Rights to fight parking ticket

Rights to fight parking ticket
The Times
November 19, 2005

A pensioner aims to use the 1689 Bill of Rights to overturn a parking ticket. Robin de Crittenden, 67, from Willenhall, Wolverhampton, is fighting a £60 fine issued by Worcester City Council and has taken his case to the National Parking Adjudication Service. He believes that fines issued before conviction by a court are illegal under the Bill of Rights. The NPAS adjudicator reserved judgment on the case and is expected to notify the parties of his findings this month.

Robin de Crittenden is right on the money.

Article 12 of the Bill of Rights Act, 1689 makes any attempt to impose a fine or forfeiture before conviction be a Court of Law illegal and void.

Article 9 of the same Act confers the power of Parliamentary Privilege on which parliamentarians rely every day on which they sit in the debating chambers.

What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.

NPAS is not a Court of Law (even though Magistrates and/or Judges may sit thereon) but a tribunal. This being the case it acts illegally if it attempts to impose any fine or forfeiture.

Let us not forget that the whole of parliamentary power comes from (so must defer to) the Bill of Rights Act, 1689.

One is innocent until proven guilty by a Court of Law. One must therefore always have the option of being heard before a Court and not be judged by some pettifogging bureaucrat.
