Hi,

In June my daughter in law parked in our nearby town.

She collected a ticket from the machine, put it on her car and went shopping.

When she returned she had a Penalty Charge Notice attached to her windscreen. She was bemused as she still had 15 mins left on the ticket. She decided to take a photo of her parking ticket and the sign above where she parked.

She recieved a letter saying that she had parked in a 'Permit Holders Only' part of the road. However, she sent her pictures off to them explaining that in fact she was within the correct parking space.

She has now recieved a Nto saying that if she does not pay within 14 days they will forget the £25 discount and charge her full amount.

She has proof she was in the correct parking place. The only evidence they have is a sign they have photo for which could ahve been taken way down the road, as her car is not in the picture.

What can she do now????

This is strange as by the time the NTO is issued the discount is long gone.

 

Is this a LA issued ticket?

I receive an unwieldy number of private messages. I am happy to respond to messages posted on open forum but am unable to respond to private messages, seeking advice, when the substance of that message should properly be on the open forum.

Many thanks for your assistance and understanding on this.

Are you saying they only have one photo and that is of the sign, it would be a bit odd if they did? Request all photos taken at the time to see if they show the location.

I am writing for my daughter in law and got confused with which way around the letters arrived

It is a Parkwise ticket

What I am saying is that the only photo they have sent with the letter is just the sign................could be any sign, anywhere.

 

I will advise her to ask for ALL photos

 

Thank yo

Even if its not a wide angle a shot, a pic of the car with the PCN on may identify its location by whats in the background. I would try and post all pics including the drivers and the PCN so we can check them for possible errors.

Thank you....................

When they return their pics I will post all of them plus my daughter in laws.

Her pics clearly show the spot her car was in and there is no evidence of the sign they sent.

Whilst I don't doubt her honesty a less honest person could move the car after the PCN is issued and take photos of the car parked legally, so whilst they are helpful they are not a 100% proof so anything else would help.
