  1. Hi all, I need some help. The defendant has been issued with a £100 'Parking Charge' by Parking Eye. The alleged offence occurred during the day time on a weekend, and was apparently brought to the attention of the plaintiff by ANPR cameras recording time-stamped photos with entry+exit times of the vehicle registered to the defendant. The plaintiff claims that the defendant spent just over 30 minutes in total at the car park. Answers to the FAQ thread are as follows: 1 Date of the infringement: Late January 2019. 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 5 days after the date of the alleged infringement 3 Date received 11 days after the date of the alleged infringement. 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, see above. 6 Have you appealed? {y/n?] post up your appeal] Defendant has not entered any correspondence with plaintiff or any 3rd party appeals company. Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up n/a 7 Who is the parking company? ParkingEye Limited 8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] Town Quay 2, Southampton For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. Letter mentions POPLA Many thanks for taking the time to read... My query is - should defendant appeal via POPLA, or contest the charge with ParkingEye? Some guidance would be greatly appreciated, based on the answer to above as well as potential defense points to the claim, I can write a draft letter for the defendant and post up here for critique before issuing.
  2. May i just add a very important factor on how WE all teach these unethical business a lesson that will make then sit up and take note… Business, in particular hotels such as Holiday Inn operate in a highly completive market place where even small adjustments to their statistics have significant rippled effects on their margins. So much so they employ technicians to monitor downward curves on online statics If WE collectively spent just 2 minutes posting a 1 star NEGATIVE GOOGLE review you will drive their ratings down faster then their CEO could say “get those ParkingEye systems torn down, its ruining our online reputation” Simply voice your disgust at their “unethical and immoral parking charge system”, preying on those of us who have been paying customers such as Lauren1994. Just 2 minutes, on Google and instantly reduce their ratings. EVERYONE looking at booking a hotel checks ratings right ! If you want to see this in action, see the start of a ripple effect at Holiday Inn Winchester whom since January 2020 started with 4.5 rating and then installed their new ParkingEye ARNP system. If you have more then 2 minutes then post across all their review systems to share with others your genuine experiences upon parking at their hotel, paying and then being charged days later and in your own words your thoughts on this. This excellent website has a high volume of viewers, inparticular this post, offering us the oppurtunity to voice in volume - so don’t forget to donate to this excellent website as well
  3. Hi, i need some advise please. I too received a letter from PE with regards to parking on the Town Quay in October 2019. I didn’t really understand their payment system - do I pay before or after - so I asked someone who worked there, they said I could pay either way. So, I paid when I got back, entered my vehicle number - which didn’t say how long I had been there - the payment layout was difficult to understand, I think I had underpaid by £2, I paid £6.50. What do I do? I can’t afford the £60, do I write to them, do I write to them with a cheque with the outstanding £2. I don’t want to leave this as it’s affecting my mental health and stress, already had a sleepless night thinking about it. thank you for reading this
  4. I recently received a pcn for using the bus lane on Southampton Row on my motorcycle during operating hours. I have since then informally challenged the contravention, but the pcn was not cancelled. My grounds for appeal are: the alleged contravention did not occur due to the signs and road marking being incorrect. I have attached a pdf with the Enforcement Notice, CCTV images, my route, google street view image and images taken by me a few days later. [ATTACH=CONFIG]60559[/ATTACH] After visiting the site where it happened I found the following: 1-The white information sign (962) on Bloomsbury Place (where I was turning from) was not facing oncoming traffic so had no indication of there being a bus lane (page 6). 2- When stopped at the traffic lights again no indication of the bus lane being there. All I could see was a box junction followed by a pedestrian crossing (page 7). There was traffic as well. 3- As I turned right I moved into the left lane as I was planning to turn left just ahead. there were no angled dashed lines at the start of the lane after there was a large break in a bus lane due to the box junction (please see page 8) 4- there was no 'BUS LANE' markings on the road surface where the bus lane restarted after the box junction (page 8). 5- the hours of operation sign (961) which is situated there was turned at an angle again not facing oncoming traffic (page 8). Hope to get some helpful advice on to how to word the representations. Thank you for your help in advance!
  5. Hello I recently received a PCN for using the bus lane on Southampton Row on my motorcycle during operating hours. I have since then challenged the contravention, but the pcn was not cancelled.

I've attached pdfs of my challenge and also the response from Camden council. Pictures taken by me and google streeview are in the challenge pdf and images of the CCTV camera attached to the pdf correspondence from the council. Would appreciate advice into whether to proceed. What would be the next step? Thank you in advance
  6. Dear Caggers, I have just won a case brought against me by the DVLA. I told them I would win 9 months ago, but those twerps do not listen! I found this site helpful in some ways when researching for my case but there was nothing exactly clear on my circumstances. So now I know I have won I would like to publish the details of the case to be of assistance to others and before going ahead would like some tips from regular users here on how to best do that. The case involved a car that was SORN, in a parking bay on a street opposite my house. It was clamped for being on the road. The dispute that followed was wether the car was on a 'public road' or not. The DVLA do not like the rather restrictive definition of 'Public Road' in Section 62(1) of VERA 1994, and prefer to use the definition from Section 192 of the Road Traffic Act 1988. This is where they thought they were being clever but actually have messed up. In the process the DVLA lied to me (all in evidence I can show), to the local county council and effectively to my MP. The DVLA prosecutor also got a member of staff from the local council to make a statement that was untrue. All the while charging me £21 per day 'storage fees' for my impounded car since September 2014. They also tried to withhold documents I had requested under Data Protection and Freedom of Information Act (also to avoid my having them before Court) and only supplied them after the Information Commissioners Office wrote to tell them they had breached the Data Protection Act I won the case, because EVERYONE at the DVLA, NSL (the clampers), Havant Council, Hampshire County Council, etc was pretending the law did not apply. Luckily the Court decided the law did apply and they were ALL wrong. This means that in potentially thousands of cases the DVLA and local councils are getting people to settle out of court for offences they have not actually committed. In the process I may have tested an important piece of Law, which is the House of Lords ruling in Clarke Vs Kato which is legally binding on all lower courts. This makes it clear that a car parking space, in particular a car park/parking area CANNOT also be a road. In my case there was no hesitation by the Court in agreeing it applied and nullified the DVLA's claim. In addition they agreed that the parking was associated with a Dwelling under Schedule 2A of VERA and therefore the clamping was unlawful. What I have is the following: Paperwork issued alleging the offence My 'Step 1' first appeal/complaint letter - explaining the law that applied & DVLA reply My 'Step 2' second appeal/complaint letter - explaining the law that applied & DVLA reply My 'Step 3' second appeal/complaint letter to CEOs office - and reply My Subject Access Request letter and documents (including the LOCS case management files) My Freedom of Information Act letter and documents (including DVLA policy and staff training) All the paperwork issued in relation to the threat of court action. My 26 page 'skeleton argument' that comprehensively explored the relevant law and Won the case. Dozens of Exhibits, including dictionary definitions, photos, extracts of law, DVLA internal training documents and letters. My own documents and SAR material may prove helpful in providing an example of how to approach writing to the DVLA and other Government agencies. (I also took the UKBA/Home Office to the Ombudsman and won some years ago, using similar approach). The Freedom of Information documents I intend to put into the Public Domain. These include: Written Policy to not discuss the definition of 'Road' with the public (that's why you can never get a straight answer!) DVLA's own 'definition of a road' (which is not exactly correct!) Letters to NSL explaining clamping policy with FAQs NSL clampers handbook explaining when they can/cannot clamp Now I am taking the matter up with the Department for Transport's Independent Complaints Assessor and I shall also be presenting a complaint with the Parliamentary Ombudsman for Maladministration. I may even create a little website to host the documents with explanatory notes. Your comments and suggestions are very welcome. It will take me some time to organise it all, but feel free to ask details about what I have.
  7. As many others I've also fallen foul to this mo'fo!
