    Whatever you think about Brexit or the landslide win by Donald Trump, it is clear the people no longer accept the establishment and just as Trump has whooped the establishment, Mrs May will probably be next unless she gets her ministers in order and indeed her own act in order ...... just try a general election Theresa ???

    Theresa May has pledged to root out abuse of county court judgments following a Daily Mail investigation.

    Is Mrs May really up to the job ??

    It is the heat UMKO 27 at 7am with 70%+ humidity.


    Also, seeing how different countries tackle parking. Here in Spain the council has cleared masses of unbuilt land a few minutes walk


    If you want tyo park closer to the beach the cost is 60 cents an hour. If you bilk or overstay you get fined €3.00 which you can pay at the meter.


    They seem to be under the impression that free parking encourages people to spend that money at the bars and restaurants. Dunny people these furriners.

    Some action at last:

    http://services.parliament.uk/bills/2017-19/parkingcodeofpractice.html

    This Private Member's Bill has Government and cross-party support, and stands a good chance of making it into statute.

    The full text of the clauses will be published nearer the date of the second reading, but my sources tell me it's something we should support.

    Now would be a good time to write to your MP urging them to support it.
    Speeding cases fought: 24 (3 of mine, 21 for others). Cases won: 20. Points on licence: 0. Private Parking Court Cases: Won 29. Lost 9.

    Yes, especially if anyone here has a tale to tell about a fake PCN...oh wait...we all do - even those who haven't had one themselves, have a friend who has been ripped off, or have read about a real eye-opener of a scam (or a hundred) just by being here.

    Everyone reading this, please take time to write to your MP now. NOW. Please...

    Tell them how you suffered and how this situation is worse than clamping was, as people are held to ransom for double or even triple the ''parking charge'', sometimes escalating from an already exorbitant £100, up to £300 for no reason whatsoever.

    Being 'credit clamped' for six years by this nasty bunch of cowboys, or getting a default CCJ for £300 sent to an old address deliberately after years of silence, and losing a house purchase over it, is far worse than being clamped then released for £75.

    If it introduces a code of practice into legislation then private parking is here to stay!

    It's here to stay anyway, and legislation is the only way to rein them in.

    Why should the DVLC be banned from selling data?


    You would not believe how many scumbags use my private parking space to save a few quid on the multi story car park 30 yards away.
    You never know how far you can go until you go too far.

    looks good as far as setting out the rules and having proper forms to go back and forth

    doesnt mention anything about checking for an up to date address before sending out the forms , so it could go to an old address like now and not be seen for over 30 days or more anyway

    unless there will be some sort of system that ensures they have identified the correct address for the alleged debtor ?

    but a vast improvement on what goes on now and only less than 5 weeks to go

    so thanks for the link and the heads up
    Newbies !!
    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se

    I thought she stated that she was going to bring an end to "crefit clamping", where the person was taken to court in there absence , and found out about a CCJ much later

    I see she has addressed this rather well (or not)

    Redx has a good point saying ....
    "doesnt mention anything about checking for an up to date address before sending out the forms , so it could go to an old address like now and not be seen for over 30 days or more anyway"

    3.4 If the debtor does not reply to the Letter of Claim within 30 days of the date at the top of the letter, the creditor may start court proceedings, subject to any
    remaining obligations the creditor may have to the debtor (for example, under
    the Financial Conduct Authority’s Handbook). Account should be taken of the
    possibility that a reply was posted towards the end of the 30-day period.

    And that's what this CCJ problem is all about .... not knowing about
    a Letter of claim in the first place ?

    So probably the robo-claims bunch will have a field day
    for the next month now
