Yes they are issued by the local council
I have had a bailiff call for one and lots of threats for the others.
The alleged offences happened over 6 months ago - I tried appealing but really haven't got the time.
Although I have the funds to pay I am refusing on principal.
Two of the tickets were created when the vehicle was left in a private car park and moved by the carpark operatives.
One was from a camera and we didn't receive the first or second demand.
And the most recent is for unloading and the traffic warden didn't believe I was, so gave me a ticket anyway despite boot full of tools and unloading them in front of him and a sign clearly stating Unloading 40 mins max of which I was 20 minutes.
Really not happy and will happily pay to fight..
I work 7 days a week - I tried to appeal but they don't make it easy - I have received correspondence back from the councils but each time they refused my appeal despite being genuine points they failed to recognise them.
One example in a Birmingham city council carpark I paid the ticket machine it didn't give a ticket the machine was broken - I then tried with their Ringgo service which didn't recognise my voice and also failed - after 20 mins of trying I gave up as I had a meeting to attend.
The point being I paid the ticket machine - and I was standing next to their CCTV camera when doing so. They failed to believe I paid. - Guilty until proved otherwise..
So would you advise I roll over and pay the unjust fines?
Thats the answer then - Sell the 70K car give up the £100K job, fold the company and spend valuable time with the family.
Next stop - man of straw
