    I'll add this to the DCB Legal discontinuations thread of shame. 

    Well done.
    Please note, we are not a legal advice forum. I personally don't get involved in critiquing court case Defences/Witness Statements, so unable to help on that front. Please don't ask. .
    I provide only my personal opinion, it is not a legal opinion, it is simply a personal one. I am not a lawyer.

    Just to update this, I got a call yesterday morning from the solicitors of the parking company saying that their client wanted to discontinue on a no prejudice basis, with each side covering their own costs, if I accepted by 3.30pm so that it could be filed with the court.

    I responded...

    They then sent the email to me and the court containing the N279 and stating that payment of the agreed costs will be made...

    Thanks everyone for the help


    You won!

    See you back here for the final DLUHC Public Consultation, coming soon.  Please read about it and be ready.  UK motorists need people like you to help us make a difference forever.

    What a waste of your time this was, and why should there be such a threatening litigation culture in parking?  Join us in trying to end the conniving PPC and DRA 'added fees' fuelling the court culture. There will be one window of opportunity very soon.

    Together, we can stop the rotten parking industry from riding roughshod over the new statutory Code and the charge level caps intended last year, but blocked by the greedy moneymen.

    If you are not likely to pop back here every week to check, please set up email alerts for this forum and bookmark this thread (below) as we intend that one of us posts on it when the Government opens the Consultation:

    Read only the latest (2022) posts there. The PPCs have blocked the new Code by filing for Judicial Reviews.

    Stopped the much welcomed parking code from February 2022, which stated that added £60 or £70 false 'DRA fee' extortion was to be banned and that parking levels would start at £50.  It's all on hold...

    Motorists urgently need the statutory Code reinstated and the ban on false 'DRA fees' confirmed, to stop the rot and the toxic litigation culture.

    This will be your chance to make a difference, plus other drivers you know (family, friends) who are also fed up with greedy and unscrupulous parking firms and the stranglehold they and their 'legals' have on people.

    We need VERY high numbers of real victims to make a point of responding to this final Consultation.

    Coming very soon....and it will be all over the forum for several weeks.

    PRIVATE 'PCN'? DON'T PAY BUT DON'T IGNORE IT (except N.Ireland).
