Hi, I received a fixed penalty notice yesterday under their description of littering. I tried to pay the fine to avoid the hassle of having to pay more if not paid in a certain amount of days. The FPN hadn't been updated on newham councils records yet. Which is when I noticed the mistake the enforcement officer had put on the paperwork. Although he told me I committed a CN1 offence at the time and put down the CN1 fine of £80 on the ticket he actually wrote down on the ticket I committed a CN7 offence which carried a £110 fine. Clutching at straws here but seems as the officer put down the wrong fine for the wrong offence is their any chance this will void the penalty notice?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

    Possibly, it's only a penalty at the moment (it's not a fine) so you can only try and appeal. If you wish you can opt for this to be tried in court.

  • Trouble is they could also say that the 7 is a 1 some peoples handwriting, can be awful, you dont know the difference between the 7 and 1.
  • Gaylenne, it's a 7 with the - going through it. So certainly a 7

    Yes, it annoys me to see people writing a '7' with a 'bar'. The continentals do this to differentiate it from a '1' which they insist on writing with a diagonal line from the top of the '1' downwards. Why can't they write a British '1', which is a single downward stroke? :mad:

    Maybe because the way you describe how to write 1 i.e. like '|' maybe confused ith 'I'.

    Note how even in this typeface, a '1' has the diagonal line on the top too. ;)

    I'm not sure why you are so annoyed by 'the continentals' who are actually make this so less confusing :huh:

    Hi Martinmc88 - we're not covering quesitons about FPNs on the CAB board at the moment. We'd recommend contacting your local bureau for detailed advice on this and also on the appeals process.
