Dear Forum members, I got this PCN letter for a left turn that was done unknowingly at a junction where it isn't permitted.
The letter is attached. It confusingly says I have to pay by a certain date but the amount is £0 and there is a big watermark saying "WARNING" across the letter.

Should I ignore it? Am worried theyll sayI exceed the time limit and suddenly up the amount. Or am I in my rights to not do anything as it clearly says £0 and "Warning"?

Please advise?!

Needs to be in the decriminalised (council) part of the forum.

If a mod doesn't notice soon then hit the '! Report' button and ask nicely... wink.gif

Then pay it😉.

Mr Mustard who is as his name suggests particularly as regards Barnet might know whether this is a method the authority use to fire a warning shot across motorists' bows and hopefully he'll post soon.

There's nothing for you to worry about because they cannot issue another PCN.

I think that is what is called a "get out of jail free card"

But you must not ignore.
And do keep that PCN safe

Challenge as per instructions on the back.
As the PCN fails to contain mandatory information regarding the amount due, this is a fatal error that must lead to cancelation.
Please confirm
Hugs and Kisses.

Or write a cheque for £0.00 and send it to them with proof of delivery and keep photographic proof of the cheque.

Thank you for the responses folks

Slightly confused, am hearing I don't need to worry as its a warning shot, but on the other hand that i should challenge it (but on the reverse there was no details on how, that was all online I think at http://barnet.gov.uk/mct ) and it stated on there that u accept blame if you click to dispute. So I was trying to avoid that just in case, and got in touch with you guys first!

Help ! smile.gif

What do you mean, nothing on back?
I also assumed that you had blanked dates, pcn number etc on top right?
Was anything there ?

Mind you, would seem to confirm warning notice only.
And if missing mandatory info that has to be on a PCN, not a PCN.
And therefore safe to ignore.

Keep it safe

The back of the letter which i attached earlier only has a small paragaprah blub about data protection, nothing more!
