Reading around the place I've drafted the following letter:
Wiltshire Council WITHOUT PREJUDICE
PO Box 3106
25th May 2009
Re: PENALTY CHARGE NOTICE xxxxxxxxxx - Issued xx/05/09
Notice of Discharge of Outstanding Penalty Notice and Request for Clarification.
You have apparently made allegations of criminal conduct against me.
You have apparently made demands upon me.
I do not understand those apparent demands and therefore cannot lawfully fulfil them.
I seek clarification of your document so that I may act according to the law and maintain my entire body of God given Natural Rights, specifically, I request clarification of all of the following:
1. The Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) states:
“Civil Enforcement Officer (CEO) WN012 who had reason to believe that the following contravention had occurred and that a penalty charge is now payable”
Can you please provide me with full details of the evidence you hold that a contravention did indeed occur?
2. The PCN also states:
Can you please provide me with an explanation of what Code 83 means?
I conditionally accept your offer to agree that I owe £50.00 upon proof of claim of all of the following:
1. Upon proof of claim that the charge was the result of a lawful investigation unmarred by prejudice.
2. Upon proof of claim that I am a member of the society whose statutes and subsisting regulations you are enforcing.
3. Upon proof of claim that there is a nameable society that I belong to and that the laws covered within this alleged transgression state that they apply to me within that named society
Failure to accept this offer to clarify and to do so completely and in good faith within 7 days will be deemed by all parties to mean you and your principal or other parties abandon all demands upon me.
Sincerely and without ill will, vexation or frivolity
I've taken the sample letter here
as the basis for it, but as the PCN was on the windscreen and not addressed to my Person, not all of it felt the right tact to start off with. So what I've ended up with is a conditional notice of acceptance along with questions asking for clarification and evidence of wording on the PCN itself, followed by some legalese challenges.
Does that seem a good starting point?
