    • There are huge numbers of public sector employees using their own vehicles for work purposes.   The employers are not quick in offering to provide a works vehicle to use and instead ask their staff whether they have a suitable vehicle which they will pay the mileage expenses for.     At some point in the last year or so, there must have been an accident event involving an employee using their vehicle for work, where they did not have the correct Insurance.  Earlier this year Government departments issued instructions for line managers to check driving licences, Insurance documents, MOT certs, before they allowed anyone to use their own vehicles for work purposes.  There has always been a preference for staff to use public transport or to hire a vehicle.        
    • you've not dobbed yourself in as the driver so IMHO go radio silent now.   i have removed the link and external appeal letter text.   next even if outside of scotland do not ever appeal   DX    
    • So you decided to sell your estate car (which was perfectly suited to your personal/domestic circumstances) and replaced it with first a van and then a 4x4 to allow you to use your own vehicle for work?   Why did you never tell them to supply a works vehicle?  Why did you never tell them that it would no longer be possible for you to carry out your duties if they did not supply a suitable works vehicle?  If you work for a local authority I can't believe that they would not have supplied a vehicle if you'd just asked for one.  That's what you should have done before buying a van!   As others have said, I can't see that you are entitled to any legal remedy for a decision you made yourself.  But as someone else has said, nothing to stop you asking...
    • As dx says, being in Scotland gives you a great advantage.   When you wrote you'd appealed I feared you'd thrown that advantage away, as generally in an appeal motorists out themselves as the driver - but you didn't!   How did you pay for the items you bought?
    • Hi thanks a lot for answering! Here are my answers:   It is a PCN's received through the post [ANPR camera capture] (must be received within 14 days from the Incident)   1 Date of the infringement 12/09/2021   2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 17/09/2021   3 Date received 24/09/2021   4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [Y/N?] Yes   5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? There is a photo of my registration plate on entry and exit.   6 Have you appealed? [Y/N?] post up your appeal] Yes. I used a template shared on this page:      ction on Pre-Action Conduct then I will make a formal complaint to the DVLA Data Sharinuthority to disclose or refer this letter or any other   communication from me to any other person or organisation.   Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up Yes:   Having carefully considered the evidence provided by you we have decided to reject your appeal for the following reasons: The car park is operated by Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) – cameras capture an image of vehicles entering and leaving the car park and calculate their length of stay. Parking at the above site is limited to 15 minutes. On entry to private land it is the responsibility of the driver to check for signage and ensure that your vehicle has been correctly parked. Your vehicle was parked longer than 15 minutes, therefore the notice was issued correctly and remains payable. vehicles found not adhering to the signage will be issued with a parking charge notice (PCN). Please be advised that there are a number of signs around the car park indicating the restrictions of the site and it is the responsibility of the driver to read them when parking. With regards to the reference to “Pre-Estimate of Loss/breach of consumer contracts 1999.” Please be advised that the Supreme Court has made judgement (04/11/15) that clearly sets out the issue of parking charge notices on private land (law of contract applies) and in particular pre-estimate of loss. The parking charge notice is enforceable on the basis that it protected a legitimate interest when the driver failed to adhere to the terms and conditions and was not extravagant, exorbitant nor unconscionable. The parking charge is not an unenforceable penalty and does not breach the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999. Please make payment of £100.00 by visiting our website at www.eurocarparks.com or use the automated telephone service 0203 553 4559. Alternatively make your cheque payable to Euro Car Parks Limited (to include a £2.50 handling charge for cheque processing) and post to Euro Car Parks Ltd, 30 Dorset Square, London, NW1 6QJ, quoting the PCN number on the reverse of the cheque. This amount is now due and the charge will be held for 14 days to allow time to make the payment. If payment is not received within this time further charges will apply. You have now reached the end of our internal appeals procedure.   You can make an appeal to the Independent Appeals Service, POPLA (Parking on Private Land Appeals) using the unique POPLA Reference code provided above. Please note, should you decide to appeal to POPLA, or if you appeal to POPLA and your appeal is subsequently rejected, the option to pay a discounted amount will NO longer be available and the FULL AMOUNT of the PCN will become due.   Please note - if the ticket was issued in SCOTLAND and or NORTHERN IRELAND, ONLY “THE DRIVER” can appeal to POPLA. If you/the driver decides to appeal to POPLA, you will need to visit the website, www.popla.co.uk, where further details of how to appeal (either online or by downloading the relevant forms) can be found.   If the driver is unable to access the website, please call us for further information on how to obtain the forms. Please ensure that the POPLA Reference Number as noted above is quoted on all correspondence to POPLA. The driver has 28 days from the date of this letter to submit an appeal to POPLA. If the driver appeals to POPLA, we will suspend recovery activity on the PCN.   Appeals may NOT be accepted if payment is made against the Parking Charge Notice, including any appeals logged via POPLA, if applicable.   If you choose to do nothing, we will seek to recover the monies owed to us via debt recovery procedures and may proceed with Court action against you.   By law we are also required to inform you that the Ombudsman Services (www.ombudsmanservices.org/) provides an alternative dispute resolution service that would be competent to deal with your appeal. However, we have not chosen to participate in their alternative dispute resolution services. As such should you wish to appeal then you must do so to POPLA, as explained above.   Yours sincerely   7 Who is the parking company? Euro car parks (ECP)   8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] MFG - BP Petrol Station Glasgow   For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under.

Hi can anyone give me some advice. Over the last month now i have been receiving letters from a debt collection agency about an amount that i am supposed to have owed empire stores from 2000-2002. I received my first letter from the debt collection in March and have now just received a letter stating it is a notice of legal proceddings. I have been in touch with empire who e-mailed me on the 5th april and advised they were sending me out copy statements of which i have only had 9-33. Today i got the letter dated the 13th April for the amount to be paid in full by the 19th April to avoid court proceedings. I have not had anything from the catalogue at all and empire are now not returning my e-mails when i have asked for a manager to deal and also details of how the payments on the account were made.PLEASE HELP I HAVE 3 DAYS TO MAKE PAYMENT BEFORE THE COURT TAKES OVER AND I DONT OWE THEM ANYTHING........ troubled victim

Hello,

 

This is obviously a very troubling time for you.:(

 

Do you have any idea who Empire Stores Catalogue are?

 

If you are certain that you owe them nothing, then you really have nothing to worry about, its up to them (as in the DCA) to prove you have an unpaid debt, rather than you to prove you havn't.

 

Without knowing the full story and actual correspondence, it seems that they are just trying to frighten you into paying. In my opinion, their behaviour thus far would be looked at unfavourably by a judge should this go to court. I am a little confused about the statement issue though, if you have never had anything from ESC, then what do these statements refer to?:???:

 

I think you need to post more details in the 'debt collection agecy' forum, outlining the full story and full details of all correspondence.

 

Best of luck

When you say you have "been in touch" with Empire - can you explain how? By post?

I suggest you SAR and CCA them right now send it recorded delivery - and tell them in no uncertain terms that you do not acknowledge this debt and as of today the account is "in dispute", reminding them that they can take no further action under the Consumer Credit Act whilst account is in dispute.

 

And are you saying you have never had an account with Empire?

 

Do NOT get involved in phone calls, everything from now on must be in writing.

Keep us posted

Hi All, thanks for the advice. i have spoken to the DCA today and advsd them i sent them a recorded letter this morning i printed off this website asking for them to prove to me i have had this account. I have checked the statements and i have never ordered any of the goods they have supposedly sent me. the man i spoke to today told me they will call me back once they have received the letter which they should receive tomorroe. I will be sure to tell them that since the account is in dispute that they cannot take this any further. Empire Stores have e-mailed me back today stating they no longer have the debt and to contact Robinson Way if i am disputing this. I will keep you all updated tomorrow when they have called me.

 

Thanks again for the advice ::: troubledvictim
