Motor Cycle Monthly Article

Please note: ACTUALLY THIS IS NOT ACCURATE, ....WHAT IS IT WITH THE BUSH THING MIKE?!!!  :bashy: :bashy:
"But we film the CCTV cars getting up to all sorts of tricks themselves, like parking on double yellow lines, ignoring one-way signs and hiding behind trees and bushes to try and catch motorists out,” explained a  W:T:F: "Every time we go out on the roads we get cheered by people like we are Robin Hood-style enforcers looking after the poor against the rich and powerful.  :bashy: WE ARE NOT AGAINST PARKING ENFORCEMENT, we are not robin hoods!


NOT SAID BY US EITHER  I had a boy of 12 come up and give me his £2 pocket money because his mum and dad told him what a good job we were doing.”  :o
 
 The parents were with him, It wasnt his pocket money, he said his parent's had given the £2,00 to him to give to us. I wouldnt take a kids pocket money!! Come on!   ::)

“The support we are getting from the public is just phenomenal and mushrooming all the time. We are making a stand against the way councils are increasingly trying to rip-off the poor motorist. We stay strictly within the law and never chase, follow or harass the council’s CCTV cars sent out to nab motorists".

MG, The Press never report things with complete accuracy. You can comment under the MCM Article.

I have read posts by Shunters that they follow the camera car, until they jump lights.

Yes your right Dipstick, but we do advise all $chunters to use the word "assist", as thats what we do  ;D

[align=center:1ngm1n1o]Statement of Intent[/align:1ngm1n1o]

I am not following the people in the car, I am following the car.  If the people currently in it get out and others replace them, I will continue to follow the car.  I have absolutely no interest in the operators of the CCTV cameras mounted on the car other than to volunteer my time, free of charge, to assist the operators of the cctv cars in their duties of ensuring public safety by way of deterring motorists from committing motoring offences.

I respectfully refer the reader of this statement to the:

Traffic Management Act 2004 and The Secretary of State’s Statutory Guidance to Local Authorities on the Civil Enforcement of Parking Contraventions dated 28 February 2008

Which states:

"Enforcement authorities should run their CPE [Civil Parking Enforcement] operations (both on and off street) efficiently, effectively and economically. The purpose of penalty charges is to dissuade motorists from breaking parking restrictions. The objective of CPE should be for 100% compliance, with no penalty charges."

I am following this vehicle out of deference to the Secretary of State's guidance above, and out of civic duty.

I am not trying to stop the CCTV operators from doing their job. In fact, I am encouraging them to do so.
