post the video not stills from it

The date for payment quoted on the PCN is wrong and that alone can be a winner

+1 The PCN is unenforceable.
There are known knowns which, had we known, we would never have wished to know. It is known that this also applies to the known unknowns. However, when one attends a hearing, Mr Rumsfeld's idea that there are also unknown unknowns fails to apply because, anyone who is in the know, knows that unknown unknowns are purely a deception otherwise known as an aleatory experience or also known as a lottery. I know that I know this to be a fact and, in this knowledge, I know that I am fully prepared to present my case but, paradoxically, in full knowledge that the unknown unknowns may well apply in view of some adjudicators' lack of knowing what they ought to know.

I've watched the video.  I assume you are the car turning left out of the box? If so the video does not give any evidence of a contravention.  It's only a contravention to stop in a box junction due to stationary vehicles. The video offers no evidence as to the reason for your stop.  It may well have been for pedestrians crossing the road.

That is correct. I've uploaded the video to the link above this comment. Let me know if it doesn't work for anybody with a recommendation of a different upload link.

Thanks guys

Here's the video:

Well it's not a contravention to being with, and the PCN wording is hopelessly flawed. Just send this:

Dear City of Westminster,

I challenge liability for PCN WE50529041 for the following reasons:

1) The video footage does not show any contravention, as the video does not show any stationary vehicles beyond the box markings,
2) The penalty charge notice is hopelessly flawed as the statutory periods are wrong
3) Based on the above, it would be wholly unreasonable for the council to reject this representation.

Should the council reject this representation, I will be pursuing a costs application at the tribunal.

Yours faithfully,

Don't forget to keep a screenshot of the confirmation page.

Do not rely on the post, keep checking the amount due on the council website and let us know when the amount due goes up or down.
I am not on the "motorists's side", nor am I on the "police/CPS/council's" side, I am simply in favour of the rule of law. Section 6 of the Interpretation Act 1978 applies to everything I post as it would apply to an Act of Parliament. I am a Conservative councillor, this means some people think I am "scum". I am not a lawyer.

Wow! A psychological template re how to respond to a bully!  The problem is:  these people dealing with such are totally incompetent and actually believe they are right!

The restriction that I am supposed to have ignored was not signed

would this be the correct selection?

Can anyone recommend which option to select in the above options? I feel as if none apply to the appeal..

No idea as it is rubbish.  Why not make a pdf and attach it?

The payment period in the PCN is:
The penalty charge mist be paid within the period of 28 days beginning with the date on which the penalty charge notice is served. You must either:

'Pay the penalty charge before the end of the period of 28 days beginning with the date of the notice...



The Act says:
iii)that the penalty charge must be paid before the end of the period of 28 days beginning with the date of the notice;

So, the PCN does state what's required. It also gives a form which is not correct. So, OP let's be clear. The statutory periods are wrong is as wrong as the error being described. It's too far reaching. You need to be more focused IMO.

The PCN gives 2 payment periods, one (the first) beginning on the date of service and the second 'beginning on the date of the notice'.

Self-evidently there can only be one, and given that the practical effect of the difference is a minimum of two days and a possible maximum of 4 days means that the PCN fails to meet the standard required by the Act.

They're all nonsense, just pick one at random. We'll have to go to the tribunal anyway so it hardly matters.
