A slightly busier week at PATAS with 1,019 new Appeals being logged for the whole of London. Barnet accounted for 63 of them which is 6% and a lot more than the 4% they ought to be.
70 Barnet cases were decided and 45 of them, some 64%, went the way of the motorist.
There were four cases worth a mention.
1. A vehicle parked more than 50cm from the kerb was delivering and evidently couldn't reasonably have done the delivery any other way which led to the PCN being cancelled. When parking do make sure that you are fairly close to the kerb.
2. The PayByPhone system hung up on a caller and their PCN was cancelled. The outcome of this sort of Appeal is very hard to predict.
3. A motorist who helped their children in to school with their heavy bags had their PCN cancelled. The time spent doing this must be commensurately short.
4. Pavement parking was found to be vaguely marked in Barnfield Rd and the PCN was cancelled.
Keep those Appeals coming.
