  1. Hello, I will be grateful if you can please help me if there is something I can do with this notice please. On 23/12 I went to Kensington high street, whilst looking for parking space I saw a sign (attached) and empty space saying No stopping at any time except 7 am - 4 pm, P for 30 minutes. I safely parked my car which was left there for about 15 minutes. I then returned and made way home. I am now in receipt of this notice (attached). I went back there and saw two conflicting signs and wonder if I could successfully challenge it or it was just my sheer stupidity :/ Thank
  2. Hi just a quick one regarding regulations on red route signage. It's in camden high street outside of lidl/william hill. The first bay to oncoming traffic is loading only and the one after is free 30mins. Both bays separated by just lines and very hard to judge different restrictions. Should there be another sign indicating either end of loading bay or start of free bay. Thanks. https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@51.5362652,-0.1401768,3a,75y,32.97h,68.76t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sA35WUEWCOEaUumKqzc4Flg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
  3. Ok a quick scan on his forum says I'm not alone but here's my story - just wondering what the best set of steps is, i.e. complain to NPOWER even though I'm not a current customer, raise it with the regulator, or other options. I was with NPOWER until December 2014. I paid my bills on a monthly direct debit budget scheme. When I switched suppliers I very kindly received a cheque from NPOWER for the balance on my account and thought that was that. Of course I then got bills, lots and lots of bills with lots and lots of amounts. It took them, in my opinion far to long
  4. Hi folks, Hoping someone can help me out with some advice. Got a PCN for parking in a loading bay on a red route just south of Purley. I appealed against it and they have rejected that appeal. I was driving into London with a friend who suddenly developed serious cramp in his legs. He was in a lot of pain, so I pulled over the first chance I got, into a loading bay on a red route. He got out and he stretched his legs and I went with him to make sure he was alright. We were stationary for less than 3 minutes. A week later I got a PCN and a £130 fine. I appealed
  5. We recently had the red route loading/parking bays suspended outside our business,on both sides of the road.After several days,I began to wonder why this was happening.On closer inspection,I found a white notice attached to a post on one side of the road stating that the suspension was to be for 2 days whilst road maintenance was being carried out.As we were now 8 days in,and the signage was still in place,I decided to call TFL to check what was going on.After being given the usual telephone run a round,I was told to email my enquiry and someone would investigate.Now,10 days after the suspensi
  6. Hi All, This a.m. received PCN for above offence. I was actually parked in a loading bay (lay by) off the main carriageway, completely off the main red route carriageway. I did actually notice on my return to vehicle a loading bay sign use only after 10.am. I got cctv`d at 09.53. My point is that whilst I was parked in the layby (loading bay) at the wrong time, I have been fined for stopping on a red route or clearway. The picture clearly shows me parked OFF the carriageway. Is the layby (loading bay) considered part of the carriageway? There are no lines in the bay itself. Does anyone
  7. This road has parking bays all up the road, with no signs. At the end of the road, is the A12, which has a red route. The red route starts at the bottom of each side road. The other side of this road also has the same sign, but no bays. I am confused as to whether or not the sign includes the restrictions on the bays. If it does, it doesn't make sense as it's just the same as any other bay in the area, the street is residential, thus no need for loading. I parked here once for the day, didn't get a ticket, but decided not to park there again just in case. Others tend to avoid
  8. Hi Folks Can anyone help? Parked my car on what I thought was a local ordinary road at the junction of a red route. As a local I thought I was parked on a local road with free parking but very close to the end of the road. I was parked just behind but not on the pedestrian access crossing of the road. There was more than adequate room for cars to turn into the road. All cars exit the road turning left. On returning to the car I found a PCN on the windscreen and a van behind me had also received one. Just behind us was a RED ROUTE sign - in some way in
  9. I have broadband speed issue caused by the route provided to my telephone line by British Telecom. I get a broadband speed of 1.4 meg download, my neighbours in the same area get speed of 2.4 to 3.0 meg download. After complaints to BT they decline to do anything to provide me with the same service as my neighbours, My neighbours are 3 km from the exchange, My line is 6 km from the exchange, where does my line go between next door and here ? I pay for a service of up to 20 meg speed. BT provide me with a sub standard service. Is there anything I can do ?
  10. Dear all I've been done for driving into a bus route on Rye Lane, southbound - in Peckham. https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Rye+lane+peckham&hl=en&ll=51.467189,-0.066304&spn=0.000027,0.019248&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=52.637906,78.837891&hq=Rye+lane+peckham&t=m&z=16&layer=c&cbll=51.467253,-0.066402&panoid=PVlcaBOMg2k4M1lbKxv02w&cbp=12,134.24,,0,8.58 So I made a Representation on the following grounds: - Warning sign is severely defaced - It's the wrong warning sign (should be #877) - It's the wrong warning road-marking (sh
  11. The other day when I bought a ticket, the conductor on board the train told me I was travelling in the wrong direction. I told him that I wasn't as I'd looked online and it suggested this route as it was the quickest on the way there. When he input the data on the machine he confirmed that I was correct. I asked if the ticket could be an any permitted route ticket as I would be travelling back the other way. He told me that while 'any permitted' meant I could travel in either direction, once I had started travelling I would be restricted to that route, meaning I would have
  12. Hi all, wondering how to go about applying to court for damage due to failure of Rbs & barclaycard to fully comply with SAR request. I had a look at small claims forms but couldnt see any thing that would fit for this type of claim. Any help greatly appreciated.
  13. Its reported that the blunder will cost £40m http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-19809717 Only yesterday Firstgroup were anticipating that the deal would see them take over the franchise in December !! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-19797168
  14. Labour and others are also calling for the signing to be abandoned. Virgin and Stagecoach have had the franchise since 1997. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-19388309
  15. How would one fight a tfl parking fine issued for parking in a loading bay. There was another topic on this but thought that each situation is different: This situation: TFL warden was in the process of writing out ticket but the person drove off before this could be issued. They sent a ticket through the post but the information on it was incorrect ie vehicle was in bay for less than 5 minutes (min observation i believe) and when ticket was sent through the post they only included the start of the observation and not the end time. I believe the PCN should be correctly filled in.
