    Default Euro car parks ANPR PCN - MRH Esso meads Purfleet **WON AT POPLA**

    Hi guys i got a euro car park ticket by anpr for 100 for a unpaid 44 minute stayit was address to the keeper of the vehicle.

    in the instance i had a massive tyre blowout which shredded my tyre entirely so i pulled into the Esso garage up teh road to wait for the AA.

    i didnt notice the signage, i was busy trying to get the car moving again.

    where do i stand, can i appeal it?

    Can you have a look at this thread please.

    Copy and paste the relevant bits of that (along with your answers) to this thread so that we can see all the details.

    Also, scan, redact and uploadicon your NtK to the thread so that we can see what Euro Car Prats have inevitably got wrong.


    Do nothing else (no appeal etc) until we've had a look at everything and give you some advice

    We could use your help

    Not quite sure how on earth anyone is supposed to read that signage from a moving vehicle (at any speed).

    Euro car parks always mess up. And 99% of the time its signage. The other 1% is paperwork

    Polar1882 on post 2 one of our experts said do not appeal until we have seen everything and advised you. There are several reasons for this.
    1] by appealing the writer often gives themself away as being the driver. [eg I couldn't read the signs because they were too small]. It is the driver who parked but it is the keeper that these companies have to write to.

    2] it is often not the font size of the sign that is wrong but what they have said in the small print that matters. In your case there may have been nothing wrong with what was stated in the small print on that sign. The main bones of contention may be on another of their signs or even on their NTK. By appealing at the wrong time they may well feel that you have insufficient knowledge about the subject and would feel that they would beat you in Court. Your appeal may have convinced them to take you to Court whereas had you waited and given them all the reasons why they had no chance against you they would probably have moved on to other motorists.

    I can tell you now that your appeal will be rejected. While you are waiting, could you please post up the NTK and we definitely do need photos of the signs where you
    you were parked . Then we will look at the wording to see if it can form a contract between the company and the motorist. Quite often it doesn't and it is that which will be a much stronger reason why they wouldn't go to Court rather than a font size on one sign.

    I hope that I didn't come across too harsh but beating these crooks takes time. Please read other threads on here especially ones where their circumstances are similar to yours or Euro carparks are involved and do not write to them again until all the info has been gathered.

    One other thing, please check with the local Council to see if they have planning permission to have the signs erected and they are permitted to use ANPR. If they do not have it, their signs and cameras are there illegally. It comes under the Town and Country Act advertisements and planning approval for the ANPR.

    I've redacted that document properly for you

    No need for measurements, just get some good photos of the signs including their surroundings so that we can see them in context.

    I don't even think that as you were genuinely broken down that could be described as parking.

    agree to that,
    the contract is for a parking event and that means as you couldnt move the car you cant consider their offer as being applicable.

    They will of course say that you are pbliged to pay up because you saw the signs but still decided to break down on their land or whatever bull they wish to use to try and bludgeon the money out of you.

    I'm not sure what arguments you used but they seen to be addressing points that we wouldnt advise using and miss those that are relevant to your case.

    This doesnt make then right though,
    no signs where you entered mean they didnt have adequate signage and as said,
    you were invited onto the land and broke down so that is not a breach of the conditions offered on the signs you didnt see.

    You now ignoreicon then and any dac who writes up to the poinjt where they threaten legal action and then you come back here for advice on what to put in a rebuttal letter.

    Hi
    Just noticed something in their signage. 45 minutes free of charge! You were on site for 43 minutes 22 seconds. If they are stating that the sign is at this site, take them at their word. I would think that POPLAicon would throw allow an appeal as you will be appealing on matters of fact, not mitigation. AND where is the 10 minute grace period.



    I think ECP may have problems with basic mathematics
