Hi everyone


Got a fine for not displaying a ticket in a private car park at a hospital. Have been ignoring all the letters from them so far but am starting to get scared and would like some lovely reassurance please! :)


These are the circumstances of my case


  • Visiting dad in hospital, bought ticket, left my 13 yr old daughter to put it in car and she stuck it on the windscreen the wrong way, ie. back of ticket facing out
  • Came back to find penalty notice on the car
  • Ignored this and then started receiving letters demanding payment etc
  • Ignored these and now they are threatening that the next letter will be a court summons
  • Starting to get a bit wobbly!

Do you think now is the time to start to get into correspondence with them using 1 of the template letters?

Should I produce the ticket or will this be evidence that I was driving?

Is it likely that they will have photographic evidence of me as the driver or the placement of the ticket?


I know you must get asked the same questions constantly, but I am starting to worry now and would really appreciate some advice and support.


Thanks for any that comes my way! ;)

Can you imagine the look on the judge's face if a private company issued a claim for eighty quid or whatever for somebody displaying their ticket 'the wrong way'?




Ignore everything.

Remember, it's NOT a fine. It's an unenforcible INVOICE !


You'll get a series of letters, each one more threatening...... IGNORE.

They will then pass it to the next desk to send you a "debt collection letter"...... IGNORE.

After that they may pass it back to the first desk to send you a "solicitor's" letter....... IGNORE.


At that point, they generally get fed up and chase an easier target.

The only thing you need to deal with is a court summons bearing a court seal........... and the chances of that are as remote as winning the jackpot on the Euromillions.

If the impossible happens and you do receive one, then let us know and you will get all the information you need to beat it and make the monkeys look stupid.
