Glasgow City Council have backed out of a fight over a PCN I recieved in April. They stood up to all appeals until I took them to SPAS. Word was that Glasgow was the only council seeking adjournments on appeals quoting the Jackson rulling. All the other DPE councils in Scotland were capitulating. I got word today Glasgow have cancelled my ticket before the appeal took place. biggrin.gif Maybe it was because I had sent SPAS the evidence to get them on 7 different failings. Only the evidence was submited because the grounds were listed on a seperate sheet. The wrong document was printed off so the only grounds for appeal on the form sent in was Jackson's ruling.

Hi there - I got a Parking Charge Notice from Civil Enforcement Ltd on 22/11 for parking in McDonalds at Gatwick South on 24/10 at 05.36am until 07.01am.

They wanted £150 or £75 if paid within 14 days. I therefore decided to do some research and after trying to get hold of Civil Enforcement in Nottingham and telephoning McDonalds I came across this GREAT Forum.

I therefore decided to appeal using some of the material on here and sent a letter as follows :-

27 November 2006
Civil Enforcement Ltd
DBH House
Carlton Square
Nottingham

NG4 3BP Ref PCN **********

Dear Sir or Madam
:
I refer to the above PCN dated 22/11/2006 which was sent to me as the Registered Keeper of this vehicle. As you are aware this incident is covered by Contract Law which can only be agreed by the parties that entered in to the contract.. In this case the driver of the vehicle who may or may not have read the sign.

As I was NOT driving the vehicle I am NOT responsible for the payment of this Parking Charge Notice and owe you NOTHING..

This vehicle is used by several drivers so please supply your photographic evidence. These should be a clear and concise picture of the driver of the vehicle so I can attempt to identify which driver entered in to this contract.

The photographs should show the time and date of the incident and be accompanied by a copy of the latest calibration certificates from the independent contractor that verifies the timings of the cameras that take these photographs. Also supply a copy of the Parking Charge Terms and Conditons plus evidence of under whose authority you are acting.

Unless you can supply ALL this information within 7 days I am afraid I can help you no further and ask that you cancel this notice forthwith.


Yours sincerely


Cuff Em & Stuff Em


GUESS WHAT ? - Today 5/12 I received a postcard from Civil Enforcement postmarked "lLondon"

Dear Sir/Madam

Your Parking Charge Appeal

We refer to you correspondence in respect of the Parking Charge Notice that we recently issued to you.

We are pleased to inform you that this ticket has now been cancelled.

Yours Faithfully

Civil Enforcement



THANK YOU EVERYONE - I couldn't have done it without your help !!

Do Not PAY these Thieving SCUMBAGS

I've been a member of this forum for a while now. I joined when I got a NIP for speeding a few years ago. I used the PACE letter which at that stage was a relatively new wheeze and it did the trick - the speeding offence timed out and I've heard nothing since. Anyway, I've got a new (and slower) car now and so have had no bother from Plod. This means that last year I found myself scratching around trying to find something to occupy me in my spare time. And then a parking attendant working for Parkwise (Preston) fixed a PCN to my Dad's van whilst he was unloading in a residents only bay....

My dad's case got all the way to appeal. I raised four grounds of appeal of which NPAS rejected three and accepted one - the markings and signage on the road where the alleged contravention took place were inadequate. Result: Appeal upheld by NPAS, PCN cancelled.

Around the time the NPAS decision came through my brother got a PCN for overstaying in a different parking bay. Again the road markings were inadequate but Parkwise messed the documents up and I was too late to get my appeal in (on that point all I'm saying is that I wish I knew then what I know now...) so my brother ended up paying that one.

Shortly afterwards a friend got a PCN for overstaying on the same stretch of parking bay. This time I was more on the ball - the road markings were still inadequate and again it got to appeal. This time Parkwise offered no contest. Result: Appeal upheld by NPAS, PCN cancelled.

{Edit!} Almost forgot! In amongst all this I got a ticket for failing to display on a council owned car park. I park on the same car park everyday but for some reason this particular day I forgot to pay. What made this interesting was the fact that my car was registered to my brother. I bought it off him and as we live at the same address, there didn't seem any point in updating the info with DVLA. My brother received the NTO and I wrote him an appeal on the basis of him rebutting the presumption of ownership of the vehicle. Parkwise offered no evidence in the appeal. Result: Appeal upheld by NPAS and PCN cancelled.

So its 3:1 to me. That could be about to change, however. I still have the PCN issued to my brother and it only has one date on it. Yesterday I sent my claim for restitution....

Fingers crossed.

Hi Do you still have your PCN from Bolton I have 2 PCN's from december paid first PCN then challenged it, waiting for reply and waiting for NTO for 2nd PCn so I can appeal to NPAS hopefully on wording of PCN's.

Ticketed on a very poorly signed bus stop. Half the road markings were gone where tarmac had been replaced. Sign facing away from road(warden took photo of this?) excl.gif

Sent letters to Parking Services (NCP) and head of parking for borough detailing what road markings and signs should be there. One letter brushing off the subject and asking for the fine to be paid was sent to me. I sent another firmer letter stating I would like an opportunity in front of adjudicator and if they asked for fine money again legal proceedings would start against them.

Result:

Letter of apology from head of parking (now framed) confirming that road markings are 'not sufficient' icon_hang.gif (free parking!!) and ticket is canceled! biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Bentley v Croydon Council

Received a PCN via CCTV at Westow hill in Crystal Palace for waiting on a double yellow lines.
The PCN was delivered via the post but did not allow 30 days from when the PCN was recieved (i.e. 2 days later) Thus cutting short the time to pay the fine, and therefore rendering the PCN un-enforcable.

Although this never went to court I still managed to get the PCN cancelled on these grounds
Thanks to everyone who chipped in with ideas
Scott

Another dozen or more success stories can be found if you follow the link on this website to Parking Tickets relating to BP and Wild Bean Cafe at Gatwick. Probably best to start beyond page 30 unless you have a spare couple of hours to read everything.

Hi
My nephew received 2 PCN's for unenforceable lines in Atherton Greater Manchester, first PCN payment was returned and 2nd PCN cancelled, the Traffic order TRO was also out of order as it had not been amended when a T bar was moved making the Dubyells illegal, as there was 3 T bars on one line.

I had my PCN cancelled by manchester council. I sent representations against the NTO stating incorrect/predudicial wording on the PCN as well as invalid controlled zone due to tarmac'd over yellow lines - they rejected all the points in their reply but still cancelled ticket biggrin.gif

PCN received for "failing to display a valid pay and display ticket". Ticket fell off windscreen but it was valid. First appeal was rejected. Received NTO and appealed with a polite and precise statement on the grounds that a contravention did not occur and sent a copy of the valid ticket. Received letter back from Council saying after careful consideration my appeal would be upheld on this occasion. Yay!
