    BW Legal First Letter

    BW Legal First Letter 3rd Apr 17 at 4:33 PM
    Hi all


    I have received the first letter from BW legal asking for £160 for stopping for less than a minute at Liverpool airport in December 2016.


    I appealed and lost (as I knew the case would be).


    Interestingly BW legal are saying that I didn't appeal within 28 days of the PCN charge. I did and still have the email.


    What am I likely to receive from these people in the future as I have no intention of paying?


    I have looked around on the forum for hours and am finding it hard as to what to do next. Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

    Just got a letter from BW acknowledging my recent communications and that they have noted my position.

    They say that they will now seek their clients instructions to issue county court proceedings for recovery of the balance.

    Is this a significant letter that I should reply back to ?

    One of the standard responses we've seen many times. What were you thinking of saying to them in replying?
    We cannot provide you with a silver bullet to get you out of this. You have to be in for the long run, and need to involve yourself in research and work for you to get rid of this. It is not simple. We will help, but can't do it for you.

    No harm in doing that. But are they pursuing you for penalties under bylaws (6 months) or contractual charges (6 years)?

    No. BWL's LBC are headed "letter of claim"

    I wouldn't bother replying to this latest letter. But if you get a final notice or LBC then just send a very short reply denying the claim for the reasons you have already stated.
