    SIP informed that i was driving does it reset to the start 15th Jun 17 at 2:30 PM
    HI all,

    SIP have been given my details as the driver, which i was ok with as i was the driver but they are hounding me from where they left off with the keeper who is disabled.

    I assumed it would reset and go back to the original amount. Since they have my details i have had NTND on 5/6/17 for £100 8/6/17 final reminder £125 14/6/17 notice to of impending legal action £125. Is this right? What could I do about it.

    I feel i have a strong case as we had a ticket which was in time, reason for the notice was no displayed blue badge.
    Thanks

    You'll have to argue this at court, so it doesn't really matter what they're asking for, your aim is to win the case and pay zilch.

    There is no appeal with an IPC operator that you are ever likely to win - so a judge will have to adjudicate.

    Come back if you get a LBA or court papers.
    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.

    Is it right - probably not, but who you going to call? We're the nearest you've got to Ghostbusters, I'm afraid. . The Government are showing precious little interest in bringing the skimdustry to heel.

    Hi,

    I have posted before and was told to come back when the LBC letter arrived, which it did last week from Gladstones.

    Short story is I was the driver of a disabled drivers car ( i owned up to it) and i had displayed a car parking ticket but the disabled badge fell off the dashboard, of which I do have a good reason why it fell off, the lady who car it was had fallen and I rushed to pick her up and that the badge fell onto the chair! This can be proven as the next day I took the lady to the GP's as she had a bad bruise.

    Is there anyway I should offer a small amount and hope it does not go to court? I am not very good at wording a defence if it came to it!

    I am so angry as an over zealous parking attendant was watching me struggle with four ladies who all have learning disabilities and the wheel char is clearly visible in the boot.

    Any help would be appreciated - thank you!

    So now re-read the NEWBIES thread post #2 and the linked examples of replies to LBCs. Copy and adapt one.

    Hi again,

    I have received the claim form from Northampton dated 4/8/17 I have just come back from holiday and yesterday I have extended the date on MCOL.

    What do I put on the defence? I really am hopeless at this kind of thing and would need good guidance to guide me through this mind field.

    To summarise:-
    Received notice on 27/2/17- falling to display blue badge, paid for parking. Notice sent to NTK (not driver)
    27/2/17 - wrote to SIP disputed stating mitigating circumstances. (learning disabled lady fell while I was displaying ticket and disabled badge fell onto the floor, in my haste to run and help her up. this can be backed up with GP's as she had to attend them the next day due to large bruise)
    17/03/17 dispute - rejected
    10/5/17 payment overdue letter £115
    27/5/17 letter stating I was the driver
    30/5/17 final reminder £125 to NTK
    5/6/17 I received notice to named driver £100
    8/8/17 final reminder £125
    14/6/17 notice of impending legal action
    4/8/17 court claim form £239.53

    Wouldn't it be great of there was a thread at the top of the forum, providing guidance, links and templates about what to do, including example defences, and guidance to guide newbies through to their hearing and win...!

    Hi, is it really worth contesting it as it was human error that the badge fell off?

    Really? A flawless record against Gladstones and you ask that? It's your money I suppose, if you can afford to give it away so easily.
