Didn't that happen in the early days of PPC's. All these companies appear to have gone. Wonder why. PCOJ perhaps?

I know this part of the world but have never met anyone omniscient enough to be able to differentiate an error in law without training or guidance. Apart from the odd Friday night though.

PS Suspect they are using tick-box software.

Perhaps the sale of the car parks may have something to do with this - and other Indigo cases.

There is plenty of science behind sign design (See Semiotics and the tap example).

The penalties for deliberately misreading/ignoring the meaning of the signs is a behaviour shaping constraint/penalty. (See Poka Yoke if you don't have a manufacturing background)

When there is a surge of people penalised due to a failure in communication by signs there is no balancing behaviour shaping constraint on the LA - only the safety net of an adjudicator. That's after the LA have pocketed the money.

There has to be a balance in the system since it is clearly missing at the moment.

I suspect this is a large part of the problem. Where there's a complicated layout with a plethora of signs, particularly when it's unfamiliar, people prioritise looking for red prohibitive signs rather than blue signs that may or may not have anything to do with them. In a situation like that bus gate no entry signs with an exception plate for buses etc would likely have a much higher level of compliance.


There have been a number of bus lane signage "faults" such as York, Nottingham and Newcastle. It wouldn't be out of place to have some form of check/balance at LA's where if there are "x" times the number of tickets expected issued at a spot that enforcement is restricted until the signs are made clear, and unequivocal. However where money is involved, sense goes out the window,

Surely solicitors are the best people to defame as they are more likely to have a realistic idea of what is involved in suing for defamation.


Can't argue with that.

Suppose the same goes for almost all of the legal profession too. Hence Mr SRS's pop at judges who disagree with his "Statements of Truth".

Proven non-driving RKs getting demands/legal threats has already been tried by Civil Enforcement in Scotland where there is no Keeper Liability.

An RK who was about 70 and had never had a licence didn't want to put the car in someone else's name. He was a key witness in the fraud case Procurator Fiscal v Civil Enforcement. You would have thought such a solid example of a PPC attempting to use the law the other way i.e. to defraud RK's would have held water, but no.

So the chances of it applying in the other direction is simply fantasy.

I may have missed the mark here. Perhaps I should try a separate thread. This is more of an insurance/hedging comment - an area the UK excels at.

Whilst we may crash out (according to the Cambridge legal academic) we may not. The UK fishermen may be able to keep all their catch but may not if reciprocation is granted. UK farmers will not be excluded but may find the EU tariffs such that it is not economically worthwhile to try to sell there.

No-one can say what will happen but what steps have people taken to cope with the possible scenarios. Head-in-sand seems the overwhelming majority and good luck with that. Personally I have an EU passport and CHF - but that is my simple approach to the matter. I also think that Portuguese and Spanish property may become worthwhile when it is abandoned by UK residents leaving. But these are possibilities rather than probabilities.

There must be #Brexit positives if we all want to have it?

There is a Cambridge academic who reckons a hard/no-deal Brexit is nailed on simply due to political delays/incompetence. It's all down to the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement Implementation) Bill. To leave with a deal requires this bill to be passed before March 29th and the only problem is no-one has seen it yet for the simple reason - implement what?

Additionally, the Bill will require us to implement areas of law where the ECJ will be supreme (EU citizens rights) - something that certain politicians won't swallow. And with the clock ticking, we are well past the time to debate/enact it. Looks more and more like a political cock-up which can be traced back to David Davis.

So what might happen? Will the local fishermen here all of a sudden keep all their catch? Or the local farmers be denied access to Europe?

Hard Brexit tips please.

As an example our club beginners rides average 15mph as that has proven to be fine for people just getting into (or back into) cycling, unless you’ve tried it or are very unfit (I did say didn’t have to be that fit...) perhaps you should try it before calling me out?


Just for personal information and not part of the thread, what cadence is that? I think I may have the wrong gearing.....

Sauce for the goose etc ....

The issue is that they are entitled (as is the OP) to press a reasonably held belief to court using the small claims court costs protection. More should do it.

From personal experience, PCM will fold if you add in their client under "vicarious liability" to the claim - again using the principle of a reasonably held belief.

Good advice for people in that position, Emanresu


Not quite as it is unclear what I was trying to say.

You still need to defend even IF there is no way to pay. The 6 years doesn't apply to a CCJ as it will have been decided by the court. The provision of your financial data is to persuade them it is not worth continuing but if they do, you still have to defend. Stupidity and vindictiveness is still rife in this industry.

Do I have to fill in and return this "financial statement" that they sent me with the LBC?


There are two arguments to this one. The first is that it is none of their business and they can swivel - the usual view.

From a practical view based on debt charity's advice, you could choose to give that information IF you are on benefits, are massively in debt or have a DRO/IVA. There is a difference between won't pay (as they have no justification) and can't pay as the "debt" would never be paid within 6 years anyway as any amount would be unsecured.

Just bear in mind that modern debt collection practices include checking the target's ability to pay so if they are targeting you, they think you have cash or assets.

Lik KH_ I've the See Sense Icon+ lights. The "theft" feature is really a built-in motion sensor and the feature can also send an emergency text through your mobile if you are hit. Useful if you are getting knocked off as frequently as you say wink.gif

I thought they were expensive until I saw these. Perhaps a word to Santa.

There may be this option coming up too but as it is a Kickstarter funded one, it may never see the light of day [pun]

This thread has gone away from my original question which was the issue of Brexit on ex-pat property in the EU. The comments about ending free movement of EU nationals after March 2019 is (or should have been) reciprocal. Unless an ex-pat has "settled status" or have a work visa, they are restricted to 90 days. The same as in the UK.

Additionally in the UK if you have "settled status" and leave the UK for more than 2 years you lose that right - which may be the same in the EU. May has given a gift away by saying that EU nationals already here can stay which resulted in some amusement for the Polish Prime Minister when it was announced as it is not reciprocal.

So what are ex-pats planning to do given they may only have 90 days or if they have settled status, they could lose it.

Government and partners are looking at how TRO's can become digital. See here if you need to comment

If they were digital, hoovering up the motorists' cash becomes more effective (a.k.a. profitable).

Since Ireland is in the Common Travel area, then no visa required. However it is not clear what reciprocal arrangements will be in place after 2020. In any case without a legal binding arrangement, politicians promises are "aspirations" and not a contractual promise. Which is why politicians are never sued for breaking them.

Still wondering how much cheap property will be coming onto the market through distressed sales. Spain and France are the obvious ones but Italy may be a worthwhile punt - assuming they don't leave (or be thrown out) the EU.

I know we are all sick of it but it has posed an interesting dilemma for my holiday booking over the next few years.

There are a few people I know who have property in France/Spain and are considering selling up and moving back. Part of the reason is the uncertainty over free movement. At present if you want to travel in a Schengen area you have to have a visa (something that should apply to the UK after transition) but the visa is only for 90 days. OK if you just want short holidays but impossible to use if you want to stay longer.

There is the possibility of some cheap overseas property coming onto the market (a benefit) but a restriction on using it (consequence)

Any ex-pats out there?

Why does it say "To whom this may concern". Is there not a specific name in the address?

Trying checking with the DVLA to see if UKCPM have accessed the keeper's details? Looks like the pic was taken by a neighbour on a commission. Pretty poor pics.

I lost in court today to another parking company.
I feel the system is stacked against me as a black woman. ( I was warned about this, but I was so disgusted at the injustice of my ticket, that I sought to right a wrong) My mum is ill, we are in the middle of major building works and i really don't have the capacity to fight this at this time. How do I withdraw at the lowest cost. I have had to borrow the money to pay for todays loss £220.


Which court was this? If you feel you have been disadvantaged then you can actually take up the issue with the appropriate body.

https://www.gov.uk/complain-judge-magistrat...ribunal-coroner

It would be advisable to get a full transcript of the proceedings (may cost a bit but you can get an estimated cost first). You can then go through the text to see if there was an issue with their behaviour, language or conduct. You can't re-run the case though unless you appeal on fact or law. Courts are intended to be unequivocally fair to all irrespective of background and if they are not, you need to flag it up.
