Hi,

 

 

I received a partking charge ticket on my car from UKPC for parking at the front of a friends flat,

 

 

the ticket states the ticket is issued for "parking in a permit area without displaying a valid permit".

 

 

it also shows that the issues time of the ticket was 13:54 and that the vehicle was first seen there at 13:47

- i don;t believe this is a reasonable amount of time to wait before issuing the ticket.

 

 

I was going to write to them to explain that i had just been visiting a resident of the building

 

 

but having read other threads on here i think i should just ignore this ticket but just wanted to double check, any advice is appreciated.

As this is in Scotland, there is no Protection of Freedoms Act (PoFA), therefore the parking company has no right to pursue the registered keeper.

 

In other words, don't write to them, don't phone them, just ignore them.

Correct. In England & Wales they now have a somewhat tenuous right to pursue the registered keeper if they decide to keep schtum about the identity of the driver, but the relevant piece of legislation doesn't apply North of the border.

 

Doesn't stop the parking companies from trying it on though.

Presuming that you've not told them who the driver was, and that Mystic Meg doesn't work for UKPC, you're quite safe to carry on ignoring them. There's not a damn thing that they can do to the vehicle keeper in Scotland, and they know it.

 

So, if they want to carry on bothering the Royal Mail to deliver waste paper, let them tongue.png

Please note that my posts are my opinion only and should not be taken as any kind of legal advice.
In fact, they're probably just waffling and can be quite safely and completely ignored as you wish.

debt collection agencies have no rights or powers whatsoever. You are safer ignoring them than anyone else in the world. Continue as you are and if they write again just remember, they are another desk in the parking company office and are wasting their time and money sending out pointless letters.
