I'll prove parking fines are illegal...Report of the Worcester Hearing

I'll prove parking fines are all illegal

A MIDLAND pensioner was today attempting to prove that all parking fines are illegal.

Robin de Crittenden, of Willenhall, near Wolverhampton, was facing a hearing of the National Parking Adjudication Service after refusing to pay the £30 ticket he received for parking too long in a restricted space in Worcester.

Mr de Crittenden, aged 67, has vowed to go to prison, rather than pay up.
Now he claims parking fines are unconstitutional, and breach our historic rights.

At today's hearing in Worcester he was set to be the first to use the defence of the 1689 Bill of Rights, which he claims states that fines may only be imposed by a conviction from a court of law - not just issued by councils. Mr de Crittenden, a former private consultant, said: "The case has the potential to prove all parking fines illegal and void and could have major repercussions.
"The purpose of this challenge is to put the politicians back in their kennels by requiring them to obey the law that regulates Parliament itself."

Mark Wallace, manager of the Freedom Association Campaign, which is backing Mr de Crittenden's fight, said: "There are fundamental historic rights guaranteed to the people and this case will attempt to re-assert those freedom promised under the Bill of Rights.

"Fining people without the due process required is simply illegal. This case could put a stop to the huge quantities of money that councils take in fines every year."

Glad he did not lie down and pay,as many others would have.The parking ticket is uncontstitutinal on many fronts, as I to am contesting 3tickets
on the same grounds.For example,if you appeal your slapped whith another £30 if the appeal fails.
This is clearly not right.
