A short extract from the article:

 

A Gateshead motorist may be the worst parker in Britain - after racking up more than 600 tickets.

 

Figures obtained through a Freedom of Information request have revealed that a vehicle in Gateshead has received 653 parking tickets- owing Gateshead Council more than £55,000 in fines.

 

Another vehicle in the area has been given 283 parking tickets, with £23,985 owed in fines relating to the vehicle.

 

It was followed by one in Newcastle that has been ticketed 272 times, owing £16,454 in fines.

 

I little known fact is that a motorist is considered a 'Persistent Evader' if he has 'three or more' unpaid penalty charge notices and there are specific regulations that apply to such cases and most importantly, the obligation to remove the vehicle. Many people have been caught by this regulation (in particular in London).

 

The vast majority of 'Persistent Evaders' have vehicles that are worth just a couple of hundred pound and they could not care less if it was taken.

'Persistent evader?' A wonderful term that immediately places the accused into a position of 'offender' but which in reality has no meaning whatsoever.

 

Persistent evader of what? Three or more accusations of alleged contraventions all based on a presumption of guilt?

 

To those reading - you all owe me £10 - because i say so.

 

Proof? How imperious of you to ask as my accusation is quite enough in law. Ignore me three times and you automatically become a persistent evader of nothing more than an unproven accusation, however the law is with me

 

Perhaps we should stand up to that.

Can you point out the "specific regulations" that apply, I would be very interested to read them?

8.116 When parked in contravention, a persistent evader’s vehicle should be

subject to the strongest possible enforcement following the issue of the

PCN and confirmation of persistent evader status. This is likely to

involve immobilisation or removal.

 

Not having a very good day are you pote :-)

DO NOT PAY UPFRONT FEES TO COLD CALLERS PROMISING TO WRITE OFF YOUR DEBTS

DO NOT PAY UPFRONT FEES FOR COSTLY TELEPHONE CONSULTATIONS WITH SO CALLED "EXPERTS" THEY INVARIABLY ARE NOTHING OF THE SORT

BEWARE OF QUICK FIX DEBT SOLUTIONS, IF IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT INVARIABLY IS

Well looking around i think the measure is included in a few by-laws, but what's in a name.

The fact is that this measure is available to the authority under these circumstances, this kind of trivia is really only of interest to people like you who are trying to score some kind of point. Certainly not worth further comment from me.

Not mandatory and the word "May" is used so doesn't have to be followed.

 

 

 

(2)In performing those duties a local traffic authority shall have regard to any such guidance

 

THe word "may" refers to the guidence being produced. It has.

When did most councils worry about "Government Guidance" its about revenue mostly and what they can get away with.
