    Had a letter addressed to me this morning which is most unusual as i never get mail.So all excited i opened it to find Waltham Forest council had taken some pictures of my van at 07.48 last Friday and have charged me £65 for them.I was sat in the van the whole time waiting for my friend who was getting a coffee. Oh well lets hope they spend it on something good like getting rid of some of their obvious immigration problems, or even cleaning the dirty hole up a bit.I think not though.Sorry nearly forgot the bacon rolls we bought out of the cafe there,they were crap.

    You should have been in a Transit Pickup pulling a caravan,then you could sent for a few dozen of your mates and set up a campsite and nobody would have bothered their arse:winky:

    Cheap...

    I know someone who took up Biggles' offer of free bacon butty and cost him thousands in a new motorhome, a lucky escape I would say...

    It was a fixed camera up on the lamppost,It was a loading bay.Waltham forest tried to get money out of me once before for poll tax even though i hadnt lived in the borough for the 2 years they tried to extract from me.We informed them of the date we left the dirty hole.

    You should have used Wadham Road Cafe hehehehehe

    Am getting worried about you - we got one today too from Waltham Forest council. Our sons friends had their mobiles stolen. We stopped to ask some people near where the incident occurred and were also caught on camera.

    I am now waiting for another 4 tickets to arrive as we stopped in the same road 4 times asking passersby

    If we get all 4 tickets we might as well have just bought his friends new phones.

    Glad you paid it well within the 14 days coz if it doesnt clear on time they charge double whether you paid or not.

    As for you getting a ticket I would have done your bacon rolls xxxxxx I make a mean bacon sarnie xxxxx

    Don't think he was parked just waiting in a loading bay, presumably not holding up traffic or anything.

    Parked, waiting, no difference in law whether we like it or not. On street loading bay or off street? Again no difference, if there is a TRO breached then the ticket will be issued.

    That's my point who invented these stupid laws, no logic to them, he was hurting no one and helping a local shop

    Elaine got one parked in Sainsbury Wakefield issued by a company called parking eye we just ignored it sent a couple of very official looking demands and a nice picy of car in parking bay after about 4 letters it went away
    Never even replied to them
    Some of these apparently are not legally enforceable
    I love google sometimes it's even correct

    Now over to the experts

    I suppose i could have ingnored the letter but things like this always come back to bite me on the botty rarse. Just wanted to put it to bed and really.I know i was in the wrong place but i was obstructing no one nor anything.Its just that council have jumped on everything they can to get money out of people.I would imagine to pay for all the people that sponge of the state in the borough and pay no council taxes.It cost me £165 for5 weeks in skip permits of which i have to pass the costs onto my customers who already pay extortionate rates. Bloody Highwaymen thats what they are.

    Oops I didn't meet ignore it just check its official if it is pay it
    If not check around on who issued then make up your mind what to do
    I googled the company and lots had ignored it lots of threading legal looking letters and just ignored them

    Sorry for not explaining better

    I live in Waltham forest and they are merciless.. they use the cctv cameras on posts that were intended to fight /prevent crime to just make cash.. then there is their fleet of cctv smart cars parking illegally trying to catch people out... is pretty awful.. sums up London I suppose..
    anyone who hates those smart car cctv cameras will smile at this tho.
