  1. Hi I got an OPC parking ticket back in December for blocking the road of a private estate (back of a shopping centre that has flats on the top) I was annoyed but in the end I decided it was my fault so I payed the £50. In February i was parked in the same private parking area only this time in one of the bays provided (I would also like to point out that i used to park in this place everyday for 3 years when i worked in the shopping centre and never got a ticket) and I got another ticket! i looked around and no other cars parked like me or the ones blocking the street had tickets. I
  2. I recently got a parking ticket from CP Plus for parking at Gartnavel Hospital in Glasgow. I parked on a small stretch of road which lead into one of the carparks, which had double yellow lines along it, with the exception of one area in the middle just slightly longer than a car length, which looked like it had been newly tarmacked, hence the broken yellow lines. It was within this space which I parked. Outwith the broken lines, I must also say the condition of the lines either side were terrible. I took photos when I got back to my car of my car in the space, then the empty space showing cl
  3. A Bailiff hand delivered a letter today giving me 24 hours to pay £265 for an outstanding parking ticket. The thing is, I have written to the Local Authority twice about this, as I had used their automated telephone system a couple of days after receiving the fine and believed it paid. The first I knew it was overdue was when I received a letter advising me that the fee had increased from £35 to £70. I wrote and told them that I thought this had been paid by telephone and asked that under the circumstances (i.e the apparent failure of their system) would I be expected to pay the addit
  4. Hi Guy's Was hoping someone could give a little advice. My Partner and i took my disabled grandmother food shopping and were dropping her home. (She lives on a busy main road (main bus route) which recently has had CCTV and double yellow lines put outside her house and the nearby shops.) My grandmother cannot walk unaided and therefore when i pick her up or drop her off i usually park outside her house and mount the kerb (two wheels). This is for two reasons, the first because this is the closest point to her front door and secondly, due to it being a busy
  5. hi there. i parked in Sheffield on a single yellow line, but as my pics show, its more NOT there then it is there. it was on saturday around 3pm and there was no signs up giving parking times or message saying if there where parking restrictions. i think im looking advice on whether this is a legal line and should i pay or challenge the parking ticket. got a few more pics but just starting with these 4. thank you
  6. Hi All, I received a parking ticket via Enfield Council in November 2012 (by a sneaky warden, sniffing around on a saturday afternoon) for having 2 wheels on the side of a curb. The initial ticket was £50 (rose to £117 after 14 days) I challenged this, it got rejected. Then challenged the fact that I didn't receive all letter documentation through the post, again this got rejected. Therefore the council instructed Jacobs Bailiffs to recover the debt. The initial letter sent by Jacobs had a charge of £180, the 2nd letter £247.47 (which stated removal in 48 hrs), then the 3rd £317.47 (remov
  7. Good evening everybody, I had a parking ticket back in September 2012, and due to my own personal financial misfortune, I was only able to pay it in April of this year (£105). Since then, Andrew James bailiffs have on two occassions gone to my previous address. I happen to know the person living at my previous address who told them at the door that I no longer live there. They went away but the same fella came back a fortnight ago again. This time, the resident let him in but explained again that I no longer live there. Again, he went away but gave the resident his mobile number for
  8. I have attached the pdf shows the warrant and all charges. I had this bailiff turned up and demanded the money or take my car away. I paniked and paid on my debit card, I have done some research now and seems that I have been charged a lot of fees that may be illegal. I would like some help reclaiming it. I have no problem paying a £60 ticket but over £500 for a £60ticket seems very wrong. I have tried to recover the money through the bank unde s75 but I have been fobbed off my Natwest. Can someone kindly put me to the right direction. Thank you TaskForce_Silver.pdf
  9. Hi folks, I wonder if somebody can put me straight, I parked on double yellow lines with my blue badge, I knew I was going to be more than three hours, but as there was not a little yellow sign saying" at anytime", I thought the yellow lines were only valid until 6pm. Anyway, I now have a parking ticket saying I went over my three hours. I tried to check to see the rules and I think I am in the wrong. So, bearing that in mind I sent a cheque for £35.00 to the local council. Unfortunately, they did not receive it. I have tried to pay again, but they insist that I have to pay the full amoun
  10. I was parked in my boyfriends allocated parking space in newton abbot, but recently without me knowing Premier Parking Solutions had put up signs and you had to display a permit, my boyfriend didn't tell me until I got issued with a charge of £75 if you pay within 7 days or £100, I appealed and sent in a photocopy of the permit but they said I had breached the conditions of the notice and still had to pay the charge. I'm a student and really cant afford to pay it and my boyfriend is on minimum wage and cant afford to pay it either. It says on their website that they en
  11. Hi Guys. I am in need of your help once again. I was in London on the weekend and parked on a Unnamed road in Harrow. This is the road: //g.co/maps/faext (please add the begining of the url your self) I was parked directly opposite the bins. Which had a single Yellow line, with a dash (blip) on the pavement. I received a parking ticket stating: "Parked or Loading / Unloading in a restricted street were waiting and loading / unloading restrictions are in place" at 21:15 in the evening. Having looked at google maps (see image below, i added the red line for the
  12. Hi guys, At the end of October I received a parking ticket from euro car parks worth 70 pounds for not adhering to signage on the site.. after reading up on the internet i decided to ignore this and received one more letter at the end of November. Which I again ignored. I have however today just received a letter from CCS collect (debt collectors) saying that I owe £1447.24 to H M Revenue???! there is no mention of where this number has come from but I can only assume its the parking ticket as I do not pay taxes or anything. Should I keep ignoring it or should I be scared now? this
  13. hi all, this is my first post on this forum, I have looked trhough to see if there is a similar thread, but mine is slightly different I think. Anyway this morning there was a knock at the door, a baliff was standing there saying he wanted to talk to my partner, she was out, but our car which I am using for business at the moment, was parked on the road in front of our drive, this guy had clamped it, which I wasnt too happy about as I am a 24 hr emergency locksmith and my tools and stock were in the boot. I told him to remove the clamp as I need to carry out my work, he refused
  14. I have recently joined the large number of people like you who have been stung by clamping of my car by Newlyn bailiffs 100 miles away from home for an unpaid parking ticket from over 1 year ago that i never even received. Being part way through the process with the TEC, I have only recently discovered how unfair traffic enforcement legislation is and Bailiffs get away with criminal behviour as most people are too scared or cant be bothered to fight. So after much research I have started a petition, contacted MPs, ombudsmen etc with a view to making a big fuss and causing CHANGE. Ple
  15. I'm currently fighting a parking ticket on "the other place" and have just found a receipt from Westminster Council for the payment for parking. I have no dispute with this, it's just that I notice it says: Westminster Pay by Phone Parking Receipt Location: 8765 License: nv***mxp Description: welbeck street Start Parking: 2011/02/14 9:47AM Stop Parking: 2011/02/14 9:57AM Cost: £0.67 including Service Charge Am i right in thinking that it's illegal to put a service charge on this. This is discriminatory since this charge does not apply to people who pay at ticket machin
  16. I received two (now three) parking tickets from Brent for briefly unloading a commercial vehicle on a single yellow line. I appealed, they wrote back to say that because my father is the legal owner of the vehicle they cannot consider my appeal. After discussing the matter with Brent, they requested hire documents showing that I was the keeper of the vehicle. I sent counter-signed hire documents by standard Royal Mail post, and heard nothing back for around a year (?). I concluded that the matter was closed. Suddenly my father has recieved correspondance from Brent, stating that c
