I have had a parking ticket from Met parking £100 or £50 if i pay up with no fuss or else!:mad: But the thing is, that i just can't chew that down, not with a Mcdonalds too. Which is the place of the so called offence! :rolleyes:

 

It all started when i was due to meet friends for lunch at McD's Billingsgate by the way. 1 of my friends had broken down but was on route so it turned out that i had stayed longer than the alotted time of 1hour by 15mins.

 

I wrote as instructed to the MPS to give a satisfactory reason for the oversite.:-) But to my astonishment, alas i was tipped B******* & the anty was raises to £125.:eek: So i wrote again to see if my letter had been misunderstood?!?:confused: To this my reply was NO B******* now its £150 & i think the sharks are coming around again for another bite!!!:mad:

 

How is this possible to charge a parking fine for eating at the resturant the car park belongs to??? What can i do now? Do i say B******* & lets go to court?

you would need to show us the text of your letters to them and of their letter to you before you can get considered advice that addresses the details.

until then stop writing to them !

This place uses a number plate recognician system. Photographs every thing on entry then on exit and they work out who's offending the time limit, then they send them with pics of u leaving with time & date stamp. Didn't even now about it til 2 months later!!!

Absolutely nothing.

 

It's a [problem].

 

• don't pay

• don't contact them again

ignore any letters you receive, no matter how threatening

• they will go away after 5/6 letters

• they will not take you to court

• they don't have a legal leg to stand on

 

The letters you receive will be full of lies to try and get you to cave in and pay up e.g. threat of CCJs, courts costs and statements of liability. It's all a load of rubbish.

 

Met Parking are well known here.

 

The law does not allow private companies to impose financial penalties for alleged breach of contract. They know that and do not want to go to court because they'll lose. So they try and frighten people into coughing up with scary letters.

 

Their whole [problem] rests on the basis of a sign saying "if you do x, or don't do x, you agree to pay £75". The law does not work like that.
