    • Hello and welcome to CAG. People should be along to advise over the course of the day.   Which retailer are we talking about please?   By the way, something seems to have gone wrong with the spacing in your post above so I've popped in some paragraphs.   Best, HB
    • I'm after some advice before I fill in and return the section 172 "request for driver name and address".  I am the registered keeper of the vehicle stated .   The alleged offence (Exceeding variable Motorway speed limit 68mph in a 60mph zone) was committed on 29/07/2020, the NIP is dated 31/07/2020.  On Wednesday the 29th July 2020 a friend and I were driving for a much needed break from South Wales to spend a few days in Yorkshire, we shared the driving for the 4.5 hour journey at just over an hour at a time each.    My problem is this, 1.I have no idea of the location or recollection of the place to which the police refer (M1 Northbound Duckmanton Derbyshire?)  and 2. I cannot say with any accuracy which of us were the driver at that particular time.  I have a clean driving licence and am usually very speed aware using the cruise control at most times.   an offence for a mere 8mph on a motorway with everything that is going on at the moment seems extremely harsh IMO.     I would much appreciate if anyone could offer help / advice at what I should do next? Many thanks  🙁
    • Hello just asking,? I purchased a discount new cooker as it had cosmetic damage, paid £250 After a few days I noticed the fan never went off, I contacted the company and they finally collected the cooker and took it away, ( for 7 days) And fixed it,   It never seamt right? It steamed up in the clock panel and the oven door was mis-lined It had multiple dints in the sides Top panel missing on the door to stop food dropping in, Shelving didn’t fit well Then main fan started to rattle and tap   I put up with all this as it was *discounted Then one day whilst cooking we could smell a funny smell Turns out the wires had melted on the back of cooker I contacted the company again and it took a lot of phone calls to try and get the problem dealt with, speaking to several different staff....I wanted a refund or replacement I had had the cooker 6 months just! I asked for a refund or replacement    I contacted trading standards and citizens advice and they advised me what steps to take! Finally the company offered to replace the cooker, then later changed! As they explained that nothing came in to replace it they were too damaged! ( been told they buy at auction damaged) They wanted to look at the cooker and inspect the damage themselves, so I agreed they collected the cooker, No update, or communication I had to constantly chase them up Nothing was sorted out with 7 days we had no cooker, I threatened Trading standards were now involved Last thing on a Friday in June they rang to say I can collect the cooker it’s fixed!!!! I had expressed all along I didn’t feel safe using this cooker anymore with my family I didn’t want this cooker fixing again ( by whom) They started to blame me and said I should be grateful they aren’t charging me for the repair!   Still today in August this is not resolved  Trading standards have been useless  Citizens advice have told me to take them to small claims court!???? I have had to purchase another cooker  As I’ve been left without one.   I am in a vulnerable situation in life, Im a carer for my husband and have children and have no one to help me sort this mess out! I am struggling with making the county court claim ? What shall I do?   ( sorry for long message) ✨
    • The committee's report is pretty damning, isn't it? The Home Office refused to supply the scientific evidence it said its decisions were based on and you can possibly see Demonic's hand in this - he has form for ignoring select committees.
    • and that facts start to come out 'Inexplicable' failure to quarantine travellers to the UK made pandemic 'far worse', say MPs UK ‘almost unique’ in rejecting border checks in crucial March period – without scientific basis – as hundreds of infected passengers arrived every day   https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/coronavirus-uk-quarantine-travel-cases-deaths-covid-a9653451.html   "Strikingly, it says the Home Office refused to set out any scientific advice to explain the “grave error”, despite repeatedly promising to do so – a stance attacked as “completely unacceptable”."   So even aside from not testing in any way people who returned: "Yvette Cooper, the committee’s chair, said the critical mistake was the decision on 13 March – 10 days before lockdown – “to remove all self-isolation guidance for travellers arriving in the UK”."   "The MPs also pour scorn on the Home Office’s argument that 99.9 per cent of arrivals are obeying requirements to quarantine for two weeks, finally introduced in June. They describe the claim, made by home secretary Priti Patel as “unreliable”, because it appeared to be based only a limited number of compliance checks made and three fines issued."       So not only did Johnsons cronies NOT make any efforts whatsoever to test people returning, and NOT properly check people were self isolating, they actually stopped telling returnees to self isolate for 10 days before the country was locked down as the number of epidemic infections exploded.   Wonder why?   "The committee’s inquiry heard that, in the crucial 10 days between scrapping isolation guidance and the lockdown, up to 10,000 infected people arrived."

    • 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

Someone in my family stayed in an Aldi car park for 3 minutes too long the other day. Never had a private parking invoice through the door before, but read all about them. Actually quite looking forward to it!

 

The thing I noticed on the sign in Aldi was they now say if you don't pay the charge, they'll clamp you on your next visit to Aldi or any car park operated by Parking Eye.

 

Not great, so we'll just have to be very careful about where to park in the future! :roll:

 

Watch this space for when the letter arrives!

It's a bluff. Like Tesco in Salford Quays - lots of blue signs that simply say "car clamping now in authorisation".

Don't think Tesco legal compliance have seen them!

Yeah if you could, it could be interesting as I think you cannot carry an incident across to another landowner's property. Also as it is a civil matter, they coudl find themselves in a lot of poo poo.

Unfortunately I don't have a picture. I only thought about how long the car had been there when we drove out and I saw the ANPR cameras.

 

If I'm there again, I'll make sure I get a photograph.

 

Why would you want to park there again, if someone treat me like that, then I would rather vote con/lib than spend my money at a store which treats folk with contempt.

The actual wording on the sign is " Failure to park within marked bays or if the issued Parking Charge is not paid, may result in your vehicle being immobilised,released only upon payment of the clamp release fee. "

Good enough reason not to shop at ALDI's, however it does not state that they will clamp you for a previous infringement of their rules. If they did it would be very bad publicity for ALDI and any judge would award you damages but getting it out of the clamping firm could be hazardous to your health.

It is very missleading though because they issue you with the "parking Charge " weeks later through the post so that sign can only mean that they MAY clamp you for a previously unpaid charge.

Very very dubious, give Consumer Direct - Contact us a call and see what they say, they will also pass on the details of your complaint to the OFT and TS.

As a "Parking Charge" is issued by post after you have outstayed your welcome, how can it mean anything other than they are clamping for a previous unpaid charge?

Hollow threats though. Parking Eye can say anything but we all know they are a rock solid, just send letters outfit.

I've mentioned this Aldi (Parking Eye) clamping sign before, a couple of months ago, on the McDonalds Stansted thread.

So what's the advice if you *DO* find your car clamped? Cut it off/remove it by any means?

We all know it's illegal to clamp unless trespass has been committed etc, but these clampers don't take any notice of whats legal and what isn't do they? So you might find your car clamped even if you've only bought it the day before...?

I have sent a letter of complaint to the BPA about parking eye.

I was in my local sainsburys earlier , they are patroled by euro , i noticed a "sainsburys" sign next to the parent and child parking, it states that missuse of these facilities will result in a £50 "FINE".

If enough complaints are recieved by them then they will eventualy have to do something. otherwise they will lose all credebility.

 

The BPA are trying to push thenselfes as the regulator of the private parking industry and trying to give this industry an air of respectability, so they must eventualy act on complaints , otherwise they will lose credability.

I know.

But i realy do believe that if we can force their hand we can show them up to the wider public for what they actual are.

They are trying to legitimise this whole private parking [problem] and if we sit back and do nothing then they may succede.

Somebody over on MSE has already done that a few months ago. Here is the letter sent to Sainsbury's:-

 

[iDear Sirs,

 

I recently visited your newly-opened High Wycombe store, and very nice it is too.

 

However, I feel I must have missed some news bulletins recently, because when I drove into the car park there, I noticed signs saying that if drivers parked in the disabled bays without a blue badge, they would be "fined" £50. The same condition applied to parent & child bays.

 

Now as any clued up person knows, fines can only be issued by the Courts, Police, or local Councils. For a private company to claim to be able to fine someone, would be a contravention of Section 2 of the Fraud Act 2006.

 

I can only assume, therefore, that since these signs must have been approved by some legal top bananas in Sainsbury's, and they clearly wouldn't want to be committing fraudulent acts, that J Sainsbury has recently passed into public ownership and is now a sub-division of the Ministry of Agriculture or some such government organisation.

 

Please could you confirm this?[/i]

similar thing, when they were putting sitckers on cars about its fine to park if you have a blue badge but we will fine you if you dont, read his response

 

 

 

email ping pong

 

first email to them

 

User's Comments: I suggest you sort your recent advertising that you will FINE users parking in disabled bays, and the term Penalty Charge Notice

 

you CANNOT by LAW Issue a FINE or use the term Penalty Charge Notice only the Council or a POLICE officer can issue a PCN , and only a Court of LAW can issue a FINE, if the Private company's you are using have advised you on using these terms , then once again get legal advice

many complaints are being send to the ASA regarding this

may I suggest you take URGENT legal ADVICE on these matters

what you are actually doing is issuing a civil invoice which has no value nor can you demand payment of it

 

the Ministry Of Justice has also been informes of your claims , sent direct to Bridget Prentice MP , who is the Minister

 

their reply, note the comment they can on signs use the word Fine

 

Thank you for your email about our parking charges. I am sorry that you believe our charges to be illegal.

I have spoken today with Euro Car Parks and discussed the legality of the usage of the term "fine" and "PCN".

You are correct in your belief that the term "fine" cannot be used to describe the physical article that would be placed on the car if it was improperly parked. This can legally be referred to as a "PCN" as the car park is on privately owned land. We can however use the term fine on our signs in the car park as this is simply a warning for the customer, not printed on the documentation of the PCN.

As the car park is on private land and run by Euro Car Parks, Sainsbury's take no part in the issuing of charges. If you would like to challange a charge you have recieved you would have to go through Euro Car Parks.

I hope I have been able to clarify this issue for you. If you have any further comments or questions you can contact me again or contact Euro Car Parks directly.

 

 

Kind regards

 

Michael *************

Customer Manager

 

to which a reply was sent ,but never got an answer

 

 

you cannot by LAW use the term FINE or PENALTY on anything nor imply that a FINE / PENALTY will be imposed, not just restricted to the piece of JUNK paper placed on a car

 

you are putting out a leaflet that uses the word FINE which is also unlawful, with the words its fine to park with a blue badge , etc

 

you are the Landowner and you are responsible for your agents Euro Car Parks actions, and are answerable under Civil /Criminal law for their actions

 

in law you can only claim the loss caused by the so called parking, which in a free car park is nil, there is NO LEGAL JUSTIFICATION for any amount that Euro Car Parks demands, therefore no legal right to demand any form of payment, any sign placed on your property DOES NOT form a Contract to park UNLESS you have physical proof that the customer had agreed to accept the contract, just driving past a sign post does not FORM A CONTRACT, which in many cases has been the downfall of PPC's in they few County Court claims PPC's have tried

 

Euro Car Parks and other PPC's who have on a very few occasions braved it and tried to enforce in the County Court have lost in 99.9999% of the cases on that alone

 

you cannot legally use the term PCN to imply it is a legal document PCN refers to a Council / Police NOTICE , then say its a Parking Charge Notice , it is "false representation"

 

as for appeals Euro Car Parks running the appeals is a conflict of interest, Euro Car Parks are there to make money they don't uphold challenges

 

the further actions of Euro Car Parks in attempts to enforce their ill-gotten gains is tantamount to harassment and intimidation threats of county court judgements , using threats in letters and making phone calls to the person such as we will be - sending bailiff's - credit rating being affected for 6 years - sending someone to your door to collect the money and investigate your financially situation

 

and the stupidity of your were on / over the white line is a [problem] to raise a fee, you are loosing customers because of this, and many customers will not even use your stores because of the Parking Scams you allow in your car parks

 

Also I suggest you check the USE OF A BLUE BADGE , a blue Badge has no legal standing on Private property therefore to raise a charge for not displaying it is yet another [problem]

 

I suggest you take legal advice , and not from Euro Car Parks urgently

 

who does come first in your Company the "CUSTOMER being able to shop" or Euro Car Parks [causing problems] your customers,
