    • if you wish to put up everything like    your defence claimants WS defendants WS   then im sure those here now and future victims will find it of value   if you read upload carefully you'll see its best to upload each as a separate multipage PDF but ofcourse you'll have to redact each page as a jpg picture 1st before merging each to the relevant multipage pdf .   dx  
    • Thanks I’m happy to put something back ! I didn’t have the courage of my convictions to counter claim even though I was really quite proud of the thoroughness of my court bundle ! i really wanted the opportunity to get into the detail with the judge and felt quite cheated when it ended, but of course I realised that they had just moved on to their next victim  will watch this space 👍  
    • I have created your own topic for this as its import to have it own one but placed a link on the thread you posted on.   you should never counterclaim that exposes you to further cost and rarely succeeds esp if they disc' the claim always best to state in a sep letter you will be seeking costs esp loss of days wages at £90 which most judges allow.   as for an sar, its p'haps always better to issue a cpr 31:14 too or in replacement of, an sar.   well done on your important win
    • My wife has directed me to post on this thread as I have just successfully won against these charlatans   My hearing date was all set at my local court for 31st October 2019 all defence papers were filed and served and frankly I was really looking forward to it! This morning I received a letter from BW legal stating in a one line response that I was to take this letter as a notice of discontinuance whereby the claimant KBT (armtrac) discontinues all of the claim. I am beyond disappointed that I didn’t get my chance to see these idiots across a desk! And that’s it I don’t appear to be able to take this further? I now realise I should of had the courage of my convictions and faith in the advice of others to issue a counterclaim! What I have now in my possession is a file of information which would be Gold-dust to the next person in my position! I feel like I would be able to get some sort of closure if I could pass some of this wisdom on but there are many posters here already and every case is different in its own way The key points in my defence were as follows and useful to anyone ‘caught’ at Sandy Acres. Keep the original parking ticket you purchased and send a copy to KBT with a covering letter ASAP do not identify the driver at any stage of the process!!!!  The blue sign uses the word penalty which is contrary to the IPC codes of practice  The red and white sign has a café open sign in front of it  which obscures it from the drivers view both available to download via Google maps Check the date you receive NTK mine was 71 days Do an SAR and you will get back the pictures of the alleged offence in my case they were of such poor quality you could not tell which way up the ticket was in the photo and in no image they held was there a picture showing the ticket and the vehicle numberplate. They offered no other evidence. Pretty soon you will see the money is being sought escalate until they no longer match the figure on the NTK even if it is sent within 56 days When you see a breakdown of costs for the money being sought it will ultimately include legal costs, typically £60 that the solicitor knows cannot be recovered in Small Claims Court. Personally I am now considering reporting BW legal to the law society or solicitors ombudsman for being party to a process which is fundamentally dishonest, an abuse of process, and a complete waste of court resources?   i am happy to help anyone who needs assistance but rest assured that their case against you relies on you caving in and paying, they have no plan B but will try and make you doubt your ability to defend yourself.   Dont worry about small claims Court, it isn’t crown court, just an office with 3 desks and certainly less stressful than a job interview or meeting with the bank and less at stake.   I got to one week from my court date and they gave up!

Same answer as previously: admit those you are guilty of.

Deny those you are not guilty of.

 

If they decide not to go to court after considering the ones you admit

: they can't prosecute you for them afterwards if they accepted they were taken into consideration.

 

If it goes to court : they can't prosecute you for them afterwards

if they accepted they were taken into consideration by the court.

 

Any not admitted by you the TOC will either accept weren't travel by you,

or may prosecute for (even after the rest of this episode is settled),

if they believe (and can show to the court's satisfaction) that it was you travelling.

Thank you for your answer BazzaS.

 

I am wondering what exactly is 17 (1) all about?

 

Is my case in fact recorded?

Is it a criminal record?

There is an academic difference between TfL's 17(1) and the national railways byelaw's 17(1).

Both state that "No person shall enter a compulsory ticket area on the railway unless he has with him a valid ticket."

 

http://content.tfl.gov.uk/railway-byelaws.pdf

 

https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/4202/railway-byelaws.pdf

 

TfL's Byelaw 23 relates to punishment, as does railways Byelaw 24.

For National railways a Byelaw 17 prosecution can't attract a level 3 fine, but can under TfL's Byelaw.

 

Mind you, if they can demonstrate intent to avoid a fare, both can be prosecuted under s5(3) of the Regulation of Railways Act 1889, which also carries a level 3 fine (or prison, but prison is only an option for a second or subsequent offence).

 

Both Byelaw 17 and RORA s5(3) offences carry (if it goes to court and is found guilty or on guilty plea) a criminal record for eDBS, visa and immigration purposes, or employment where the employment is exempt from the provisions of the Rhabilitation of offenders legislation.

 

The Byelaw offence may not show (as it is "non-recordable") on a DBS or standard disclosure, though.

Agreed : if they accept an administrative settlement / "settle out of court".

This is rare for multiple deliberate Freedom Pass abuse, though.

I think by "time spam" you were being asked about was more "between which dates" rather than "between which hours"

Is it possible to send back the form to the court and negotiate an administrative settlement?

 

 

Will it be late for an administrative settlement if I send the form back with pleading guilty?

Share this post

I don't think it will, Lilliya.

 

My understanding as I said earlier, is that even when a court case is pending, you can continue to negotiate, probably by phone.

 

Even on the day of the court case, people have met the prosecutor and agreed an administrative settlement before the case begins.

Is this the same "getting caught" as you described in the previous thread, where you describe being able to settle out of court?

(If so, why are you posting again?)

 

If this is a new episode : if you "got off light" before - why would you expect them not to prosecute this time?

 

The previous thread said "caught" November 2015, letter from TfL December 2015, and settled in May.

Now you are saying caught in May 2016.

 

So it seems you are confused about the dates, or are on a wind-up, or after getting off light once, decided to abuse a Freedom pass again.

Which is it?

 

Hello BazzaS,

 

This thread (posted in August 2016) was not written by the same person.

I am Liliya = 1st Liliya = caught in November 2015

 

However, Lilliya = 2nd person with double "L" is another person imitating my username.

 

I really thought Consumer Group changed the title of my thread at the beginning.

 

It has nothing to do with me, it is neither the same account nor the same person .... And it is my first case!!!

 

Hi Lilliya,

 

I am sorry, you are confusing people here.

See people are writing more threads not concerning your topic.

 

Why are you imitating my username?

 

I am sure you did it intentionally.

Hi Liliya,

 

I am sorry too that you get involved because of our usernames!

 

Why are you imitating my username?

I am sure you did it intentionally.

 

Why would I do that? are you the only one who is called/uses Liliya?

I am sorry to tell you that, but I have no time to loose for imitating people usernames/names!!!

dx100uk, honeybee13, BazzaS ... Thank you so much for your help I really appreciate it!

 

I have read that asking for an out of court settlement in a direct way is considered as a serious offence .

.. I have no idea how can I ask or convince TFL for an administrative solution ...

 

Do you have an advice in how writing the letter/email TFL in order to convince them for an administrative settlement?

 

 

What is the best way to convince them?

Do you have an advice in how writing the letter/email TFL in order to convince them for an administrative settlement? What is the best way to convince them?

 

There is no guaranteed way to convince them.

 

Freedom Pass abuse is usually prosecuted.

 

Posters seem to want "the magic bullet" letter that guarantees them an administrative settlement, but any "template letter" is likely to be counterproductive. This is because TfL will have seen any "template letter" many times, and it wouldn't be persuasive.

 

So, it needs to be your letter, in your words, tailored to your situation.

What posters can do is set out a framework, and some "do's and dont's"!

 

Do apologise.

Do accept your guilt.

Do highlight that you won't travel ticketless in future

Do stress if a prosecution would adversely affect you more than others, and explain the circumstances why.

Do offer to pay any fares owing, and their administrative costs.

Do highlight if you were truthful and cooperative to their staff.

Highlight any mitigation.

 

Don't blame the staff who dealt with you.

If you are giving any mitigation : don't phrase it in such a way as it looks like you are trying to excuse your behaviour.

Don't lie : if you get caught in a lie, it is almost inevitable they will prosecute.

 

Specifically for your situation : since they have highlighted 68 possible TIC's. Stress you want to be honest, and admit to your wrongdoing:

Highlight the journeys that you admit to (1)

Highlight the journeys you can't be sure about, but think were probably you, and that you'll admit to if they are willing to TIC them, so that you know you haven't left any out (2)

Highlight the ones that weren't you (not in 1) or 2) ) : stress that you want to be open and honest and know that you could have just said "OK, those were me too", but that you realise you did wrong and don't want to compound that by being less than truthful now......

 

At least you can make a start on the letter, and other posters may want to contribute other advice / "Do's and Don'ts".

I agree.

 

 

You want to ask clearly for an administrative settlement.

 

If you "beat around the bush" they may not know what you are asking for.

 

However, you do want to ask (not demand!), and you want to give them reasons why they should consider it (see previous reply).

 

One other factor that may be useful if it applies : are you under 18?
