    • and it will be also now written off under age related criteria anyway.
    • @dx100ukThanks for this! I'm still not clear if I'm facing more than 6 points on my license though. Can you explain any further please? When I accept the 2nd speeding ticket, will they just charge me £100 and 3 points, or will they be more severe consequences since that offense took place the following day of the 1st offense? Similarly, when I accept the 3rd offense, will they look at my record or just charge me with the £100 fine and 3 points? @Man in the middleI've been searching the forum and you seem very knowledgeable. Would you mind giving a look at my query please? Thanks in advance!!
    • Yes of course. That's why it says cc:: BIg Motoring World at the bottom. Don't imagine that this solves the issue. It doesn't. He not have to force the finance company and big motoring world to accept the rejection to give your money back. I suggest that you get the letter off tomorrow. And let us know what you hear but on Friday you should then send a threat to the finance company.   Have a look what I have said here about your options and read the whole thread as well.  
    • Been perusing the actual figures on the polls above wondering where the '16% claimed for deform comes from? I understand that there are 'weighted' end results based on secret calculations ...   Probably going to repeat this later, but remember that the ukip/brexit/reform/deform party has ALWAYS had poll speculation FAR better than their actual  performance at elections - by large margins. SO: The labor and Tory votes come largely from simply the people who say they will vote for them - sorted Lab 43% Tory 20%, with maybe another small 1-2% coming from the weightings of the 'not sures' Greens largely get what is declared from 'other' , although with another declared green bit from the 'pressed' question   So as the share of the voting displayed in 'other' granted to reform/deform is around 11%, where does the '16% too often being reported come from? Seems that reform has been granted as beneficiary of effectively ALL the don't knows and wont says, who when pressed didn't actually declare for someone else ... effectively adding 40%+ to their reported polling % - rather strange given their consistent under-performance compared to polling - or perhaps that is the cause of the higher rating eh?   Now I admit the possibility (probability?) of wingers being ashamed of declaring their support for the yuckey lemon end of the spectrum ... but surely  that should affect the 'Torys as well? Maybe the statisticians have simply weighted in that deform wingers are simply more likely to lie?   But - without 'weightings' and assumptions that faragits will get everything that isnt declared as a definite and unequivocal 'not that Piers Morgan' - reform is on around 11% it seems.   Add to that the history of polling a lot less than the hype - and the simple fact that faragit wingers seem to be spread across the country (presumably skulking in their moms spare room despite being 45+) and greens and lib dems seem to be community minded - I think two seats will be an epic result for farage. Hardly the opposition - far more raving wingnut party.   and importantly - Has farage got a home in clacton yet?

    • 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.

I have read through a number of posts to try and assertain my position in respect to a recent Parking Charge Notice issued to me for overstaying in a Aldi car park for 10 mins.

 

The vehicle parked in a space at the Aldi supermarket.

Signs state that the maximum FREE parking time is one and half hours,

the stay according to PE was 1hrs 40 mins.

 

There wasn't any machine to extend the stay at the car park.

 

I got my Parking charge notice through post

 

i have overstayed for 10 mins, can you please advice.

 

Thanks & Regards

Krish

Could you copy and paste the relevant parts of this post

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?462118-Have-you-received-a-Parking-Ticket

and post your answers back in to this thread please.

 

Also,

a PDF of your NTK would be useful.

 

 

Please remove any identifying information eg, name & address, vehicle registration number, PCN number and any bar or QR codes,

but leave things like dates & times visible.

Please note that my posts are my opinion only and should not be taken as any kind of legal advice.
In fact, they're probably just waffling and can be quite safely and completely ignored as you wish.

Hi,

Thanks for the quick response, please find the below requested information.

 

1 Date of the infringement 13 May 2017

 

2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] Date issued: 18 May 2017

3 Date received 21 May 2017

 

4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? Yes

 

5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? yes, but all you can see is a car registration plate and 2 headlights

 

6 Have you appealed? {y/n?] post up you appeal]Not yet

Have you had a response? [Y/N?]

 

7 Who is the parking company? Parking Eye

 

8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] the parking Charge Notice states ALDI Hounslow

 

For either option,

does it say which appeals body they operate under.

There's a BPA logo at the top of the page, but no specific mention in the letter.

It says appeal to Parking Eye and details of POPLA shall be provided if unsuccessful.

Letter header states member of BPA but their appeals service is not mentioned

Thanks & Regards

Hi

The BPA have included in their guidance to allow an extra 10 minutes grace period and you have to remember that you were not parked for 1 hour 40 minutes. That is the total time from entering the site to exiting the site.

 

Complain long and hard to Aldi as it is they who should have the final say and if you have receipts from that date, all the better.

 

When appealing to PE, never name the driver. Only refer to them as 'The driver'

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

OK.

 

They probably won't allow any appeal that you make, there's no profit in allowing appeals after all, but with ParkingLie you must create a paper trail. So, send an appeal via letter (paper, envelope & stamp) and get a free certificate of posting from the post office.

 

You can appeal on any grounds you like (as they'll reject it anyway) but you might as well keep to the facts in this matter.

 

 

Dear ParkingLie

 

Ref: PCN Number -

Vehicle Registration -

 

As the vehicle keeper, I would like to invoke your appeals procedure.

 

The driver was shopping at Aldi in Hounslow. This took slightly longer than expected, however, taking in to account the guidance in the BPA Code of Practice for AOS members at 13.4 "the Grace Period at the end of the parking period should be a minimum of 10 minutes."

 

Whilst you contest that the driver did overstay, by the timings on your own NTK this overstay was a mere 45 SECONDS above and beyond the MINIMUM grace period.

 

I am sure that you do not wish to waste POPLA's time over such a minor matter, therefore I ask that this charge be cancelled. Failing that, please supply me with a POPLA code.

 

Signed

Recorded Keeper

 

 

 

 

(Don't actually sign it)

 

That's as good as anything.

 

 

You might as well pop in to Aldi as well and kick up a fuss with the Manager. They have the power to tell ParkingLie to cancel the charge (they may try to tell you otherwise) so get in there and start badgering them as well. The more angles of attack, the better thumbup.gif

first thing to do is contact Aldi if you were shopping there on the day and ask them to get the ticket cancelled as you were a genuine customer.

 

 

You may need to be able to show a copy of the receipt or at least provide a time you were there and some of the items purchased and they can then find your transaction.

 

 

Dont email but find the name of someone suitable to write to so they have to do something rather than just forward your email to PE, who will then ignore Aldi and consider this to be an appeal to them and reject it.

 

Dont forget to tell Aldi that this has left a sour taste in your mouth,

thinking of going elsewhere from now on as not given proper consideration to how long it takes to shop etc.

 

 

Also ask ALDI about what the council planning permission said about parking time limits.

This is usually enough to make them leap into action as they dont like that sort of questioning as they often havent got it right.

Thank you for all your responses.

 

I spoke with Aldi Assistant Manager as manager was on holiday.

 

 

I couldn't able to find the receipt on the day of the fine issued,

but i have shown him the recent receipts which i have paid with my card.

 

 

He said he will speak with manager and will let me know the outcome.

I have ranged him and to the store several times but there was no response.

 

Today i have sent an appeal by post by using the above template and i have taken the certificate of posting for the reference.

 

I will keep you posted once i have an update from Parking Eye.

 

Thank you for all your valuable advice's.

 

Regards

Krishna

Hi,

I got response from the parking eye for the above appeal.

 

 

I have been asked to provide evidence of purchases made in the store at ALDI on the date and time mentioned on the PCN to consider the appeal further.

 

I have taken the letter to ALDI Manager and i told him that i have been trying to meet him but he was on holiday.

 

 

The Manager asked me the date, time and amount of purchase done based on that he searched and provided me the purchase receipt.

 

I have sent the receipt to parking eye through email and post as well.

 

Now i got another letter saying:

Thankyou for your correspondence in relation to the parking charge incurred on 13 May 2017 at 18:37 at ALDI Hounslow car park.

You have provided the evidence of purchase.

 

 

However, please be advised that this did not meet the discretionary criteria set by the landowner in this case.

We are therefore writing to advise you that your recent appeal has been unsuccessful and that you have now reached the end of our internal appeals procedure

 

 

This is because you have not provided sufficient evidence to show that you did not break the terms and conditions on the signage.

 

Also i have been provided with POPLA Ref Number.

 

Please advice.

 

Thanks & Regards

Krishna

before you appeal check with local council whether there are any conditions in the planning application or consent for the store and car park.

 

Many say that as part of the consent they must provide free cutomer parking for 2-3 hours.

 

If there is any mention of this at all PE are generally screwed as the planning overrides any contract they can offer

and Aldi would be breaking the law

and in extremis forced to shut their store until they get PE to comply.

 

This has happened- Morrisons Caterham is one example

Hi DX,

they said there are other conditions like blue badge holders, loading only but not about the overstay.

Can i now appeal to POPLA?
