Parking fine – Fine

Dear Slough Borough Council,
Thank you for your correspondence detailing that you will not be taking your unjust parking fine forward. As your correspondence failed to detail why you have chosen not to proceed with this fine I can only take it that my assumptions about the penalty in this instance being completely unfair were correct. As such I feel in only fair that you reimburse me for the cost you have burdened me with in dealing with your unjust attempts and threats to extort money from me. My account of events has not changed since the day I originally contacted your company and yet you felt it necessary to threaten me with legal action and doubling your already over inflated fine. Below is a list of the costs involved in making your company understand that your fine was unjust.
  • 2 x telephone calls (to nameless person who can’t do anything to help – you really should update your documentation to clearly outline this as it would save people a lot of money)£5,00
  • 3 x letters (all stating exactly the same thing. the only difference being that the last one had pictures proving that your photographic proof was basically added from a completely separate part of the street in an attempt to validate your extortion)£1 (rounded down and didn’t include the cost of printing or paper)
  • 3 hours of my time (restating the exact some thing again and again to the nameless person who kept writing me letters threatening to take me to court)£150 (£50/hour and this doesn’t include the stress caused)

Total £156

I think it only fair that if you pay this invoice within the next 30 days that I halve the amount. So if paid prior to the 23rd February 2012 the charge is only £78. Failure to pay the fine will result in a claim through the smalls claim system including all the evidence you have supplied (You seem to have forgotten to send any of the requested documentation, clearly you do not have to comply with freedom of information acts or even attempting to give people the full details of why you are trying to fine)

Kind Regards
XXX
