I recently got a parking eye ticket for overstaying at an aldi car park.


I was there for 2 hours 15 mins and the time limit was 1 hour 30 mins.


In the pictures my licence plate was not visible on one of the pics due to glare.


I emailed them sand told them I would not be paying said charge

but if they had further picture evidence I would be happy to pay £0 due to the financial losses suffered due to this apparent overstay.

I did not state I was the driver.

I told them not to contact me again unless they were sending me a popla appeals reference number,


They have now sent me two follow up letters.

One saying I need to provide evidence I was in Aldi. I don't know what this has to do with anything.


But they have also sent another letter stating they are entitled to take enforcement action against me if I do not pay

and that under schedule 4 of the protection of freedoms act 2012 that the driver is required to pay this fine.


They say they have the right to recover this charge under paragraph 9 of this protection of freedoms act,

they have kindly put it on hold for 14 days while I provide further evidence.



I know people say its best to just ignore them, I wish I had now.


But what do people think my next course of action should be.


I have no intention of paying them but i have not heard of anyone recieving a letter of this kind before .


thanks in advance

You haven't damaged your position at all by sending the letters you did.


Ignore - is not necessarliy the best advice.


Don't worry now. You've done your bit.

Now is the time to ignore

This happened to me and I ignored letters. After 3 of them they gave up. I agree that your contact to date is fine but forget it now.
