How to deal with a parking/speeding ticket

Courtesy of the excellent Captain Ranty, (his blog is fascinating, I highly recommend you check it out), here is how you get out of paying for a ticket.

Try it out the next time you receive a speeding or parking ticket. On the giroslip at the bottom, write diagonally across the slip (in red ink, this is very important), "ACCEPTED FOR VALUE", add your National Insurance Number, fill in the amount box with whatever the "fine" was, then sign it in BLUE ink. (This is also important from a lawful point of view). Most of us have been trained to fill in the amount and send it off with a cheque for the required amount. What is happening here is that they just got paid twice. The original fine is withdrawn from your National Insurance Account. Naturally, the powers that be do not want you to know that such an account exists.

There is a lot more stuff like this on his site.

Fucking hell.

Any anecdotal evidence that this works?

Sounds like a new toilet cleaner that gets shit stains off your toilet from where no other cleaner reaches...

I haven't heard if it works or not, but it's worth a try!

I had to put the word verification on, I hate it but it had to be done.

It sounds like just what Gordo was doing to Gadaffi....

On some blogs WV's the most interesting fucking thing.

As this is a hugely popular blog, and you get a cross-section of society dipping in and out, I should add that if you are royalty you need to sign it in purple ink.

Only the great unwashed need to sign in blue ink.

And just so that you know, you can A4V (Accept For Value) your utility bills, your council tax bills, your income tax bills, etc etc.

The list is almost endless.

If you are wondering why, the answer is simple. The UK has been bankrupt since 1868 but they forgot to tell us. In bankruptcy, all debts are forgiven. Including yours.

Oh, and its fun too.

Knock yourselves out.

One tip: the office wallah you send it in to will have no clue and you may get it back with a note asking "What the fuck is this?". Simply send it back again, but this time send it to the top dog. The Chairman, the CEO, the Chief Plod, or whatever.

They know the score.

Rab,

isn't this what Gentleman John Harris has been banging on about.

It's all bollox.

If this is true, this is awesome. Pain in the arse walking around everywhere with a red and a blue pen, but tidy darts nonetheless! And I might just give barclaycard the good news too. It might not work but hey ho, you get nothing if you don't try!

Captain Ranty said...

"Its all bollocks".

Well, I love a cleverly constructed argument, pumped up with facts and research and you did not disappoint.

Good work, fella.

I think INCOMING has made a bit of an "in-joke", misleading though it may be to the sheep.
You see it is all down to the spelling.
In John Harris's video "It's an illusion 2, at the BCG conference", he defines *bollox* as a legal term meaning "to set into confusion". 58min 20sec in.

Captain Ranty said...

If that is the case the I apologise wholeheartedly....

aljahom said...

Is it me, or has the post you refer to disappeared?

Rab C. Nesbitt said...

Al, it's in his post entitled 'things you didn't know you didn't know' dated 28th June.

I can't link to it because he has hyperlinked the post title.

Cheers, Rab :-)
