    • Thanks Andy,  Just need guidance on which boxes (i.e am I disputing the debt, if so why) etc.  Also, do we still need to pay £1 for the copy of the CCA, or can I request it as part of sending in the reply form? Cheers
    • @HP Mum - you've been here a long time and you have certainly been here long enough to know that we regularly ask people to avoid posting solid blocks of text because it makes it very difficult for the site team to engage and also other people who might be interested in what you have to say or maybe even give advice themselves. It's especially difficult using small screens such as telephones and telephone screens are more and more commonly used nowadays. When solid blocks of text are posted by new people, we figure they don't know any better and so we go in and edit the block and introduce proper spacing and punctuation and asked them to avoid doing in future. However you are a seasoned Cagger Your solid block of text is very long and to add to the difficulty, you have used the smaller font. I'm going to remove your post and if you want to post again then please would you bear in mind the interests of the people who are reading and who want to help you. Thank you

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Hello Everyone

 

I would be grateful for and advice or a bit of guidance on how to best handle the following;

 

I have been issued a Parking ticket under the contravention; (01) Parked in a restricted street during prescribed hours. Band B.

 

A picture is worth a thousand words, so here are photos;

http://s590.photobucket.com/albums/ss345/cmguk22/Parking%20Ticket/

 

As you can see my front wheel was parked over a single yellow line (which incidentally does not have a T-bar at either end). The single yellow extends about 10m where it ended and there is an 'End of controlled parking zone' sign. On the reverse of the sign (thus I could not see this) is an 'Entrance to controlled parking zone' sign.

 

However what is bugging me is that there are NO other signs, thus there is no indication where the zone starts/finishes. What is also bugging me is that there is no T-Bar at the end of the yellow line

 

Do I have a leg to stand on?

Hi and welcome to CAG

 

Your picture (2) shows that there is a sign indicating that the CPZ ends. It follows that on the other side, there will be the sign stating that the CPZ starts (as shown in pic 1). Yellow lines are not required within a CPZ so it matters not it has no 'T' bar.

I assume you entered the CPZ from the opposite direction (the way your car is facing) and as such, you must of passed another sign somewhere. If you didn't, you may have grounds for appeal there.

 

Please Note

 

The advice I offer will be based on the information given by the person needing it. All my advice is based on my experiences and knowledge gained in working in the motor and passenger transport industries in various capacities. Although my advice will always be sincere, it should be used as guidence only.

 

I would always urge to seek face to face professional advice for clarification prior to taking any action.

I did enter the CPZ from the other direction, and I did not pass any another sign.

 

Although that's possible, more likely is that you didn't notice the signs at the entry point. The council website should have a map of the CPZ. You need to retrace your exact route and double check that the signs where you entered the CPZ are missing. If they are you have good grounds of appeal.

I have just retraced my route and I can confirm there is NO other signage and by the lack of lampposts / poles etc there does not look to have ever been any. Which begs the question; how many other people have had tickets for the same..

What is behind you car it looks like its unrestricted surely the CPZ is not just 20 long, lol??

 

Your correct, behind my car was unrestricted bay parking, and the yellow line is approx 11-12m long....

I drove north up the A22 (Godstone Road), I then turning a hard right I drove up Downscourt Road.

 

I can see from the Croydon web page that purley is one big Permit Zone, but I have retraced my route to the point I entered the parking zone and a few hundres yards past this point and there are NO signs.

 

I was visiting a friend who lives there, and she confirmed that they do not need permits, she has lived there for the past 3 years.

I've looked on Google Street View (which can be out of date).

 

The CPZ should begin just before Dale Road and there are no signs to be seen on Godstone Road.

 

I would appeal on the grounds that the contravention did not occur.

Detail the route you took and enclose a copy of the CPZ map from their website and photos of Godstone Road between Sunnydene Road and Dale Road.

Ask the council to give the exact location of the entry signs to the CPZ on Godstone Road.

http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2002/3113/contents/made look at diagram 1017 on page 172 that will tell you what you need to know NO TBAR NO LINE and was there two CPZ signs one on each side of the road as your photos don't show both sides, rules of a cpz state there should be TWO SIGNS ONE ON EACH SIDE OF THE ROAD but again look it up for your self on the above link on page 105
