    • 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.

Hi

 

I am hoping someone, anyone can please give me the answer to my question. I have recieved a parking ticket by the LA for contravention 27, parking adjacent to a lowered footway. The ticket said I had done this in a controlled parking zone but the area I parked was a council estate and has two 'zone ENDS' signs on entering. I thought 'zone ENDS' means it is not a controlleed parking area. Have I got this wrong? Is the ticket valid or should I appeal?

I thought parking across a dropped kerb was automatically a fine? Regardless of what zone.

 

If nothing else, I would have expected a scratch or two along your car by the disabled person unable to get off the kerb. Pathetic parking in my eyes as that is the only way some wheel chair users and some elderly folk can get of a kerb. Just my opinion.

Thank you for your reply but I didn't really come on here to be judged. We all make mistakes and I had only parked in this manner as there were no other spaces around and I was desperate for the bathroom. Anyway, I'm sure you're one of those perfect people who have never made an error of judgement in their lives. I'm sure if you were in my position you would have chosen to p***s in your pants, rather than slightly inconvenience a disabled/elderley person. Hope you have a good evening.

Hello honeybee13

 

Thank you for your reply. Yes, the ticket said contravention 27, parked adjacent to a lowered footpath in a controlled parking zone.

 

I think it's more likely that it says special enforcement area, which is nothing to to do with a CPZ

As I understand, the local authority can only issue PCNs inside a CPZ. Outside of that, it falls to the police. Someone correct me if that is wrong.

 

Could you give the exact location, so we can look on Google Maps.

Yes you are wrong, which isn't like you, are you having a bad day lol? You are getting Controlled parking zones confused with special enforcement areas, civil enforcement areas and special parking areas (essentially the same thing depending on the regulations used). A CPZ is an area of controlled parking where all parking is controlled by some sort of restriction and can be enforced by either the Council or the Police depending on who has the designated authority to do so. The SEAs, CEAs and SPAs are enforced by the local authority.
