Default Transport for London can...

...kiss my fucking ass.



So, I recently had to attend 2 seperate wedding for 2 of my oldest friends.

One of which was in Cornwall and one was in Essex. As they were about 4 days apart I had a few days to kill and decided to spend them visiting family members that I don't see often, normally just Christmas time.

So I saw my Grandparents in Bristol and then to London to meet my new little Nephew, who was just 2 months old. Cute as hell!!

I then proceeded to drive from their house in London to Essex for the final wedding before heading home, all via cheap unreliable sat nav on my iphone.



It was an amazing week and very expensive as you can imagine. Lots of money spent on gifts and about 200 on pertrol to zoom about the country even some accomodation costs aswell.

I'm not a tight person with money, in fact i'd consider myself quite generous at times.

---

So, Today I get a text from my girlfriend as I'm sat at my desk at work. She tells me I have a letter and that she's going to open it. It was from 'Trans-cunt for London'.

They have not only sent me a leaflet all about the 'Congestion charge/zone' but ordered me to pay 60 by the 11th October 2012. If i dont it'll be 120.

A bit fucking steap if you ask me.

Stupid cunts!!

Maybe I should have checked about it before I went.

My understanding was that if you enter the zone you get a bill through the post...

Didn't it used to be 6 or something? anyway...

...not that you have to pay it on the day of driving through it or in advance. I had no idea that i would be driving through London until the day I drove through London and had no idea I needed to sort it out first.

I feel conned.

Now, I know pleading ignorance won't really work. I was going to try blagging that I was going on holiday and couldn't pay it before I got back?

Any ideas for excuses? Any that have worked? Shoud I cry down the phone.

Anyone had similar experiences with this charge or any other parking/traffic charges?

Just pay the fine. If you had 4 days to 'kill' then perhaps you could have checked the transporting stuff beforehand to avoid such troubles?

If you had done that, though, it's still no guarantee you're right. Down here we have e-tags that you prepay to use motorways. I was driving to Newcastle, and you have to have it beep three times along the motorway for it to work. It beeped three times, and I thought all was good, until I received the $50 fine in the mail

Yeah, hindsight is a bitch.

I feel slightly regretful and still slightly angered by it. Although, I know I am ultimately to blame.

Ironically I almost crashed cause I was trying to read a congestion doodah sign as I passed it, whilst getting lost and going the wrong way.

Next time I'm taking public transport.

Public transport is the way to go I think. I don't drive unless I absolutely have to.

You should probably pay the fine, although in my experience, unpaid fines just seem to *disappear*

TFL are cunts and the congestion charge is awful. But just pay the fine seriously, it'll save you a lot of pain by trying to figure out an excuse and end up arguing about it.

Pay the fine. Though public transport is a pile of shit though that might just be the Wessex red buses I take to university that are always cramped and late

All transport is shit, it's best to just stay at home...be a recluse...go on the internet...have a drink...or two...ring your dealer.......chase the dragon...

But seriously, transport costs are a joke, especially the excessive rises on train prices. I used to be mad but now I just come to accept it as the norm.
