  2. Persistent offenders and PCN's... News! Parking fine evaders to have cars impounded! OUCH A news story from my local paper yesterday (16/06/2016)! >> http://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/local_news/14557958.Parking_fine_evaders_to_have_cars_impounded/ 'SCOFFLAWS who serially evade parking fines now risk having their cars towed and impounded under a council crackdown.' 'Government legislation, which the council is now taking advantage of, allows the authority to issue a further PSN and arrange for the car to be removed to a secure pound where the owner will have to pay a £105 removal fee and £12-day storage charge. Transport councillor Tony Cox said the policy will eventually be extended to include cars driving dangerously or causing an obstruction.' 'Other authorities to make use of the legislation include Birmingham City Council, Manchester City Council, and London boroughs such as Brent, Hounslow, Tower Hamlets, Newham and Camden'. Question time: Will this allow my LA to :- (A) Continue with the enforcement for the outstanding debt and (B) Add the enforcement fees (TCE) then © Add to (B) further new fees of £105 and the £12 storage fee to the debt if they also seize the vehicle of the persistent evader (D) How could this affect other LA's if they take the same stance as my LA My reading of this is: If a PCN is sent for enforcement via the TEC the LA can charge the normal fees regarding this debt (£75/£235) Then if the LA find the vehicle wherever, they can now seize this vehicle and add a further £105 + £12 a day storage as well as the normal enforcement procedure... Not sure what a PSN is?
  3. Hi all, Few months ago I have been assaulted by several persons (causing serious and remaining injuries) and then made a complaint but for unknown reasons (despite of cctv clearly identifying my offenders) I have been informed that my complaint/file has been closed for lack of evidence: I am also trying to save money in order to move and later hire a private detective for an investigation regarding my assault with a better standards. However, as I stiĺl at the moment working in the same area than my offenders, these lasts are trying to work by harassment and intimidation (obviously using other people (who even told me that my case could be worst)). Few days ago, one of their friends who is a lady wrongly accused me of assaulting her and callex the police to me.When I have been put on custody by the police due to the wrong behaviour of some officiers (an few days before) I signed a statement drafted by a custody solicitor saying that I recognised a crime I didn't commit. I have been now wrongly charged for a common assault that I didn't while I am innocent (I have refused the caution). The trial at a Magistrate Court will be next tuesday but despite of my low income I have not been granted legal aid. As a resutlt I would like to know how I can make my own defence. Can I send a written statement to the court before the trial (by special delivery explaining that I am totally innocent)? Thanks in advance.
  4. Companies are ignoring new guidelines on card fees. Which? has named the worst offenders. Holidaymakers booking winter escapes still face sky-high charges for paying by card – despite new rules designed to tackle “excessive” fees. Consumer group Which? found evidence of card charges well in excess of the 2pc level considered fair. In April, the Office of Fair Trading said someone spending £100 on a travel ticket should expect to be charged 53p extra if using a debit card, or £2.10 if using a credit card. This is equal to no more than 2.1pc. However, Which? said easyBus charged 3.5pc to use a credit card. Another firm, eDreams, increased the cost of a £93.21 flight from London to Rome by £17.01 on a Visa debit card – equal to 18.25pc more. By contrast, some firms have lowered charges. First Choice and Thomson cut credit card fees from 2.5pc to 2pc on October 1. EasyJet is set to make an identical move on October 17. Which? executive director Richard Lloyd said: “It’s disappointing that six months after the Government banned rip-off surcharges, consumers are still being hit with high fees simply for paying with a card. “While some companies have reduced their surcharges, there should be a crackdown on rogue companies who continue to flout the ban. We’ll be passing on our findings to Trading Standards and asking them to enforce the rules.” Consumer Minister Jo Swinson said: "We know it can often be a nasty surprise when consumers see an advertised price and then have an excessive payment surcharge added at the end. This is why we brought in measures - a year earlier than required by European law - to make sure that UK consumers benefit from clearer and fairer prices. "The prices that businesses charge should always be transparent. They shouldn’t keep extracting more money from excessive administration or booking charges from customers with each transaction. "Enforcers such as Trading Standards, the Office of Fair Trading and the Civil Aviation Authority have the power to seek civil injunctions against traders who break the rules on excessive payment surcharges. I will be writing to all the enforcement agencies about their obligations."

  5. in 1996 i got a ban because of drunk driving. Plus drink driving on a provisional .TOUGH LUCK. Firstly, at the court hearing it turned out the police officers had failed to note the correct license plate on the car. This came to light at the hearing, my lawyer advised me to sign an amendment, which corrected the fault and moved the case forward. Would refusing to sign the amendment have gotten me off? Could they still prosecute? Secondly I left the UK in 1997 and was in the USA up until 2010. on applying for a provisional i was told by the DVLA i would have to go through all the processes deigned appropriate i.e. higher expenses on applications, and paying for blood test. I wrote to the DVLA and called, asking if this was relevant considering i had ran out the time on the rehabilitation of offenders act. Of course they said no. My question is what takes prescedence: the DVLA and their records or the rehabilitation of offenders act.
  6. From today many more criminals will be made to pay towards supporting victims of crime. Currently offenders only contribute around one sixth of the funding that supports victims’ services. Hard-working taxpayers provide the rest. In a massive overhaul to the way services for victims and witnesses of crime are funded, the 'Victim Surcharge' is being increased and extended to apply to a far wider range of sentences. Extending the 'Victim Surcharge' is the next step in the Government's drive to see offenders provide up to £50 million more each year for victims services. This is on top of the £66 million already given by central Government. http://www.justice.gov.uk/news/features/new-rules-make-offenders-pay
