A family have recently moved into a house near me and park there car on a double yellow lines in front of the house every day about 2 meters before a busy roundabout. A ticket is slapped on the windscreen every single day and this has been the case for the last 6 weeks. I highly doubt she's paying them as I think she's on benefits.

Sorry I'm not asking for any serious advice for myself but need to kill the curiosity so I can stop scratching my head. What are the likely consequences of constantly ignoring council issued parking tickets in this manner?

It's likely the car isn't registered to her so she could care less where the fines are going. Either way if her car is picked up by bayliffs the car will just be towed to cover the costs. So put simply, if she isn't paying then she's treading on thin ice.

This belongs in the flame pit.

Councils usually have a persistent offender policy and they will just remove the car. Certainly if in London.

Couldn’t care less, surely?

If it's not registered to her, the chances are that it doesn't have tax/MOT/insurance either

The first two are easily checked on the DVLA database
Insurance can be checked at Askmid but you can only use the free service if it's your own car

Baliffs cannot take the car if it isnt owned by the person they are enforcing against no? (e.g. car is on finance).

And yes I have seen cars towed or clamped for being constantly naughty by the councils, just saw a Land Rover Discovery on a Kensington and Chelsea Pick Up Truck!

If council get fed up, they will remove the vehicle as a persistent offender.
Dread to think what the final bill could be, councils do not give up easily and have law on their side when people ignore the system

That is a fallacy with council PCN enforcement.
The owner is liable and will be the person enforcement action is taken against.
The Owner is taken to be the Registered Keeper unless proven otherwise.
So someone may have a nice, shiny, new car all financed to the hilt but if the V5 says that they are the RK, the bailiffs can and will grab it.

Not much point in then pointing out that it is on finance, the motor can still be lifted, the finance company will still want paying and I'll bet that there is a clause in any finance agreement making the borrower liable for all costs.

By the time it gets to bailiff stage, the bill will be around £500 per ticket or £25K, I doubt they'll ever recover that.

Holding a copy of an NTO, naturally. Are you a photographer for the DM?

I thought it was more a comment on Chantelle's knicker elastic's ability to keep them in place.

Who me Sir? No Sir, not me Sir.
More a comment on the sexual mores of the Chantelle's of the world.
Who often seem to embrace cultural diversity.
Quite possibly the embrace was in an alleyway behind the local booze street and she didn't get his name.

I believe the correct description is that she has been “culturally enriched” (several times).

Indeed. They stopped making plasma TVs a few years ago.

Back in the days when I photographed weddings, the largest TVs were in the chavviest houses - usually in the bedroom

By coincidence the brides also had the most extensive tattoos, or "Tramp stamps" as we used to describe them

Love the expression "culturally enriched"
