Dart Charge and Bailiffs
Last year, bailiffs made over 200,000 visits to motorists to enforce non payment of a Dart Charge. If you have received a Notice of Enforcement from Marston Holdings Ltd, Equita Ltd or JBW Judicial Services Ltd it is vitally important that you deal with the correspondence immediately in order to avoid a personal visit and the debt increasing by £235 and the possibility of your car being seized. Our new page on this subject can be viewed here.
Dart Charge Out of Time witness statement (TE7 and TE9)
If you have received a telephone call, a text message, letter or personal visit from a bailiff representing Marston Holdings Ltd, Equita or JBW Judicial Service Group in relation to an unpaid Dart Charge that you had not known about (usually because all notices had been sent to a previous address) then all bailiff enforcement will be placed on hold when an Out of Time witness statement is submitted.
