    • So there's no tax payable anyway.... nothing to see here!  
    • are you actually going to benefit out of this at all?   I was slightly getting confused here earlier, and forgot you said you are the claimant because you are suing the defendant for the cost of a hire car that you personally haven't had to pay for ?    
    • I received PCN's from TFL and Southwark. 08/06/19 I spoke with Southwark regarding PCN's and thought it was sorted.   Didn't hear anything back until 17/01/20 when my car was taken by Marston EA. TFL & Marston say they sent letters but have no proof.   I emailed TFL (19th June) through their online portal and again, via email on (14th Nov 2019) < the email on 14th has been viewed 17 times but no reply. (so I have proof of contact, they don't) I asked them if they send via recoded delivery/signed for but they do not.   When my car was taken, I received a call from a friend saying it's on the back of a truck, outside his house (which is round the block from mine). I ran round there and the EA was aggressive, shouted at me and refused to show ID/why he had taken my car.   I complained to Marston who denied it but sent me some of the footage. I complained again through resolver.co.uk and Marston lied again. Then I sent ALL my info and evidence etc.   took a few weeks and called me saying sorry and taking full responsibly for their EA's aggressive behaviour etc. TFL are still refusing to comment.   Marston offered me £250 as a goodwill payment but obviously the pain and trauma causes - that doesn't cover it. The police were called when they took my car cause I was so distressed and having a panic attack etc.   I've requested the phone call recording where they accepted guilt and that they had handled everything badly, including lying about the video on Resovler. I feel like Marston know they've done wrong, but TFL still aren't in the know. (to my knowledge)   Also, I requested info from TFL via whatdotheyknow.com and TFL did a data protection breach by uploading my full details including address etc. to a public forum (and I didn't even ask anything specific about my case) so I feel like they did this out of spite/anger.   the www.whatdotheyknow.com team reprimanded them for this and advised me to complain. I also paid £800+ to retrieve my vehicle and I have completed the OOT which was denied. I tried to take it to court but when I tried to do the 'low income' thing but they wanted bank statements which I couldn't get... then corona happened.   I've downloaded/uploaded the ZIP file from Resolver convos.   Regarding the footage: my initial message to them, I made myself seem unaware and 'stupid'   they wrote a generic reply telling me that 'the footage is fine and the EA did nothing wrong' they can't uphold my complaint,   then once they sent that; I sent them the CIVEA rulebook and timestamps in the video to show that they were in the wrong and had further lied in their official response (which must be illegal)   when they received the in-depth response, I think they got scared, went away for a couple weeks   tried to get the nice sounding woman to call me up, say sorry and be really nice then offer me a measly £250.   She also tried to rush me into agreeing.   
    • No it was about under by a couple grand.    Cheers

Kilometre Charging System in Belgium

From April 1st 2016, all heavy goods vehicles of more than 3.5 tonnes must have a working On Board Unit (OBU) in Belgium.

 

An OBU is only required if the tractor unit has a gross vehicle weight (GVW) of over 3.5 tonnes. The point of reference for the definition of the weight that needs to be registered in the system is the Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR).

 

This toll will be levied on motorways and a number of regional and municipal roads. The OBU must be switched on whenever you use a Belgian road. The system is based on the ‘user pays’ principle. This means that everyone pays a fair contribution for using the roads.

 

In order to ensure a smooth introduction and allow users enough time to get ready, Satellic is making the OBUs available to you from October 1st 2015. We just ask you to pay a deposit of €135 per OBU which will be reimbursed when you return the OBU undamaged.

 

Satellic will collect the toll on behalf of the Flemish, Walloon and Brussels-Capital regions.

 

How does the system work?

 

1 Every domestic or foreign heavy goods vehicle over 3.5 tonnes on Belgian roads must have a working OBU from April 1st 2016.

 

2 The OBU detects where the vehicle is and which route it is following, via satellite signals.

 

3 The system adapts the road charge to the type of road.

 

4 The OBU calculates the toll to be paid. The tariffs depend on the maximum authorised vehicle weight, the Euro emission class and the type of road. The toll is calculated according to how many kilometres are driven and where.

 

5 The owner receives an overview of the amount to be paid. The amount due is paid to Satellic, which transfers the toll to the three Belgian regions according to the use of the road network. 6 Fixed, flexible and mobile checks across Belgium verify whether the heavy goods vehicles have a working OBU.

It will be interesting to see how well this system works.

It's actually about time that the UK abolished road tax and used this sort of system instead so that charges are related to use, not just a fixed rate.

Incidentally, the roads in Belgium are rubbish, so I hope they use the money to do some repairs.
