METRIC MARTYRS SPLENDID VICTORY  - MILLIONS OF POUNDS RETURNED BY COUNCILS OVER ILLEGAL PARKING FIASCO.

As you are now no doubt aware this is one of a number of VICTORY'S they can claim. Only recently the Government has asked for councils to be sensitive to those selling in Imperial weights.  The arrogance of those tin-pot dictators in council offices across the country leaves us to believe that they forget who they are supposed to serve THE PUBLIC.

3,000,000 REFUNDED [SO FAR] FOR ILLEGAL PARKING FINES

[Daily Mail-Saturday, October 25,2008]

MOTORISTS are entitled to millions of pounds of refunds after several councils admitted handing out illegal parking tickets.

The climb-down follows an investigation of local authorities around UK which revealed the extent of

UNLAWFUL PARKING RESTRICTIONS

Now thousands of drivers who received fines as long ago as 2004 can get their money back after councils agreed to REFUND more than 3,000,000.

The decision comes after a landmark legal challenge over the use of parking tickets as a 'STEALTH TAX.

Last month 'metric martyr' Neil Herron -who led the campaign to STOP the PROSECUTION of British shopkeepers who were using imperial measurements -lodged legal papers at the HIGH COURT challenging millions of parking tickets.

Mr Herron believes that many are INVALID because the FLAWS in the REGULATIONS which cover CONTROLLED PARKING ZONES.

And because of errors in the marking of lines and the wording of signs, MANY MOTORISTS HAVE BEEN FINED UNJUSTLY, he claimed....

Any motorist who got a ticket within that zone from 2004 to September 2008 is ENTITLED TO A REBATE....

Police are investigating Leeds City Council, which is alleged to have fined motorists EVEN THOUGH IT KNEW its parking restrictions WERE NOT LEGAL -The council denies this.

Since 1999, when the [LABOUR] GOVERNMENT gave councils responsibility for handing out parking tickets -instead of the police -the number of fines has risen almost tenfold.
