180,000 people were charged last year, two thirds of them women.

It frustrates me that they condemn you and send threatening letters simply because they don't have a license at an address. We had a major house fire and had to move into a rented house. I moved our tv license to our rented property (we pay by DD) and I did it by phone specifically so they had on record that our house was uninhabitable while it was repaired. Of course we still received the standard Youre breaking the law letters at our permanent address! I don't actually begrudge paying it I just wish they'd listened to me...
