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.
