Driver fined £18,500 for ignoring daily parking tickets outside her home for a YEAR

 

Carly Mackie, 26, ignored fines for parking in front of her family garage in Dundee almost every day, claiming it's her right to park in front of her own property

 

 

 

A driver from Dundee has been fined a whopping £18,500 after throwing away parking tickets on her car for over a year.

 

Carly Mackie, 26, ignored fines for parking in front of her family garage almost every day, claiming it's her right to park in front of her own property.

 

She was handed a formal letter by the Vehicle Control Services Limited demanding she cough up the £18,500 to cover the cost of all of the tickets she has not paid.

 

Carly, who lives with her parents, has been parking her Mini on cobbles in front of her garage in Dundee for more than a year.

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...

She shouldn't have ignored. This kind of money will make it worth their wile to go after it.

 

If those are pictures of the real tickets then they are misleading as per Parking Eye and also they are contrary to the BPA code - except that VCS is now IPC

18.5k over a year and they havent done court action? Even to the uninformed, VCS should have tried court by now if they thought they could get that money.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

The fine is so high because the company incurred costs obtaining Carly's details to pursue the numerous outstanding notices.

It costs £3.50 to get details from the DVLA so multiply that by 365 it equals £182, so where is the other £18,318 come from.

I can't see this being won in court.

 

 

And I agree with the 'yellow stickers' comment, she should take these as part of her defence, copied to make it look like official notices.

Absolute rubbish, they would only have had to do it the once, so agree, how are they justifying the rest of the claim.

 

Interesting that they haven't taken legal action already !

They have to apply to the DVLA for keeper details for every individual ticket they issue via their kadoe agreement, and it costs them £2.50 a pop...

 

The car can change RK at anytime...
