  1. They always reject your appeal seems to part of their course to do so but I would write back and ask for the POPLA number..re iterate that how could you buy a ticket if there are no meters in the area.. As so many people have said on here, these companies try and frighten you into paying up and that is why they get away with it. See comment above from esmerobbo and others who have been in the same situation. I contested mine and stuck to my guns..as you can see they caved in - all in the interest of "good faith" which was a laugh. It was a simple fact that it would cost them more to take you to court than the actual fine. Good luck.
  2. I know hysterical isn't it but we know better... sadly in many cases they bully / frighten people into giving in and that is why they get away with it . Sad but true ....I personally do not respond to threats or bullying tactics ..... I hope that more people stand up to them
  3. I have just got back from my holidays to have a letter waiting from UKCPS in which they say in brief "After review of your parking charge appeal we have decided to cancel ..This is a one time gesture of good will and will not be repeated on future occasions................ ...." WooHoo !! I supposed they realised that to issue a notice due tu upside down disabled badge was a ridiculous and no court in the land would up hold this charge. And I was so looking forward to a battle ah well........ good luck to everyone else on this thread - don't let people / companies like this wear you down... hope you all get a result like mine.

  6. Thanks guys.....Just double checking...........as I have previously said I don't scare that easily... heheheh
  7. OK thanks. If my issue got to this stage I would take mum with me ..she is registered owner of car and I am her driver/carer..mum is 87 and in a wheelchair ...do you think that would help my case?
  8. If worse comes to worse and I by no means think this shower will go that far ... Am I correct in thinking that you do not have to appear in court if you don't want and you also have an opportunity to set judgment aside by entering a defence in writing direct to courts? I am getting letters from these at moment and formally rejected their claim. So waiting next letter..so would also welcome advice if I get to same stage as alanmin.
  9. Thanks f16...I never just accept I challenge these type of people.... I joined the forum to find out where I stand and have had some amazing advice which has proved I am correct in my assumptions that UKCPS are trying it on.
  10. first time I knew there was an issue was when I got their first letter....nothing was ever left on windscreen. To be honest they can write as many letters as they like I am not paying this now or ever. I am keeping the letter they have sent me stating "Badge upside down" and using it against them. Not only is it extremely petty but could also been seen as discrimination against disabled. If these people reply to letter I sent yesterday I will forward copy of both letters to the Cinema Complex as doubt they would want this type of thing happening to their customers. May also send copy to the motability as also think they would not be impressed. While I am at it may send copy to POPLA. I am not afraid of standing up to these people some one has to. Right? These companies think that because they are big they can bully us and we will give in just to stop the harassment unfortunately in some instances that is true but with your help and advice I will not be one of them. By the way who are BPA??
  11. Hi..do you think it s worth me writing to direct POPLA and complaining or wait outcome of my second letter sent to UKPCS yesteday
  12. I am starting to have the same issue (see my thread) initially they said my badge was out of date now they are saying my badge was upside down !! they have again requested copy of disabled badge so referred them to my my first letter which had a copy enclosed. I have also for a second time requested photographic evidence. Irrespective if they send me proof this is a petty reason for a ticket and I doubt any judge would rule against the badge holder. I am sure they would classify this is petty / harassment and more importantly a waste of court time. With regards debt collection company BRING IT ON I say. No reputable collection company would take any action under theses circumstances. Good luck
  13. Hello EricsBrother The alleged offence was 7 Feb 2014 and was parked in the disabled zone in cinema multiplex.. unfortunately can not find the initial letter but it was about 2 weeks ago which would make it around 14-21st March. I replied same day received. The letter I have received today did not have a 10 digit reference number but a six issue number. They gave me 7 days response time to supply them with both copies of disabled badge (which I sent in my first letter) so why again? Mum who is 86 years old and the disabled person is so upset. We took her out for the evening and now we get this letter. She is afraid that these people will take us to court. I said bring it on but she is terrified and wants to pay £100 ....
  14. Hi Last month I received a letter from UKPS issue a fine of £100 (with the standard reduction £60 if I pay in 14 days) saying that I was illegally parked in a disabled zone with out of date badge. I wrote back attaching copy of my badge showing it was current and that no ticket had been left on windscreen. Thought that was the end of that BUT this morning received a letter saying appeal rejected and that the badge was actually upside down so they could not validate it. They also requested proof. What more proof can I give!! I have just written back and re-iterated what I requested in my initial letter - a) copy of initial ticket and b) photographic evidence. What kind of company will issue a ticket to a disabled person because badge was displayed upside down!! Anyone know where I stand on this legally??
