    Fine after 30seconds 30th May 17 at 10:53 AM
    Dear Members
    Sorry if this has been answered before.

    I drove down a public road which PCM Ltd operate.
    Type in google maps joseph ray road e11.

    I drove down the road stopped with my car running got out to read the sign which says no parking. I then turned around to see someone taking a photo of my car.

    I told them i am not parking and now moving and drove off. All this happening in a space of 30seconds which are also shown on the images on the PCM website.

    When i received the fine i stupidly appealed saying I had to pull over as i was unwell to take something out of my boot and the car was running. Still also in the 30 second time frame.

    My appeal was rejected what can i do now?
    thanks for the help

    i checked the first parking invoice was for the registered keeper...not I

    so i cant counterclaim?

    could i not counterclaim for distress and time for making my defence and bylaws?

    i dont want to go to out o my depth - but i can handle the work :-)

    You could try, using the Protection from Harassment Act instead.

    Do you think it's worth a 25 punt up front, and another 25 at hearing stage? Maybe, but it's untested.

    If you are up for it, but you would have to re-write the entire counter claim as almost none of it would make sense, and you couldn't use Vidal Hall or Halliday, you could however use Ferguson v British Gas!

    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.

    Hi all,

    I filed my defense 48 hours ago and this morning I have recieved from Gladstones via email their directions questionaire completed. Im guessin this is a scare tactic?

    Another templeted message from them said :

    We act for the Claimant and have notified the Court of our Client!!!8217;s intention to proceed with the claim.

    Please find attached a copy of our Client!!!8217;s completed Directions Questionnaire, which will be filed with the court upon their request. You will note we intend to request a special direction that the case be dealt with on the papers and without the need for an oral hearing

    This request is sought simply because the matter is in our Client!!!8217;s opinion relatively straightforward and the costs incurred by both parties for attending an oral hearing would be disproportionate.

    You will note our Client has elected not to mediate. Its decision is not meant to be in any way obstructive and is based purely on experience, as mediation has rarely proven beneficial in these types of cases. Notwithstanding this, our Client would be happy to listen to any genuine payment proposals that you wish to put forward.


    Yours sincerely


    Do i now wait for my question to fill in?

    I have read that to make sure this is not read on papers :-)

    How to deal with the DQ stage is covered in the NEWBIES FAQ sticky, post #2.
    We cannot provide you with a silver bullet to get you out of this. You have to be in for the long run, and need to involve yourself in research and work for you to get rid of this. It is not simple. We will help, but can't do it for you.

    Maybe not the problem but it is certainly cured/eased when people do turn off Smart Punctuation. If you know the fix, could you post it on the Site Feedback sub-forum because it has been going on for quite a while now and the "technical people" don't seem either able or bothered to fix it.

    Just a thought, as I've had one land on my desk today for this very location, although it is not at court claim status.

    Looking at Streetview, I've seen these signs, side by side - https://goo.gl/maps/M1bTVeVdkzJ2

    On the acknowledgement of service, or defence form, is there a section that says something like it is in the wrong court system? If this is a breach of bye-law, it should be the Magistrates, not civil, and POFA doesn't apply?

    Sorry if this has ben covered - I'm just skim reading whilst drafting a "FRO" letter in reply at the moment....

    Since they've gone from Graham Park Way, this seems to be their new wheeze. It will all unfold or unravel eventually.
    Idiots please note: If you intend NOT to read the information on the Notice of Allocation and hand a simple win to the knuckle dragging ex-clampers, then don't waste people's time with questions on a claim you'll not defend.

    You can dispute jurisdiction , but I believe you will then have to file a proper application and pay the fee
