  1. I don't think I can fill out the form yet as I've not received the court papers but it looks like that is where we are headed. The last communication was received from Napier this weekend after going back and forth in email exchanges. I claim that the parking bay was not clearly marked as disabled (in comparison to the adjacent bay) so contested the £95 fine (£50 if paid in 14 days). I appealed to Napier and then to The IAS. Both failed on ground of contract blah blah blah. The IAS emailed me the outcome. Napier claim to have posted a letter on 7th May which
  2. Ah sorry. Couldn't find where that post was as the site here is not the easiest to navigate. What I have learnt since that post is that Advertising Standards Agency were interested in the signage as it breaches their codes and advised that Trading Standards would also have an interest in incorrect logo use (particularly on the car Napier drive around). The BPA are offering an extension for Napier to amend signage until the end of the year (this appears to be a special arrangement made by their head of operations) and The IPC claim incorrect signage isn't any of their issue as the IP for
  3. Hello, I'd like advice on a scenario in relation to additional fees of debt agencies added to a court claim... A fixed charge amount for a ticket is set at £95.00 (with a reduced rate of £50.00 if paid in 14 days etc) A driver appeals the charge to the parking operator and the external body (POPLA/IAS) and loses so the £95.00 amount is due A driver still refuses to pay so a debt agency is used taking the costs up to £150.00 A driver still refuses to pay so court action commences Can the court action pursue the full £150.00 even if it is obvious from the debt agency website th
  4. It may be of interest for people here to know that Napier Parking Ltd transferred their membership from The BPA to The IPC as of midnight on 29th February 2016. As such they are no longer an accredited member of The BPA and not entitled to say so on signage nor indicate that POPLA are part of their appeals route etc. I was initially informed by the BPA that Napier had 6 months to amend all signage yet this has not occurred 7 months later. Both The BPA and The IAS appear to be working collaboratively on extending this deadline so I contacted the Advertising Standards Agency who informed me
  5. Hi, yes all the signs in the car park state BPA and have the BPA logo and no mention of the IPC. I've taken a lot of photos of the signs etc and I was informed by the BPA that Napier have 6 months to change the signs (we're almost at the 3 month mark and there are no changes as of yet). I was told that Napier should have (with immediate effect on 1st March) covered over reference to BPA and POPLA while waiting for new signs with the IPC logo to be made so as to not misinform the public... at the time of writing this post this hasn't occurred either. Unfortunately t
  6. Many thanks for the encouraging words. The parking company was Napier and I was issued the FCN on 1st March 2016. I've attached the [email protected] () and Reminder Signs () that mention BPA and POPLA. I've also attached a floor plan and some photos (my own and some used by the Napier during the appeal) I've censored vehicle number plates for privacy. The images can be seen in this attachment . I believe the FCN is unfair but I do welcome thoughts/comments. It transpires that Napier no longer fall under BPA/POPLA as of 29th February 2016 yet these signs are still on display
  7. I wonder if anyone can help? I received a PCN for parking in a disable bay at a private residential underground car park. I challenged this through both the appeal routes (parking operator and The IAS) based mainly on lack of clear signage at the bay. The ground markings are small and painted in red which were not visible while reversing in to the space and not visible once parked. There was a sign on a pillar however this was high up and to the side of the space and again not visible when reversing. My argument is that signage should have been directly behi
