What matters is if he was given a fixed penalty notice, not some other random communication that could be called a ‘ticket’.

And then what he did with it.

Edit that post, refer to the driver only as ‘the driver’, nothing else, never give away the driver ID.

It’s not for breach of contract (then they could only sue for damages) but a contractually agreed sum. Yes they can make a claim for up to 6 years.

However as byelaws apply then the Protection of Freedoms act 2012 does not, as such the keeper cannot be held liable only the driver who of course they don’t know and you won’t be telling them. The driver would be liable for a criminal prosecution for breaching the railway byelaws but again they dint know who the driver is and they would have to bring that action within 6 months.

The local Polish supermarket has a RHD Sprinter on Polish plates, they use it to collect 'local produce' from Poland about once a month.

How do you know they are fake, if the authorities knew they were fake they would certainly take action, but upon driving past its pretty impossible to tell?

When you see the same number plate on three different vehicles (at different times), those vehicles are RHD, one has a UK dealer sticker in the rear window and in one case you've previously seen one being driven on a UK registration, then parked on the road on the Romanian registration, and then back on the road on the original UK registration, it's fairly blatantly obvious that the foriegn plates are being used to park a car on the road which is/should be SORN and off the road.


If you are minded to, you could report it, they will then check the VIn and if it should carry a UK VRM action will be taken.

I don't know how Romanian plates work, in some countries the VRM is assigned to a keeper and they can get it moved from one vehicle to the next. Its also not uncommon for ex-pats living here to have UK RHD cars perfectly legitimately registered as overseas as long as it returned to its 'home' country at the necessary frequency.

Did you appeal as driver or keeper?

If you appealed as driver the poor location is pretty much irrelevant I’d suggest.

Well done, shows how important understanding your defence is.

You need to communicate this to the MA and instruct them to immediately put a halt to their agent's harassment of you.

At 40mph you cover 8.89m in 0.5 seconds, not 17m (which is probably why it doesn't look like 17m!).

Common line spacing is 2m or 5 feet, so circa 4.5 lines in 0.5 seconds on 2m spacing would confirm the speed.

My daughter, who must have all the latest tech stuff, doesn't even use her smartphone to pay for stuff any more.

She has it linked to an Apple watch. and can just hover near a terminal and the transaction goes through.

I'm worried that she might press the wrong button, and launch a nuclear strike against North Korea.

Your daughter is behind on the tech she ‘must have’ the latest is having an RFID chip inserted under the skin of your hand and paying by waving your hand by the contactless device.

Personally I chip my pets not myself, but the tech guy at work assured me it’s the latest thing.

If evidence isn’t shared then section 33 is in play as well to contest the result.

Complain to the ‘trust’ CEO about the attitude of his PALS service and the failure to adhere to government guidance.

Do they have to prove that?
Or do they simply have to prove it was carried out in accordance to the t and c the individual signed up to?

ALso it wouldnt be the IAS suing but the operator, from what I ve seen of it.

Interesting argument, as the payment is a believe to the IAS and therefore the contract is with them, does the operator have standing?

They promise it’s to ADR standards so if it’s not, in my opinion, that would make the agreement a nullity whoever it’s with?

There is a very good point to waiting, they have 6 months to prosecute the driver, while they don’t know who that is, it’s always adviseable to drag out the process as much as possible.

The likelyhood of it gong to court depends on the parking company, if it’s a genuinely letter before claim though it’s probably now greater than 50%.

Which operator? Circumstances? Signage?

You need a robust response to the LBC.

Indeed, they would have to prove it was carried out in accordance with a reasonable standard such as the ADR regs, which I doubt it was. For example they don’t normally share the operator evidence with the appellant, do they for people who pay?

Of course signs should be correctly maintained, BUT, it’s the council who are responsible for that and the Police who are responsible for enforcement.

For someone caught committing a criminal offence you seem rather righteous?

I commute by bike year round anyway, I average about 85% of my commutes by bike most years.

It happens hundreds of times every day! The chances of anything happening are very slim, probably less than 0.1%, get on with your life.

Even if prosecuted it would likely be for driving without due care and attention, that’s nit a recordable offence so you wouldn’t get a criminal record anyway.

You need to be more assertive in that situation, you were passing cars and are required to obey the limit, if the guy behind doesn’t like it, tough.

That last paragraph is clearly for an appeal to a PPC and not to POPLA. You need to start with a POPLA appeal.

I’m sure he’d be happier if he actually tried to help people rather than complaining that others aren’t helping people as much as he thinks they should be. He does remind me of someone...... hey Tank do you have spray tan and a funny hair style?

As the speed camera operator is just a witness to a crime, he’s not going to be committing any criminal offences under those circumstances.

The law is clear that it’s what happens for that driver that matters, not what may have happened had they taken a different route. In addition if the road was a restricted road by virtue of a system of street lighting then the lack of terminal signs when entering it don’t normally create a defence.

As above, was a course not offered! Presumably you were doing 35 in a 30?

It would raise a good GDPR question though, if you use form V888 you have to show reasonable cause and the form is audited, ATA members are expected to have reasonable cause by virtue of following their ATA CoP, if they demonstrably don't and the ATA isn't enforcing properly and the DVLA are not auditing then that could, AIUI represent then a GDPR breach by the DVLA as their 'reasonable cause' GooJF card would be invalid.
