  1. I have been asked a good question by a friend. M&S near us have now introduced a 4 hour free parking, using Parking Eyes as the administrator. But they share’s this car park with 2 other large stores, Tesco and outfit. *This is a massive car park and people use it park and walk to work, There are no options for all day parking, The bays are not marked with any floor paint indicating whose bay they belong to Tesco or M&S etc. PS. To be fair to my friend she use M&S most days to get her lunch. So her question is, there are no parking sings on the entrance that she uses to get o
  2. Hi, Just a general question, there's no hidden agenda. A private road close to me has a no parking sign at it's entrance stating that anyone parking in the road will receive a 'penalty' of £60. My question is are they allowed to use the word 'penalty'? Thanks
  3. Hello guys, So this morning I had a letter through the post stating the following: PARKING CHARGE - NOTICE TO KEEPER Vehicle Registration: redacted Vehicle Make / Model: redacted Site Name: Ferry Meadows Period of Parking: Sunday 11 Jun 2017 18:06:52 to Sunday 11 Jun 2017 19:16:24 Reason for Issue: None Payment of Parking Amount of Charge: £50.00 reduced to £25.00 if paid within 14 days Driver Liability The driver of the above vehicle is liable for a Parking Charge in the above amount which, at the date of this notice, remains unpaid in full. The charge ha
  4. You've helped me once before (post4830039) with a 'parking charge notice'. I don't think I actually need help this time, but wanted to post on this site for general awareness in case there's a pattern in how this firm operates. I parked in a car park where controls are effective 08:00-18:30. The PCN shows I entered the car park at 18:08:25. I purchased a ticket (which I still have) at 18:12, paying £2 for 20 minutes as I didn't have anything smaller. The ticket I purchased shows the expiry time as 18:32 (ie, 2 minutes after parking controls ceased to be effective). Today I
  5. I have received a penalty notice for turning left at a junction when there is a "no left turn" sign post at the junction, and a "must turn left" sign post about 30 metres further back on the road. In the past it was OK to turn left, but I guess at some point in the last year, usage had changed. My question is in two parts: - Is there any legal requirement to have a painted "turn right" sign on the road itself, in addition to sign posts? - What is the legal requirement for lighting the signs? - the junction is in a commercial area with street lights, ..because I simp
  6. Good afternoon, On 07/10/2016 I parked in the Bradford Forster Square carpark, lost track of time, and overstayed by 37 minutes. On 17/10/16 I received a Parking Charge Notice for £85, payment to be made within 28 days of issue (of notice); discounted to £50 if I pay within 14 days. They have stated the Date Issued as 13/10/2016 in the reference section and 10/11/2016 in the big black box, but that is probably irrelevant. I have entries on my bank statement to prove I went to Costa there, I actually spent all morning there catching up with an old friend, but the entr
  7. Since they now seem to know exactly who I am I see no point in continuing to keep my fight against this particular 'company' under wraps, though of course I may not always reveal all details in advance ... For those who haven't seen my previous posts re this particular parking company, some background is that I live in an apartment, the car park for which can only be accessed by crossing an Aldi car park for which we have a right of way. The Aldi car park is of course managed by PE who have ANPR cameras pointed at the entrance/exit, but nowhere else. This means of cours
  8. A couple of days ago I parked on a road that had a sign that I noticed said 'Permit Holders Only on Event Days' but nothing else. i.e. It did not indicate what days the events were or indicate where the nearest sign would be to find out the dates or time of the restriction. When I returned about 30 minutes later sure enough I had a ticket. I have since established that the restriction was for 2 hours before the event started and lasts for an hour after it finishes. There are also alternative signs at the ends of roads that show the restriction dates and periods but I only established thi
  9. New store opened up close by, so had a visit. I think the small print is even smaller than PE's... And as a parent I can park within marked bays, but my child ( and any other child ) cannot drive legally, so would not need a parking space surely?
  10. New thread for discussing (possible) PPC signage and website non compliance with the Companies Act 2006. I've asked that a couple of posts be moved here from another thread, and we can then continue the discussion without hijacking another thread
  11. Hi guys, new here so I hope I conform to set posting standards. Any issues, please point them out. Anyway, I got a PCN by the council through the post for "BEING IN A BUS LANE". I think the PCN itself didnt contain any errors which would make it invalid. The photographic pictures show that I did indeed briefly use the bus lane. I was surprised at myself that I would drive in a bus lane without realising it, so at the time I put it down to it being dark and raining heavily, causing glare off the road surface. I appealed the ticket on many grounds, including compassionate, high
  12. Can anyone explain what signs are required on pay and Display car parks. Are there any rules regarding size of lettering/colour of background etc? Is there precise legislation I can refer to?
  13. I would be grateful for some advice on this, as I have been reading around UKPC Parking charges and seem to be getting a mixed message as how to proceed. Yesterday I parked in a multi-storey shopping centre, in what I thought was a free space. I paid the ticket in a machine and returned to find a Parking Charge notice stuck to the windscreen. I realised, having read the notice that I was parked in a permit only space. There was a sign which I had not seen, on the wall behind saying that it was a permit space but with a car full of children, I had not noticed. The penalt
  14. Just a quick question........ I am aware that clamping on private land has now been outlawed, but what are the rules on signage? My local Homebase store has a large sign up in the car park stating that illegally parked vehicles will be clamped and a release fee will be charged. As clamping is now illegal I assume this is just a scare tactic and they will not clamp anyone, but is it legal? Thanks
  15. I have been given a ticket and appealed it on the basis that the signage isnt clear. The council say that its a market traders bay and active only on match days as it is near arsenal football ground. Before I went there the person I was seeing made the effort to get a valid temporary residents parking permit for the day which I correctly adjusted. I researched the day before to make sure that it wasn't a match day and the team were in fact playing away. I arrived on the day and read the sign very carefully and there was a bay with a number in it but on reading the sign which was between my s
  16. Hi All Hope I have uploaded this picture correctly. It's the first time I have tried this! I came across this sign earlier this week and just wondered what people though of it for clarity? Which part of the sign is your eye drawn to and which part could easily be missed? Kind regards R
  17. I was smoking on an outside/non enclosed section of the overground platform (something i didnt know about) and was approached by two transport officers. after two months I received a letter about court proceedings asking me to respond in 14 days notice. I responded about there being confusing or limited signs, the sign at the entrance was actually the no smoking circle and was placed the wrong way around (there was no text and I have a photo of this on the day) they’re doing renovations on the station and believe that they had removed the signs for some time. I since received a court s
  18. Just wanted to share some successes. I have had tickets for my own car on private property, been ticketed and ignored the letters, they stop very soon IF it is on private land. Please do follow the advice on this site and absolutely ignore every letter you receive, there is nothing these private companies can do to enforce the 'illegal' tickets. It has worked for me. My company's delivery van has been targeted by Glasgow City council for parking in a loading bay. We are off loading but they say we are exceeding the time limit. The signage does not have any time limit shown and more import
