The incidence of resource to the TEC using the form TE9 was much reduced in this week with only 11 cases. That left 26 which the council won and 51 which the motorist won and of those 51 the council didn't bother to contest 18 of them, hence the picture of the towel above; it should really be a thrown one though. So of the true PCN, a 66% success rate. Keep those appeals coming.
Case of note which the motorist won include:
One where payment was made 1 minute after the PCN was issued as it must take at least a minute to do and show up.
One where the entire car was not more than 50cm from the kerb.
One where the notes of the CEO supported the defence that boarding was taking place. Why did that case get as far as PATAS?
One in Prince of Wales Close where the sign is turned away from the road. If you can't see it, it isn't valid.
One where the loading flashes (those marks across the kerb) were not clear.
In Varley Parade - the poor surface markings are not good enough for a PCN to stand.
If you have a PCN in similar circumstances, appeal it.
