I have a PCN for being in a bus lane code 34j, I was in a Queue

Customer Question

I have a PCN for being in a bus lane code 34j, I was in a Queue for a mile until I moved into the bus lane because the traffic was not moving, to take a Left turn to another road, the distance i traveled was about 30meters to the Left filter on the road. No traffic was in the bus lane it was completely empty for over half a mile and moor, as soon as I got to the filter I took the left tern away. I Believed I was using good judgement in not adding to the congestion. My appeal has been rejected by the Merton council and I have been asked to pay the full £130.00, before the second appeal to the Independent Adjudicator. I feel our system is going down the road of judgement by video surveillance, where common sense should prevail.Should I have to pay this full amount? Can I further Appeal to the Adjudicator? and should i continue my appeal?

Hi

Thank you for your question and welcome to Just Answer. I will try to help with this. Please RATE my answer OK SERVICE or above.

Why was your appeal rejected?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

It was rejected or unsuccessful because they say none of the statutory grounds for appeal have been satisfied with no compelling mitigation for them to cancel PCN. But they say if I am unhappy with there decision I must wait for a Enforcement notice before making further representations. This i have received but it asked me to pay the full amount of £130.00 only,not the £65.00 discounted amount, and given me another representation form.
