Mersey Flow/Halton Toll Road fine

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

my friend has just received a letter regarding a £40 penalty charge because she crossed the Mersey Gateway Bridge and didn't pay the toll online (she didn't realise she had to, didn't see the signs). 

Is this legally enforceable?

Hi.

 

I asssume the bridge is owned by the local authority, or isn't it?

 

Would you be able to show us the letter minus name, address etc please?

Having looked quickly online, it sounds as if this could be like Dartford Crossing fines which can be tricky. Let us see the letter if you can. :)

Thank you for the letter.

 

As this says penalty charge notice [and not parking charge], I've moved your thread to the local authority parking forum and left you a link to follow.

Your only hope is asking for discretion on the grounds of well you didn't realise you had to pay online you expected a toll booth, you didn't see any sign of any penalty charge amount and basically it's your first time using this toll bridge and you were unaware of the process,.

 

In the past, for 1st time offence, Merseyflow have responded rejecting the appael but on this one occasion have reduced the penalty to the toll fee.

 

You might be lucky.
