As the title, I had received a letter from BWLegal dated 3rd July 2018, regarding a ticket from nearly 6 years ago; 22August 2012.
Upon recieving the ticket in 2012, in my first instance I sent the following email to 'Premier Parking Solutions'
On returning to my car this afternoon I found a fixed penalty notice
on my drivers side window.
This was a terrible shock to me, knowing I had purchased a ticket from
the Pay and display ticket machine.
once inside my car I realised the ticket I had purchased was on the center console of the car,
I can assume that upon closing my car that the Non adhesive ticket that I had purchased and placed on the dashboard had been blown off by the gust of the closing of the drivers door.
I have taken a photo and attached the image so you can see the purchased ticket.
Please take this email as a formal appeal for the issue of the parking charge number …., with the reason why charged was issued ' No Valid ticket on display'
After a automated reply all that time ago, I received many letters from so called debt collectors, and after reading advise online; I ignored.
I did think after nearly 6 year, they would have dropped the case; not so.
I have shot myself in foot in regards to not being driver.
I have since contacted BWLegal, regarding the case within the 30 days they requested.
I have also sent them a photo of the ticket via email, and asked for all documents of proof;
They have now replied to the email with Photos of the car and the original letter of from Premier parking;
but not any signage.
What would my next course of action be?
Would it be to request a CPR 31.14 by post?
Is there any way of finding out if they have started court procedures?
As I think if I can delay them a couple more weeks I would have taken them over the 6 years (Statute of limitations for civil cases).
Thanks in advance
