  1. Hello everyone, Hope you can help. Last year I jumped a red light - not on purpose, didn't realise I had. When the letter with the offer of a condition FPN arrived, I was perfectly willing to hold up my hands as it was certainly my fault. I duly paid up the £100 and thought no more about it. Unfortunately, it being a few days before Christmas, I completely forgot to send in my driving license in order to have the requisite 3 points added. This weekend, a court summons arrived - which initially perplexed me as I had evidence I had paid the fine. A call to the magistrates office con
  2. I recently got a notice to pay a £75 fine in the next few days to stop a court summons, however i had not received the FPN, and this was my first notification of it, I rung my council to speak with the most rude, abrupt person i have had the displeasure of speaking to, the letter was dated the 13th November, however between the 10-16th i was not in the country, however he magically comes out with saying the offence occurred on the 5th, i ask him for evidence, he refuses, and then says i need to dispute it, i said how can i dispute something i, have not received and have had no evidence for,
  3. Hi, My mother has just received an FPN for littering. Judging by the dates and location, the offence could only have been disposing of a cigarette butt out of the car window whilst driving. They haven't however given her any details or evidence of her committing the crime, just when and where. I'm not here to deny that it could have been her, or justify it (I hate the fact she smokes anyway, maybe this will prompt her to stop), but if it was a person who saw it rather than it being captured on film: - it's an offence carried out by a lot of people - are they sure it was her cig
  4. hi On 8th August i received a letter from the council re: waste disposed of contrary to enviromental protect act 1990 and clean neighbourhood and enviroment act 2005 It says on 31st july enforcement officers witnessed the driver throw a cigarette butt out of the DRIVERS window and drive away ... etc etc if you wish the council to consider any representations, ie you were not the driver on the date and time mentioned, before making your decision please can you ring me to arrange a mutually convenient time for you to visit the council offices within the next 7 days. On
  5. Hi all, I am after a bit of advice regarding a Fixed Penalty Notice issued to my father from our local council. It was issued to him for smoking in his car (which is a taxi and therefore classed as a smoke free place). It was originally issued for something else (smoking in a bus station) but was changed by the person issuing it. Now the council have no evidence at all other than the original allegation. There is no photographic proof, no video, no cctv and no other witnesses. Just the one statement. As it was on a Sunday, both my father and the "licencing officer" were on a da
  6. Hi, I got a parking ticket in December - my fault because I didn't know there were now restrictions. I paid up the £30 by Debit card the same day and forgot about it. Yesterday I received a letter saying that I hadn't paid said penalty and if I didn't pay up they would increase the amount to £45. I checked with my Bank who confirmed the time and date of payment, and said that the transaction appeared on my statement for the following day. As I didn't bother with a receipt from the gov.uk website, and I don't have the original ticket, what should I do next? I have tried phoning the lo
  7. Hi, apologies if this is the wrong forum, but.... I got caught driving in a bus lane in Glasgow - hadn't even noticed it was one - and got sent a Fixed Penalty Notice of £60, reduced to £30 if I paid within 28 days. I went online and paid it. Or at least thought I had. The transaction looked complete, there were nothing to suggest that it had failed. I have sufficient funds to pay. You can guess the rest - I later received a letter saying that I hadn't paid, and that the fine had been increased to £90. I appealed, explaining that it was their system that had failed to tak
  8. Hi, I received a Fixed Penalty Notice for parking in a residents bay whillst I was loading/unloading my company car from a business address. The Police Officer said as he had already started writing out the ticket he could not cancel it. I have a few questions: I only received Parts 3(payment slip), 4(vehicle defects) and 5(court request), Is that correct? There is no details of my car on the notice, although I cant see where it could be written as there is only space for drivers details. if there is no car details on the notice how can they chase me/my company for payment? I
  9. I just want help in clarifying whether I received a Notice of registration of fixed penalty and collection order for £135 as the courts believe I didn't pay the initial Fixed penalty notice I received for £80 (the policeman crossed out £80 and said it had gone up to £90)? I was unable to pay £90 online or over the phone so paid the £80 set on the website for fixed penalty notices and got the payment reference number. I have now received a Notice of registration from London South East and Central Courts ordering I pay £135. I'm confused as the policeman said I would just have to pay the £8
  10. Hi, I received a Fixed penalty notice for shoplifting in August and paid the fine the next day. The policeman at the time scribbled out the printed £80 on the Metropolitan Police Service Penalty Notice and said "it had gone up to £90" which he then wrote next to it. I tried paying over the phone but for some reason kept being told to try again later and the call dropping, so I paid online where there was no option to change the £80 to £90. I started receiving letters from Loss Prevention Ltd for £147 which I have ignored on the advice from this forum but today received a Notice of Re
  11. Hello to all, I was caught using my mobile phone whilst driving (bluetooth had not operated and answered a call) went through all the relevant questions and got a Fixed Penalty Notice, and a 'produce' ticket. I mislaid my Paper Licence, and went to local police Station, with other papers, and told them i had mislaid paper licence. Desk Sargent said don't do anything you will get a court date, The court date finally arrived, and i did not contest the Offence, just my explanation, to why i was using at that time. I didnt hear from the Court until a demand notice ca
  12. Hello I'd appreciate some help here please. Back in December, there was an incident where a friend drove a relative's car where a speeding ticket was incurred. My relative wasn't the driver or in the car but it was her car so she got the notice in the post. She quickly replied she was not the driver and named the person (my friend) she believed was the driver at the time. My friend sometimes stays at the relative’s address but not always. Anyway, a few notices were then sent to my relative in the name of my friend which my friend (the driver at the time) apparently did not respond
  13. Whilst working in darlington i recieved a FPN for littering Whilst i did drop a cigarette on the floor, i believe i was on private property whilst doing it. I have 2 days to appeal it, otherwise it goes up by £25 Now looking at the letter, they have spelt my surname incorrectly. Does this give me more grounds to appeal? Thanks
  14. I broke down today on a minor A road about three car lengths away from the traffic lights , and I had turned my engine off, put the handbrake on and put the warning lights on. I had dialled the number for Tesco breakdown, and I was in the process of moving over to the passenger side when a police van passed on the other side, and one of the officers mouthed at me to get off my phone. If I do receive anything in the post (I don't know how FPNs work), what should I do? I was not actually driving the vehicle, and everything was switched off, so was I committing an offence or not? I'm not try
  15. Hi, 6 months ago, I was in TK Maxx one the phone, and walked out with a bag. I was on the phone with my mum. I DID NOT REALISE I had taken it from the premises. All of a sudden, two men came up to me and asked me to follow them back into the store as I had just stolen a bag. I realised what had happened and followed them immediately, apologising. They conducted a search of my bag, and because I am a architecture student, I had on me a pair of pliers and two scalpels. They asked me to confirm my story and show them ID, but all I had was my student card on me, which did not have what
  16. Hi, I am writing to ask for advice on behalf of a friend of mine who has landed himself in hot water. Person was issued with Fixed Penalty Notice / Magistrates Court Fine, paid some of the balance, but due to an error (payment sent at post office, receipt lost as purse got lost/stolen, courts have no record of payment received), case has now been referred to bailiff. What was a £45 fine is now £345 as bailiff pushed a notice of distress form through the door making a levy on the car. Whilst researching, I found this on Philips' website: HMCTS new fee structure from 1st Janu
  17. Hi there. I was given a FPN for price swap/shoplifitng 14 months ago in Tescos, and was just wondering what the deal was with this and disclosures for future jobs. What is the difference between a Caution and a FPN, do you either get one or the other or can you get both, as I dont remember getting anythin that said 'caution' on it, but I did definitely get FPN of £80. I have read conflicting information saying that FPNS do not show up, even on enhanced disclosures, but that cautions do. Is this right? Also for jobs that require a standard disclosure do cautions not even
  18. We took our kids to Winter Wonderland on the 2nd January Bank Holiday and parked about 730pm with hundreds of other cars - that were not ticketed at the time - but parked in double lines down the centre aisle of South Carriage Drive. We couldn't see any signs saying you shouldn't park there and no one else had a ticket. After driving around for a bit someone pulled out and we manged to get into a section that was only one car in thickness (honestly there were hundreds parked up and down that section). We went and enjoyed ourselves, came back about twenty past ten to find hardly any car
  19. I received a road side FPN for speeding a couple of months ago. I have a couple of issues with it though. 1. The officer has not signed the FPN. 2. The speed wrote on the FPN is different to that on the court prosecution letter i received. Was i supposed to be written to within 21 days of the expiry of the FPN payment date? Just to add, I refused to sign the FPN when I was given it as the officers were very abrupt. Where do i stand, can anybody help?
