    • 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.

Hi

My son has received a PCN notice from Harrow Council 5 days after buying his first car.

Looking at the google street view image of the location the junction layout is very cluttered and I can image that a lot of people get caught out.

 

he was looking for a car park.

He turned right off Greenhill Way into Havelock Place.

Straight ahead the road narrows to a single lane into what looks like a pedestrian area between shops.

To the right is a very short service road that is clearly a dead end.

He opted to turn left into what looks like another service road (just over one car length from the main road) and did not notice the no entry signs.

 

'No entry' is not displayed on the road.

There is no 'no left turn sign' either as the distance between the main road and the junction is too short.

 

He pulled into one of the parking bays in the service road.

Consulted a map and then retraced his route back to the main road.

 

I realise that he should have noticed the no entry signs.

But personally I think I might have missed them too as you only have a couple of seconds to take in everything around you before you're at the junction.

 

Is it worth him appealing the ticket for what is a genuine mistake in a confusing situation.

Thanks

Sadly I think an adjudicator would say that teh no entry was clearly and sufficiently signed.

 

Everything else you say is merely mitigaton and adjudicators generally cannot take mitigation into account.

 

Ironically either of the other two options would not have resulted in a pcn.

 

Discount looks the best coiurse.
