  1. Hello I could use some help - On 1 January 2018 I visited Margate and paid and parked in the town. Having finished the visit it was becoming dark and I was driving back towards Ramsgate when the satellite navigation system on my phone jammed. I pulled off the road into an empty car park (the Lido) which looked closed and run down, to attend safely to the satellite system on the mobile phone. when I had gotten the navigation system working again I tried to find my way back onto the main road again. There are a number of posts missing from the side of the car park which lead onto a road which I mistook for the exit. At a certain point I realised this was not an exit but in fact Newgate Promenade so I then turned the car around and drove back towards the road by the way that I had entered. When I received the pcn from Parking Eye they included 2 dark pictures with only headlight and number plate visible - entering (16.47) and leaving (16.57) the time difference being 10 minutes. I had no idea they were taking pictures on the site I suspect there are no signs stating this fact. Since then I appealed to parking eye and then POPLA I include a pdf of the appeal to POPLA, I didn't get any advice on legal arguments and they both turned it down. They also refused the pictures of missing posts that I copied from google street view saying they were from 2015 while offering no possibility to provide recent pictures but simply discarding that claim (I include as attachment the POPLA verdict). Now I have received a claim form dated 23 July 2018 from the County Court Business Centre for £175. I would usually pay a parking fine to avoid the hassle but as I find this so unfair I continue to wish to contest it. I have only a few days left to send in my defence the court has given me an email address, I have untill 4pm this Tuesday (28 Aug 2018). I believe the defence needs to cover any points I wish to make so I need to sort them out very quickly. I have been reading about the very similar case of 'yourturntopay' [Parking Eye claimform - ANPR PCN Lido car park, Cliftonville, Kent BB on Display] which sounds very similar only I was in the other half of the car park which has a bigger sign by the entrance but otherwise looks the same. I wonder if it would be possible to use the same arguments? My arguments in the POPLA appeal (in the pdf attachment Parking Ticket Margate 1-1-18 redacted) were that I never intended to park I pulled over for road safety concerns to fix the sat-nav. Because the posts in the car park were missing I mistook the exit route and thus prolonging the stay this being due to the bad state of repair of car park. It was only 10 minutes in total so petty to try to charge I didn't mention the fact that it was badly lit, and I believe the notice board by the entrance is not lit but I didnt know if this would be an acceptable argument at the time and didnt mention it. Also I am unaware what courtesy period Parking eye allow as to give a ticket after only 10 minutes seems extreme. Unfortunately I live in London so taking pictures of the car park and checking the condition is pretty difficult and would mean a 5 hour trip. -Any advice/suggestions on how best to proceed would be much appreciated - I have to send in my defence (the court has given me an email address) by 4pm this Tuesday (28 Aug 2018) so only 3 days left. I thought a courtesy period of 10 minutes was law but I’m not sure where I saw that now?, does anybody know if parking eye allow a courtesy period in their car parks as one would imagine 10 minutes to be reasonable?

  2. Hey guys. So I got my first ever PCN today, through the post. 1 Date of the infringement 24/06/2018 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 28/06/2018 3 Date received 30/06/2018 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? Yes 6 Have you appealed? {y/n?] post up your appeal] No Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up 7 Who is the parking company?ParkingEye 8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] Lido (1) in Margate, Kent For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. It says BPA on the letter. It was just getting dark when I entered the car park, and it was packed (we were there to see a show). I honestly didn't see any place to pay for parking, nor did I see any signs that I needed to pay. I had a blue badge which was displayed clearly and the correct time was set. Not entirely sure what to do with this! Any advice about how to proceed would be appreciated. The car park is not local to me, but I'm not the only one that's had trouble here I've found a link to this post which shows pictures of the car park if that helps: https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?476286-Parking-Eye-claimform-ANPR-PCN-Lido-car-park-Cliftonville-Kent-BB-on-Display&p=5074782&viewfull=1#post5074782 I've also attached a copy of the letter I received (front and back). Many thanks in advance
