PATAS adjudicators also need a break from parking tickets so do not sit over the Easter holidays. Thus the numbers were down a little:
|New Appeals||21||751||3||Below normal|
|Cases heard||14||25||56||Slightly high|
There were four cases of note:
1 A man made a minor keying error with his registration and as he hadn't done so before the adjudicator decided to recommend to Barnet for this first offence, that is bound to happen at times, that they cancel the PCN. The adjudicator can only suggest, they cannot order where the rules have been broken. Barnet decided to agree.
2 There were two cases of PCN sent through the post where the adjudicator wasn't convinced that the traffic warden had begun to prepare a PCN so they were cancelled.
3 The old question of time to collect a visitor voucher came up again. Reasonable time must be allowed. the PCN was cancelled.
4 The council still seem to struggle when it comes to the Event Day zone. Another PCN bit the dust.
Keep making those Appeals to PATAS.
