Hi,

This is my first time

 

getting Fines of £100 from PCN by ParkdirectUK and i need help.

 

We were travelling to a new location and was looking for a parking area and did not realised that we were not suppose to use thatarea.

 

We missed the sign.

 

We did not stopped in that area.

 

 

As soon as we realised that we were at the wrong area,

 

we moved from that area without stopping.

 

And our picture was taken of the car with brake lights on and moving

 

.What are our rights?

Thank you.

Hi and welcome to CAG

 

Others will give you better advice than me but you should appeal this. Park Direct will reject your appeal but then you can go to POPLA with another appeal. This costs them , not you.

 

This is not a fine. It is an invoice which is unenforceable. I would advise you NOT to pay them anything

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

spoof speculative invoice.

 

dx

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Hi tks for the reassurance.

 

It helped me to make an appeal now.

 

Although we were at a restricted area as we were new to that area and missed the sign,

 

we did not parked or stopped.

 

Our vehicle was only used in that restricted area for reversing our car as sson as we realised our mistake

and we saw a attendant taking a picture of our car

and now we have a got a payment to make.

 

Really shocked but reassured now.

Yes, i just used Google Earth and seen the small sign outside for no stopping or waiting at any time now.We missed the sign at that time as were lost.So, we did went in and reverse,so we did used their area.We were in there for only 2 mins to reverse our car.I guess we are in the wrong after seeing the sign board.But we did not stopped or wait. Thats the only argument i have.

You could have absolutely no argument and still not have to pay this. If it was a council ticket, that is one thing but this ticket is an invoice pure and simple. You don't have to pay one single penny.

 

make sure you appeal this and take it to POPLA when you get rejected.

The incident happened on the 27th December 2013 and the notice served date on the letter is 2nd January 2014 and we received it today.The 14 days period,is it from the notice served date?

How does the letter address you, as the registed keeper of the vehicle or does it say driver? If the former does it ask you to forward the demand on to the driver or make the name and adress available to the parking co? If not then they have made an error that would render the demand unenforceable to start with.

Write to them and just appeal saying the vehicled was never parked in that area and leave it as simple as that. Parking has a legal definition/description. they may very well reject your appeal but will have to give you a POPLA reference code. You can then appeal to POPLA and that will cost them money. You can then make your arguments properly, it is not worth wasting time with the parking co, they dont want to listen as they justwant your money.
