I’m a young adult still trying to get to grips with life and keeping organised while working a full time (6 days a week job) And trying to learn all adult things we was never taught about in school.

Twice I have been victim of fines getting very out of hand for petty traffic offences or parking offences which I’m sure I am to blame - so long as evidence is provide I will put my hands up and take the punishment. But on both occasions I have been completely unaware until it gets out of hand. Being a young person living in London for 4 years I have also moved house 4 times, which as many of you know is stressful in itself, not always the first thing on your list is changing the registered address of your vehicle. I have now learned my lesson, shamefully twice but to the Government & Potentially the DVLA can all parking fines, traffic fines not be sent via email address?? It seems a extremely simple solution to both party’s saving time and money (and paper)!!!!! An email address is something we all keep and don’t regularly change it is also something that can be accessed by anytime, anyplace on mobiles or laptops. 

I have a CCJ by my name for falling asleep in my car at a service station aged 18, I was doing a 6hr drive late at night and started to feel tired at the wheel, I thought the sensible option was to pull over for a quick 30 minutes kip but fell asleep for over 2 hours, I didn’t realise at the time that I was only allowed to park in a service station (with a huge car park with hundreds of spaces for max 2hours) again I had just moved house at this time and never received any contact other than the fine that would have been sent to my old address (no good there is it) First time I found out was when I done a credit check 3 years later..

Second offence I was driving a company car while working on a Saturday and was late for a house viewing, I must have slipped concentration and gone through red light (apprently I’ve still not had any evidence) but that is no longer an offence anymore, I’m now being charged for ‘failure to provide details’, again as I moved house and never received the fine, it wasn’t until I managed to get access to my old address for another letter that I found a £826 fine and 6 points addressed to me. 

 

All this can can be very easily avoided and fines can be very simply paid if you send details and evidence by email. I know have a 3rd court day again, wasting my time, and money along with the judges and everyone else’s time and TAX payers money. 

I drive a lot with work and while I appreciate a lot of this could have been avoided if I didn’t make small mistakes. But we can make this easier to resolve.
