    Question ParkingEye penalty charge

    i have recently got a charge notice from parkingeyeicon, should I ignoreicon it or send the first templateicon letter ?
    Thanks

    This is what the notice says:

    On 24/01/10 the registration vehicle XXXXXXX was in your name.

    Photographic evidence shows you entering the Legat centurion Car Park at 14:00:49 and departing at 17:33:22. The maxium period permitted is 1 hour 30 minutes, so by calculation it is demonstrated that the vehicle has remained at the store for longer than permitted.

    On the specified date, you were the registered owner, keeper, or hirer of the vehicle in question. As such, you are responsible to ensure that the terms and conditions for parking, as set down and claerly displayed in the car park, are complied with. Therefore you are required to pay the following excess parking chargeicon within 28 days from this notice.

    It goes on to say that 80 must be paid or 50 if paid within 14 days. 110 if I don't cough up in 28 days.

    The letter is designed to look like an official penalty charge, with the chequered border.

    I appreciate the answers thanks, but could I have something a bit more constructive? There is a logo, BPA approved on the letter doesn't that mean anything?
    Thanks for your help

    To expand:

    All you have is an unenforceable invoice for alleged breach of contract. The remedy for breach of contract is actual losses. The 50 is a contractual penalty charge. The 80 and 110 are spurious, made up amounts that have no relation to anything.

    Your actions on a free car park have cost them zero pounds - their actual losses.

    If you're in a 12 month BT contract and you cancel the contract half way through, you'd owe them the remainder of the 6 month contract ie. their actual losses by you leaving and going to another supplier. They cannot and do not charge a 'cancellation fee' because that would be an unenforceable contractual penalty.

    In practical terms these parking companies give out invoice dressed up to look like parking tickets, buy the keeper's address from the DVLA and send out threatening junkmail. A great number of the uninitiated will happily send a cheque back.

    It's a mail [problem].

    ignoreicon them completely and don't be alarmed by the threatening junkmail you'll receive. After 3 or 4 debt collectoricon letters they'll give up.

    parking eyeicon are well known and haunt Aldi car parks in particular.

    BPA is a members association. If it had the logo of your local golf club it would the same thing. Nothing.

    LouPapy - just read the various PPC based threads and you see there is nothing to worry about. ignoreicon is the best way to combat these [problem]mers and minimise the threatening letters

    It is very very rare for a PPC to even consider court as they know they will loose. On the few occasions they claim to have done so and won it is either badly defended or more likely a set up to try and give the PPC some vague credibility.

    I have told the current bunch chasing me for an alledged unpaid invoice that I will not pay them a penny and they will have to proceed to court but still they will not do so

    There is NO appeals process only a let us [problem] you department

    ignoreicon everything and do NOT contact them

    Hi All - Received one of these jokers letters last week and was just about to appeal/pay when read all help on this forum. Guess the advice is just to stick it out even though the wife fretting were going to a CCJ or Bailiffs coming around. Find it hard to believe they can juts pressurise you into paying in this manner. Think will just sit tight and await the letters/phone callsicon etc. Dont like fact they are coming after me as registered keeper and I wasnt even in the bloody car.

    Many thanks for all posts!!

    it can never be a CCJ nor bailiffs issue as its not a criminal matter

    do some reading and ignoreicon their 'invoice'

    With respect, that only applies to people who don't know anything about CCJ's and bailiffs. Which is exactly what the PPC's play on.

    Many thanks for all advice - Showed wife the forum and the many messages about parking eyeicon etc. and she is now more 'relaxed' about sitting tight and ignoring the letters which I understand will be quite threatening.

    Once again many thanks for all advice!!

    debt collectionicon letters are a waste of trees' lives.

    I've moved house 3 times in 4 years and every time I'd have about 10 debt collection letters dropping through every week.

    Nothing ever happens and they gradually dry up.

    Hi Jibbers

    If she is still uncertain then there is a website set up to counteract a Morrisons / parking eyeicon [problem] here which will confim that ignoreicon works
    Received a “ticket”? What to do next.. Carparkreigate's Blog

    Yes you will get a lot of threaten junk mail purporting to be from debt collectorsicon and Solicitors but it is all part of the [problem] to make you think you have done something terrible wrong and is to divert you from using plain old common sense and realising it is a [problem]

    Even when you tell these buggers that you will not pay and they will have to follow through with court proceedings they refuse

    ignoreicon and spend the money on a good meal
