Talk about Hoist by their own Patard!
I read recently how to deal with a Parking Notice:
“A 2 sentence letter to the Council has worked for me. Just state that per the DVLA registration document you are merely the keeper of the vehicle and if they wish to pursue the matter they will need to reissue the documents to the owner.”
How amazing! THEY are the ones who took our ownerships away from our vehicles, as we are now only registered keepers. So who are the owners? The DVLA? Or who? So we can now use this AGAINST them!
On the Penalty Notice it states:
“If the penalty charge is not paid on or before the end of the 28-day period as specified on the front of this notice or successfully challenged, the Council may serve a Notice to Owner (NtO) on the owner of the vehicle requiring payment of the penalty charges.”
So let me get this straight. If I don’t pay they will send a Notice to the owner (be that DVLA or whoever, it certainly isn’t me as they tell me it isn’t on the V5 registration document!) requiring them to pay? OK I will take that option, thank you very much!
Also DO NOT complete, sign and return the Council’s dispute form. This is a trap!! This will form a contract and consent that you agree to the charge.
I will update this post with any replies, etc.
