    • 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.

PCN in Rochdale on a road. Wrong location and offence on PCN


Recommended Posts

Hi All.

I went to visit a family friend in Rochdale on a new housing estate opposite a old row of houses.

The location is Royle Road, Postcode OL11 3PE.

I was originally parked in parking bays outside the old houses, then moved the car, when I noticed my tyre was flat, so parked on what looked like double yellows to use his air pump to check and inflate the tyres before we left the house. 

 In the time i went inside to sort the pump and power supply i got a PCN. 

The tyre then got changed (has a puncture) and we left.

PCN Number:         RE########
Date:             04/05/2024
Time:             20:36
Observation:         20:34 to 20:36
Reported location:     Royle Park Road
Reason:        Parked in a restricted street during prescribed hours (Code: 01)

I believe this PCN is not correct and has grounds to appeal:

1. My friend who moved into the property around 6 months ago, swears that even though it has old double yellows marked, they are not current or council marked.  

He said the property development company had said they had marked them for ease of access during development.

2. The road i was parked on was Royle Road.  The PCN was issued for Royle Park Road, which is about 400 yards up the road.

3. There are no sign posts or marking showing parking  restriction hours in the entire area (there maybe on Royle park Road).

I have attached a map of the Location where i parked as a red dot.

I have 2 questions:

a.  Is there a way to check where double yellow lines are marked on some register to check if they are current?

b. Can my grounds of appeal simply be, wrong location, wrong offence?

Thanks in advance.

all DYL's are subject to a TRO.

looking at this newish, ever increasing as old ind units have gotten removed, estate, there are only lines on one side, on the other there is a parking lane with traffic calming through which you mention.

i seriously doubt your mate has any clue what he is talking about.!!

its not a private housing assoc estate.

so its a public council owned road. no construction co can just decide to draw their graffiti on a road.

the DYLs are certainly there pre 2016 even before his home was built.

now ive had a quick look to see if the main access to royal park road has signs.

there is no royle park road even on your map

but there is a royal barn road which leads to where you are parked

royal road has a restriction sign on the pole by the fence of the electric substation jnc with gipsy lane

there does not appear to be one leading in from the other end - tesco petrol station

Hi.
Many thanks for your response.

You are correct it is Royal Barn Road that is stated on the PCN.  Where i was was Royle Road.
I originally came from the Tesco side, was initially parked across the road where there are parking bays, then moved over to side where the double yellows are.  I did check the entire street from Tescos on, and there are no signs for restrictions at all.

Also, the friend who owns the house asked the building company sales office today, who also believe the double yellows are old (some of them turn into peoples drives), and said there should be none.  - Obviously if the council have them as current thats besides the point.

SO the big question is, given the PCN states very incorrect information, Location, and type of contravention, can it be challenged?

Thanks

Thanks again.


I did earlier today. 

She said it is unfortunately. 

Although they need to update it as the road layout has technically changed from previous.

So my only defence maybe The wrong road and wrong contravention.
 

Out of curiosity, is there a requirement for there to be signs stating no parking with double yellows? Or are the markings enough?


Thanks again

ultimately DVL's are enough.

both of your issues could be explained away as simply ones of an admin nature in not updating , but as lots of repurposing is obviously going on over many many years....

if the whole traffic calming scheme throughout the area was new then maybe, but it's been in existence almost 10yrs now, 

if you are outside of the discount period now, you've nothing to lose by:
