    Lucky it wasnt a Policeman/TW or TPCSO, its also 3 points with them. Martin cant afford a car/Taxi?
  • Praise where praise is due - Bristol City Council also cancelled a ticket with no fuss after they suspended parking our whole road, forcing everyone to take whatever space they could get.

    Shame the same common sense doesn't apply to Avon and Somerset Constabulary...

    C'mon Martin, your name alone is well enough known to get you special treatment. They bottled it rather than being exposed on TV.
    Time has moved on (much quicker than it used to - or so it seems at my age) and my previous advice on residential telephony has been or is now gradually being overtaken by changes in the retail market. Hence, I have now deleted links to my previous 'pearls of wisdom'. I sincerely hope they helped save some of you money.

    I'm sure there are zillions of Martin Lewises in London, how would they know this one was the MSE guy?

    Could this be a potential defence against the forthcoming "registered keeper liability" in Section 56 of the misnamed Protection of Freedoms Act? Name the driver as Martin Lewis? :)
    The acquisition of wealth is no longer the driving force in my life. :)

    This thread is for discussing a blog article, not help with tickets/PPC threats.

    There is no "appeals procedure" with Parking Eye, so you cannot have been following correct advice from here!

    You need to post your own thread in the Parking Tickets Forum for the most up to date help and advice, although you have been given excellent advice on the other thread you leeched on.
