    • I don’t know as all I have is an email from them saying this is your account number   “You have a new document available on your Capquest account xxxxxxxxx.   Please click the below link to login to view your document   Click here   If you have any questions, please contact us on 03339997228 quoting Xxxxxxxxxx.   We may have already been in touch with you by phone or letter, if you are not happy being contacted through email in the future or if you are not the person quoted in this email, please let us know.   Yours sincerely The Capquest Team“ Right now I don’t know what it’s for as I haven’t clicked their link or confirmed my identity to them on their site using their reference number. I presumed from reading around this was a student loan chase.   Thanks   
    • Glasses Fogging Up while wearing a Face Mask   Thought I would add this here as a Glasses wearer and being in Scotland where it is now Mandatory to wear a Face Mask.   Myself being as said a Glasses wearer have bought numerous different Face Masks to stop my Glasses Fogging Up when wearing these Face Masks but sadly none resolved the issue.   Tried numerous different recommended anti fogging for my Glasses but didn't resolve the issue.   Then I simply tried these Face Masks again except this time moving my glasses from the bridge of my nose down my nose to see if the fogging stopped and low and behold this simple solution worked.   So my advice to all Glasses wearers before you go out and start buying all different Face Masks to stop Anti Fogging is simply wear the Face Mask and move yours Glasses forward on the Bridge of your nose until the Fogging stops then you have and idea where to place your Glasses when wearing a Face Mask. (Note: it may be advisable for some people to get some sort of Glasses strap in case your Glasses fall off don't want to damage them)   This is just my perspective on being a disabled veteran and a Glasses wearer having to wear a Face Mask during this period of COVID-19 if anyone else has any tips please feel free to add to the discussion.   BE SAFE EVERYONE
    • well to sell the debt RBS would of have to have issued a default notice upon sale or before. now to take since june 2014 to issue a DN is outrageous so i suspect you did received a DN from then years ago but have forgotted   RBS had your correct address ...thus so do cabot  they can't issue a back door CCJ claim then like your other one (M&S CARD)  and must abide by the pre action protocol.   await cabot to start waving their arms at you   in the meantime, send RBS an SAR.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Where you on the inside or the outside of the bend?

 

Where there any speed restrictions in place?

 

If you wish to sue the council you will have to prove that they have been negligent in maintaining the road which could be difficult.

you should be driving in a safer manner for the surface you are on.

 

you have already admitted you knew it had been resurfaced, so p'haps should have been driving at a slower speed incase what has happened, had happened!

 

what are you going to write about?

 

dear council,

i was on one of your roads which had been recently been resurfaced & because i was going too fast, i did not brake in time because of the loose gravel, oh and the road is too narrow for two cars to pass, oh and i live in this area so i know i cant pass another car.

 

its your car, you should be driving it in a safe manner dependent upon road conditions.

so basically

wrong place

wrong road

wrong time

very unlucky.

 

was the other guy doing the same speed too?

 

signage might play a part here then?

 

slow 20mph loose gravel things

blind corner

single track road

 

yes i did presume speed.

 

i am wondering if you were both then only doing 20mph, if you do have a case against the council or highways for too much loose gravel.

two people are better than one if a claim like this.

well, i expect as you, have seem road sweeper dealing with too much gravel after the road has been done. bit like clearig mud up.

 

i'd post up the photos.

 

some really knowledable members i'm sure will look in when work finishes

if you have the photos up it might well help.

 

i think it is resonable for two cars to be able to stop on such a road, so there must be a 'something' that stopped this happening, could well be lack of grip through to much loose gravel. else the road would be signed a bit better if lots of crashes happen because it is 'just' dangerous.

 

i'l pop back later .

dx100uk, do you not have better things to do? Did i mention the speed that i was driving at? no, so dont persume that i was driving like an idiot.

You persumed that i lived in the area, so knew the road. Not true.

 

theclaimbroker, i was on the outside of the bend driving in second gear at 20mph. Suing the council wasnt necessarily on my agenda, as i understand the complications it would involve.

 

 

Please don't be put off by the trolls

 

Can you be more descriptive of the road width etc & it's condition at the time - When you say it had been resurfaced then when approx & were there any signs indicating loose chippings & what is the speed limit

Thank you dx100uk :)

 

I cant remember seeing any signs, ive been searching through my mind and i really cant remember seeing any at all.

The other driver said he was doing around the same speed, this is why we had both agreed it was 50/50 liabilty although both of us are cheesed off about the road surface and feel that had there been a better surface then we both could have stopped in time. I have photographic evidence of the state of the road, and the positions of the cars after the collision. Do you think i may have a right to question the council over the condition of the road surface?

 

 

Yes you can - Also the contractor who resurfaced the road is duty bound to return very soon thereafter to ensure that any loose surface debris is removed this should be in their diary - but often this doesn't happen for one reason or another but still it's the councils responsibility to ensure it's done

having download, zoomed and look at the one photo so far.

 

there is no sign to me that there is excess gravel nothing on side of road or splattered in grass etc.

 

there is also no sign on the skid marks of dragging nor rutting which would show movement of loose gravel.
