    Photo 'evidence' received.

    Photo 'evidence' received. 15th Mar 17 at 9:40 PM
    I have a court date set. My case is a pre-Oct 2012 one.

    Is the claimant's solicitor likely to produce the photo evidence in court? This is a pay and display case where they claim the driver stayed longer than the ticket allowed. No ANPR is involved. They have sent me the photo evidence.

    In a letter, the claimant claimed that the driver drove off before the parking attendant had time to place the ticket on the car but the attendant's hand-written note says it was handed back by the driver. I've only just discovered this so I didn't mention it in my defence. Is it worth mentioning in my witness statement?

    The photos are stamped with a date and the 'ticket' refers to their existence. I won't be calling the attendant as a witness and assume that nor will the claimant but I still wonder if they are likely to include the photos in their evidence (although they show or prove nothing).

    They should have included the photos with their WS, did they not?

    I haven't seen their witness statement yet and assume I won't get to see it before I've sent mine in.

    The photos I have were sent to me in response to a request for evidence. They aren't proof of anything except that my car was parked in that car park at some point. The pay and display ticket on view on the dashboard of my car which they claim was out of time, is completely illegible.

    I certainly will post a copy of my witness statement! The date is still a month or so away but I will try to get it written up soon!
