I parked on double yellow lines with a disabled blue badge in the car park of St james hospital leeds. I have parked in the same spot about 30 times before and never got a ticket, until today.

 

On previous occasions security have ok'd it for me to park in the particulr spot as disabled bays are hard to find, however i am told for the last few months the security guards in questions have been made redundant and the traffic flow in the car park including parking restrictions is now over seen by a nhs hospital ticket warden. Whilst there has always been signs saying to park in marked bays and disabled people must park in disabled bays i have always been told i could park by the previously employed security guards

 

I have read a lot on here which basically says ignore the ticket/fine. I was silly enough to appeal as i was outraged at the ticket given my previous authority to park there, I have also seen others use the space on the double yellows. The appeals number asked me who was driving, I refused to say whom but they have my address now and my name.

 

They said if my appeal fails which i expect it to do, they use newlyns debt collection.

 

The fine is £60 reduced to £40 if i pay within 14 days

 

My question is , will Newlyns take me to court if i tell them to clear off,.

Can someone point me out with a drafted letter advising them to !!!!!! off,

Also main question is , how come people say on forums ,that these type of parking companies wont take you to court,

My reasoning is because If i owed any other type of business money for example if i did not pay for goods, then would they not call in baliffs for that amount, so what makes this parking ticket any different should i ignore it,

 

Sorry to be a pain but i have just had 4 months off work with stress and I do not know whethe

 

r to pay for it to go away as I cant be doing with threatening letters which will no doubt come if i ignore it

 

this is the notice

Hello there. As above, Newlyn are well known here and have no legal powers as I understand it. There are plenty of other, probably derogatory, posts about them on the forum.

 

Hang on to your money.

Thankyou for your swift reply. when i get the drivvel through the post, do i write a letter in response, or do i ignore them all.

I find it weird that the hospital doesnt use a parking company, they issue their own tickets

 

Hello again. I suspect the advice will be ignore, but I'll let the guys tell you.

 

When you get the letter, it may be cleverly worded to make you panic. Come back here and tell us what it says and people will talk you through it. Don't send money without checking it here, it's highly unlikely you need to pay anything.

Any communication with them will be seen as a sign of weakness and only make them target you more. Totally ignoring them is the best way to go (until they are brave enough, or should that be stupid enough, to actually submit a real court claim against you)

I appealed the ticket and did not hear anything, so i rung the parking office up at the hospital, they told me they had posted the answer out to me regarding the appeal, they refused to discuss on the phone

 

Turns out they sent it to number 14, i live at 17, I gave them my correct address. I told them they had sent it to the wrong address, and they asked me again for the correct address to re send the appeal letter too

 

I refused to give them it as i explained they should of wrote it down correctly to begin with, i also said they shuld get it from dvla. The lady on the phone asked me why i had attitude and said if i do not co-operate i will come off worse should newlyns get involved. I said i took that as then my appeal has been rejected ,she said i did not say that

 

Anyway, if they have sent correspondance to the wrong address how would that stand up in court. Theyre adament they take non payers through as they put it the legal process

So now they will get my info from the dvla

 

What should i expect from Newlyns and do they normally take people to court for this kind of matter. I am told that the NHS take people to court

Post 12: Ignore ignore ignore ignore

 

Then you say "I appealed the ticket and did not hear anything, so i rung the parking office up at the hospital"

 

I can understand that you are concerned, but seriously - why ask for advice if you're going to disregard it and do the exact opposite?

 

You want to know if they will take you to court? No they won't. The best thing to do is ignore them.

If Op has contacted them, they have partly engineered their future extra junk mail imho, Ignoring them makes them go away more quickly as the fish as not taken the bait

We could do with some help from you.
