Just won a 'landmark victory' in Southend on Sea
« on: 04 May, 2012, 04:57:34 PM »
Hi let me introduce myself to you all. My name is Roger and I have just won a 'landmark victory' against Southend's spy cars. I live in a quiet residential road that has a 1 hour no waiting period between 2 and 3pm solely to stop commuters from parking. I was moving one car out which I parked in the road, to get another one out and was booked by a spy car for just 3 minutes. My subsequent appeal to Southend Council was turned down and I then went to the TPT. The Adjudicator ruled in my favour and made several comments about the way Southend was mis- using the cars. He said that they were going against the advice of the Secretary of State. He also stated that 3 minutes was not enough time to  to issue a pcn even had I used a defence of loading/unloading. I have won my battle but not the war. I am determined to get these awful things taken off the roads of Southend. Any help in that direction I would most gratefully receive and also any help I might be able to give to any members please contact me by PM.

Good to have you on board dodgie. We loved how you stuck it to the parking weasels.

Appealing to the council is like playing chess with a pigeon. You might be a chess grand master but the pigeon will always knock all the pieces over, shit on the board and then strut around triumphantly.

Congratulations Dodgie1 and a warm welcome to you.  :aplude:

Welcome Dodgie, I am sure you will be drinking a cup of Southend tea with a few of the members in the near future.
The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.
