A quiet week for new Appeals being lodged with only 18 out of 906 being from Barnet. So only 2% against the norm of 4% and a quiet week for PATAS overall with fewer than 1000 new cases. The dip from Barnet is due to the changeover to new software. There will be a surge once they crank it up to full speed.
There were 48 allowed Appeals and 12 refused so that is a 80% success rate for the motorist (there were also 2 witness statement cases which I tend not to count).
Reasons for successful appeals this week were:
- The police pushed the car onto the pavement.
- Barnet Council / NSL did not reply to PATAS.
- Vehicle broken down and there was an AA report.
- The PCN had been paid within 14 days (should never have got this far)
- The council's Evidence Pack was late (NSL produce them)
- The motorist did not prevent service (which requires the use of force)
- Redundant worn out disabled bays at Hadley Highstone which are scheduled for proper removal.
- Had paid for parking.
- A Solicitor with impeccable records had not received the Notice of Rejection.
- A 14 May 2012 PCN (it should have been written off)
So a good week, if a little quiet, but that will soon change.
Keep those appeals going in.
