Morning everyone. My wife this time receives the attached. The ticket was placed very carefully on the dashtop correct side up. Whats the best way forward please. Many thanks CCF14062018_00000.pdf
Hi folks, I too got a remote sensed ticket from this bunch for an alleged offence on 28 November 2014 at the same spot and the letter FCN was issued 23/12/2014. No ticket was issued at the time We moved house so didn't get it until early January and the photograph places me mid manoeuvre at the side of Laura Ashley as I dropped my wife off to pick up something for her Mum. I appealed the ticket thinking they were a bunch of chancers but I note in retrospect that their online appeal form has a check box for registered keeper or driver and I don't know which one was ticked. We recently had a reply to our appeal dismissing it and showing other pictures of our 'offence' and they put the charge up to £100.00. Are we able to send the following letter to get them off our backs? ' As Schedule 4 of the POFA 2012 has not been followed, then as registered keeper I am not liable for the charge. Address all further correspondence to the driver of the vehicle at the time of event. I am under no obligation to name the driver of the vehicle at the time of event. No further correspondence will be entered into. This has been sent with proof of postage. ' Get free proof of postage from post office and ignore all further begging letters you will receive.. Many thanks TB
Hi - i'm new here but i guess my story is anything but. Any advice from you wise people would be very welcome. On the 14th december i stopped outside the car boot sale in the middle of town in Lewes to get a coffee from the snack van. I didn't even lock the car and was walking back to it maybe 3 mins later to find what i thought was a traffic warden issuing a ticket. I said I was off, drove away and now, ten days later I get a Fixed Charge Notice demanding £100 pounds, from a company called Capital2Coast. if i pay within fourteen days of the notice (is that when I got the letter or the 'date of contravention'?) I get a reduction to £60. Oh and there's a £1.75 card surcharge if I pay over the web... I quote - "The driver of the vehicle is liable for a fixed charge notice in the above amount which, at the date of this notice, remains unpaid in full and for which the balance due remains unpaid. A Fixed Charge Notice was affixed to the windscreen of the vehicle at the time of the contravention or sent throughout the post to the registered keeper. This charge relates to the period of parking that immediately preceded the issue of that Notice, the charge having been incurred for the reason as stated above and liability for the same having been brought to the attention of the driver by clear signage in and around the site in and around the site at the time of parking." The letter shows a photo of my vehicle from the rear, presumably taken as I was reversing, and doesn't show the whole vehicle. The 'Reason For Issue' is failure to display a valid permit. As far as I can tell, this is public land, but I'm not sure, it's to the side of Laura Ashley, not the front, if anyone knows the area. Anyway, it seems extremely unreasonable to me. I'll go and have a look at the site to see what the notices say tomorrow. Any thoughts?
