Sexy at 71 super mod..
as she said she paid so no possibility of a larger fine and its done and dusted i have some pictures some whereThat's to do with lack of common sense Ron.
Did she pay the fixed penalty fine?
If it had been me I would have accepted the court summons and taken some photos along as evidence.
Usually the DVLA prosecutor would have a word with the attendee's ( not everyone turns up) and would ask the court to drop the prosecution after seeing the evidence as most Magistrates have enough common sence to see what's right.
The caveat to that is in the word 'most'. Not allowed to say any more than that.:smile2:
In a nutshell, that is why many people simply pay.as she said she paid so no possibility of a larger fine ...........
Lived next door to family where the father and son both drove untaxed cars..the father bought a BMW 3 series..had the log book complete not just the green slip he then didnt tax it cos his name was not passed onto the DVLA by the seller..the son did the same..well if daddy can do it why not the son ..:crazy: I will add that this is when the tax disc had to be displayed but it didnt put that lot off..:steam:local boy here buys cars that are just about ready for scrappy and drives them about no tax ...never seems to get caught as he now has 3 parked on the street just now
In my area the police or DVLA no longer chase parked cars with no VED. A local private company with a camera van carry out patrols. A few of my neighbours have been caught out. It may be similar in your area but as the cars are parked in a cul-de-sac then there are unlikely to be spotted by a passing camera van. If there is a similar arrangement in your area you now know who to contact.:wink2:same here we have on our dead end road 9 YES NINE! cars owned by same family (they live on different road) dumped and parked here 3 are untaxed and uninsured and 1 long time parked (a camper van) other 5 are legal - council knows since may 2016, same as police and dvla - all refuse to do anything!
Thats the thing to do but you cant get it into the head of our government..they are blind to the fact.. :crazy:just do what the French did a few years back, binned Road Tax altogether and put the price of fuel up, the more you used the road, the more fuel you used, the more tax you paid, even foreigners pay road tax in France, if they buy fuel that is
the government are scared just think of all the 1000's of workers they would have to lay offjust do what the French did a few years back, binned Road Tax altogether and put the price of fuel up, the more you used the road, the more fuel you used, the more tax you paid, even foreigners pay road tax in France, if they buy fuel that is
