It says in this article that the accused ignored requests to say who was driving his car as he is OBLIGED to do..... .I thought it was the Registered Keeper who was respomsible regardless who was driving .What difference would it have made if he had disclosed who was driving ....is there a stage when a RK has the opportunity to say who WAS driving ?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-south-scotland-47583209
"A man has been hit with a four-figure fine after ignoring 21 parking tickets.

Supermarket manager David Humphries, 50, of Hawick, used a pay-and-display area behind the Iceland store in Galashiels where he works.

However, he never paid a string of tickets on his car or answered council letters asking him to reveal who was driving at the time.

He admitted 21 charges at Selkirk JP Court and was fined £60 for each - a total of £1,260.

A bill of £1,260 is also outstanding for the original parking offences between April and July last year.

Procurator fiscal Graham Fraser told the court that there was no CCTV in the car park showing who had come to collect the car on the days of the offences and Humphries had never informed the council of the identity of the driver despite the repeated requests."

Hi

No I havent had confirmation about when they put the warnings up - do I ask for that prior to contesting?

and yes it was hoisted and placed elsewhere? - i haven't had it inspected yet, I wanted to see my grounds for fighting the ticket first, and then I could look into this.


Others more knowledgeable will advise I'm sure but if you parked before the warning notice was put in place and you then went on holiday that is a different scenario from one where the notice was already there when you parked ( and would have been seen by you ) and you would have been aware that you needed to move the car before the suspension started .

See this and update your post accordingly: http://forums.pepipoo.com/index.php?showtopic=125502



Apologies, have done this now

Do you know when they put the warning on the post?
Can you explain more about the alleged damage to your car...have you had it examined by someone?...when uou say "towed" I presume you mean it was hoisted and placed elsewhere?...could have been worse and put in a pound.

These are the council pictures, i didn't take any
he = traffic warden, no sexism intended



lol....silly me thought your post meant he CAR was moved not the PNC ... Usual practice of not taking a picture that clearly shows the relation between the end of the car and the dropped kerb ........
..... standing on the pavement and taking a picture to include the rear of the car AND the kerb would have shown the true situation .

only 1 pcn, i presume he moved it for the picture


"I got this ticket for parking in front of a dropped kerb - but I clearly wasnt!"

Who is "HE"

Are the pics you posted by the car owner or the Council......if by the car owner are there Council pics available as they should give a clearer view of the car parked in relation to the dropped kerb.

I disagree. The letter clearly states the keeper was not driving.

They'll do their thing no matter what - but I don't believe they issue claims in Scotland currently?


You disagree with what ? Surely the usual advice in Scotland is to ignore and not to disclose who the driver is ...as they need this piece of info to take things further .

We can well understand why you think sending that letter to them is a good idea but it will do no good other than give you some satisfaction . Do you have a shredder or a DELETE button ....Use them and get on with your life . If you get any further letters from them then you could file them somewhere marked IGNORE unless it relates to COURT ( which it won't) . By replying in any shape or form ( getting involved in correspondence ) there is a danger you give the game away as to who the driver was.

Just before Christmas, I carried out some work on two vintage audio items. The customer lives approx 150 miles from where I'm based.



That's a long way to travel to get/Return the items .

Was your customer aware of an estimated cost before or after you were able to examine them ...and did she agree to the cost .

What was wrong with the items before you repaired them and did you correct whatever was wrong and were the items working ........Is she now saying its the same fault or is her complaint about a new fault ...........you say you delivered ONE of the items ..How did you get the other item back to her . Was using a courier not an option.?

Can you say what exactly was wrong with the items .

My advice as well as others is that they approach the Council to suggest they take a more reasonable approach and that from February 1st, they all park with all four wheels on the road and let the Council deal with the ensuing problems.

Perhaps contact a Senior person in the Local Fire and Ŕescue expressing residents concerns about FIRE APPLIANCE access being affected if these restrictions go ahead.

Hi All

My wife got a letter to ask who was driving the car when it did 57 in a 50. She said it was me.

I have now had another NIP addressed to me asking for the same info. Offence dates 19/11/2018

Does a 14 day rule apply?

Thanks

Dillon


The ( VERY) first one would be sent to whoever is named on the V5c Do you know who that is and have you seen the V5c and when they got the initial notice .Could it be a Rental or Leasing company?

Hi all, i sold my vehicle late november. I have received the attached letter today saying the vehicle was picked up and impounded in december. This is the first i am hearing of it (i hope because its not my vehicle), usual notification to dvla sent when vehicle was sold.

As this is a large amount they are asking for, does anyone have a template letter they can provide me to assist me writing to them informing them of this?.

Letter is here: https://imgur.com/a/aOa8BfY

Thanks in advance.


Did you get anything back confirming you had disposed of the vehicle. If not did you not follow it up?

Hi,

As you have read briefly I was pulled over by police and was shown a radar speed gun and it showed the numbers of 61mph and the officer said that was my speed. Ive had my license for a year but im new at driving and only been driving for 3 weeks or less. The zone that it said i was doing 61 mph was a 40pmh zone. I told the officer that wasnt the speed i was going. He said that it was. He had no video evidence or anything else except for the speed gun. I didnt once admit that i was guilty of speeding. The officer said i will recieve a letter within 6 months and i asked what the letter will entail and he told me most likely a fine and 3 points. I told him again i wasnt speeding and then he just told me to drive safe and went back into his car after he was done talking. Is having a speed gun as the only evidence in court a strong case as he could have measured someone else speeding other than me. And if i do go to court and lose the case will i get more points than the initial amount which was 3 and i already know if i go to court and i lose the case i will get a much higher fine but im willing to risk that and also im willing to pay for a good solicitor/lawyer to help me try win the case. Can anyone tell me all the consequences if i do not win the case because if i do lose the case it will
Be impossible for me to get insured and go to work as i work 45 minutes away in the car and it takes about 2 hours on public transport.

Others will comment but nothing you have said above suggests you have a defence.If you get a COFP ( CONDITIONAL OFFER OF A FIXED PENALTY) take it.
Check yiur policy to see when/if you need to tell your indurers about any speeding offences and remind uourself you are a " New Driver" and there are strictures in the first 2 years of passing your test.

Parked on a piece of derelict land which I believe is waiting for development. It is near parking bays so the parking attendant must be blind to think I was attempting to park within a bay.

I have the parking wardens photos but don't know how to add them to the thread.

Usual requirement is to post scans or pics of wharever paperworkbyou received ( with the usual parts redacted) and the Council pics as well. Use an external host like Imgur or Flickr and post the links starting/ ending [IMG]
A link to Google Stréet View would help as well

Nope. Mastercard.

Chargebacks can be requested for both Visa and Mastercard Debit cards if this is appropriate in your case.

Debit card.

No help to you but what a stupid arrangement- why not get rid of the island and just make that a " Bus Stop" with a pull in for the buses- appears to be enough room to do that

You could go online and update the V5C now, any update will be on the PNC Tuesday.

You could leave it two weeks and then call the Police if you know who operates that camera?

Can you update your V5c address online now-I thought it had to be done by post

Good morning,

Last night I was driving back to come back home and my GPS drove me through Coventry city centre. It was almost 1 a.m. in the night and I did not know the road.

So it wasn't last night -it was about 2 weeks ago?
