  1. Hello All A work colleague of mine sold a van a few years ago. He did not complete the DVLA paperwork as the dealer wanted to onward sell the vehicle which happened shortly afterwards. About a week later it was involved in an accident and the other party which was a business, after several years of sporadic mail issued and obtained a County Court Judgement for damages, this despite knowing that my colleague was not at the time the owner or keeper. He did not know about this having moved house several times but recently had the unpleasant experience of Bailiffs knockin
  2. Hi i bought a 2nd hand car 5 days ago costing £5300 after paying £250 as deposit to secure the vehicle while it was sent to have its MOT done by a MOT station of the dealers choice, i returned the following day and i paid £4250 via bank transfer and a further £800 by credit card i was told it had full dealership service history, 12 month MOT, it also was given a pre-delivery inspection by the seller himself. When i got home i was inspecting the service record and noticed it had not been serviced for 17 months some 20,000 miles ago in fact it had only 1 service in 4 years (50,000) i took it f
  3. Today the Ministry of Justice announced that from March a new service is being rolled out across the UK and Wales allowing people charged with some minor motoring offences to enter a plea online from any suitable device (including mobile phones) 24 hours a day. This will be done via a secure Ministry of Justice website and is an alternative to a postal plea or attending court in person. Motorists will be able to view their case details, view evidence and make their plea remotely. Motorists who use the new service to plead guilty at the earliest possible stage will benefit by receivi
  4. A service allowing motorists in England and Wales charged with summary motoring offences to enter a plea online is being launched by the government. People charged with a minor motoring offence such as speeding or not having insurance will be able to enter a plea 24-hours-a-day via a secure website. The gradual roll-out of the "Make A Plea" scheme from March follows a successful pilot in Greater Manchester. The government says it saves time and money for the criminal justice system. Last year saw 4.5m minor motoring offences processe
  5. I was Googling today and found 2 stories which can be found here http://recombu.com/digital/news/tv-license-fine-rises-to-4000_M13268.html Forget it says about TV licensing in the title read the thread further down the link , the Government is proposing to increase motoring fines in 2015 to a horrible amount "Other financial penalties being increased in the same proposals include those for motoring offenses. Speeding on a motorway will soon attract a maximum fine of £10,000, whilst breaking the speed limit on dual carriageways will attract a fine of £4,000" Any though
  6. Unfortunatley I have fallen victim to what appears as a very reputable company on the outside.I was in a car accident some weeks ago, the person who caused the crash admitted liability. As I use my car for work purposes their insurance company Admiral confirmed they would supply me with a replacement car. This is when Accident Exchange got involved as Admiral instructed them.The car arrived very late and the delivery chap was in a panick (rushing) as he needed to get the train and go to collect his next car. I was asked to check the car and fuel. I questioned what was being signed about the in
  7. I bought a car on Tuesday 28thAugust 2012 from a second-hand dealer. I had a few concerns regarding thevehicle at the time of purchase regarding the brakes, tyres & excessive noise when turning the steering wheel at full but was assured everything was in order, full MOT given and my concerns were merely due to the vehicle having been sat idle for 4 weeks. I immediately took the car to my local MOT testingstation and the repairs required are excessive to the amount of over £1000. In particular my local reputable MOT provider has noted an 'egg' tyre which they believe has been tampered with
  8. Hi, I am fairly new to this, I couldn't find a legal forum, so I put it here since it started as motoring offences. My main question is this... What right do you have to a trial by jury? I have been right royally shafted by the courts, and I know that if there had been a jury I would have been acquitted. My case has now been through crown court.... Do I have any further right of appeal? What happens with fines... There was no means test applied to my case. Can I apply to have my fines reduced ? In crown court no mention of guilt, or sentence, nor the amount of fi
  9. Hi! I recently bought a car I saw advertised on Gumtree by a 'private seller'. After test driving the car, and asking about its previous history, I noticed a section of poor paintwork on the front passenger side of the car. However was reassured the car had not had a serious accident and that it was in very good condition. Less than two months after purchasing the car it fell to pieces, with over ten faults. After having it valued it appeared to be over worth £1000 less than I paid for it, and I discovered it was a category C car. The log book I was shown when I purchased the car had
  10. Question: When is a piece of standard equipment in a Ford motor car not a piece of standard equipment? Answer: When Ford UK decide it is not despite ALL publications and websites (including independent ones) saying that it is.
