LAMBETH PARKING THIEVES
I confirm that the thieves who run Control Plus on behalf of Lambeth Council are true rogues.

I had a parking ticket at 9.50pm one night just five minutes after returning home. I parked outside my drive (on my white line) but normally on the road. There are no yellow lines so they gave me a ticket for parking on the pavement; except it was on the road normally parked. In fact I had castigated my wife for parking on the pavement a few days before and told her to pay up. So, I was especially surprised to get this ticket.

The attitude of the staff was by and large horrendous. I spoke on the telephone to them and they said I would need to write in, especially with regard to photos they allegedly took (which I was please to hear about). After calling back 2 weeks later, I asked when the photo was going to be sent to me. They said I wasn’t specific enough because I had only said “I hear you have a photo of the alleged incident so I will be very please to view any”. I told them that I was trying to be polite. So, I wrote again and said “please send me copies of your photos”. By this time the number of photos had been breeding and had multiplied from one to five, apparently.

Another 2 weeks passed and I called up again, asking when I would receive the photos. I was told “didn’t anyone tell you? Your ticket was cancelled”. What a surprise!

I am now fighting a PCN issued on worn out yellow lines, and they are ignoring the points I raise about them being unregulated.

January 2007 nephew got PCN for being parked 6 inches over a DYL, he paid it then got another PCN same spot, I checked it out, it had 3 T bars on the line. I got his £30 refunded and his 2nd one cancelled. also checked the TRO it was invalid as it had not been amended when the shortened the DYL to make more room for residents parking, forced wigan Council to pay back over £100 for 35 penalty charges issued on same DYL.

June 2007 appeal I took to NPAS on behalf of my D.I.L the appeal is now known as Pilkington v Bolton Council, TRO invalid due to the word Wholly missing from Condition of Use sign at entrance to every car park in Bolton over 30 signs unlawful, PCN cancelled on the basis that the sign did not comply with the TRO therfore TRO invalid, now campaiging nearly full time against Bolton lawless parking regime every TRO I have checked as been invalid.
Awaiting restitution for several cases.

Following Boxclever's advice, I had appealed to Ealing Council for a late PCN and today they cancelled the PCN.

Thank you Boxclever. Full story here: http://forums.pepipoo.com/index.php?showto...mp;#entry205227

Victory. Though I feel its kinda hollow.

Motorcycle parked on pavement outside my house adjacent to a 4m break in the double yellows which coincided with a dropped kerb. Oh and its a wide pavement so I wasnt forcing the elderly and prams into traffic.

My arguments:
Obvious one a 4m break in the lines and the council failing to maintain ect.
TRO provided for a 30m restriction which in fact measured 44m between T bars.
PCN had printed poorly and the '2' was missing off '21' on the date of contrivention.

Council rejected the lot. Break in signage didnt matter, 44m is approx 30m(!?) and they had 3 dates on their PCNs including the one on the tear off, so it went to NPAS.

NPAS rejected the 4m break in the lines as 'a break of a few feet' wouldnt invalidate the signage and the poor council cannot be expected to maintain every temporary break in the lines. Remember everyone NPAS reckon 15 feet is only 'a few' and inspite of the TRO itself showing that the council have never maintained the lines; it is only a temporary thing.

The 14m discrepancy in the actual lines and the TRO didnt even get mentioned in the judgement, unless that was part of the 'few feet'? Interesting that the council can have an approximate measurement when it comes to issuing tickets but presumably I didnt have the same argument of being approximately parked on my property.

The missing '2' off the poorly printed PCN was confirmed as indeed missing and the ticket quashed (eventually) as the PCN failed to conform with requirements.

My thanks to everyone on here as this forum has provided a lot of useful advice and good luck to everone else who is fighting against unjust tickets.

I'd also like to say to those wonderful people in parking services (who lets face it read this thing) tough. And you're lucky I'm not sueing you for the two criminal acts that I was accused of in your evidence.

Basingstoke and Deane - Parked on the clear side of a DYL Tie-bar, with no signs or lines at all.

Ticket said "Parked in a restricted street during prescribed hours" but said "Church Street" - I was in Haymarket yard, off the DYL.

Informal challenge was accepted by council after directing them to the regulations and putting them on notice that I'd take it to NPAS with costs from day 1.

I am pleased to announce, pour encourager les autres, that I have just clocked up my 25th PCN success

Most of my PCNs are contested under the loading exemption and have been against 10 different LAs.

10 of mine have gone to PATAS-including 7 which had multiple grounds including Lukha and one went to PATAS appeal which was won on the 2 dates issue.

For the record I don't condone indiscriminate illegal parking but I am sick of the way London PAs conduct their business and IMHO lie and cheat to help the Councils to our hard earned cash.

I received 2 tickets for 2 separate offences, both detailed in this thread. I have just received this, regarding the second ticket in this thread:

http://forums.pepipoo.com/index.php?showto...mp;#entry204131

QUOTE (Islington)
Dear Mr **********
Penalty Charge Notice No. IS11982845 Date of Issue 25/08/2007 at 09:25
Location of Contravention Benwell Road, N7
Thank you for your recent email.
I am writing to advise I have cancelled this Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).
To recap, the PCN was issued because the vehicle was parked in a residents or shared use parking place without clearly displaying a permit, voucher or pay and display ticket issued for that place:


I was not able to cancel the PCN on the grounds you stated. This is because the Word document you attached to your mail was inadvertently not scanned properly by my colleagues. I felt it would be inappropriate to re-request details you have already provided, so I cancelled the PCN on the basis of our mistake.
Please take care to observe on-street signage next time, so you may hopefully avoid receiving a PCN:


The appeal was emailed to them as a word document. Totally standard, nothing special about it.

I contested the claim on the incorrect bays (long single bay with double ends) and the PCN not having the required information on the front. Although its a result, I personally feel they've 'let me off' on this technicality because they don't want to set a precedent regarding the bays.

£120 saved!

Just got a result from a TFL CCTV pcn issued on Streaham Hill.
I had parked there unwittingly at 1657 and the restcrictions were no parking 7-7pm , except 10-4pm. And it was a free 1 hour park , no return blah blah.
Anyway all i saw was the free 1 hour parking, didn't read the rest properly. Got the pcn sent to my address, and staright away i picked up on the road name. They had stated that the road name was Streatham high road SW2. i wrote back and told them that for a pcn to be valid, you need the date , time, and road name where the offence took place, the road name was wrong , as Streatham high road starts 500m down the road, annd i was in fact parked on Streatham Hill.
They rejected it , went throught the notice to ownere procedure, and issued a charge notice . But i stood my ground.
Finally got the cancellation notice today, saying due to the circumstances explained in your letter , i'm cancelling the penalty charge. What a waste of time.

For your information, the road name MUST be correct, otherwise it didn't happen. It's an absolute. Think of it as a pcn with the wrong registration number for your vehicle. Will you accept they made a mistake? No , under law, it's not the same car.

So please,please CHECK your tickets properly for road names, use http://www.streetmap.co.uk.
type in the road name they have used, if it doesn't come up , then it doesn't exist. Also look for postcodes. If they have used the wrong postcode, that could work in your favour too.

We won!!!! laugh.gif
Predictably enough no-one from TPS/ Devere parking Services turned up which was a shame as it would have been fun - the judge was not exactly impressed with their claim and dismissed it in about 2 minutes flat
Thanks to all here for their help and support, it was worth the grief and stress, the judge picked up on the fact that my wife was the RK and NOT the driver so they would not have had a claim against us had they bothered to turn up.
DO NOT let these scammers bully you into paying.
We had demands, were given false informationby TPS, had 2 threats from bailiffs, threats of legal proceedings, court action and finally VICTORY!
