  1. Hi, Appreciate any advice with the following please. Driving from Kent to Tyneside stopped at Leicester Forest East at 6pm had a coffee fell asleep and left at 9pm. It was dark so no recollection of any signage being displayed. I have now received the first letter asking for £100 but discounted to £60 if I pay within 14 days. I feel miffed as it was late and I was as tired and the car park was empty. What is the best couse of action? I fear that making an appeal to PE will just be rejected or should I just ignore the enevitable PE threatening letters which will fol
  2. Hi - I was caught by an ANPR overstaying by an hour and a half at Lidl, Hayes. I was a customer in the store that evening and have proof of payment of purchases that did take a long time (kids winter wear in the aisle of shame...) but did subsequently overstay beyond that. Details are below. Is it worth appealing to Lidl on this one or do I have to suck it up as it was such a substantial amount of time overstayed? Thank you very much 1 Date of the infringement 29.11 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 3.12 3
  3. Hi, first post for a few years on here under a new user name so how I'm doing this right! Husband received a PCN from CE Ltd. He met a friend for KFC, they got chatting, lots to catch up on and he overstayed by 18 mins. He won't have paid any attention to any signage but he was genuinely a customer. Does he have any grounds to contest this as he was actually using the carpark as a customer or do we need to suck it up :/ Thanks in advance

  6. Good evening everyone, A friend and I met up at the costa on the A40 in Greenford a few weeks ago, and we stayed there working on something for about 2 hours. A couple of weeks later he gets a PCN in the post, and I don't. Attached is what they sent him, apparently the max stay time is 90 minutes. Which is utterly ridiculous.. what if someone wants to sit in costa to revise, or work on something? These private parking companies do not have people's interests in mind and institute these ridiculous rules, and the business owners are utter clowns for allowing them to do so. Plea

  8. Hi all, I'm trying resolve this issue with PCN I have received recently from Athena ANPR Ltd for overstay at Lidl. The overstay was 14 min. 35 sec. Arrived at 09:43:43 and left 11:28:18 = duration 1:44:35 Shops opens from 10AM Sunday. Short story, it was Sunday just before 10AM and I saw ppl outside Lidl so I thought it might be open. Parked my car and there was just a queue in front of Lidl..., so went for a walk, as this was my first stay in Mablethorpe. Off course I did forget to take my swimming shorts with me, so spend bit longer in Lidl, looking for
  9. Hi, Just looking for some advice please. I recently went to a small local supermarket and had not realised that there was a time limit on the parking session. There are various signs up but the main entrance sign says "car park for shop users" - see signs for details, I assumed the car park was for users of the car park and that there was no time limit. Unfortunately the time limits were displayed on the other signs up in the car park. I just got a letter with a parking notice, as I was 14 minutes longer that allowed. The reason I took long was my child was fe
  10. I have read through a number of posts to try and assertain my position in respect to a recent Parking Charge Notice issued to me for overstaying in a Aldi car park for 10 mins. The vehicle parked in a space at the Aldi supermarket. Signs state that the maximum FREE parking time is one and half hours, the stay according to PE was 1hrs 40 mins. There wasn't any machine to extend the stay at the car park. I got my Parking charge notice through post i have overstayed for 10 mins, can you please advice. Thanks & Regards Krish
  11. Im preparing a defence for a similar case at the minute. Could you explain how i could use the signage argument in my defence pls. Thanks!
  12. I was at a privately owned retail car park a few weeks ago in the evening and overstayed by 10 minutes . Firstly, I am not the registered keeper; it is my mother's car. She had sent me out for a Mcdonalds for her and we ended up having an argument over the phone. I stayed in the car park for a while before going home so we could both calm down. My mother has schizophrenia so she can be VERY difficult to deal with and very irrational and demanding, hence why I didn't want to go home. Result is, I overstayed in the car park by a whole 10 minutes and 14 seconds.
  13. Can someone please give me some advice on what to do next? I parked in a Parking Eye carpark and paid the appropriate fee. I left before my time was up. I then received a fine and it appears I only entered half my car number rather than the full one. It's a small carpark so it's perfectly obvious that no one else parked there with that combination of letters at those exact times. I've since checked and there IS a sign (set very high above normal eye level when using the machine) saying that I should enter the full number, but it's not a carpark I've used before so I didn't notice.
  14. Hi CAG people. There's a shared free car park for Costco and ToysRus at 30 Waterloo Rd, Liverpool L3 7HY allegedly, the driver of my vehicle parked there for longer than the 3 hours allowed. (by 19 minutes). S&K Car PArk Management have sent a PCN for £78.00 and have demanded payment, or to know who the driver was. I thought the action to take was - do nothing, ignore this speculative invoice, however reading more recent sticky posts, has that advice changed to "respond to them" ? it states, Parking Charge Notice to Registered Keeper, and if I do not provi
  15. My partner received a letter from Care Parking saying that her car had been parked at Parliament retail park, Lancaster, and that it had overstayed the permitted 2 hours. She sent the requisite response, acknowledging being the keeper etc, She has received their rejection with a POPLA code. Can you please give us the advice as to what to do next?
  16. This is POPLA's decision http://static.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/images/smilies/mad2.gif I think I should just let it go to court and cite the Equality Act 2010 and reasonable adjustments but your advice and comments would be helpful The Operator issued parking charge notice number ....... arising out of the presence at Asda, on 12 May 2015, of a vehicle with registration mark ....... for exceeding the maximum permitted stay of 2 hours. It is the Operator’s case that the Appellant parked their vehicle at the site in excess of the maximum permitted stay of 2 h
  17. My daughter overstayed her time in a car park as she was shopping with her autistic brother and has recieved a pcn which I appealed and sent in a copy of his blue badge. The parking company SmartParking have turned down the appeal and advise I go to Popla but I feel that this as with the parking company would be simply a waste of time having read other threads and wondered if I should contact the supermarket and complain or just let it go to court cite the Equality Act 2010 and reasonable adjustments. The car park was free with a two hour time limit. Any advice gratefully recei
  18. Hi, I today received a parking charge from Parking Eye for staying 2h11m in a 2h max stay car park. The charge is £100, reduced to £60 if paid within 14 days. Is this enforceable? It seems ridiculous than anyone can charge that amount for an 11 minutes. Copy of PCN attached. Thanks in advance.
  19. Hi I recently parked in Southport and paid for two hours. I was with my four-year-old and we had a bit of an "accident" so I had to find somewhere to sort him out. I realised the parking was due to expire and we were quite a way from our vehicle, so we caught a bus down the road to get there in time. We arrived just as a parking attendant was finishing sticking a PCN to the windscreen. We were exactly ten minutes over time on a 2 hour ticket. The PCN showed it was observed from five minutes after the expiry until ten minutes after. When I spoke to the attendant he was sympathetic, an
