  1. Thank you. This sign was at the entrance to the carpark, and the only one I saw upon parking. I didn't see any signs that were directly lit. I didn't even know how to pay and I couldn't get close enough to the sign to read it. I was expecting somewhere to pay for the parking, but found nowhere. Like I say, it was almost midnight, extremely dark and a poorly lit carpark. I assumed there must be somewhere to pay on the way out, but when I couldn't find an exit and had to go out the way I came, I was on a one-way system that took me directly onto the main road. The only way to try and search further would be to re-enter the carpark near the front again, which I believed would have added additional parking charges. I had been directed to the hospital by the 111 service, I had no choice but to use the carpark for medical reasons, the main road has double yellow lines the entire road (for many miles), with private residential driveways only. I believe that this amounts to undue influence by attempting to form a contract with me, with the only alternative being forgoing medical treatment. So, even if the sign had in 3 foot lettering: "£70 charge to park here", I believe any supposed contract should be void. When I left the carpark, I was in pain from a painful medical procedure, it was very late, and due to Parking Eye's poorly designed carparking system and with no clear way to pay, I felt it was unjustified for me to continue circling around a hospital carpark at night, potentially putting other carpark users at risk. At the point when I left the carpark, I had no idea who Parking Eye were, let alone that they administer the hospital's carpark. I have been to many carparks (including hospitals) that only required payment in prime hours when local retail districts were in use, and not after 6pm, for example. So, I believed that, this must be the case at this hospital too, as there was no indication of where or how to pay, and that I must have just driven through an open ticketing gate somewhere that I couldn't see in the dark. If this wasn't the case, the hospital would be able to request my payment at a later date, in which case I would send them the £2 promptly, with an apology, and advise them to improve their carpark layout.
  2. Hi all, thanks for the responses so far. 1 Date of the infringement 09/08/2021 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 17/08/2021 3 Date received 21/08/21 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [Y/N?] Yes 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Just the ANPR photos. I might go back to the hospital to take a couple of pictures. 6 Have you appealed?

For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. Independent Appeals Service (POPLA) Sorry, I chose the wrong file to upload and then removed it from the media section, but it won't let me remove the reference in the post body. So, sorry about the broken reference. Maybe it's because I'm on my phone
  3. Hi, I went to A&E around 10pm one evening to remove a large splinter under my thumb nail that I couldn't remove. I saw the parking charges sign, but it was really dark and difficult to read. I intended to pay the £2 for my parking when I exited at around 11pm, but I couldn't find anywhere to pay or even a gated exit! I ended up driving out the way I came in, after circling the car park for a few minutes. I've now received a parking fine with cameras showing my car entering and exiting the carpark. They want £70 or they will reduce to £42 (out of the goodness of their hearts) if I pay before the 31st of August. The carpark is operated by PrivateEye. What are your opinions, is there any point appealing the decision?
