Hello!

I got a PCN for the ULEZ on bank holiday Monday after having the presence of mind to check that the congestion charging wasn't in force! I was aware that there are emission rules but have never really thought they applied to my car. I'm OK in low emission zones but not ultra low (I've checked online). I imagine that this one is a 'fair cop' as I was completely oblivious (a) to any need to pay attention to these rules, and (b) any signs or other warnings as I was driving into the zone. Ignorance being no excuse, of course.

However, is there any hope of avoiding the £80 fine?

Thanks

PS: given there is ANPR everywhere, why not simply allow road users to be able to register for any fees and tolls occurred nationwide to be billed after the event, thereby removing the need to fine those who've signed up? Could it be that they make more money this way? I bet there's a real spike in PCNs in the ULEZ on bank holidays.

With respect, this is semantics.

The findings of fact are clear; they will not be overturned.

I don't think this is semantics in that I'm not using 'rotated' and 'obscured' to refer to the same sign or signage issue.

There are two signs at the boundary, left and right, and two separate issues. The left one was rotated, which the adj considered. The right sign is obscured, almost entirely hidden out of view behind a traffic light unit and post. This issue was not referred to at all in the decision letter.

I'm sorry if this was clear to you and I didn't understand your semantics point.
