accepting an FPN is not an admission of guilt, there is no judicial process involved in an FPN.
accepting an FPN merely disposes of the matter and avoids prosecution. no prosecution, no case in court, no guilt.

If a person running a business cannot be bothered to look up all the applicable laws that apply to them, then they deserve a fine.

that would require them looking up the whole of the law - to find out what applies to them.
the real world doesn't work that way.

VPNs are not a silver bullet. there is much more to it that just using a VPN
there is no privacy on-line no matter what you do.

What you could do is to raise the stakes such that only state level actors would be capable of 'digging you out'. However there are very very few folks who can configure and use systems to such a high level. and it only takes one lapse in OpSec to blow the gaff.

that said, strong encryption is a good thing, just make sure your key management - and key entropy !! - are sound.

Anyone who thinks that "if you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear" is a sound argument, it isn't it is a false dichotomy - and I will be around tomorrow to fit cameras in your bathroom....

I have seen funerals mentioned in exemptions in TROs.

sounds like sensible council policy regardless - and how often do you see that.

IIRC CEOs don't technically have discretion - as, inter alia, that opens the door to 'free parking if you slip the CEO a tenner' type stuff.
I have seen them wilfully ignore blatant DYL cars when doing a whole row.
Found out it was a white listed car run by someone from the council when parking near council offices and seeing the same miscreant parker but this time with a council 'pass' on the dashboard.
all kinds of reasons why they don't ticket some cars - but only one reason why they do issue....

there was plenty there to get the victory and you stuck to your guns with what seems to have been an initially reluctant adj.

This will of course having nothing at all to do with all off-street revenue going straight into the council's General Fund and not being ring fenced for 'transport'.
I will odds that NSL have already or will have soon 'a guy on a scooter/moped' (and not in a CEO uniform) popping in at the key times so as paper the victims miscreants.

The (shoddy IMO) attempt in the byelaws to nail the RK/Owner are in the minds of many ultra vires as the enabling legislation which clearly scopes what the byelaws can address and only allows the byelaws to regulate people 'while on the premises'.
byelaws have a (small) jurisdictional boundary they do no extend across the UK to wherever the RK/Owner may be. PPCs and TOCs seem to be err 'wilfully ignorant' of this. Of course they are not ignorant of it at all. They are operating in the land of torts-a-plenty IMO - and I reckon they know they.

"the summons and all subsequent proceedings shall be void."
This.

If you can't get them to cancel in advance (in writing !) - though they should do so readily - then turn up at court and get your costs

DVLA request costs them £2.50 (plus a few tens of pennies)
That should tell you what kind of an organisation they are.

The £40 'threat' is probably just to make the panicked and unknowing write back with reams of info that makes the PPC's case for them.

Hi, I've contacted BMPA and had a reply. At the moment no one has got back to them. however, they have asked me to confirm who was driving and if that information has been made available to the other side? I've not replied yet and am apprehensive about naming the driving, as I've always been told never to name the driver. What do you all suggest here? I need to email all documents over too.

Tell bmpa everything, you hold any facts back and they can bite you in the ar$e should it get as far as court. you can and should tell bmpa everything they want - they are not 'PPCs in disguise' nor 'out to do you'.
As PPCs hang around on here never discuss who was driving on the open forum - or via PM with posters you do have no reason to trust. PPCs have been known to hang out on and via PM to mess people's cases up.
DC has an impressive record in PPC cases and a lot of experience. His paperwork gets compliments from the bench.
As I said previously bmpa and DC are the way to go.
Doubly so as VCS are chancing their arm (and much more besides) with a byelaw case.

No, that is irrelevant to the case (albeit a true fact)

I suppose 1 in 1000 would do nicely.


A colleague's wife did this, except didn't hit enter.

DOB, NI, credit card, bank account, everything.

There were fears that that logging took place on data entry (as opposed to when you hit enter) but so far nothing has been stolen

Stay alert on it, it is a valid fear. javascript can send back your tying in a web page on the fly.

quite some time ago the garage that serviced my vehicle didn't send me the usual MOT reminder. I inadvertently drove for almost a year without one. Did a lot miles and never stopped. Mind you the vehicle was kept ship shape and tickety boo during this period regardless of MOT.
Of course my experience doesn't mean squat in the scheme of things.

Do you know what peter means by the criminal offence?


No - I'm guessing that it may just be the Highway Code - you need to move to the left lane if it's free.

err the Highway Code is NOT law.
the Code itself tells you its applicability and uses.

The bus lane penalty notice is based on sect. 144 Transport Act 2000. According to legislation.gov.uk viewable here this section has been repealed. It will not harm you to print section 144 and send it to the council and tribunal asking why was a bus lane penalty notice served using the Transport Act 2000 when the government website says the relevant empowering section has been repealed. I can explain it but putting it to Manchester or the tribunal is a reasonable thing to do.


Best advice I can give is ignore this person they are a TROLL


I believe you are mistaken. I can see nothing in his/her posts that support that conclusion.
I can see plenty of in-depth knowledge in the posts.

+1

and welcome to the forum - good to see that level of in depth knowledge

be aware that the normal M.O. on pepipoo is to see if a poster's info/assistance 'holds up'.
aka "the many eyes of pepipoo"
As financial penalties (and sometimes criminal ones) are at stake 'test by fire' is the best way to avoid someone being landed in it when their case gets to tribunal (or court).
Its nothing personal, just a method of reassurance for the posters facing penalties.

when this was tried previously didn't the prosecution fail as they could not prove that the drivers being flashed were exceeding the speed limit at the time they were flashed.
