This year I have got a parking ticket when I came to see a movie.
Apparently the car park just in front of cinema doors belongs to another Bingo company and is controlled with UKPC.
I didnt even noticed small signs saying its the car park just for Bingo registered users only
and after the movie found a NTD. It was issued 9-4-2016 with 100£ fine.
Back home I went through the forums and threads looking for information and noticed that the best thing is just ignore it.
in 10-05-2016 I received NTK from UKPC reminding me their fees which I also ignored.
After 15 days another letter came up with Final reminder to pay and that I burn in hell.
There was a paragraph sounding like this:
"Your vehicle was in breach of the terms and conditions of parking which were clearly
and prominently displayed and agreed by the driver when your vehicle was parked on private land.
Despite issuing Parking Charge and writing to you previously we (UK Parking Control) have not received payment
. If, after a period of 14 days, (beginning with the day after this notice is given)
the amount requested in this notice has not been paid in full the charge will be passed to debt recovery.
If necessary, County Court proceedings will be commenced against you for the amount outstanding,
interest and court costs.
If the Court orders Judgment against you and payment of that Judgment is not made this may affect your ability to borrow money or obtain credit in the future.
A warrant may also be issued by the Court's appointed bailiff to recover the payment.
At this point you would also become liable for the additional fees of the bailiff."
I ignored that too.
On 10-06-2016 I have received letter from DRP (Debt Recovery Plus Ltd) which sounds like this:
"Demand for payment of an unpaid parking charge £160.00
Our client has written to you recently about the unpaid parking charge detailed above.
As they have not received payment, they have referred the matter to us for collection.
Supreme Court of the United Kingdom - landmark court decision
On 4th November 2015 a landmark judgment was handed down in favour of a parking operator
who took a motorist to court for non payment of a typical parking charge.
This case was seen as an important 'test case' due to the complex legal arguments used by both sides.
The ruling sets a legally binding precedent on all similar cases for the whole United Kingdom.
You now need to pay the amount due of £160. Please make sure that your payment reaches us no later than 20/06/2016. You can pay online.. waffle waffle...
What if you don't pay what you owe
If yo uare liable for thios charge and do not pay the full amount by 24/06/2016
or if you not agreed a payment option with us by then,
we will recommend to the creditor that court action should be taken to recover what you owe."
Now I am not sure shoud I continue ignoring or do something as all the forum threads
I read was written in 2014 and not sure about the law changes..
Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!
