  1. Seems like they have changed the threatening company. The recent letter is from Zenith collections. Is it normally their next point of call? Zenith Collections.PDF
  2. I have been reading quite a lot of the other posts, but some people say that when they wrote a snooty letter back to DPR saying they have no right to impose fines as they are not the land owner, and that their signs are illegible, and their charges are illegal etc- they stop pursuing you. And some are writing complaints to the council too. But some other people don't reply nor react to them at all. I was just wondering which one was best, to be honest, as I have been reading other threads for about 2 hours yesterday, but there aren't any recent updates on those posts - so I don't know what happened to those people at the end
  3. Hello everyone. I received 3rd letter last week. I have made another PDF with all the letters and pictures. I tried to make them as big as possible this time, so you can read. I have ignored them so far. I am thinking I need to write a reply to them now of some sort without disclosing the name of the driver? What would the wise people say?

  4. ok, sorry, will re-scan tomorrow, maybe will be able to go take some more pictures
  5. I went there and took some pictures, from the street on the side I was turning from the sign is looking the other way, it's only noticeable if you are turning into the car park from the other side (but I took both pictures) There are signs at the carpark, which I didn't see in the pouring rain and the dark, and no signs next to the shop, where I parked, but looking at the picture now - there's a banner on the shop wall quite high that says about parking, but I wouldn't be looking that high up above the car when parking. I found the parking machine, and took a picture of that, just in case - but I did not see it at the time. Also attached in the next post 2 PDFs - one of the original letter from Smart Parking, the other one is from DRP Debt collectors, which arrived yesterday, asking for £150. The DRP's letter says the Reason for Issue: Insufficient parking time. Also it says - the person liable for this parking charge is the person who was the driver when it was issued. I haven't replied to them so far, and their pictures from the initial letter don't show the driver, so there's no chance for them to know who was driving. Shall I keep ignoring them or reply something, like that I don't agree with their charges? Or by doing this I will admit that I was the driver? Thank you here is everything in one PDF docs1.pdf
  6. Thank you for your reply. I didn't notice any parking signs, but as I looked on Google Maps there's one small one by the entrance to the estate. I didn't notice any parking machines either, but that maybe because it was raining heavily and I didn't expect it to be a paid-for carpark. We got out of the car and run to the Range shop - we parked right next to the door, which is a way away from the turn where I saw the parking sign on Google maps. I still have the receipt from The Range from that day, but they are not picking up the phone. I will keep calling The Range and go there on Saturday to take pictures of the signs and parking meters
  7. Hi all! I have received a parking charge - I had no idea I need to pay there, as it is a retail park and those are usually don't charge for parking - I am never shopping there again, that's for sure! We have been in the shop for about 35 min. And now they are asking for £54 or £90 if I don't pay by 14th October! PCN's received through the post [ANPR camera capture] 1 Date of the infringement 22/09/2018 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] Date on the letter 01/10/2018 3 Date received - I don't know, hubby opened it and chucked the envelope out 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012?

[Y/N?] post it up No 7 Who is the parking company? Smart Parking Ltd 8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] Havens Bank Retail Park, Exeter For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under.
