  1. 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!
  2. Hello all. Today - when doing the school run, I parked the car near to the entrance to a Highways Agency weighbridge. The gate is normally closed, however today, it was open. I parked, walked kids up to school and returned to the car. I got in, looked out - nothing obstructing me, so drove off - to an almighty crunch and smash. Not visible from the car, I hadn't realised that the gatepost (for when they lock the gate) actually sits in the road. I'm not really one to claim, but I wondered if there's possibility to claim against either the local authority or highways agency for not making this post visible - in height or sign..? Any thoughts??
  3. Have I just heard that right, cycle super highway being planned for the A40 in London. Who is thinking of this stuff, that is so dangerous..
  4. Hi On the 14th June my brother was using my van and on his way back from Bedfordshire to Liverpool. On the A14 Junction 1-2, the van had a blowout and both wheels came off (twin axle) at the back passengers side. van was on the hard shoulder with a bit of the van on a slant blocking a part of Lane 1. The holes where the bolts go in the tyre had expanded so it needed 2 new wheels so couldn't just arrange for a replacement tyre fitting. My brother rang me and I immediately arranged for Green Flag to recover the van off the carriageway. 45 minutes - 1hr was the estimated time. In the meantime, the Highway Agency tuned up and organised their own recovery. I spoke to the officer on the phone and he said it's first come first served (his recovery or ours). Because it was blocking part of the lane, they had to get it off as soon as. Low and behold, their recovery vehicle turned up first (beating Green Flag by less than 5 minutes). The van was taken to an storage/impound and I had to pay £250 + £20 1 day storage. I then had to pay a further £370 to get it recovered back to Liverpool. Do I have any right to appeal this? Thanks Mike
  5. Hi, there is a drain on the road about 2 meters from the end of our driveway, it is slightly above the level of the road and so when it rains the water builds up around the drain and floods our drive, this has caused it to sink where the car is parked on it. Only the wheels on the side that is flooded has sunken, not the others. Our waste water is supplied by southern water and I have contacted them several times over the years but no response or resolution of the problem. What can i do? Thank you for your help in advance. Kind regards, Andre.
  6. with the recent heavy rain our rear service lane 'filled up' and flooded my garage. the cause of this was 2 blocked road drains. the council had been told they were full on many occasions, they ignored the calls, even from their own workers. i have contents cover on the garage but it will not cover the full damage. can i make a claim against the councils insurer's?
