About Me


  1. Hi, I set up in busniess 5 months ago, in a shopping centre which is privately owned. They have undeground loading bay and parking, the parking spaces are only for those who have it in their lease. I do not. I unload stock every morning, and after a while started to just leave my van there, no problems as it was out the way, and I found the security giards were just handing out the tickjets to anyone who did not have a business in there, no one used it really.. This changed in March when they brought in UKPC, I have since amassed 10+ tickets as I ave been leaving my van there, I have spo
  2. Ive recieved two seperate parking fines for two seperate occasions through the post from the above company demanding £85 up front for each (or £50 if paid within 14 days of issue)for overstaying in Morrisons car park in Grantham. on 23/01/13 issued on 12/02/13 and 30/01/13 issued on 19/02/13, is it legaly binding? is it legal to give the issue dates weeks in advance? im really confused as to what to do. Yes i did overstay i think, but im a student and i was in the library studying and lost track of time, but my overstaying on one occasion was 41 minutes and the second occassion 30 minutes.
  3. Hello Guys, I'm new here and any help would be greatly appreciated. Over the past 2 years i have received around 35 parking tickets from UKPC, the majority of which have been issued in my work place office car park. So far i have not replied and ignored any correspondence from UKPC and their debt collection agency. Previously they have been sending all 'debt' letters separately but in July 2018 the debt collection agency have issued me with a letter accumulating the full amount (£5000+) and stating 35 tickets have been issued and that if i don't reply by 08/08/18 they will info
  4. I've got two parking tickets in two days. I work in the railway and we have started working around the Wimbledon area. The first ticket was an honest mistake. Issued on Elsenham Street. We usually move our cars at 13:30 but I forgot and they pounced. The second was today from Merton Council. I had a good look around as I parked but for the life of me couldn't see any sign. I came back and there was the ticket. I then had an even better look for the sign and saw that it was a long way away, in the photo it's about four car lengths and was blocked by a lovely p
  5. Hi folks, I know there are a couple of threads on similar topics, but this one is specifically about Scotland where rules may be different. I received a letter from sheriff's court demanding payment for 20+ parking tickets (almost £2500) issued in early 2015. These were for on street parking in Dundee city centre where I was living at the time. I didn't get any ticket on my car at the time, nor any correspondence in the post either at the time or at any stage over the past 3 years. They all occur over a 3 month period (March - May 2015), and I was still resident in Dundee unt
  6. Hi All, I enquired about a ticket for an event in Amsterdam last year through a Danish company, they sent me an invoice for 445euros and I decided not to go. They phoned me and resent the invoice to which I replied that I would not be attending. They sent me an email stating that if I didn't pay they would be offering the ticket to someone else and I responded saying its fine I am not coming. Then a year later I get a letter from a UK debt collection agency - is it just me or is this as ridiculous as it sounds? I tried to speak to them on the phone but they are ridiculous
  7. hi, i was wondering if anyone could advise on the legal situation of a suspended chief constable still having his name on the bottom of NIP forms? Surely he is not able to do this if suspended? my thinking is that any form issued with his name and signature (not PP'd or on behalf of ) should be considered non enforcable. thanks and apologies if this hase been covered before.
  8. This might be a stupid question. I noticed transport companies like First Bus offer a discounted monthly fare for people who buy their ticket via a smartphone. The users then use their smartphone to show their ticket to the driver or place it on a reader. The question is, what happens if the phone stops working due to a fault, they can't get the ticket to show on the phones screen or the battery powers runs out ? You then can't use your ticket to get on a bus or if you are stopped by an inspector, you can't evidence having a ticket. Do people with these tickets stored on their

  10. Following the Manchester bombing earlier this year several concerts have been cancelled. The show I was due to attend this coming Friday 14th July however has had the venue changed. At tht time all of the tickets were cancelled and new tickets issue for the new show, with a pre-sale on Thursday 22nd July for people who originally purchased tickets. I repurchased my tickets through Eventim as that was my original retailer, however I am still waiting for my tickets to be delivered. Every other retailer (ticketmaster, gigs and tours, etc.) used an online e-ticket system, however eve
  11. Hi All. I wonder if anyone has encountered a similar situation. I booked some tickets for flights with Arik airlines on the 9th Feb. Arik have since suspended all flights from the UK since they are in financial trouble. After contacting travel trolley numerous times, I have been told that i cannot get a refund until they hear back from Arik airlines. So far, all their queries to Arik have gone unattended (so they say). I booked these tickets with a visa debit card. Where do i stand in terms of a refund? The thing about this all is that i need t
  12. Our car was clamped last week. The agent said we had 7 tickets and everything had been through court. We had NO IDEA of any of this. car still registered at our old address (we moved 3 years ago and post not forwarded after initial 3 months) so maybe this is all true. We paid £500 to have the car un-clamped and was told this covered ALL 7 actions. They promised to send through list of all tickets. But did not. I am complaining about this. My question is: I may well have 7 tickets (but from various jurisdictions - congestion charge,

  14. Hi Guys, Back in 2013 I was being harassed by both NCP and UKPC due to being the registered keeper of a vehicle that they were claiming had had several parking tickets issued against it (3 for each company, 6 in total). Being in Scotland I followed the advice that was applicable at the time and ignored them. The matter was passed between various debt collectors and I haven't heard anything since early 2014. I moved address last year and have had a royal mail redirection in place since then as I didn't want them gaining a default judgement in the event that they issued court pro
  15. I'm due to visit Glasgow in a few weeks time. As someone who lives in England, I'm not entitled to use my bus pass up there, which means having to buy bus tickets for travel. Anyway, I'm flying up. I've done some Googling and have a few questions: - Traveline have pointed me in the direction of First who have a selection of daily, weekly and monthly tickets. Do the weekly tickets start on Monday? Or can I arrive on the Thursday (as is the plan) and buy a weekly ticket? - Can I use my weekly ticket on the 500 service which takes me from the airport to the city centre (ish) ?
  16. I'm not entirely sure this is the correct sub-forum so apologies if this needs to be moved. Quite a simple question, but one I couldn't find an answer for. I bought a ticket for a convention this month. When I purchased the ticket in November 2015 the dates of the event were Thursday - Sunday - 4 full days. The cost of tickets had increased by 43% over last year, but because they were advertising an additional 1.5 days for the event (last year it started at 1pm on Friday), this seemed a reasonable increase. SEVEN months after ticket purchase and just two months before the event, the organ
  17. Just renewed my entitlement to this and it's worth doing if you only go to see one film. It only costs a couple of quid to take out a one day travel insurance policy for a UK trip through Compare the Market and this qualifies for 12 months of midweek 2 for 1 cinema tickets.
  18. I am shocked to find I received 2 speeding tickets this morning (16-02-16). 1) Dated 02-10-15 doing 36 mph in a 30 mile road 2) Dated 11-12-15 doing 35 mph in a 30 mile road. Since its 16 February 2016 the first ticket is over 4 months old. Obviously I have no recollection dating back that far. The "speeds" are so minor over the limit and I would welcome any advice on whether it it possible to challenge these tickets fairly. Amazingly the only memory I have of this particular road is being stuck in between lorries in traffic jams where a 10 min drive would take you up to
  19. went into Nottingham town today parked on the road paid the fee and walked into town. noticed a car had a ticket on the window thought that's a nice Christmas box for someone. when I came back saw he/she had another on the window so being nosy looked in the window to see if he had a parking ticket and they had but it had run out nearly 2 hours ago. so is this legal? and if so how how many tickets can you get in one session?
  20. Hi, From reading a few posts on here, I see that a) this is a serious situation b) this group seems entirely helpful without being too judgmental and c) what I have done is not without a reasonable amount of precedent , so hopefully there will be some help out there. The situation in short: My wife is on Maternity leave, and I used her rail ticket. It's a £14.50 return trip for the journey I was to make. I had the photo id with it and when about to board the train, showed the ticket and was asked to show accompanying photo card. I did (I, to my embarrass

Residents of the UK, France and Irish Republic can now apply for free tickets for the ceremony at Thiepval Memorial in France on 1 July 2016.

  24. My friend's mother and brother received two tickets on the same day for parking in his private car park. They were delivering items to help him move in. They parked on a single yellow line within the private car park, not in allocated spaces. The car park belongs to the residents including my friend. Rather than respond directly, the tickets have been dealt with by my fried who has written to them to say that they had his permission and were only making a delivery. They seem to treat this as appeals made by his mother and brother and keep writing back, each time with a more discou
  25. Hi everyone I was hoping someone could help as I have gotten myself into a conundrum. I received 2x parking tickets that were issued in October 2014 from the council where I live for £60 each. I ignored them and just forgot about them, a few letters were sent saying I owe them money for them but again, just ignored. Heard nothing for about 6 months, fast forward to now and I have a letter from Equita about the tickets for a total of £350. I can't afford to pay in full, and I've emailed the council to ask about the tickets as I've totally forgotten about them and don't even remember
