But video on YouTube or such like and post a link.

Well you're missing out on what could be a training video for YBJ CCTV operators - following another van into the box with no clear exit (for either of them), stationary fully in the box for about 24s. The video also shows plenty of other drivers demonstrating how you should use a YBJ, especially in London, unless you're wealthy enough that a steady stream of PCNs doesn't much matter.

and suggest that the road by that sign should be marked to make that clear?

Are there any road markings they could lawfully place there?

My take on SP's comment was that it was less of a hint than expressing the view (which I imagine most people reading this would share) that this "yes it is... no it isn't..." exchange is boring as hell.

I did not realise that they eventually break off into pages with the initially posting frozen at the top.

At the risk of confusing you further, if you prefer not to see the original post at the top of every page of your thread, you can change this behaviour; click on Options at the top right of the first post in your thread, and under Display Modes switch to Standard instead of Linear+.

Clearly not a designed as a pedestrian footpath as there is no path leading to or away from it.

I'd be happy to show you many stretches of footway that do actually come to an end without another made-up path connecting to them.

I apologise to anyone following this thread. Another, parallel thread, using the same Dropped kerb legacy has appear. Messages sent between 9/12-14/1 appear on this thread; messages from and after 14/1 appear, for some reason, on the other thread

Would you stop with this nonsense? The links you're providing are just to different posts in the same thread - you only have one "Dropped kerb legacy" thread, this one!

Its an awkward situation 1 to ask them for documents they may no longer have or that might not be as you say valid in the uk

What's awkward about telling them that you need a copy of the documents showing the insurance cover they were legally required to have in place to drive over here?

QUOTE (snophalert @ Thu, 23 Jan 2020 - 14:33) *
and 2 tell the police who may want to contact them.

Which you're legally required to do.

"Awkward" really isn't a good reason to break the law, is it? If anyone feels awkward it should be your friend who's put you in this position.

Who would imagine that a driver of an emergency vehicle would actually have to demonstrate that their breaking of a speed limit was justified by a statutory exemption, by way of a simple and long-established procedure? I'm shocked, I tell you!

NOTE: there seems to be a parallel thread to this matter; I don't know why or how. Neither thread contains all contributions. I do not know how to merge the two

You have three threads:
  1. Dropped kerb legacy - Dropped kerb no longer used as drive
  2. Stopping to take patient to surgery
  3. Dropped Kerb - Parking across one's own drive
If you're saying that two of these are the same case then I can merge them, but they all seem to be different cases.

Even Councillors have difficulty in persuading officers to change something, especially if that change might mean less revenue to the Council.

All a Councillor can legitimately do (similarly to an MP, for that matter) is persuade the officer to reconsider their decision - it would be quite improper for them to influence the officer's decision.

Not sure what you mean by two streams you only have one thread titled dropped kerb legacy and its not been merged. You appear to have double posted in the same thread.

The OP has another thread titled "Dropped Kerb Own Drive", but that appears to be a different case (albeit another dropped kerb).

Of course once I'm past the camera van all bets are off I'm joining everyone else up in the 70's safe in the knowledge they wouldn't be so tight or bloody minded to stick two vans on one bit of road....... until today! Only just spotted it in time hopefully.I think it's bloody unsporting to double up on camera vans that's not how the game works in my mind.

My top money-saving tip for D&C would be to have a word with these guys if the denizens of that region are simple enough to think that spotting one sign of enforcement means you're in the clear for the rest of the day - doesn't seem necessary to use a real van for the job.

So, for my provisional, no insurance, band a fine and l plates offence - this will only be 6 points due to same occasion!?

This no insurance thing is entirely a figment of your own imagination - there's no indication that your insurance policy would have been invalidated, and neither are you being prosecuted for that offence. Forget about it.

Ebay and Paypal have been separate companies since 2015.

That's true, but at that time they entered into a 5-year operating agreement under which PayPal have continued to provide eBay's back-end payment processing and remained the default payment option, so ATM they are pretty well unavoidable for eBay sellers. However when that agreement comes to an end in the middle of this year eBay will switch to Adyen as their back-end provider, and PayPal will become just an ordinary payment option.

Ebay are notorious for siding with buyers in disputes,

Very true. And also notorious for being a law unto themselves when it comes to freezing and restricting access to funds.

It'll certainly be interesting to see what game-changing evidence has suddenly appeared out of nowhere after all this time. As a public service I provide this link that she may wish to consider.

There used to be a thing - not sure if it is ever still used - called "continuous payment authority". That could eventually (no idea how) eventually transcend cancelled accounts (as opposed to cancelled cards).

Simple - you authorised the payments while the account was open, and closing the account doesn't expunge your liability for those payments.

The problem with CPAs is that you're authorising the merchant to charge the card, and it used to be that they could only be cancelled by the merchant. The FCA changed the rules some years ago so that you can now get the card issuer to cancel them if the merchant is being difficult (or maybe can't even be contacted).

I would add that so far you haven't appeared to take on board the potentially dire consequences of your current insurance arrangements.

If either you or your uncle were to be involved in an accident resulting in a significant claim, your insurer is likely to take a close interest in the statements made in taking out the relevant policy, with a view to avoiding liability for any payout. In your uncle's case they'd almost certainly consider it to be "fronting", and probably void the policy. In your case if they consider the difference in risk between Reading and wherever the address is in Kent to be significant, they might do the same. Either would be ruinous, so you really need to put this right.

Legitimate Threats to Kill Jeremy Corbin


Now I don't much like the man either, but I don't think threats to kill him are at all legitimate.

Presumably the OP meant something like "actual", rather than "legitimate". And Corbyn, rather than some poor bloke with a similar name who's probably entirely unrelated to him. Mentioning that the offender had downed a bottle of whisky immediately before leaving the ranty voicemail on the Brexit Party phone line, threatening to kill Lib Dem leader Corbyn, and had a record of violence offences, might also have been helpful in understanding the validity of whatever point the OP was attempting to make. However...

If people are frustrated that they don't think they're getting information they asked for, or their inputs aren't being considered, or whatever, then could they please just butt out and leave it to the OP and others who are still prepared to help? Nobody's interested in whether you're stomping off and taking your ball away. Don't like, don't help.
