    Today I received a phone call off my boss
    He said had I parked in a pub car park?
    Me, no not me :rolleyes:
    Turns out it was me :p:p:p
    I had gone to pick up my sons motorbike after he had got a puncture.
    I drove in chucked the bike on the back( 2 stroke scrambler) of the truck And drove off, 7 minutes it said on the fine.
    £100 or £60 if paid straight away :eek:
    Can I appeal it? even though my boss has said he will pay and will not let me pay.:)
    What a boss:D

    They try to get you on contact law. What is the reason for the fine?
    Oh and unless it's a dead cert that you'd win then my advice would be to cut your losses and pay the reduced amount as they're dodgy robbing [email protected] who try every trick in the book. They chased me for 3 years and £60 soon became over £500 after loading it with fake charges. I went to court and won as the beak tore them apart, but they play the law of averages as most people pay up when they receive financial threats of how much these unregulated cowboys will jack the price up.

    We got stung with the ANPR system at the gym (back in the days when you could go :()
    I tried to argue that we were only 11 minutes over and gave some waffle about not everyone can use the phone smart app etc. and won! ...however next time it happened they weren’t having any of it, I paid the £60 :mad::(

    Another time I tried and tried to battle TfL over a box junction fine but they’ve heard it all before and as Muffking says they know ALL the loopholes, better to just swallow it and move on :(
