Normal service was more or less resumed in this fortnight with 63 Barnet Appeals to PATAS out of 1876 London wide which is 3.4% (the norm is 4%).
Of the Appeals heard there were 53 in the fortnight and 36 of them were won which is 68% for the motorist so the council seem to be struggling to achieve their aim of always winning and are short even of 50% which is the usual across the board success rate.
Winning motorists included the following cases:
Someone was alighting on crutches which takes time.
A vehicle was taken without consent.
8 cases were not contested by the council (which we haven't seen in bulk for a while)
Someone was unloading to their new home (max 20 minutes probably).
A suspension sign was placed too low.
No evidence that the vehicle had been driven away.
"High Rd N20" was not adequate description for a postal PCN.
In Ridge Rd the bay sign was missing.
A traffic warden managed to see an invalid permit but no the valid one in the same windscreen.
More Appeals to PATAS please.
