    Good result for the lady. Very interesting that the Judge found in her favour despite a totally incorrect VRM being input. I could understand if it was a transposition issue, but a wholly different VRM?

    I note the sour reaction from Excel - similar to their response to the Cutts case.

    Nevertheless, a useful reference point for any other motorist facing the same issue.

    @Elysander - thanks for the heads up on this.
    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.

    And Excel say ...
    'We are currently considering our position in relation to the judge’s decision and will refrain from any further comment at this stage while the matter is ongoing.'


    In English this means ..
    "We screwed up again together with our legals"

    307 people commented on the DM article, that probably at least 250 people who will not put up with Excel's nonsense in future.

    This court win will only encourage more illegal parking that will become ever more problematical until we introduce prison sentences for this.
    The username says it all!

    Looking at the username and location, more likely gertcha.

    Some of the commenters on the Daily Mail are trolls pure and simple, there was another story on there about a lady getting charged for being ever so slightly over the white line of an end bay being hounded by another PPC.
