A blow for motorists
The Barry Beavis appeal decision is a huge blow for motorists. We thought contract law is clear in that it can’t impose a penalty but this is a game changer.

We would still suggest that motorists consider appealing to POPLA if they feel that a particular charge is excessive or not clearly signed or the breech of the rules is insignificant.
