Can I dispute the penalty?
There was a sign that was so close to the wall as to be almost invisible and no road markings. I have just looked on Google Street View and all these areas now appear to be marked as Loading Only areas.
Can you give me links to the relevant regulations please?
I thought that as you state that both road signs and road markings must be visible that it would be appropriate to refer to the relevant legislation.
As I didn't pay the reduced fine in time, the Notice to Owner was sent to my father, to whom the car is registered. I assume that I am still liable as the driver? My father is deceased.
But he is dead!!
He is. I forgot to get it changed.
What do you mean?
His estate was divided between the family.
What would happen if I changed the registered keeper to me? Would they then pursue me?
So what happens if the registered keeper is left as my dead father?
The car is still registered to my dead father
