MOBILE SPEED CAMERAS AND ILLEGALLY PARKED OPERATORS – 28/05/2019
This case came to my attention recently and it strikes a chord with me as I cover this precise scenario in my book.
Interestingly for me, my first blog in April 2016 was about something similar and you can read it here
The background to this story is that a Council speed trap officer was illegally parked on double yellow lines and was confronted by an angry pedestrian. You can read it here
The Road Traffic Act cuts both ways and you can easily contest a speeding ticket based on the fact that the operator was illegally parked and was actually breaking the traffic laws he was trying to enforce.
The persecution of drivers is never-ending with fuel prices, taxation, insurance rip-offs, road closures, potholes, Councils disputing legitimate claims, obscured signs on bus lanes and everything else under the guise of environmental policies. This is completely unacceptable.
I cover pothole claims, speeding tickets, parking tickets, obscured signs and much more in my book complete with templates based on real-life test cases that work now on sale via Amazon as an e-book and paperback priced £2.99 / £7.99.
BBC Radio Scotland have read it and interviewed me as a consumer expert for a five-part consumer programme they have made. Read a free sample via my website and let me know what you think?
