Hi, I Have unfortunately been issued with a 'Charge Certificate' due to excess time parked (first 1.5 hours free) at Lidl in Dundee from Athena ANPR based in Uxbridge.

 

Usual stuff from what I have read, £90.00 fine. £45.00 if paid within 14 days, photographs of me driving the car in and out at alleged times

 

As this has happened in Scotland, is the 'the ignore and get on with your life' still advised as there are different legal systems in place North of the Border

 

regards

Nope, the fine is still unenforceable and you should ignore everything.

The photographs they took do not clearly identify the driver so I geuss if push came to shove and they did take it to court, they would have to identify the driver (which I believe I am not required to disclose to them)

 

So should I just ignore all correspondance even registered post?

Seems reasonable.

 

The only thing you shouldn't ignore are court papers. That said there's a miniscule chance of them taking you to court. Some companies like to issue "draft" court papers in an attempt to intimidate. A quick call to HM Court Service will tell you if they're real or not. However let me stress this is extremely unlikely.

Court papers - to be valid they will need a have a claim number and a court seal.

 

Some PPC's have sent out 'fake' court papers to scare you into paying. If this happens then report it to the court concerned

 

The best course of action is that already noted and that is to ignore everything except properly served court papers. The pieces of paper will get scarier with ever increasing amounts and purport to come from Debt Collectors and Solicitors but these are in reality the PPC in disguise

 

The chances of court are slim indeed as they do not have a case

 

Ignore
