made a big mistake somewhere and mixed my details up with some? Please help, I have been crying after the terrible aggresssive attitude of EE and they demanding I take ID to EE store, they were talking to me like I was a criminal:sad: EE have refused point blank to discuss my a/c and even explain how on earth those 2 top ups for over £100 in Oct/Nov are showing in my a/c, they talked to me like I was a criminal, all I called for was a PAC code, I provided correct information. Could an EE employee I could have spoken to have done this to my acc, to make it look dodgy somehow? Because I asked to leave the same week?
  11. I have today received a code 27 PCN for parking adjacent next to a dropped footway This does not appear to be a valid code. I was parked next to a chained/locked walled entrance to a small parking area (2 cars ) of private business. This area is never used and is seperate from the main car entrance. The entrance exits directly onto the road/carriageway. There is no footway, pavement or similar at all. Do I have a valid appeal? I have also read that the CEO can only issue the PCN if an official complaint/request has been made by the owner of said property and that complete records must be made of the request? Thanks in advance.
  12. Hi I got a PCN code 40 for parking in a disabled persons bay which i did not know was there as you will see from uploaded pictures the bay was not clearly marked, i challenged the ticket and lancashire county council disagreed and have refused the request to cancel the ticket, i explained that i would never knowingly park in a disabled bay and that the road marking are barely visible, it as fell on deaf ears and a notice to owner is to be sent. the council said that the road markings dont need to be there as a post sign was there this was 2 spaces down i did not see this sign at the time or even notice the markings, any help. Thanks pixs .pdf

  14. Hello I live in a cul-de-sac and my house is the last house on the road and I have my own drive at end. Today, I received a PCN code 62 while parked on my own Drive. It states 'Parked with one or more wheels on or over a footpath or any part of a road other than a carriageway'. My car was parked with the back wheels just on the edge of the footpath, something I have been doing since 1988 but for some reason I have received a parking ticket today. The footpath ends at my house, although a neighbour whose garden backs onto my drive has put a small gate in his fence so he can leave his house from the back. What can I do in this instance as I will have problems parking on my drive in future? With the back wheels close to footpath, the back of the car stands over the footpath by a foot or more depending on the car that is parked. I would appreciate any help or suggestions
  15. I would like some information and clarity regarding the tax code 0T-M1. My employment ended on 17th May 2017 after being on sick leave for more than 3 years. I'm currently in receipt of ESA (contributions- based) and PIP. I was advised that my entitlement is 12 weeks' notice pay and 1 1/2 years A/L pay - is this right? Received a P45 last week which shows the tax code as being 0T-M1, which I have never seen before, and I have noticed that nearly half of the total notice pay, has been deducted for income tax. Is this correct? Seems a very excessive amount! Confused angelsx7and9 I would greatly appreciated the Caggers help on this matter
  16. Hey guys, Looking for a bit of help. Got this parking ticket while dropping my daughters medicine off to nursery. I was literally in and out. I have checked the signs and road markings, I don't think I have grounds to appeal on those. My only saving grace might be the fact that the ticket was issued at 9.50 am and it was observed from 9.50 to 9.50. I know some councils have an observation period but I couldn't find anything relating to this on Havering councils website. I found some in Camden council (3 minutes) and Brighton council (5 minutes). Could anyone give me some advice whether I have any grounds to appeal this? Many thanks, Bogyo79
  17. Good morning, In need of advice/direction My road has now been converted into residents parking zone Monday - Sunday 8am - 6.30pm----very excessive, but its done so ho home. I have a permit for my road. On the day of the offence yes my vehicle was parked at 9.03am, because i had just returned from dropping my 2 boys to school and had to pick up some pots to drop off to my mother who lives in Grays/Essex...about 20 minutes drive on the A13 from my house. went to my mums but didn't stay long. On the way back home my daughter complained of tummy ache (infact she mentioned it earlier in the morning, but I ignored her she has said it before). I was only about 5 minutes (10.15am) from my home after leaving my mums, and I could smell n awful stench my daughter poo's herself. I drove into my road from the main road and the space I parked in earlier the only closest space i could see, i parked there as I was panicking to get my daughter out of the car to get her soiled self inside to bath to clean her up. Once all done, I came downstairs to take her car seat out to wash it, and noticed I had a ticket. I have attached a copy of the ticket received and the sign, Id be really grateful if i could get some help to articulate a letter to newham council
  18. On the week-end of 2-3 June 2017, I parked on Cowley Place. One of my friends gave me the visitors pass for MN, but I did not realise it had a different zone than I usually use.(EO). I did have visitor parking permits, which I displayed and validated. Clearly there was no intent to evade payment or gain any advantage and I indeed have used/invalidated two visitor passes. I therefore feel it is unfair to be fined, and lose the use of two visitors passes. I also question whether the correct contravention code was used on the PCN. (30 - Parked longer than permitted). Shouldn’t the correct code be 19 - Parked in a residents’ or shared use parking place or zone either displaying an invalid permit or voucher or pay & display ticket, or after the expiry of paid for time. In my case I was in a shared use zone, displaying an invalid permit. Guidelines say Code 19 is used when a driver has made some attempt to park correctly and is displaying something that could have been used. Additionally, The Civil Enforcement of Parking Contraventions (England) Representations and Appeals Regulations 2007 states that any PCN issued should legally contain the following information : (3)(2) (b)(ii)but that, if a notice to owner is served notwithstanding those representations, representations against the penalty charge must be made in the form and manner and at the time specified in the notice to owner. I cannot see any clear reference to point 3 (2) (ii) anywhere on the PCN. It is insufficient to say that the owner must follow the instructions on the NtO, it must be outlined on the PCN. This means that the council has not complied with the Regulations made under the Traffic Management Act 2004 (TMA) or the relevant regulations. Am I correct in these 3 points, which make a sucessful appeal likely ??

  20. Hello, on Saturday evening i thought i'd give the Mrs a break and take us all to a restaurant in Bromley, we arrived and parked at 18:50. Looking at the signs it was a bit confusing i went to check the hours of operation also attached everything looked fine and i was happy that i managed to find parking on a busy evening. The restaurant was really busy and they told us we only have an hour as they have further reservations, we sat down to eat knowing we will be back just after 20:00, but that's besides the point. I am really surprised to be getting a ticket outside of the operation hours, and the 5 mins max stay just doesn't add up. I am appealing just need a bit of help please Regards fro
  21. Hi hope you can help A friend of mine works as a seemstress she is Bulgarian & employs a few members of staff to help her in her busy shop. All her employees work as self employed. In October 2015 she employed a woman who doesnt speak English who lives with her daughter who speaks adequate English. My friend asked this person many times to provide her with her tax & NI number so that she could register her for tax. Cut a long story short she refused to give it to her eventually resulting in my friend refusing to pay her the last months wages until she supplied her with the necessary information required. Apparently this women does not want to give her the necessary information because she lives with her daughter who is getting benefits (housing benefit & child benefits) & these benefits will be reduced if the income is declared. Does anyone have any ideas what to do here
  22.

  23. Parked on double yellow lines (no kerb markings) outside restaurant this morning approx 5.45am. When I came out after making delivery I had a PCN on my delivery van. According to two men I spoke to parked across the road, it was a mobile enforcement car with the CEO getting out and taking pictures then sped off. I have just googled nearby signage and it is a small yellow plaque with a small controlled zone circle and times midnight - 8am & 6.30pm - midnight. Also has picture of a bus and a lorry with 5T on it. Can someone kindly confirm what signage instructs apart from no waiting / parking during times shown. Thank-you
  24. Lambeth Council issued PCN on 21/9 for Contravention 622 Vehicle was parked on clients private driveway with consent, its a new van and was backed up tight to the clients house, the client had moved his vehicle to the street as he had permit. The van/vehicles front 2 wheels were just on the footpath, there was no obstruction to the footpath and a double buggy could easily get past, it was also a wide foot path. 622 does state with one or two wheels on any part on an urban road other than a carriageway (foot way parking) ((partly on foot way). Do i have a case to contest as the vehicle was 99% on private driveway with its nose and front wheels just on the pavement. There is no clear intention to breach the traffic management act just a vehicle slightly to large for the driveway. Thank you.
  25. Hi I received a PCN code and description 31 entering and stopping in box junction. I received 2 photos showing the back wheels of my car just inside the junction box and another with a vehicle infront of me. I appealed against this informing them that when i entered the box there was enough room for me to move forward without stopping in the box however the vehicle infront of me stopped due to the traffic lights turning red which made me to stop directly behind it with my back wheels just inside the box. I was not blocking any vehicle turning right. The car infront me had enough to move forward which would have avoided me to stop in the box but he choose not to. My appeal was rejected and i now received 4 photos showing images of my car. The first photo of my car not entering the box unit it was clear . The time was 13.10.15 . The second picture my car entering the box as the traffic was moving . The time was 13.10.26. The third picture showing my car stopped just inside the box . The time 13.10.35 this was when the traffic light turned red. The fourth picture my car moving forward leaving the box. The time 13.11.03. The letter stated that having considered my representation in accordance with the requirements of schedule 1 of the London Local Authority and Transport for London Act 2003 I should pay the charge or submit an appeal to the independent Adjudicator. Can anyone please advise. I know that i only stopped because of the lights turning red. I have attached the CCTV footage of what was sent to me. PNC Photo.pdf
