  1. Yeah I did read up alot on it, and got this general feeling, and I can imagine some of the longer running member on here could possibly be getting bored by the similar threads popping up - I just assumed my case was slightly different, What with the second ticket and an almost 'instant' court threat. Thanks for the time and input guys - Im going to sit tight on this one, See what comes of it. Im actually away to asia in a few weeks and wont be back until next year So fingers crossed it'll be forgotten about by the time im home.
  2. Ok thanks mate. The car is also technically sold, New keeper is due to collect the car before christmas and Im moving abroad next year. Would this cause any issues? Probally best I inform the new keeper and let him just ignore the threats kinda thing.
  3. You sure? I dont fancy going to court over £40 but Id rather not be scammed too lol.
  4. Alright lads hows things? Last month I had parked my car in a supermarket carpark, In Aberdeen. I got back to find a ticket on the window stating the car was there, Worked out I was 20-30mins from over staying. I came on here and scanned.. and chose to ignore this. A friend of mine from Glasgow told me he parks his work van in there when he's up for Jobs and sometimes gets 3 to 4 tickets on the window over a week, but its been going on for years and he never bothered doing anything with it. Now.. Id like to make this clear, I in no way take advantage of this, and iv never set a foot out of line in terms of police, tickets, points or anything. So, Last weekend I was in the same car park and went to apply for my International Drivers Permit and go to the DVLA. Alas.. I was held up in the Post office for what seemed like forever. I got back to find another ticket. I didnt even open it and just put in the back seat. Just now, Iv got home from work to find a letter on the door step. Its from "Trethowans Solicitors" so... Thoughts? Im considering either paying the £40 (it was £15!!!) or just ignoring it all together and if it comes to court, deny the whole thing.. OR send them an envelope full of £40 in single penny's. Thoughts?? Wouldn't mind some advice on this one. Many thanks -Petey Pete. p.s. Id also like to add that I did get a ticket LAST WEEK ASWELL! So thats 2 tickets from the same place in the space of over a month and I have 1 letter.
