I was interested to read on the Parking Pranksters website that POPLA has decided that addresses outside England and Wales are acceptable as serviceable under the Protection of Freedoms act.

 

I fear this may upset the BPA and the PPC's who have always stated that serviceable addresses for the vehicle driver must be in the area covered by POFA.

 

One wonders if a new can of worms has just exploded as I do recall posting some time ago during the introduction of POFA mentioning the number of people who travel from Outer Mongolia borrow a car and shop at Lidl's.

There is no provision in the POFA for the drivers address to be within the UK.

 

I have one at POPLA at the moment where the drivers address is in Canada.

It's on Pepi-poo, Excel-driver in Canada. Same username as here..

I agree that there never has been provision, however the BPA and their members have tried to state otherwise since the introduction of POFA in England and Wales. The example on the Pranksters website quotes the company as stating that an Australian address is not serviceable and initially refusing to provide a POPLA code, which is just another example of these companies quoting things as they would like them to be and not the way it is.

 

I wonder what these companies will actually do having paid the fee if an appeal to POPLA fails . Could for example Debt Recovery Plus become Debt Recovery Plus International. (Begging letters now available in Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese and Arabic )

 

Just a thought !

The PoFA allows the parking co to chase the keeper if the driver does not have a serviceable address. I bet the parking co's think this means in the UK but it doesnt, any EU country is a serviceable address and some others by bilateral agreement so beware if you live in NZ, you might just get a letter.
