I was recently issued with a "PCN" by a 3rd party parking firm responsible for managing the car park at my local train station for not correctly displaying a ticket.

 

The penalty is £50 if paid within 14 days, increasing to £100 thereafter.

 

In my view, this is clearly an intimidatory tactic designed to panic recipients into paying up without question.

 

Despite being able to produce a valid ticket, the firm's appeal process takes no account of this and therefore discriminates against well-intentioned users of the car park who,

unlike deliberate avoiders of the parking ticket fee, have paid the required fee and are still hit with an extortionate penalty.

 

Having asked the parking firm to justify the level of the penalty in relation to any loss incurred (ie. none), the response was the standard "breach of byelaw 14".

 

My other point of contention relates to the fact that I purchased the ticket from a rail ticket machine (rather than a dedicated car parking ticket machine)

by the station ticket office prior to entering the car park.

 

There are no signs by this machine explaining the terms and conditions of car park use, therefore the ticket / contract was purchased without a clear explanation of the t&c's.

 

The t&c's are only displayed by the ticket machine in the car park itself but the information board is not lit and therefore not clearly visible at the time of purchase (0625).

 

As for the threat of "debt collection agency", presumably any disputed 'debt' cannot be established unless determined via the courts.

 

I would be interested to know if these would be considered as valid arguments in this matter

read the paperwork CAREFULLY

 

it is NOT a penalty and [should] not mention that word anywhere.

 

as for 'byelaw XXX'

 

the only people that can enforce that are the RAILWAY COMPANY not some tin-pot PPC.

 

safe to ignore them.

The company is MET Parking Services, operating on behalf of Chiltern Railways.

My mistake, this is a Parking Charge Notice rather than a penalty

Thanks. My mistake re terminology, this is a Parking Charge notice rather than a penalty notice.

byelaw 14 says that you must pay the appropriate fee in accordance to the terms at the time of issue. You can read this in several ways but the important part is paying the prescribed fee, which you have. Did you tell the company that you have paid the fee? Your posting seems to indicate that you have so the rest of what they say is waffle. If it was a council they would lose the appeal so I wouldnt fret too much about what happens next.
