Hello!

I got a PCN for the ULEZ on bank holiday Monday after having the presence of mind to check that the congestion charging wasn't in force! I was aware that there are emission rules but have never really thought they applied to my car. I'm OK in low emission zones but not ultra low (I've checked online). I imagine that this one is a 'fair cop' as I was completely oblivious (a) to any need to pay attention to these rules, and (b) any signs or other warnings as I was driving into the zone. Ignorance being no excuse, of course.

However, is there any hope of avoiding the £80 fine?

Thanks

PS: given there is ANPR everywhere, why not simply allow road users to be able to register for any fees and tolls occurred nationwide to be billed after the event, thereby removing the need to fine those who've signed up? Could it be that they make more money this way? I bet there's a real spike in PCNs in the ULEZ on bank holidays.

IInterestingly they are offering further discouragement by mentioning that costs might be awarded against me. They appear to have attempted to imply that my statement was contradictory (which it certainly wasn't!), which has irked me.


Paragraph 6(1)(b) of 'The Civil Enforcement of Parking Contraventions (England) Representations and Appeals Regulations 2007' requires them to point this out to you in the NoR.

Except this is not a parking PCN.

Oops, apologies!

In which case, make that paragraph 15(1)(b) of The Road User Charging (Enforcement and Adjudication)(London) Regulations 2001, as amended.
