My dh recently got a congestion charge penalty notice really late,(about 2 weeks after he didn't pay the charge). I was really miffed about this as it had gone up from £50.00 to £100.00 which I felt was really unfair so I sent them a cheque for £50.00 and sent an accompanying letter to say we had been on holiday when the notice had been sent. They now want evidence of said holiday in form of receipts,tickets or a hotel booking confirmation.
Is any one willing to bend the law a little,take a stand against this injustice and provide me with an alibi??
This may be the shortest thread in history but I'm sure if anyone owns a B&B or hotel on here a little letter would suffice-I will willingly pay for any costs incurred plus a little extra???
Am really to ask this but just cant afford to pay £100.00!
Exactly my thoughts. If you went to stay with friends or family then you would have no receipts or proof or anything. And with kids you often go to visit grandparents so I would just get a friend to write a letter saying you were there
