    • Thanks DX.  I've ploughed through the pages and dug out what I feel are the relevant ones. Obviously, some of these are duplicates of what I've put up before.  Anyway, I would be hugely grateful if someone can look over and advise. Reading though other posts and on other cases that I've had help with from here, I don't think they have much of a case - given the weakness of much of their "evidence" - but obviously I would be grateful for some expert advice from the helpful souls on here.    Thank you.    B   Witness Oct19_redacted.pdf
    • You came here for advice, soem advice has been given adn you question the validity and source of that advice. We are all lay peopele, ie not giving professional advice but it is based on experience of the world and in some cases working in the field that advice is given on. Now you dont have to take our advice, we wont get the huff if you prefer to look elsewhere or do something else. when I asked what you think they would do with your NI number it is to prod you to think for yourself and question why they would ask for this when there is nothing legal they can do with the information so wouild you be wnating to give it to them knowing that they would want it to break the law if they processed it. Now you can take that up with the company at the top but TBH unless you want to spend money on a lawyer they will not answer the question or fob you off with some ridiculous answer anyway.   so for the moment read a lot about  RLP and similar situations to yours ans make particular note of what happened to the peopel in the end. You will find no threads theat ended by saying " thanks to you I gor sued by RLP and owe them a fortune". It isnt going to happen and the reasons why are explained in many threads. They rely on your feeling of guilt to get anywhere
    • you need to respond to their letter saying that you belive that you ahve been paid correctly ( or underpaid if you are due a small amount of accrued holiday pay etc) and demand that they show a full account of what you received, when and why and how they arrived at this figure. You then reconcile that with your P45 and use the figures to bat off any furhter demands if they still akke one. Come back if they dotn drop the matter and give us the full breakdown on hours worked, hourly rate, gross pay, tax paid  etc
    • @dx100ukI never got a response to my SAR from Octopus.   But I have just received a 'letter before court action' from one of their legal representatives, who have been "instructed to consider legal action against [me] if full payment, a settlement or your proposals to make suitable repayments arrangements are not received in the next 30 days."   I'm reading the threads now. Any advice on how to proceed? 
    • I would say let them do their worst, it will surely backfire on them. Now with restrictive contracts that stop you working fro competitors- these are notoriously vague so often not worth the paper they are written on. also they have to be fair so for example if there are only 2 companies in the UK that make a certain product your employer cant say you arent allowed to work for the other one. If you were for example trained as a hairdersser and you were going to open a salon in the next street to your ex employer then the restriction would apply if worded correctly. Dont panic about this, your new employer will be au fait with the situation and time spent worrying about a nastly letter will in their eyes take you eye off the ball so concentrate on the new job.

VCS ANPR PCN - berkeley precinct sheffield

Recommended Posts

hi, i have received a pcn/ntk stating driver overstayed by 25mins. appeal sent stating letter received late.

 

parking company- vehicle control services ltd (member of IPC)

 

no ticket , letter /PCN/ NTK received through post - issued 11/01/19, received on 15/01/19

 

appeal emailed to them and they have replied and given me options, either give driver details, appeal on behalf of driver with their permissoin or pay reduced fine,

 

dont really want to pay them, or give them driver details,

there was no ticket left on windscreen, and i received letter on 15 jan. which is over the 2 working days they allocate for receipt , however, i cannot prove this as the envelope is not dated., and they state that the onus is on customer to prove late receipt.

 

i have looked at a previous case about berkely precinct on this forum , where the claimant from wales fought the case for over a year, but unfortunately , lost at court.

 

i would be grateful if any members could advise me whether its worth taking this further or shall i just pay and rid myself of stress.

 

this is the reply i received after appealing

As they aren't holding the keeper liable they can only claim from the driver. They cannot assume that the keeper was the driver. If they could, POFA 2012 would be completely unnecessary.

 

If you have evidence that you were elsewhere, so much the better. Receipts, witnesses etc.

I received a parking charge notice from Athena APNR.

They do the Lidl car parks.

They have gone after the registered keeper of the vehicle claiming I am responsible as I am the keeper.

 

At the time of the offence I wasn't the driver.

The car is owned by me as I am disabled and it used for hospital trips etc.

As I understand it the keeper is only liable under certain circumstances, the owner is under no obligation to tell these people anything.

 

I'm sick and tired of bullies like these parking companies claiming you have infringed some petty rule and now must pay an extortionate penalty.

The Department of Transport state that charges must be reasonable for the loss to the landowner.

They can't be so huge that they become a penalty.

 

You have no obligation to tell these parasites anything.

As it is a civil debt the onus is on them to prove their case, not for you admit it and do their job for them.

Write back and tell them that you have informed the driver and leave it at that.

I asked Athena for a photo of the alleged driver.

Needless to say I am still waiting.

Certainly not! They cannot hold the keeper liable as they have failed to meet the requirements of POFA 2012 (and have admitted this). Only the driver could be held liable for any charge and you are under NO obligation to tell them who that is. Do you have any proof of being elsewhere? Were you at work, shopping, visiting friends? If you have location enabled in your phone you may be able to get a record of where you were on the day.

Normally the advice would be not to reply, but since you have already engaged with them and were not the driver I would recommend a final, curt p-off letter something along the lines of the following:

 

Ref PCN xxxxxx VRN xxxxxxx

 

Thank you for clarifying that your Notice to Keeper does not comply with the requirements of POFA 2012 and you are not seeking to use the Act to transfer liability from the driver at the time, to me, the keeper.

 

I note with amusement that you have invented a right to assume that the keeper is the driver, but as barrister Henry Michael Greenslade stated in his 2015 POPLA report “There is no reasonable presumption in law that the registered keeper of a vehicle is the driver and operators should never suggest anything of the sort.” I assume you are now going to claim that Elliot V Loake applies, when we both know that it doesn't. A civil parking dispute is clearly not on all fours with a criminal case supported by forensic evidence. Tell simple Simon to change into his Excel hat and see if he can remember when the judges told him not to be so silly about his EvL claims (Excel v Mr C C8DP37F1 Stockport 31/10/2016 and Excel v Mr B C7DP8F83 at Sheffield 14/12/2016 just to help!)

 

For the avoidance of all doubt, I was NOT the driver at the time of the alleged incident. I have witnesses who are prepared to testify under oath that I was elsewhere. I am not required to name the driver and I will not be doing so. As you are now aware that I have no liability in this matter, if you continue to pursue me it will be considered vexatious harassment and I will be applying for a full costs recovery order should you choose to abuse the court process by initiating a claim when, as already proven, it is bound to fail.

 

I do not expect to hear from you again, or any agents on your behalf, other than to confirm that the notice has been cancelled and my details removed from your database.

 

Love and kisses xxx

 

I would ask your witness(es) to make notes of where you were on the day now, before it's 2 years down the line and everyone forgets. Write something up and keep it safe. They have 6 years to raise a claim so hang onto those notes!

 

Don't act straight away - hopefully Ericsbrother will see this and give his view as he's much more experienced than I.

right, they say you are not liable u8nder the POFA so what more do you want?

 

they are stuffed and they admit it and the rest of what they say is they will unlawfully harass you regardless becuse no-one will send them to prison for it.

 

the end.

 

they are dishonest and greedy so i would be ignoring them until they get to the point of sending a proper lba under the pap and then rip into them once again.

 

Mrs O'frog has dug out soem of the past misadventures of Simple-Simon Renhsaw-Smith so they are not ignorant of the law or the facts of the matter so if you do feel ike you should say something that will do nicely. it also shows you ave tried to settle the matter and so any court claim they make will most likely fail the reasonablenes test

thanks for explaining clearly, i will email them a letter similar to Mrs O'frogs post and hopefully they wont contact me again.

 

i cannot use the reply icon in email they have sent because it states -' NO REPLY' at beginning of email , so i will have to try and find an alternative one where i can contact them,

 

or failing this i will have to send letter through post, however, i would prefer to email

If you have to send via ordinary post send it first class and ask for a free certificate of posting from the post office which means it is deemed as delivered 2 working days later. Don't send recorded delivery as they have form for refusing to sign for bad news, then you just have proof that it wasn't delivered. Keep the certificate with a copy of the letter and everything else - keep everything safe for 6 years.

 

If they do write back afterwards just ignore everything until you get a lba, then come back here for further advice.

 

I know my letter may sound rude in places, but you have to appear hard with them - no please or thank you, just demand and insist, otherwise they smell weakness and prey on the vulnerable. Hyenas.

just one quick question - should i write in addition that the pcn arrived later than the 14 days .

 

contravention date 29/12/18

 

issue date 11/1/19

 

received 15/01/19, i cannot prove this as the envelope was not date stamped

 

please advise

The "later than 14 days" is irrelevant now as that's only a condition to meet the requirements of POFA. They know they've missed it and say they are not relying on it so no, don't include it.
