PATAS - w/c 29 Sept 14 - The great escape

In this week at PATAS there were 1053 new Appeals registered London wide and of those 57 were from Barnet which was 5% and higher than they should be.

38 Barnet Appeals were heard of which 24 were successful which is 63%

There were 4 notable cases.

In one the fact that the motorist had £7 in change available was sufficient to cancel the PCN, the adjudicator not realising that you could have a cash wagon with you but only a phone and a credit or debit card will do.

In another case the absence of proof of bus lane signs was enough to cancel the PCN.

In a third case the council did not respond to enquiries made by PATAS.

These were three great escapes.

The motorist who relied on a passing policeman saying it was OK to park on a Bank Holiday was wrongly advised and lost their Appeal.

Keep those Appeals coming as they seem to be tailing off.

Yours appealingly

Miss Feezance
