If you are convinced that the tickets were correctly issued and do not want to challenge them then I think your only option will be to invite them to take you to court where you will put your case and circumstances to the judge who will no doubt then order that you can pay by installments. Upon hearing that, they may re-consider. As you are disbaled, they should at least give you an opportunity to provide evidence that you cannot pay in one go. Hopefully others may give opinions on this.

Council tickets don't go to court, if they are not paid the council apply to the Traffic Enforcement Centre who then authorise them to instruct bailiffs.

And what happens then if the OP (who is disabled) dosn't have the means to pay? There must be a process available for such situations.

Don't know Ray, but to get to that stage will no doubt incurr the OP with signifitant additional costs. Clearly he/she is accepting the tickets but cannot pay the total cot in one go. Under the circumstances, I would of thought that a judge would need to decide what the OP can or cannot afford to pay. I don't belive that baliffs have (or should have) the right to make those decissions when dealing with vunerable people.

This matter needs to go to the right staff in the parking dept.

 

If you are able to make payment bit by bit, write to the council, briefly outlining your income and expenses. Propose a reasonable payment plan - not a silly one like £1 a fortnight. It should then be looked at properly by someone sensible. (We can hope!!)

 

They would probably not accept a total inability to pay, but should be cooperative if they see the situation is as you say. There's no point in them letting it go to bailiffs if you can't pay anyway, so I expect they will agree.

Trouble is that if the tickets are not paid it goes direct from the council to bailiffs, the matter doesn't go before a judge.

 

Mmm, then there is something wrong with the system. If you didn't pay a FPN, you would have your day in court. The same as if you didn't pay a civil debt then the debtor could take you to County Court. I'm not condoning people who flout the parking regs who are deliberately avoiding paying but in this case (from what we are being told), it appears that the OP is holding his hands up but is in 'vunerable' position as he/she is disabled. Surely in such circumstances, there must be a procededure to follow where by (if necessary) the matter can be decided by an independant adjudicator to assess the 'offender's' financial circumsatnces so an agreement can be reached about paying by installments. I don't see how it can be right that the matter simply gets passed to bailiffs if the OP cannot pay in full. Perhaps the OP should consult CAB about it to see if they can help.

Do you pay council tax? You would have been better using the council tax money to pay the parking fine and then talking to the council to make different arrangements for the tax.

 

They tend to be accommodating over council tax, but there's no leeway with parking fines.
