A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
Does anyone know if the wheel clampers at bounds green are legit or can some action be taken against them? A friend got clamped today, we have also been victim to them, it is nothing less than robbery in my opinion... no signs, lurking right next to the spaces, demanding £170 then saying they'll do a deal @ £125; "I need to feed my 5 kids" etc etc. They are outrageous. I heard private wheel clampers were going to be outlawed but don't no if that ever got through... Anyone ever got their money back?
No, we haven't seen the back of them. See this video taken at 15:30 today.
Please, if you can, come and participate in the photo-shoot tomorrow.
That's excellent news! I would love to be there tomorrow but I have to be out of town. I look forward to seeing the piece in the paper! Well done Kevin.
Correction:Time video was taken, 17:30.
Just want to say that I was disappointed at the turn-out this morning. It would be nice to know if the local community actually wants to see the back of the clampers?
What does everybody think?
Would people commit to attending if we organised a campaign/ photo-shoot for the press and gave a week's notice?
Hi Zaza - I'm sure we do want to see the back of them, but there was fairly short notice of today's photo-call (I've only just read about it), plus it's a bank holiday weekend. A week's notice could help boost numbers.
Just looked into what is happening on this Bill and someone has posted on YouTube that this doesn't become law until October 2012, even then, if they put a barrier up on the slip road then they can still carry on clamping as 'Lawfull authority' applies to legit security if that's is what Sango are? So celebration may be a little premature. Hope this is not the case!
