This company are well known on here and can safely be ignored.They will never take you to court and they won't clamp your car. For your credit history to be damaged the case would have to go to court ( very unlikely) you lose ( very, very unlikely) and then you refuse to pay whatever the judge orders within 28 days. This is such a remote possibility that it's not worth worrying about. All those letters from "solicitors" and "debt collectors" are just hollow threats designed to frighten you into paying something which you don't have to pay.

If you have admitted in your appeal that you were the driver then it could cause issues but I think it's still unlikely they would bother.

 

Luton airport are well known for sending drivers these bills for people getting out at the traffic lights.

 

Why not give the consumer clinic a call on BBC 3 Counties Radio, they are in Luton and have delt with Luton airport doing this before and normally results in Luton backing down.

 

The publicity is needed to stop them sending these fake' fines' to people getting out at the traffic lights.

 

BBC 3 counties radio number is: 08459 455 555, call between 9am and 12pm

Ash.

Just ignore it. They can't clamp or tow your car.Airports are getting notorious for parking charges now. Cardiff Airport now charge you £2 just to stop for 30 seconds in front of the departures terminal and drop someone off. Bunch of moneygrabbing b******s.

I been to Citizen Advise Bureau last week and the gentleman told me I left it too late I should have appealed it i have no choice now must pay and all that I have to say.

i was surprise he saying that he seems he did not know much about private parking ticket as he said if i did appealed and they reject i had a second chance to take my case to nonindependent something called, and i said no private companies issue ticket do not give u that option only council give that chance, after told him i did appealed and get rejection letter from them he made me an appointment on 06/02/2012 to write to the APCOA saying ticket is wrongly issued and all that I was happy with that.

 

Now after coming to this Haven Place after reading others history and comment saying do not write to them just ignore by writing to them it makes it worse for myself, Should I go to the appointment and write letter to APCOA or no.

I'm not being funny but there is no way any legislation would allow you to 'drop off or pick up anywhere'. If it did, then you would be able to do so on zig zag markings, red routes, clearway/restricted bus stops etc etc etc. and obviously you can't in these examples. As far as I know, as a PH/mini cab driver (not hackney carriage/black cab), you have the same entitlement as a car driver unless there are specific exemptions at a particular location. Having said that unless the PPC are being supported by a airport by law (similar to a railway station by law), then you could probably ignore it.

If it is a Metropolitan act that suggests it would be limited to within London only. A quick look at, for instance, the Rad Route info says that you may not stop anywhere: http://www.tfl.gov.uk/roadusers/redroutes/19686.aspx

 

 

Even if the law that was passed in 1869 allowed you to stop anywhere, other laws have been passed since that time that modify that right - in the same way that the law that states taxis within London have to carry a bale of hay also has been changed.
