    • Bank the cheque.  No doubt it will bounce - but you never know. When it bounces - that is when you are meant to access their website link and enter your personal details - but of course - DON'T.
    • Wayne Ting, chief executive of e-scooter firm Lime, says there's room for improvement. View the full article
    • If you are absolutely certain* that you were parked OK, write a letter of complaint to the Headteacher and copy in the Chair of the school governors.   If you or the car were identifiable in any way from the photo (eg visible registration number, driver's face etc) I would very politely write that you resent the untrue suggestion that you had parked/had stopped/were waiting in a way that contravened any traffic regulations, and that you are sure that the school will understand that you would like an apology and a correction to be printed in the next newsletter.  (You can also clearly state that you were identifiable from the photo because other parents have mentioned it to you).   See if that works.   You don't want to go to court for defamation as you'll need access to about £10k in fees before you get out of bed.  You just want an apology and a correction.  If what you've told us is accurate, I don't see any reasonable school failing to say sorry.     *My wife is a former school governor and my experience listening to her is that very very few parents actually understand the meaning of the no stopping/no waiting signs and road markings outside schools.  Don't complain unless you are sure you weren't stopped where you shouldn't have been.
    • And they haven't offered a speed awareness course either?  (Have you done one in the last three years or is this in Scotland?)   And is one of the notices for 34 in a 30?  As Man in the Middle says, that ought to be below the level at which they take action.   (And sorry - I don't want to appear preachy - but...  there don't have to be any warnings or signs or lines on the road to advise you of the presence of speed cameras.  If you get away with an exceptional hardship argument you will need to stick to speed limits in future - whether you know there are cameras there or not.  NB Don't know if this applies to you, but most 30 mph limits are restricted roads with a system of streetlighting and don't even need speed limit signs - you are assumed to know this from the Highway Code).
    • It's up to you if you want to pay £300 you don't owe plus whatever Unicorn Food Tax with no basis in law whatsoever that they will have made up in the Letter Before Claim.   We'd prefer you didn't.   But you have received a LBC so it's make your mind up time.   So please    - post up photos of the signage in the dark that you'll have taken two months ago (post 14)    - post up details of planning permission for their signs you'll have found out after you got onto the council, again two months ago (again post 14)    - also let us know if you agree with Brassnecked's excellent letter or if you'd like to tweak bits depending on what you've found out    - upload the LBC.  Some of them are appallingly drafted and invariably contain Unicorn Food Tax which is all useful extra ammo    - also, where are you living now (post 35) and are you comfortable with legal communications arriving at your parents'?   If you look in our PPC Successes thread at the top of the page, you will see 275 times these cheats have been seen off with their tails between their legs (and all had the same "well known legal companies" (ho! ho!) on hand).  In reality 275 times is a massive underestimate, in all 275 cases there was a "moment of victory" IYSWIM where the PPC were thrashed in court or discontinued a claim or were called off by a supermarket chain, etc., etc.  There will have been at least that number again where they were told to Foxtrot Oscar and then crawled back under their stone.  They are eminently beatable but logically when you're in legal dispute you have to put some graft in to beat the other party.

Oh Charley , I was hoping you had some news by now ! I have been back onto the court and the Judge is still looking at the AQs . I did get a tad worried as I saw another thread (cant remember who) and they were on the same timescale as us , and their papers were transferred from Lambeth County Court to the Mercantile Court . I was going to have a read this evening (yes I know it is Sat night) and see if that would make any great difference to my claim. Good luck - if I dont hear anything ,I too, will ring the Court on Wednesday .

 

 

LadyE,

 

Mercantile is a good thing............the Banks hate the place more than the Small Claims and will do anything to settle with you.

Hi Charleyfarley

Have you got over the shock of being surrounded by girls yet?

I agree that this site can be very confusing as the names that people use can be misleading!

I feel like an Internet Perv in reverse...........chatting to someone you think is a bloke and they turn out to be a girl:confused: :confused: I think just about everyone who's thread I keep an eye on is female.......it's like charleyfarley's flippin' harem.

 

I'm not complaining you understand, just a tad confusing (or is that my age??):)

Oh to be 20 again and know what I know now. ;)

 

Charley, anything under 17 stone and not grey haired won't make me old and sad, I'm very tolerant (or so my OH says) but then I have to be with him, mum, 3 dogs, 2 cats and 2 sheep to contend with, not forgetting Abbey.

 

Being part of a harem, whatever the sheik looked like sounds like fun :D

Oh Charley, you're not alone in your corner.

 

Two of the dogs, both cats and the ram have been 'enuchised' as well so you won't be lonely in your corner. ;)

 

Isn't it nice to have some lighthearted moments in the midst of all the seriousness of reclaiming from obstinate banks. :)

I agree.

 

Done it.

 

And Charley, I believe the eunuchs were the ones who invented the 'adventurous' encounters in the harem, so don't do yourself down. :D

I have clicked all your scales as yesterday I spent most of the date sniggering about poor CF.

Ladies,

 

That's very kind of you all.........i don't really know what to say, apart from I think the help and support on this site is fantastic, and if we can all have a laugh while we're getting our money back, then it makes the whole damn complicated frightening process a little bit easier and less intimidating:)
