On the 26th May,

I parked in a disabled bay with a blue badge clearly on show,

 

 

however it was only after I received a parking notice that I was made aware that the badge had expired.

 

 

(The car park is free to park anywhere)

 

I appealed and told the company of this mistake, who said if I could prove I now have a valid badge, they will waiver the fine.

 

However, I was waiting for a re-assessment, which took longer than the initial period.

 

I have since been assessed and got my new badge, a copy of which I sent to them.

 

They then reduced the fine to £15, and assured me, when I pay that they will make a 10% donation to a disabled charity (?!?!).

 

Quite honestly, found that laughable and disrespectful, so ignored it, to which I have now received (8th November) the letter from Debt Recovery Plus, who demand £160, or will advise that court action be taken.

 

Is there anything they can do?

Hi Tom and welcome to CAG.

 

My advise, as it has reached DR+ is to carry ignoring. Others may suggest a simple one liner, explaining there is no debt and you owe nothing.

 

Do NOT ignore proper Court stamped papers. Slim chance of you receiving them, but you would almost certainly be able to defend, as they have no powers whatsoever to do with your BB.

Hi,

 

Thanks I thought that would be the case.

 

I am tempted to reply with something along those lines, and that it is as if I am being discriminated against, I obviously wouldn't have parked in that spot in a free car park unless I had reason to !

 

Wait for more threatening letters now then I guess....

Keep the letters as they prove that the demand is not related to any costs they have incurred.

 

 

Dont waste a stamp on writing to DR+, they are rentathreats and cant do anything other than huff and puff

in an attempt to get you to give them money they have no rights to claim.

 

 

Where do you think the £160 goes to,

the landowner?

the parking co?

 

 

their christmas fund?

1. IT IS NOT A FINE - nowhere does any sign or letter say that - its a speculative invoice.

 

 

2. disabled badges MEAN NOTHING on private land.

 

 

3. disabled 'bays' or any bay/road markings ARE PURELY GRAFFITTI on private land.

 

 

as advised

you have gotten to the DR+ DCA stage

now simply ignore them.

 

 

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...
