Hi I droped my grilfriend off at the bus station a few days ago and found I had a parking ticket issued by UK CPS Ltd for £75.

 

I was parked somewhere in leeds and I litterally jumped out for 5mins maximum, the B must have been waiting in his car! I didnt even see the ticket till half way down the road otherwise I would have looked for him!

 

I have spent the past couple of hours looking through these forums and im a bit bamboozelled.

 

 

From what I've read so far should I just ignore all their letters and not contact them even though I was probably in the wrong for parking there or should I just pay and save the hassle?.

 

Any Help would be much appreciated..........

The majority of people on this forum have had no problem from just ignoring the tickets.

 

They are NOT "fines" as private companies have no right to fine anyone.

 

Court papers are extremely rare. See the recent case where Excel failed to turn up.

 

No doubt peternet(UKCPS employee) will be along to tell you to "appeal" - ignore him also - there is no "appeals proceedure".

Im just a bit worried as I was in the wrong

 

Why do you think you were 'in the wrong'? If they wanted £1000 would you just shrug your shoulders because you think it's your fault?

 

Treat these parasites with the contempt they deserve:

 

• do not pay

• do not contact them

ignore any letters you receive

• they will give up an go away after 4 or 5

 

It's also pretty difficult to consider and accept the terms of any alleged contract from your car. Sounds to me like you parked up, went to read the sign, declined to accept the contract and left the premises.

maybe changes are coming! maybe

 

Gangbos become the latest measure for fighting antisocial behaviour | UK news | The Guardian

 

 

The crime and security bill also proposed licensing private wheelclamping companies. A statutory code of conduct will place a cap on fines, prevent cars being towed too soon after being clamped and an independent appeals process for motorists who feel they have been unfairly clamped or fined.

in their dreams they will take action and then send baliff's

 

YOU MUST DO THE FOLLOWING WITHOUT FAIL

 

1) IGNORE

2) IGNORE SOME MORE

3) GO TO 1

 

now you have done that, if you must send £10 a month send it your local PDSA or a deserving cause of your choice

no ignore its a [problem].

 

do some reading in this forum

dx

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Hi Everybody

 

Just been done by UKCPS for parking over heavily fading lines in a retail car park on Leeds Rd in Hudds.

I was in Next for 5 mins, I left at 12:27 yet the ticket says 12:34.

So I walked around the car park taking photos of other vehicles 'over the line' and I'm thinking WTF,

no consistency here.

 

As I walked around looking for him I spoke to a couple of employees having a cig from 1 of the shops and they said just ignore it, but I wanted to see the photos. They advised me that he does another car park so I drove there but in my mind I thought I bet he's gonna come back, he did.

(at this point he's in his van, didn't wanna get out for some reason)

I asked him for pics, he showed me faded lines.

I told him the time is wrong as I was in my car at 12:34.

I asked him " why are you victimising me?" "other cars in front of you are over the lines, you haven't done them."

Then he says "I would get out but I feel threatened" ( I'm assuming he's got his phone on REC.)

Anyway I drove off leaving all the bad thoughts in my head and not on his face.

 

Big thanks to this forum and especially the replies from KIPTOWER on various other posts.

My new favourite word is now IGNORE.

I've been issued with a ticket from UK CPS Ltd today while parked on the Elk Mill Retail Park at Oldham. Having a disability and with all the disabled parking spaces taken I parked my car in front of JD Sports on a yellow box at the side of Next and popped my disabled badge on display.

As it's a retail park I assumed that parking wasn't considered under the same restrictions as parking on the roads etc.

 

I found to my horror that the charge is £100 ! with a reduction to £60 if paid within 14 days.

 

Do I have to pay this by law, and if I don't pay it will I end up with a county court judgement against my name ?

What really annoys me is that we spend money in the shops on that retail park and yet end up being fined !! I've also realised looking at the 'reasons for issue' on the ticket that people can be fined for parking "out of a marked bay" (what the hell does that mean ?).

In their dreams.

NO

IT means it is a way of trying to fool people into paying money. It is not a fine it is more akin to a begging lettre, ignore it and all the other rubbish they will send you.
