The car park for the Maternity Section at the Southern General Hospital in Glasgow

was full on the 20th April this year when my daughter went to give birth.



Part of the car park was closed for maintenance work

and the workmen pointed us to an area where other cars were parked on a side road within the hospital.


When we returned there was a notice on my windscreen from CPPlus

notifying me of a £40 Unauthorized Parking Notice reduced to £20 for immediate payment

stating I was not parked in a designated parking space.



All the cars parked in this area also had similar notices.

Another driver who was there advised me not to pay and to ignore any follow up.


I then received a letter dated 4th June 2015 from PCS Parking Collection Services

advising that they had obtained my details as the registered keeper/owner of the vehicle

and stating that full payment must be made within 28 days to avoid further action.

As originally advised on the 20th April in the car park I continued to ignore this letter.


I have now however received a follow up letter dated 3rd July 2015 from DRP Debt Recovery Plus Ltd

demanding payment for the unpaid parking charge of £40 for their client otherwise

they will recommend their client that court action should be taken.


I'd appreciate any advice on what action I should now take.

There is no keeper liability in Scotland.


Only the driver could be held liable for the charge, and they do not know who that is unless you tell them...

DR+ can recommend anything they like

but since there is no keeper liability in Scotland

neither they or anyone else can do anything.



If CP Plus are indeed stupid enough to spend more money on a lost cause then your response will be simple,

you were not the driver at the time and CP Plus have lied to the DVLA to get your details

as they know that there is no lawful reason for them to do so.

and its not a fine!




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...

However, what should I do if they do indeed start court action?


That would be the first cold day in Hell !!!

Your in Scotland. ........... Different Laws. ............. You are safe to ignore.


If you were in England or Whales.

That's a whole different "Ball game".


You then need advice from here and you don't ignore !!!!!!!!!!!


At the moment your "safe". No contact at all.

They will send you a bunch of letters.

Do nothing. :-D
