    Petrol Station Parking Ticket

    Petrol Station Parking Ticket 15th Jul 17 at 3:40 PM
    have asked the judge to 'hear the case on papers only' which I have rejected, which I guess means they have no intention of showing up.

    In case they do, my defence is simply that:
    1. I was a customer using the toilet, - receipt as evidence.
    2. They are lying about giving me a ticket - CCTV will verify, but they wont show it as it would obviously prove they are lying. (I'll take a photo with me of the camera that was pointing directly at my car.)
    3. I've attached 2 photos I'll take with me that show the judge they deliberately hide the no parking sign behind a huge sign, so you cant see it as you drive it.

    Anyone see any issues with that plan?
    TIA

    ...Just started small claims court process, they (Gladstones solicitors) have asked the judge to 'hear the case on papers only' which I have rejected, which I guess means they have no intention of showing up.

    In case they do, my defence is simply that:
    1. I was a customer using the toilet, - receipt as evidence.
    2. They are lying about giving me a ticket - CCTV will verify, but they wont show it as it would obviously prove they are lying. (I'll take a photo with me of the camera that was pointing directly at my car.)
    3. I've attached 2 photos I'll take with me that show the judge they deliberately hide the no parking sign behind a huge sign, so you cant see it as you drive it.

    Anyone see any issues with that plan?

    Well.....you read it wrong that they won't show up just because you refused the "papers only" decision


    And that defence won't work


    Everyone is politely asked to read the newbies faq thread near the top of the forum before starting a new thread.


    Lots of advice there on preparing your defence.


    After constructing it put it up here for comments


    The advice throughout is never to reveal who was driving - so edit your post to remove those details. The ppcs monitor this forum and can use your posts against you

    a "month later" seems to make a mokery of POFa 2012 when its an ANPR ticket , do you suspect that the photos are stills from a CCTV system ?

    What did your defence actually say, word for word.

    We want to see what your defence said, first. Exact words. It might work but it seemed sparse.
