  • Congestion charge fines London 10 months after the fact..

    Hi there! Yesterday I received 4 fines for driving through congestion charge zones in London (3 fines on one day in Januari '22 and one in februari '22) totalling 400 euros when paid within 14 days. I am willing to pay this, if this was all. Problem is, since januari I came to the UK for business multiple time, so I am a bit worried that a lot more will come. I found out that a PCN should be issued within 28 days after the offense. But I don't know if that also applies to a foreigner like me, living in The Netherlands. Im a law abiding citizen and of course willing to pay if I have done something wrong. But getting a fine should work like a feedback loop; however 10 months after the fact did not give me a chance to improve my "behavior". Any ideas what could be done about this and does anyone know if the 28 day limit applies to me as a Dutchie? Thanks in advance! Mart

      The 28 daytime limit for issuing PCNs applies AFAIK to all cases.
      The fact you live abroad gives them problems collecting it anyway!

      You might be better seeking advice on the Pepipoo forum ( http://www.pepipoo.com/ ) as they are the respected experts on council charges
