    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

I parked my car on 27th May at 20:28 Purchased a parking ticket and displayed it on my dashboard. Returned to the car at 21:55 to find a PCN stick on my windscreen.

 

The Notice state the following ‘ Enforcement officer XXXX had reason to believe that the following contravention had occurred and that a penalty charge is now payable:

Contravention: Code: 83

Parked in a car park without clearly displaying a valid pay & display ticket or voucher or parking clock.

Time of contravention: 20:39

 

On further checking, I noticed the ticket had been blew off the dashboard and on the driver’s seat!

 

I do have the original ticket. And have not appealed or done anything yet.

 

Would be grateful for your views & informed advice, please.

 

Thanks in advance

Hello there.

 

Is this a penalty charge notice from the local authority please? If so, we'll need to move you to the local authority parking forum.

Yeah, exactly that. Keep the original ticket, but copy both sides for the council and clearly explain what happened. They might give you a discretionary cancel.

was the ticket readable on the seat or was it face down? If readable there is a bit more of an argument about no contravention as tickets blown off dash landing face down has been decided at the parking tribunal. Councils vary in how they approach this though so a bit of luck involved in the outcome of your appeal.

  • 3 weeks later...

I contacted Northamptonshire County Council with the document as advised by the various experienced member here.

 

 

After 3 weeks, I have today received their reply:

 

"After carefully considering your challenge,

I am pleased to inform you that on this occassion the notice has been withdrawn as a gesture of goodwill

 

 

but should remind you that it is the drivers responsibility to ensure that a valid pay and display ticket is clearly displayed at all times."

 

So, finally a bit of humane goodwill and a successful challenge !!

 

Many thanks to everybody here..

I do have the original ticket. And have not appealed or done anything yet.

 

It happened to me once, wafted onto the floor, I appealed & wrote a brief description of what happened, it was accepted & they canceled the ticket, I sent a photo copy of the ticket
