    • What should you do? Totally ignore them. Next time you are there take photographs of Athena's notice at the entrance to the car park plus the position of the others as well as any difference between the T&Cs of their signs. Also a picture of their payment meter as the T&Cs there are often different from the signs. Check with the local council to see if Athena have permission to erect signs and ANPR cameras under the Town & Country [Advertisements] Regulations -they are often online these days. Also ignore any future correspondence from them and their unregulated debt collectors and do not be afraid of ever escalating fees most of which have no basis in Law. The time to come back to us is if they send you a letter of claim where a snotty letter to them may discourage them.Also read other threads on here to get an idea of the numties you are dealing with. One amoeba has more intelligence than all the car parking rogues together. It is still worthwhile contacting Lidl even without your receipt and especially where you have a record of regular visits to them.
    • First, I'm a bit surprised that your local police force has the manpower and time to waste chasing up a complaint from a member of the public that a motability car's paperwork may not be in order, bearing in mind that most forces can't be bothered to follow up reported burglaries, if stories in the popular press are to be believed.  But if that's what the police officer has told you, that's what he's told you.   If you want to follow up his suggestion to make a complaint, check your local force's website for how to do so.  Or (bearing in mind the history of problems that you've had before) write straight to the Chief Constable (website again).   Simply say you want to make a complaint about the number of times your daughter (or whoever) has been stopped by the police for no apparent reason.  Give a list of when and where this has happened and what the outcome was (presumably that the police took no further action).  I would also add that in the latest incident the police officer actually suggested making a complaint about the number of stops.  Not only do you (or your daughter or son or whoever it is) find this police action to be extremely distressing, but you also consider it a waste of scarce police resources.   Ask for an explanation as to why this keeps happening and ask for an assurance that the police will stop doing it.   You may also want to add (see what others advise about this) that the police officer in the latest incident also told you that they had received a call from someone saying that the car's paper work "might not be in order".  Say that you are concerned that whoever made this false allegation is wasting police time.  (You may want to think carefully about this as it may not improve your daughter's relationship with her neighbour!  If the allegation came from the neighbour.)   Those are my initial thoughts but it's a bit late to be thinking clearly.  See what others suggest rather than just relying on my suggestions.   [The letter really needs to come from your daughter (or whichever family member keeps being stopped) and not you, unless you can make it perfectly clear in the letter who it is that is being stopped etc. and that you are complaining on their behalf.  Is that clear?]
    • yes I missed out an important word there didn't I 'properly' ..
    • And dx what success have you personally had when dealing with cases for people in the county court.... when pointing out the above   I have asked you several times for your direct court room experience. Yet it hasnt been forthcoming    Please prove your statement that vcs lose most defended cases ? Again what you state doesnt stand up for the reality of the court circuit

hello all , ive just been sent a letter from the dvla to inform me they are taking court action against me for failing to notify a change of keeper ( the v5c was returned but no surprise there eh :roll: ).

i previously wrote to them explaining i had in fact sent off the v5c all filled in and i would robustly defend this if i was taken to court i also asked for full details of all lost or misplaced post within the dvla but as i expected i did not recieve this information .

my question is do i need to send a payment to recieve this information as i think i should from memory is it a £1 or some such amount .

also how long do they have to send me such information as i will be useing this as part of my defence in the forthcoming court action any help here would be appreciated .

I have been stung twice by the DVLA, was actually taken to court for no reason but because DVLA never responded to my registered post letters I had to travel all the way to Swansea Magistrates just to plead not guilty! DVLA phone number is completely pointless and their staff are so rude even if your trying to enquiry if they have received your letters.

 

DVLA is a mess and Google is flooded by people who have had massive issues with this pathetic government agency!

I recall seeing something similar to this on a previous thread. DVLA lost the case because they couldn't show they hadn't received it. I believe but there was another legal issue to it as well and it might be worth looking through previous DVLA threads but I seem to remember the court queried whether DVLA could actually bring an action at all on the issue. Does anyone else remember this?
