    • Wayne Ting, chief executive of e-scooter firm Lime, says there's room for improvement. View the full article
    • If you are absolutely certain* that you were parked OK, write a letter of complaint to the Headteacher and copy in the Chair of the school governors.   If you or the car were identifiable in any way from the photo (eg visible registration number, driver's face etc) I would very politely write that you resent the untrue suggestion that you had parked/had stopped/were waiting in a way that contravened any traffic regulations, and that you are sure that the school will understand that you would like an apology and a correction to be printed in the next newsletter.  (You can also clearly state that you were identifiable from the photo because other parents have mentioned it to you).   See if that works.   You don't want to go to court for defamation as you'll need access to about £10k in fees before you get out of bed.  You just want an apology and a correction.  If what you've told us is accurate, I don't see any reasonable school failing to say sorry.     *My wife is a former school governor and my experience listening to her is that very very few parents actually understand the meaning of the no stopping/no waiting signs and road markings outside schools.  Don't complain unless you are sure you weren't stopped where you shouldn't have been.
    • And they haven't offered a speed awareness course either?  (Have you done one in the last three years or is this in Scotland?)   And is one of the notices for 34 in a 30?  As Man in the Middle says, that ought to be below the level at which they take action.   (And sorry - I don't want to appear preachy - but...  there don't have to be any warnings or signs or lines on the road to advise you of the presence of speed cameras.  If you get away with an exceptional hardship argument you will need to stick to speed limits in future - whether you know there are cameras there or not.  NB Don't know if this applies to you, but most 30 mph limits are restricted roads with a system of streetlighting and don't even need speed limit signs - you are assumed to know this from the Highway Code).
    • It's up to you if you want to pay £300 you don't owe plus whatever Unicorn Food Tax with no basis in law whatsoever that they will have made up in the Letter Before Claim.   We'd prefer you didn't.   But you have received a LBC so it's make your mind up time.   So please    - post up photos of the signage in the dark that you'll have taken two months ago (post 14)    - post up details of planning permission for their signs you'll have found out after you got onto the council, again two months ago (again post 14)    - also let us know if you agree with Brassnecked's excellent letter or if you'd like to tweak bits depending on what you've found out    - upload the LBC.  Some of them are appallingly drafted and invariably contain Unicorn Food Tax which is all useful extra ammo    - also, where are you living now (post 35) and are you comfortable with legal communications arriving at your parents'?   If you look in our PPC Successes thread at the top of the page, you will see 275 times these cheats have been seen off with their tails between their legs (and all had the same "well known legal companies" (ho! ho!) on hand).  In reality 275 times is a massive underestimate, in all 275 cases there was a "moment of victory" IYSWIM where the PPC were thrashed in court or discontinued a claim or were called off by a supermarket chain, etc., etc.  There will have been at least that number again where they were told to Foxtrot Oscar and then crawled back under their stone.  They are eminently beatable but logically when you're in legal dispute you have to put some graft in to beat the other party.

I think it's a shame to move the thread here as newbies won't find it and if we have to point them in this direction other posters may not like it :(

That programme about the undercover guy at Merlins, DCA, has just finished on Channel 4:eek::eek::eek:

 

The DCA itself did us all a favour but the interviewer and interviewee were so flipping weak, I could scream:eek:

 

So few acts and laws and regulations quoted, it was almost as if this programme were in favour of DCA's. Wonder if any true reporters would like to buy my Truecall recordings???:mad::mad::mad:

I'm very disappointed it's been moved to the bear garden. I only found this thread because of the DCA forum......not this one. Why now - that's what I would like to know. I know it goes off topic (a bit.....) BUT nevertheless.....:rolleyes:

I missed it.

 

Agree with you all, we should go back to the debt forum. I very seldom look in the bear garden unless it's one of Fred's postings.:D

 

Not been on the forum much recently as I am trying to do two full-time jobs!!! I'm sure it's already been on here, but I was so pleased to see Truecall got investment on Dragons' Den.

Gawd all my threads will end up in the bear garden if the new criteria is put them here if they have a few jokes in them :rolleyes:

 

I think on balance, if a thread has been in place for over 18 months it was in the right place, humourus postings aside this thread does have a lot of serious information that was usefull where it was and will be missed in the bear garden

If someone would like to trawl through all 7065 posts and identify the

"serious and valuable" information then I will be happy to split the posts into two different threads.

 

Somehow, I suspect that any useful information would have been lost in the "off topic" posts.

Maybe something like "Cheekiness towards a DCA on topic post."

 

Or did you mean the off topic posts thread?
