    • Not sure about the lease read through all the documents i have and couldnt find anything about parking. Contacted the management Office to get a copy sent to me. When i complained to them about the ticket they told me to appeal so they clearly don't care.      and yes it's a gated underground parking area with key fob entry. 
    • The coronavirus pandemic has thrown many countries into recession - but what exactly is it and how could it affect you? View the full article
    • Oh and before bed   Officially leaked statements about a PHE report claiming that a UK study will say there is little evidence of children transmitting Covid.   Leakers stats look impressive until you realise he's on Johnson's SAGE so makes you think - huh - hows that then when all the science I've seen says different, and there are a number of reports of spreads in schools across the world from schools that had opened.   Then, little as the information 'leaked' is, you see   "largest studies in the world on coronavirus in schools" and then "The study was carried out in 100 institutions in the UK and is expected to be published later this year. About 20,000 pupils and teachers in 100 schools across England were tested to monitor the spread of the disease up to the end of the summer term – which runs from April-July in Britain."   Then you click. That averages 200 pupils and staff per 'institution' checked We dont know what these institutions are, but I think over 200 is the average for infants schools. Other schools tend to be FAR larger. Did they test everyone at each institution, or just some ??? we don't know yet - they are choosing not to leak that - Wonder why?   We currently understand that younger children (pre teenage) seem to present few/less symptoms  (statistically) but large increases in teenager covid has been reported as lockdowns ease and they start to meet more.   I know my OH's grandson (mother a nurse) has remained at school in classes one third or less that normal, with the majority of kids having front line worker parents - so well aware of the discipline and hygiene necessary. We know the schools maintain distancing, monitoring and maintenance which would be IMPOSSIBLE in normal class sizes.   So in a lock down situation, with class sizes significantly lower than normal (highly aware front-line workers kids mainly), increased distancing and cleaning made possible by SIGNIFICANTLY smaller class sizes - Has maybe resulted in no great evidence of covid spread perhaps?   Well Whoopy do. Lets ramp the class sizes back up to 30+ and see what happens ..     Lets let the mail lead the way Coronavirus infection rates are rising in ALL age groups under 65, Public Health England data shows with biggest surge in under-fives which 'should be watched very carefully' https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8615423/Coronavirus-infection-rates-rising-age-groups-65-Public-Health-England-data-shows.html     and the ONS stats showing how similar the stats are (a statistically significant  difference can be very little actual difference)   https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/healthandsocialcare/conditionsanddiseases/articles/coronaviruscovid19infectionsinthecommunityinengland/july2020     Notes: These statistics refer to infections reported in the community, by which we mean private households. These figures exclude infections reported in hospitals, care homes or other institutional settings.  
    • i understand and agree you should write a formal letter of complaint about the email by royal mail.   i also think you should totally dispute the arrears balance, esp as it goes back so long   send them an sar and add to the text in it that you want statements/bills dating back to the gb energy a/c.
    • When you see the reports coming out that serco was involved from the earliest stages apparently to give expertise   and that resulted in 18 million plus people coming back into the UK untested from hotspots .. and then even the general advice to self isolate after they had travelled across the UK home being withdrawn in the run-up to the lock down   That went well says cummings

    • 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

Hi, new on here.

I just wanted to ask if i have a chance to challenge this PCN.

I parking on what i thought was a unused old single yellow line that is aboutthree meters long.

I say unused because the council but in double yellow lines which stop about acar length from the end of the old SYL. The DYL has a end bar and the SYL whichcontinues from it also has an end bar. There is also a sign which i think meansclearway (round red circle with red diagonal with blue back ground) that says'Mon - Sat 8am - 630pm' which is positions at the end of the DYLs.

I have learns on here that you don’t need a sign for DYLs solets assume the council will say that he sign is for the SYL and so perhapsthat sign post only refers to the single yellow line, but then why is it notlocated at the end of the single yellow line or the direction of itsenforcement indicated on the sign? And if the old single yellow line was meantto be retained in force, then why does it not have a start bar?

 

Pictures available if needed.

 

All opinions welcome as I feel I should challenge them onthis one.

The way you describe it, I can't see anything wrong. You are right, the council will say the sign applies to the SYL as it does. A single yellow line usually has a sign. The one you describe, blue circle with red bar, means no waiting (ie, no parking), and it states when. This is correct.

 

It is a little odd that it's at one end of the SYL, but it can only be placed where practical. I am not sure what you mean by the SYL not having a "start bar"?

these seems to apply to my case..? take from http://www.dft.gov.uk/pgr/roads/tss/tsmanual/trafficsignsmanualchapter5.pdf

 

PROHIBITION OF WAITING MARKINGS

20.3 The markings consist of either a single or a

double continuous yellow line laid at approximately

250 mm from the edge of the carriageway. The

double line (diagram 1018.1) indicates that waiting

of vehicles on that side of the road is prohibited at

any time during a period of at least four consecutive

months. The sign to diagram 637.3 is used only if the

time period is at least four but less than twelve

months. The single line (diagram 1017) indicates that

the prohibition applies for some lesser time (of day,

week or year). A transverse mark must be placed at

each end of a line, where one type of line changes to

another (see figure 20-1), where it abuts a bay

marking or a zig-zag line and at a point where a

vertical sign indicates the time period changes, but

the road marking remains the same. The restriction

imposed by these markings applies from the centre of

the road to the highway boundary on the side of the

road that the marking is laid (including any lay-bys).

Hi.

 

Your photos don't seem to work. Can you try posting them again?

 

The regulations you quote say: "A transverse mark must be placed at each end of a line, [or] where one type of line changes to another"

Does the place you parked fit that description? This is what you said: "in double yellow lines which stop about a car length from the end of the old SYL. The DYL has a end bar and the SYL whichcontinues from it also has an end bar" - it is not clear if this agrees or not. We do need photos.

"A transverse mark must be placed at each end of a line, [or] where one type of line changes to another"

 

There is a traverse mark one end, where the SYL stops, and a traverse line at the other, where it meets the DYL. So it is correct.

Hi

My understanding is that the SYL should have a T-Bar (transverse mark) "transverse mark must be placed at each endof a line, where one type of line changes to another".

 

 

By this I think itmeans that the SYL should start with a t-bar and then end with (its own) t-bar, and then in my case the DYL should startwith (its own) t-bar and end with its own t-bar.

 

The reason for thisis because different restrictions are enforceable “indicates that the prohibition applies for some lesser time”.

Why bother asking for advice if you are just going to disagree with the advice given, which is 100% correct??

The markings look valid, if the signage is also, I don't see the problem.. Do you have pictures of the signs?

That infuriates me as well, if you're asking people for advice why, when it is not what you want to hear (probably because that's wrong) ignore it. It's rude.

Just to clarify the situation you are correct every yellow line should end in a T bar to indicate the end of the restriction. The T bar is placed at both ends of the yellow line as required and there is a T bar at the end of the double yellows as required which one do you think is missing? Even if you follow your argument that both single and double need their own T bars (which is wrong by the way) how are you going to prove it is the single line that is missing its T bar rather than the DYL missing its T bar unless you interview the painter and ask him which one he painted?

Thank you green_and_mean, you[/url] have understood what i was trying to say..! I was about to give up because of the flack i was getting from some others.

Question 1: why is it wrong to think that both SYL and DYL must terminate with t-bars?

Question 2: Could i prove the t-bar at the middle were both lines meet does not belong to the SYL because it does not comply with TSRGD (1017) Road Markings (see image)..?

Sorry I don't see how they fail to comply both lines do terminate with T bar? If you are saying its not 100% the same as the picture that is because the picture is of a single or double line ending where there is no other restriction, using that logic that it must match the picture it would be impossible to have yellow lines around a bend because the picture is a straight line!

Just for the benefit of myself, I have drawn out what I think(from reading the TSRGD) the layout of DYL and SYL were they meet (as they aretwo different parking restrictions) should look. (see image)

If I’m wrong, then I’m wrong. Just enlighten me and I’ll geton with paying the fine...

Ok, i get it now. The lines joint and use the one t-bar. That means i'm busted then and will have to cough up.. Thanks for your help...

 

Do you think i could chance my luck with this?I believe this PCN has been issued incorrectly. When Ipulled into that street there was a van parked there with a space in front ofit in which I parked. The sign post had a bag over it with the word suspendedon it. I asked the builders in the van who were fixing the shop on the corner,what the suspended bag meant and they said the council place them over parkingrestriction signs that they are not using for different reasons. When Ireturned the builders and their van had gone, the bag was not over the signanymore and a parking attendant putting a ticket on the car. I explained to himwhat had happened and he said it was nothing to do with him and that I was towrite into you. I’m not sure what tomake of it but I think I have been caught up with whatever [problem] those builderswere doing to avoid the parking restrictions.

If you send that letter you have a better than zero chance that they will cancel it. Better to appeal than not, I think.
