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?
