Note the 'if successful' - There is a paper going through parliament, which will restrict these cowboys.


Carry on ignoring them - let them keep wasting time and money on keep sending.

In cases like this, providing the recipient of the FPN does NOT make contact with the issuer of the FPN thereby not divulging ANY details (which would only serve to confirm the recipient's identity) then no legal 'contract' exists between the issuer and the recipient of the FPN.


The issuer of the FPN, in this case, cannot assume the recipient of the FPN is 'guilty' of the cause which led to the issuing of the FPN therefore, the issuer has no legal redress.


Ignore all correspondance from such operators. Their intention is to scare you into handing money over to them. They have no powers whatsoever. Once they realise you are not going to buckle at the knees they will stop harassing you and move their attentions to easier targets - those who reply and therefore, those who are more likely to crumble under their bullying tactics.


(Keep ALL correspondance for future reference).


If, and I mean 'IF' they actually 'DO' take out a court summons then still DO NOT respond to these operators but you MUST respond to the court though. ONLY THE COURT has the power to actually 'force' you to pay any monies owed to another person or organisation and only under extreme cases.


Firstly, technically, you did not 'park' you vehicle while in the process of obtaining a ticket. It can be argued that while leaving your car while obtaining a ticket, you had not actually 'parked'. Only once you had fixed your ticket to the vehicle and walked away from it can it be said to be 'parked'.


By the same token, you may as well have pulled up alongside the ticket machine, got out of your car to buy a ticket and at that point received a FPN - even with the engine turned off and the doors locked, this in itself does not constitute 'parking'. Needless to say, it would be unscrupulus of anyone attaching a FPN onto a car in this circumstance.


Leaving your car in a 'mother and baby' zone while obtaining a ticket should not necessarily imply an intention to 'park' the vehicle in that zone. Often, 'mother and baby' zones are closer to ticket machines and it is this reason why the car was not left further away (while also not clogging up the roads). The intention then being to move the car to a more suitable parking bay.


Also, there is a possibility that a single driver has entered a car park intending to pick up a mother and baby (who may have been dropped off there earlier for example) however, occupying a 'mother and baby' zone while waiting for the mother and child to leave the store would not contravene the parking rules especially as a ticket had been obtained.
