    Traffic Management Act 2004

    Traffic Management Act 2004 10th Feb 18 at 7:39 PM
    I wonder how many people assume that their local authority has abided by the Traffic Management Act 2004 when in fact, they haven't. Local Authorities have a duty to consult and then publicise changes to traffic management and this includes parking. They can't just put up a sign about parking restrictions in the hope that everyone sees what the new rules are. I believe that if they did issue a PCN that it would be invalid. What do you think?

    I think that you have posted on the wrong board.
    You never know how far you can go until you go too far.

    TMA 2004 has nothing to do with private parking, so any thoughts are kind-of surplus.

    Not the wrong board, because this is a parking tickets forum. We just choose to refer everything to pepipoo as they have more experts there about the TMA and Council PCNs.

    However the above is quite a vague post, not about a PCN. I do agree that most people don't realise that MOST Council PCNs are perfectly able to be cancelled on appeal, and that all they need to do is gather evidence, get themselves on pepipoo and realise that the first appeal is likely not to be the winning stage, but the second stage or Adjudication IS likely to be won, IMHO in most cases.

    Because yes, Councils screw up Traffic Orders and signs & lines and PCNs, and CEOs make errors.
    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:
    Top of the page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.
