    • Thank you @honeybee13. I will try to write one. I read here that even without the out of court settlement some people  have not received the  criminal record but only a fine. I don't know what to think anymore. 
    • Thanks I appreciate your time How does this sound?   On FRIDAY 29TH May I used your service to send a parcel under the above reference number. The parcel did not arrive at the destination and after several exchanges with your customer service staff, I was told that the item was lost. I was also told that I would not be entitled to full compensation for my items despite having provided you with receipts for these items as I had only opted for the standard £20 compensation. I did not opt for this compensation – as you will know, there is no option to decline this basic cover when scheduling a parcel. Furthermore, it is grossly unfair for a consumer to have to insure against your negligence and contrary to the unfair terms provisions in the Consumer Rights Act. I'm quite sure that you are fully aware that any term you might have in your contract which relies on customers having insurance against your negligent handling of their items causing them to be lost is an unfair term and is unenforceable. I notice that you systematically rely on such terms to deprive your customers of the correct compensation and effectively to protect you from the consequences of your negligent handling of your customers’ sent items. If you force this to a court hearing – you can be certain that I shall be producing evidence from many different sources to show that you systematically lose parcels and decline liability on spurious grounds which are unfair and unenforceable. The contents of my parcel were worth £160. There was also the cost of the postage which was £9.92. The full amount I am claiming is therefore £169.92. You may email me at ____________ in order to arrange this payment. If I do not have reimbursement in full within 14 days then I shall issue a claim in the County Court to recover this money from you plus interest and without any further notice. Yours faithfully _____
    • Hi.   SJP = Single Justice Procedure. Here's some reading for you https://www.gov.uk/single-justice-procedure-notices   If you want to ask for an out of court settlement, you need to deal with TfL. You could write to them if you have a contact name, there are examples of letters in threads here.   HB
    • Hi,  I have sent email requesting information as to why my original email was not actioned. I did have the case number in the subject line on my email.  I only got a letter from registry trust, nothing else from courts or Shoosmiths thanks 
    • @dx100uk  I have received only the charge for this journey.  Sorry for my ignorance but what is a SJP?  the charge has been made at 21 june  2020 but I received this only yesterday. Now they ask me to make my plea and I have 21 days to do so, but I want to try an out of court settlement. There is not any court date on the papers they sent me now though.

    • 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

Last September my sister went to Liverpool John Lennon Airport to pick her friend up. She pulled up at the side of the access road instead of going into the car park and was stopped for less than a minute. She received a PCN from a PPC and I knocked the attached letter up for her. They scrapped the charge but said that the byelaw was no longer in place. I hope this helps others.

Attached to the last post in the above thread is a pdf of the letter that I sent which persuaded them to take no further action. Please feel free to use it should you wish.

Well common sense prevailed. Had to wait around at the courts for 6 hours whilst the judge got through the other 5 cases brought by ANPR. What a bunch of jokers these people are, very unprofessional and know very little about the law. I think the highlight of listening to them stumble their way through trying to make a case against me was when their 'legal' representative tried to quote another case similar to mine.... 'Its like that other case, you know the one, o whats its called - you will know better than me your honour what was it called again?' - Brilliant preparation! They also produced a document that had quite clearly been forged as the date on it proceeded their contract by 7 years. They called me by the wrong name throughout, the judge 'Your Honour' a number of times, constantly repeated their points, didn't listen properly to responses from the judge and this went on and on for 50 minutes.*

As the hearing went so well and I was feeling brave, I pulled out my invoice and counter claimed - their faces were a picture! Their representative then tried to claim they had made every effort to resolve and I had been rude and abusive on the telephone. The judge awarded loss of earnings and travel costs.*

 

 

Overall on the day they lost more than they collected so it is no wonder this is the best legal representation they can afford.*

 

 

I would like to thank everybody who replied to my posts, without your advice I don't think the day would have gone so smoothly.

POWER TO THE PEOPLE!!

Successfully used the template from on here to contest a fine from Smart Parking Ltd.

 

They made a swift response of dropping the fine. Now just to try and get the admin fee back from the leasing company for processing the fine. :(

not a specific thread, but a bit of a funny (found on the surf) where a rival parking co. offered to pay another company's customers' 'fine/charge'. the fine was then (apparently as a result) cancelled. :)

if all else fails, cld try a rival company :)

Assessor supporting rational for decision

As the appellant has denied being the driver at the time of the alleged parking event, I would expect the operator to provide evidence of strict compliance with the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012. The operator has failed to provide a copy of the Notice to Keeper and I cannot confirm that the requirements laid out in PoFA have been met. As such, I conclude that the operator cannot transfer liability for theparking charge*Notice to the appellant and, accordingly, I must allow the appeal.

Was at court this morning, MIL sent two reps, Judge looked at photos, asked me if it was my car, I replied yes, he looked at the signage, so small on the car photo was not viewable, the one picture that was viewable was taken on the South West Coast path with Sea in the background. "Your client never learns" the judge says to MILs reps and*dismissed*the case. In about 20 mins in all, no costs. A big thank you to all for your reassurance, I was very confident going in, no nerves at all, and thats thanks to the confidence given me by you all. It is my Birthday as well so started the day nicely for me
