  1. 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 n
  2. A friend has received a final demand letter from Islington council saying he has ignored 2 previous letters and therefore must pay the escalated sum of £200 with no right of appeal. He says that this is the first letter he has received and, although he accepts the offense, he dose not see why he should pay £200, rather than the £65, that is the amount that is payable on acceptance of the first letter. The penalty was issued via camera, so no ticket was placed on the vehicle. According to this final letter, the second reminder was sent on 25/12/2015, which
  3. Hi Everyone, I have abit of a funny situation here and need some urgent advice. How soon after contravention should you receive a PCN? I have received 4 in total for the same offence 52JM, one going into the road at one time and one for coming out at another time on the same date? Is this even legal? Admittedly if i knew i committed the offence in the first place trust me i would not have done it again. I received 3 in one envelope today and one last week. All totalling upto £260 which is allot of money for me at the moment but to issue me two tickets on the same day at different times
  4. Hi Everyone, I wondered if you could help me. Is there anything I can do about this? It is due to be paid today to get the discount to £60, although is wasn't even issued until almost a month after the car was parked there! The driver of the vehicle was dropping off an M+S employee, the store is located in the same precinct as Morrisons, and the driver waited in the car (worked from it) until leaving later. No written confirmation of M+S giving authorisation to park there is available. Am I right in thinking these are not enforceable? Many Thanks
  5. Evening all, I visited some friends in Archway last weekend. Whilst there I parked up my vehicle in what I thought was a shared used zone (Ashbrook Road), paid for a ticket and went about my business. Upon returning to my car I notice I've received a PCN. Looking around the area, it turns out I had parked adjacent to the sign saying Permit Holders only. I hold my hands up for not paying close enough attention, the shared use zone was further down the street; I'm not arguing that. With that being said, nobody likes to pay a fine, especially when
  6. Hi All, In desperate need of some help and advice! I arrived to my car this morning to be greeted by 3 PCNs. The back story is that I parked my car on Thursday evening at the back of my permit bay and did not realise that the back wheel was outside of the bay and on a single yellow line. I then left London and did not return until this morning. As far as I can see there are no notices or signage detailing the hours for the single yellow line. The times of the parking tickets are 09.58 on Friday, 08.48 on Saturday and 08.47 on Monday morning. It seems unfair that I

  8. This is my first post so please excuse the length of the thread and the incorrect use of paragraphs, it was just to make the post clearer and easier to follow. I received a PCN from Islington council in December of last year. I was half parked on a double yellow line and half in an out of hours residents bay on a residential road. It was a Sunday evening in a commercial vehicle (under 3.5 tonnes) and I was unloading and making a delivery to a house. The unloading was constant and I did not leave the vehicle unattended for more than 5 minutes at a time and overall I was there for unde
  9. I have been given a ticket and appealed it on the basis that the signage isnt clear. The council say that its a market traders bay and active only on match days as it is near arsenal football ground. Before I went there the person I was seeing made the effort to get a valid temporary residents parking permit for the day which I correctly adjusted. I researched the day before to make sure that it wasn't a match day and the team were in fact playing away. I arrived on the day and read the sign very carefully and there was a bay with a number in it but on reading the sign which was between my s
  10. Good afternoon. Last week I was given a penalty charge notice by Islington Council for parking in a suspended residents' parking bay. I wasn't very happy about the pcn for a few reasons: -The signs were only put up the day before the suspension. The council claim they went up ten days before, I'm pretty sure they didn't but obviously can't prove it. -The council put some cones up around the area to be suspended the night before the suspension. My car was outside of the coned off area. I raised this in my initial appeal but the officer appears to have ignored it. -(Retrospectively)
  11. See below links. http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll38/bribribourbonbourbon/citypcnpg1final.jpg http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll38/bribribourbonbourbon/citypcnpg2.jpg Car was parked with a blue badge on singel yellow which is ok in Islington but this was on Golden Lane. One side of the road is Islington but I didn't realsise that the other side was City of London. The location on PCN is only Golden Lane. Also I think yellow line has a break of about 50cm-1m. hard to tell becasue it goes through motorcycle bay. the map link http://goo.gl/maps/MiSXp. The ca
