If he keeps this stunt going I suspect he'll end up going for a walk on Harrowdown Hill.

He may well add that to his (already) eclectic repertoire as a violinist.  :)
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 through no fault of their own.

**************

At least a decade ago, my dearly-departed fellow campaigner, Nigel Wise,  succeeded in Lord True reimbursing quite a lot of money to motorists concerning the spy car camera nonsense.  Richmond also appointed a new Parking Manager, Stephen Hardy, whom I know personally and professionally. He always communicated with me regarding the contents of his paperwork!  He was a model manager - unlike the person currently occupying the same position in Kingston, whose resignation is long overdue.

PLEASE BOTH COUNCIL LEADERS:  REIMBURSE ALL RECIPIENTS BEFORE YOU ACQUIRED PROPER CERTIFICATION.

***********

Dear Sir or Madam

You must reimburse all motorists before you acquired the new VCA certificate.  This is unjust enrichment.

Yours faithfully

Tommy's Second Sequel v Kingston. Interview with Mr Sledge: https://youtu.be/Izq6v54bEwk


Mr Sledge raised several important issues in his challenge and formal representations against the Bus Lane ticket.  The Parking Operations Manager, Mrs Anita Haycock-Roelefeld, firstly rejected all the arguments about the signage and the wording on the ticket.  She then changed her mind completely.  Perhaps she will now consider her position and so should Mr Ian Manders who is allegedly in charge of this fiasco.  Or simply reimburse all recipients of the illegally-worded Penalty Charge Notice concerning the timing periods.

Well done Mr Sledge for persevering and granting me an interview.

After our interview, I shouted at several motorcyclists who also went down the bus lane at Eden Street.  They simply did not care because they knew that the camera did not point at their vehicle registration mark.  And so, this demonstrates even more prejudicial and unfair conduct from this council.  Only buses, cycles and taxis are allowed!

*****************************

Informal representations which were rejected:

Dear Sirs

Ref: PCN.........................VRM........................

Ground: The Penalty Charge Notice is non-compliant

The PCN completely mis-states the two periods of payments regarding the 14 days and 28 days. Therefore, the PCN should be cancelled as it is substantially non-compliant and does not contain the mandatory information it must according to the legislation.

The relevant part of the legislation is here:
https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukla/1...

The following information is mandatory:

(3)A penalty charge notice under this Part of this Act must state—

©that the penalty charge must be paid before the end of the period of 28 days beginning with the date of the notice;

(d)that if the penalty charge is paid before the end of the period of 14 days beginning with the date of the notice, the amount of the penalty charge will be reduced by the specified proportion;


Should you not agree to do so, I am fully prepared to pursue this fundamental matter as far as the Tribunal to seek adjudication on the issue.


Ground: signage is not fit for purpose

According to your own video evidence the road legend on turning from Union Street is illegible and this indicates a statutory failure to maintain it thus rendering it not fit for purpose in terms of conveying the Traffic Management Order. Furthermore, the ramping also obscures the signage until it is too late.

Also, some of the warning signage on Union Street is so twisted as also not to be fit for purpose.

Finally, the video does not show all the signage allegedly passed.

Please cancel the PCN accordingly.

Yours faithfully

Mr Sledge and the sign:

https://youtu.be/rWgKAx0Jju4

Further interview with Mr Sledge: Mr Sledge and the sign

Fact no. 1:

The upright sign had been twisted on the date of the alleged contravention so as to be not fit for purpose.

Fact no. 2:

The sign at the junction stating a No Left turn was not even there last year for some considerable amount of time. They replaced it upon my complaint. As Mr Sledge says, as well as the wording issues of the tickets, how many people received them and paid up when these signs were in the state they were - or not there at all?

This demonstrates another clear failure to maintain signage as is required by law.

The Local Authorities’ Traffic Orders (Procedure) (England and Wales) Regulations 1996 states this:

Traffic signs

18.—(1) Where an order relating to any road has been made, the order making authority shall take such steps as are necessary to secure— (a)before the order comes into force, the placing on or near the road of such traffic signs in such positions as the order making authority may consider requisite for securing that adequate information as to the effect of the order is made available to persons using the road;

(b)the maintenance of such signs for so long as the order remains in force; and

©in a case where the order revokes, amends or alters the application of a previous order, the removal or replacement of existing traffic signs as the authority considers requisite to avoid confusion to road users by signs being left in the wrong positions.
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 through no fault of their own.
