  • 52M Failing to comply with a prohibition on certain types of vehicles(Motor Vehicles)

    Hi Just wondering if anyone can help me to challenge the PCN & avoid paying the penalty.*

    I have received a PCN dated 20th of January for a journey made on 12th of January location being "Browning Rd E12" at East London. The contravention is*52M Failing to comply with a prohibition on certain types of vehicles(Motor Vehicles)
    After watching movie at Ilford I drove to EastHam following the route map which has been suggested by Google maps in my mobile.Surprisingly after 8 days I have received a PCN. I have managed to check the pictures and the video. On the video I have noticed that there is a sign board stating: Except Buses, Taxis and Permit holders A1. However there was no prior displays stating the said condition. I drove as per the directions given by Google Maps.

    Could any one kindly suggest how do I avoid paying the PCN. Any reply will be highly appreciated.
    Regards

    If you are guilty of the contravention and there is photographic evidence of it how do you expect to get out of it.

            I looked at Streetview which shows the following:

            1 - a sign showing no through road except for different classes of vehicle before you got to the restriction
            2 - at the beginning of the restriction is another sign saying similar
            3 - the road itself is also marked

            If you are going to insist on your present course then I would also suggest you could be guilty of driving without due care and attention. By all means appeal but probably far better to settle at the reduced rate now - if you ignore and it goes to enforcement then you could be looking at 500+ plus the Bailiff will have the reg no of your car to make it easy to remove if necessary.
