    Default Help UK CPS ltd Parking Ticket Leeds

    Hi I droped my grilfriend off at the bus station a few days ago and found I had a parking ticketicon issued by UK CPS Ltd for 75.

    I was parked somewhere in leeds and I litterally jumped out for 5mins maximum, the B must have been waiting in his car! I didnt even see the ticket till half way down the road otherwise I would have looked for him!

    I have spent the past couple of hours looking through these forums and im a bit bamboozelled.


    From what I've read so far should I just ignoreicon all their letters and not contact them even though I was probably in the wrong for parking there or should I just pay and save the hassle?.

    Any Help would be much appreciated..........

    Throw it in the bin and ignoreicon it. But remove the specific details as UKCPS read this forum.

    The majority of people on this forum have had no problem from just ignoring the tickets.

    They are NOT "fines" as private companies have no right to fine anyone.

    Court papers are extremely rare. See the recent case where Excel failed to turn up.

    No doubt peternet(UKCPS employee) will be along to tell you to "appeal" - ignoreicon him also - there is no "appeals proceedure".

    Why do you think you were 'in the wrong'? If they wanted 1000 would you just shrug your shoulders because you think it's your fault?

    Treat these parasites with the contempt they deserve:

    • do not pay
    • do not contact them
    ignoreicon any letters you receive
    • they will give up an go away after 4 or 5

    It's also pretty difficult to consider and accept the terms of any alleged contract from your car. Sounds to me like you parked up, went to read the sign, declined to accept the contract and left the premises.

    Gangbos become the latest measure for fighting antisocial behaviour | UK news | The Guardian


    The crime and security bill also proposed licensing private wheelclamping companies. A statutory code of conduct will place a cap on fines, prevent cars being towed too soon after being clamped and an independent appeals process for motorists who feel they have been unfairly clamped or fined.

    in their dreams they will take action and then send baliff's

    YOU MUST DO THE FOLLOWING WITHOUT FAIL

    1) ignoreicon
    2) ignoreicon SOME MORE
    3) GO TO 1

    now you have done that, if you must send 10 a month send it your local PDSA or a deserving cause of your choice
