  1. Hi all, Wondered if anyone could help. I recently purchased a new vehicle and had driven over Waterloo Bridge during the congestion charge times forgot that the vehicle was not registered on CC autopay after driving my previous vehicle for so long which had been registered on autopay for a long time. I received no warning letters nor a bill for the congestion charge simply a £65 PCN straight away. I understand I messed up by forgetting to set up the autopay on the new car but obviously not everyone is on top of their game 24/7. Is there any way around this o
  2. Wondering if one of the experienced users on here can help here with this one? Yesterday afternoon I found my car clamped by Marstons Bailiffs - no paperwork whatsoever only a scribble and phone number so I phoned them to find out that apparently I failed to pay the congestion charge in November last year but know nothing about it as they send all paperwork to a previous address even though I updated my address with the DVLA in 2017!!! Then the bailiff stopped answering any of calls when I tried to ask her about PCN information etc and the TEC phonelines were not being answered yest
  3. Hi , re Congestion Charge non payment. On the 13OCtober 2016 when the closure of Tower Bridge was in place I just realised , upon receiving a PCN today, that I had entered the congestion charge via liverpool street station while according to TFL that was not the correct diverted route. I was genuinely and truly sure it was. Funny enough the PCN came 1 month after it all had happened when memories are toally faded away and I was sure there was some sort diversion sign directing me through that CC area . Eventually a small yellow sign that barely a motorist cou
  4. Hi all This is my first post and feeling pretty stressed My background , well was working in oil and gas for the last 20 years until i was laid off in October 2015 and only just started work again (first payday on 28th Oct) all my savings gone on bills but now behind on council talk and Mortgage but payment plans in place with them. I also have a step change management plan in place While i was unemployed i tried to claim on benefits but was turned down as not payed enough National Insurance this year !! My wife received a letter through the door from Equita today from a con
  5. I would be very grateful if anyone could help me with a congestion charge appeal. In October 2015, I completely forgot to pay a congestion charge. In the meantime, I have moved twice in a short period and have now just this month (April 16) received a notice saying I now have to pay £195! because I have not paid nor responded to any of their previous notices (which I have never received due to my moves) I wrote to them and explained the situation and offered proof of changes of address by way of copies of my updated driving licences which displayed the changes of address, and re
  6. Hi, I received a PCN the other day for failing to pay the London Congestion Charge in time (within 24 hours). I decided to look into the legality of the whole scheme and have come to the conclusion (1) that the PCN issued to me is void (of no legal effect) and (2) that elements of the scheme are unlawful and, in fact, void. This means that many, if not all, congestion charge fines will have to be refunded. My logic is as follows, but I will be grateful for comments (I might have got it wrong): 1. With regard to the PCN itself, the Road User Charging (
  7. Travelled to London on Monday, Waterloo. So in the congestion vicinity. Forgot to buy the congestion charge. Is now Wednesday. Am I going to be hit by a penalty charge notice? Is there anyway I can pay the congestion charge and avoid a PCN? Regards
  8. Family member drove into London week before Christmas. Paid the congestion charge on their phone next day within the 24hrs allowed, whilst travelling on a train. Received acknowledgement 'Thank you for your payment.' In less than 2 weeks receives a penalty charge £65 if you pay within 14 days. Rings them to say it was paid. They were then asked to check bank account. It is then found the cc was not debited. Explained the ack received on phone and was told 'we hear this a lot.' Now i'm thinking, if you checked your bank account on the same day as making the payment, you wouldn't see it as
  9. Hi, I wonder if someone can give me some advice please. This morning I went out to my car and it had been clamped. I called the bailiff on the notice and asked why and they said for unpaid congestion charge. I said to them that I hadn't received any notice giving me 7 days min from them but I had previously and paid. They said this was for two new ones. I was complete unaware of them. I then told them that the car belonged to my ltd so they better come round and remove the clamp or it will be cut off. They then threatened that I would be arrested to whi
  10. Hi folks, I'm hoping someone can help, I've had great and helpful advice before. I was in London for work on the 12/08/2014 and was trying to park near to UCLH. In heading for a certain car park I came to the junction (pictured and circled) and was stuck. As I approached, I could see this was a one way street, I could only go ahead but due to the bus in front of me I cant see this until I have nowhere to turn. So, rather than avoid the big red C by making a hazard of myself (a 3 point turn here would have been a disaster) I went across and got out ASAP using the route marked out. It was t
  11. Hello people once again they are after my money. I loaned my car to a friend who managed to pick up a congestion charged . I didn't know about it till it was at £200. What was odd with this was the prefix wouldn't allow me to view the evidence or pay! I spoke to the collections and by some miracle it was allowing me to pay and view the evidence . I commented on this and they said "Well it was already at £200 before you contacted us" Sounds to me like manual intervention. My question to you all is about this being County court where does that leave me as this has now bailiff charges o
  12. The price of London's Congestion Charge could rise by 15% under new proposals by Transport for London (TfL). TfL said the cost had remained static since 2009 and it hoped a rise from £10 to £11.50 for a daily rate would deter unnecessary journeys. Transport for London (TfL) regularly reviews the Congestion Charging scheme to ensure that it remains effective in reducing traffic and congestion in central London as well as improving the operation of the scheme. We are proposing to make changes to the Congestion Charging scheme. These changes include:
  13. Hello there good people, i am hoping for some solid advice on this matter. I had a saxo vts, i sold it filled in the v5 and im 99% sure but can not say for certain if i ever sent it off. The car when i had it was registered to an address i no longer live at ad the other day i visited that house (It's my GF's brothers house) and i was greeted by a letter from Transport of London for a congestion charge that hasn't been payed and the charge was issues for the offense in December. The letter was saying that since i have not payed the fine has increased, this is the 1st Ive heard of
  14. I have a Hybrid car which I drove into a CC area thinking as it is widely known that Hybrid cars are exempted from Congestion charge. To my surprise I had a penalty notice for £60, I appealed and sent them copy of the Log Book. But my appeal was rejected saying Alternative fuel discount has been abolished and new EU law only allow cars which CO2 is lower then 100g/KM. My car CO2 is 104g/KM. Now I have an option to appeal to Parking appeal services or pay £60. Is there any chance of success in the appeal? because then I will have to pay £120 in case of failure of appeal. Can I complaint to
  15. HI I have an outstanding PCN ticket that has now been passed onto the bailiff. Iwas not fully aware of this charge and unaware that thisstage of enforcement was about to happen. I woke up last Tuesday morning and saw my car had beenclamped. There was a sticker on the window and a piece of paper on thewindscreen. I contacted the person on the letter and explain I didn’t have the£600 costs to remove the clamp. and if i could pay off what i owe. That offer was refused. So the clamp is still on the car now over nearly a week later. And as I was not left a inventory or seizure notice
  16. Hope this is correct forum We are planning a trip on a weekday soon to the V&A Museum in Kensington. I am slightly confused about the boundary of the CC. TfL's map show the zone as Hyde Park -ish, but I seem to recall that the road is marked with a "C" just over the junction of the A4 and Earls Court Road Any thoughts please?
  17. Hi all, I had a hand delivered letter this morning from a bailiff working on behalf of JBW Group for the fee of £506. It was, to put it mildly, a surprise. I contacted JBW who said that I'd have to speak to the bailiff but they could confirm that the charge has arised from a non-payment of congestion charge from May 2010. I'm not debating the charge itself but this is the first time I've been contacted at all regarding the payment. I recently moved and updated my DVLA information two weeks ago so I assume this is why. However my TFL account clearly has my mobile number, email an
  18. Hello, I drove into the congestion charge zone last Friday and forgot to pay the charge. Is there any way I can make a payment now or do I have to wait for the PCN? I am not the owner of the car, but he is registered disabled and has a blue badge. I know it shouldn't cover me and I did intend to pay, but just plain forgot. But are blue badge cars covered on the CC's database?
