How the Parking and Traffic Appeals Service can help you:
The Parking and Traffic Appeals Service, PATAS, provides a free independent adjudication service for deciding disputed parking and bus lane penalties issued by local authorities for parking or bus lane offences, and for moving traffic contraventions including London’s Lorry Control Scheme.
If you are a motorist who wants to challenge a penalty notice you must first contact the Local Authority that issued the penalty. If your appeal is rejected, you have the right to appeal to the independent adjudicator, by contacting PATAS.
PATAS aim to provide a fast, efficient service that gives fair and impartial decisions, is easy to understand and is as informal as possible. They have a team of Adjudicators who decide the appeals and can direct the local authority involved to cancel the penalty.
The PATAS hearing centre is at Angel Square, Upper Ground Floor, Block 2, London, EC1V 1NY. The hearing centre has disabled access, and hearing appointments are arranged, according to motorist preferences, between 8:00am and 7:30pm during the week and between 9:00am and 1:00pm on Saturdays.
