|find them in Shaftesbury Ave|
This week at PATAS everyone had got over Xmas and things proceeded as normal.
What wasn't normal though was that somehow Barnet accounted for 63 of the week's 869 new Appeals which is 7% when really they should only make up 4% of the workload. I must make some enquiries as to what is going wrong as a month ago Barnet were at 2% but it has turned out to be a flash in the pan.
There were 35 Appeals heard of which 25 were won by the motorist so that was 75% which is a good win rate and worth the time to complete a simple form.
The one common theme in this week was that there were 5 cases in which Barnet Council (NSL) accepted at the last minute that the vehicle was on hire. Why do they make hire companies send in formal representations and then file a PATAS Appeal form when it is blindingly obvious that the PCN should be transferred to the person who hired the vehicle (except for bus lanes where the hire company are stuck with the PCN.)
