My daughter is being prosecuted for being on a Greater Manchester Tram 'not having a valid ticket enabling her to do so'

- Reg 4 (1) (a) Greater Manchester Metrolink System Byelaws

 

She had a pass, ( left at home in error) and can prove it ,

but was too late responding to being issued with a 'Standard Fare' ( GM equivalent of the penalty fare)

 

Does anyone know if 'having a ticket' must mean physical possession at the time?

 

Can anyone help with a contact group similar to Passenger Focus- who don't deal with trams.

 

Any other suggestions gratefully received

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Hi

hearing date not till 2nd Feb

she hasn't pleaded yet

It is all a bit annoying, and she sent proof of her weekly pass back in November,

 

 

and the phone representative had said that it would be sufficient even after the 21 day period

- but then she heard nothing until yesterday when the summons arrived

 

I fear that it may be a strict liability offence and that 'having a ticket' means having it on you

 

but haven't been able to find a definitions section on the bylaws

thanks

it is a case of must have the ticket on you yes

 

 

but.

if this is the first and only offence

 

 

theres nowt to stop her sending a pleading letter

asking to settle out of xourt still

 

 

offer to pay all reasonable admin fess etc etc

to avoid a prosecution as i'e it will ruin her future if she got a record

 

 

see various threads here for examples of what to write

 

 

it is not too late
