High Court Parking Ticket Victory for Motorists

 

 

 

High Court Parking Ticket Victory for Motorists

AppealNow.com’s claim that Barnet and other council’s parking tickets are invalid upheld by the High Court.

“I expect to uncover more illegal parking tickets – Millions of pounds are involved” says AppealNow.com’s founder, Barrie Segal.

 

Motorists being fleeced for millions of pounds

 

Barnet Council’s parking tickets were judged to be invalid in a landmark case decided in the High Court today.

 

Mr. Justice Jackson ruled that Barnet’s parking tickets were invalid as they did not have two dates on them, one a date of contravention and the other a date of issue.

 

In the case of Hugh Moses – v - Barnet, Barrie Segal the founder of www.AppealNow.com™, represented Mr. Moses at the Parking Adjudicator and challenged the validity of Barnet Council’s parking tickets on the grounds that they did not have a date of issue. Two separate Parking Adjudicators upheld Mr. Segal’s argument and agreed that Barnet Council’s parking tickets were invalid.

 

Barnet Council took the matter to the High Court and challenged the decisions.

 

Today’s test case decision by Mr. Justice Jackson ruled that Barnet’s parking tickets were invalid as they did not have two dates on them, one a date of contravention and the other a date of issue. He also said that any parking ticket needs those two dates to be valid.

 

Barrie of www.AppealNow.com™, who has also successfully challenged the validity of parking tickets of Lambeth and Tower Hamlets says “This is a stunning victory for motorists who have had to put for years with arrogant councils whose parking tickets were invalid. Barnet Council is the worst council - they have even sent bailiffs in to repossess and sell the car of a blue badge driver, all based on these illegally issued parking tickets.

 

This legal precedent also in my view opens up a huge problems for Councils all over the UK”

 

Says Barrie “Parking tickets have to comply with a strict legal requirement. Under the Road Traffic Act 1991 the date of issue, amongst other things, must be shown on the parking ticket. In the Barnet and other cases it was not.

 

I have previously told the Chief Parking Adjudicator in London, the National Parking Appeals Service and the Scottish Appeals Service that in the interests of justice all adjudicators must consider the validity of the parking ticket when the make their decision. The fact that Parking Adjudicators have not done this as a matter of course is unacceptable.. Following this decision they will have no choice.

Is there a place to go to contact National Appeal parking Adjudicator? i have a similar case to yours and i think Wandsworth Council is really taking the peace with me. I honestly would like to sue them for harrasment and intimidation.
