Hi there

I received today (14 Feb) a PCN from Islington Council via a hire car company. It alleges I drove a hire car in a pedestrian zone at 0840 on 17 DEC 2019 -- Elizabeth Avenue (Northbound) in London N1. (CODE:53J Failing to comply with a restriction on vehicles entering a pedestrian zone)

It appears to be the car I hired during the hire period in the pictures and video. But I had no idea I had driven in a pedestrian zone. On Googlemaps it looks like a normal road.

I don't recall any signs forbidding car access, and there were obviously no bollards or gate preventing car entry.

Of course, I would not knowingly drive somewhere that is not open to cars.

Is there a way to challenge this PCN as it seems very unfair!

PCN is attached

Many thanks in advance for any advice you have
Rich

It's a school street that bans vehicles except for exempt ones at school opening and closing times.

Is the PCN in your name? That's the first thing to check.

There's nothing you can do unless you have a PCN in your name - except pay it of course, which you may want to do if the discount is available.

We can look at the PCN and video though - I'm familiar with this one and it the signage is an issue when turning off New North Raod which I think is the northbound one.

Well you have to wait until Islington sends you a PCN in your own name.

The PCN has been served out of time on the hire company, assuming ER Travel Services Ltd is the hire company - well past 28 days.

Unless the hire company has the car on lease / finance and someone else has the V5C.

I think most lease agreements forbid onward rental but you may be right.
