    • Email and call your local councillor, their details should be on Google.  Just explain everything to them and they will have the bailiffs off your back in short order.   Do it now, and this could be resolved by tomorrow.  
    • Your latest ramblings make no sense in relation to the issue (which is whether a person hearing an SD can question the maker as to its truthfulness and reject the declaration if they are not satisfied as such).     It's not within 21 days of the hearing it's within 21 days of learning of the conviction of which they were unaware. I don't know what it is you are reading or are referring to but there is no "debtor" involved in an SD that is made to have a conviction set aside. When an SD is heard in court the only officers involved are the court's Legal Advisor and the Magistrates themselves.   I’ve just been looking back at the original post which started all this off to ensure I wasn’t going mad. I’m pleased to say I don’t think I am. Instead I am of the opinion that you did not properly grasp what originally happened to the OP and compounded that by providing incorrect, misleading and confusing advice whilst plucking bits of irrelevant legislation from thin air randomly when you commented. Here’s a few of your quotes and my comments for you to consider.     The OP said no such thing. She said she had moved three years earlier. For some reason unknown, her change of address was not recorded by the DVLA. She said she was happy to accept the speeding allegation. This indicated she was driving (a fact she confirmed absolutely soon afterwards). Nowhere did she ever say she was not the owner of the vehicle at the relevant time.         So, from advice to plead Not Guilty to advice to plead Guilty inside two hours, with no new or additional information provided. Still you mention somebody else being the driver.         What is an “out of time statement” and where and when was one ever mentioned?     Then from the OP:       Your response:       The cause of any confusion was your comments. She said from the outset that she did not live at her old address when the offence was committed (in fact she went to some lengths to explain that was why she did not receive the court papers). Nowhere did she suggest she was not the driver nor that she could not or would not disclose who was.     No it isn’t. A Statutory Declaration voids the original conviction as if it never happened. Section 142 of the Magistrates’ Court Act is not involved with the resurrection of proceedings following an SD. That Section grants the Magistrates powers to re-open cases to rectify mistakes, etc. There has been no mistake here, the Magistrates will not be called upon to re-open the case and could not prevent it being revisited even if they wanted to.   Then we set off into the intricacies of the Statutory Declaration process which is covered above.   I’m not surprised the OP in this particular case became confused. Her matter is straightforward enough (for those who know the law and the process). In summary: She moved; She thought the DVLA had her vehicle registered at her new address but they hadn’t; Her vehicle (with her driving) was detected speeding; She (unsurprisingly) did not receive the notification of that offence or the request for driver’s details; She obviously didn’t reply to that request, she was prosecuted for it, convicted in her absence and without her knowledge.   Happens every day and simple to deal with.   Unfortunately, not when you became involved it isn't. Firstly you grasped the wrong end of the stick by assuming she was not the owner and/or the driver. You advised her to plead Not Guilty on that basis. Then, when you had grasped some idea of what had really happened you suggested she plead guilty to the S172 offence purely on the basis she had moved and the speeding information was sent to her old address. Very poor advice. Then you scared her witless by incorrectly suggesting there was a chance her SD would be rejected if it was thought her declaration may be untruthful. There also followed discussions about the six month time limit for prosecutions and the 21 day limit for SDs to be accepted unconditionally (both totally irrelevant).   I don’t suppose you will accept any of these criticisms but whether you do or not you clearly caused the OP considerable confusion and probably distress. My comments are not based on something I've heard on the net or on barroom (sic) knowledge. They are based on my knowledge of the law and of Magistrates' Court procedures.  It's obvious you will pay no heed to me so when I see any such clearly misleading information provided to an OP by you in this section in future I will simply report it to the site's administrators.
    • Just ignore unless you receive a PAP letter.    Chances are you will run out the clock and it will become SB'd.    
    • Sure I read somewhere that PayPal MADE 2.2 billion dollars in 2018, so I guess losing out on say 10 million a year in negative balance is more cost effective than paying tax in the UK?  Dont get me wrong I’m by no means saying “sod it” they can afford it, I’m just hoping they don’t take me to the cleaners and at least give me time. 
    • I apologise profusely for my actions in this case. I pride myself on my integrity and honesty and I feel shameful for my moment of very poor judgement. As the sole income earner for the family (my wife is on maternity leave), a criminal record would be devastating for us as my employment relies upon a clean criminal record.   On the 22nd I was travelling to London Bridge and needed to connect at Three Bridges. When purchasing my ticket in the morning I only bought a ticket to Three Bridges by mistake.   I made a bad error and I am just so sorry for my actions and the inconvenience caused to all involved.   I am happy to make immediate payment of the unpaid fare and any incurred costs that my mistake have caused.   I would appreciate your consideration and I sincerely hope that you can show some leniency as an criminal conviction would impact my employment and ultimately being able to provide for my family.   Regards   I cant offer to get a monthly ir annual as I only travel a handful of times per year.

Good morning people, I was hoping you could help me in regards to a parking charge I received back on the 27th of July.

 

The car park I used is free for the first 3 hours, but you have to get a ticket.

I had done this, went to have some lunch

 

on return to the car had a parking notice on the windscreen from UKPC.

I found this very odd as I'd got a ticket as soon as we had arrived.

 

Once in the car I noticed that the ticket had fallen next to the gear stick.

It must have been blown by the wind when we were getting my daughter out of the car

(this took a little longer than normal as she was Having a meltdown)

the ticket was just a paper one, no adhesive.

 

I immediately sent my appeal explaining the above, (I now know I shouldn't have done this) I received an automated response that i very quickly scanned and the only part I took in was how they'd respond within 35 days.

With that I put it to the back of my mind.

 

On Saturday the 14th of October I received a letter from a debt recovery agency telling me I owe them £160!

I do find this totally unfair considering my appeal was obviously ignored.

I still have the original display ticket that had blown out of my windscreen.

And the original parking charge ticket.

 

I emailed BPO with all the information and have received a response today saying ,

 

Thank you for your e-mail.

 

I can confirm UK Parking Control Ltd are members of the BPA and an Operator under the Approved Operator Scheme.

 

Please be advised that unfortunately if UKPC can provide copies of the rejection letter they sent we cannot advise there to be a breach of the Code of Practice.

Are you able to provide copies of all correspondence you have sent and received from the Operator?

Please also detail any dates of calls made to the Operator so we can contact them with a timeline if necessary.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Kind regards,

Gemma Dorans

AOS Investigations Team

 

Any help from you guys would be gratefully received.

 

Many thanks

ignore DR+, they are nothing and can do nothing.

 

As for the £160 they just hope you are stupid enoigh to pay them without questioning it.

 

We need to see the signage at the car park to get stuck into this,

by appealing you have removed the protection the law give you in the procedural matters and now it is just a straightforward matter of contractual obligations or not.

I've now received the letter from DRP with Notice of intended court action. And how they will pass my file onto their client with recommendation they take court action against me.

 

They keep referring to a court win back in 2015!! Have they had none since?

DR+ have never had a court win because they are just letter writers.

 

The case they refer to is always trotted out without them actually understanding what was decided and how it applies.

 

In short the courts agreed with Parking Eye that a charge of £80 is allowable without them having to produce a schedule of loss as it was commercially justifiable and not an unconscionable amount for a particular circumstance.

 

Since then all the parking co's quote it as justification for charging "100 and claiming it is a golden bullet so they don't have to actually have a contract, adequate signage permissiosn etc that actually still apply to their operations.

 

as for the sign, it isnt a contract as it refers to conditions that are not on the sign and has reference to an unfair contractual term, namely the addition of a £60 PENALTY if they pass matters on to a recovery agent.

 

This is in breach of the Consumer rights Act and entitles you to reject the entire contract, not just the unlawful bit

no, you read up on dca's and their lack of any powers first and then you ignore them in the certain knowledge that they are all mouth and trousers.

 

ignoring them is not the same as ignorance so do some homework.

 

Start off with a random buch of threads here then go and read a couple of years woth of the Parking Prankster's blog as that contains a mass of info on court claiims and how they were handled and the law behind the decisions.

You will then be better informed as to what to do when you get the next letter should that arise.

 

Thanks for your help..

Thanks for all your help,

 

Today I received a response from BPA,

 

And hThank you for your patience whilst this matter was investigated.

 

I have received a response from UKPC who advise that they received your appeal on 27/07/2017 and subsequently rejected this on 31/08/2017.

UKPC advise that they responded to your appeal via e-mail

– please find the attached copy of the outcome sent to you.

 

I note that you advise that you did not receive the appeal rejection outcome,

however, it is not possible for us to ascertain whether e-mail or mail has or has not been sent or received by either party

and as such, the BPA will not become involved in a dispute on this point.

 

I hope that the above information is of assistance to you.

 

As I have not identified a breach of our Code,

I will not be investigating this matter further at this time and this case is now closed.

 

Kind regards,

I guess the research will have to continue just in case the decide to take me to court

 

Lesson learnt that's for sure!

 

Thank you for your recent correspondence in relation to the above Parking Charge.

 

We have investigated your appeal based on the information you have submitted and confirm that this parking charge was correctly issued because there are sufficient signs at St Stephens Place Leisure Park advising drivers that a valid pay and display ticket must be clearly displayed.

 

UK Parking Control Ltd does not issue or collect “Penalty Charges”, “fines” or “Excess Charges”.

 

Such things are only relevant to the on-street or civil enforcement area and enforced by police/traffic wardens or council civil enforcement officers under the Traffic Management Act 2004 or the Road Traffic Acts.

This legislation is not applicable to private land.

 

We can confirm, however, that UKPC has the authority to issue and enforce Parking Charge Notices, for breach of contract in accordance with the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012.

 

Our appeals process is now concluded,

you may now pick one of the following options:

 

1) Pay the parking charge detailed above at the reduced rate of £60 to UK Parking Control Ltd. PLEASE REFER OVERLEAF FOR PAYMENT OPTIONS AND ADDRESS DETAILS.

 

2) Make an appeal to the independent adjudicator POPLA (Parking on Private Land Appeals) using the verification code provided above.

 

Please note that if you wish to appeal to POPLA,

you will lose the right to pay the discounted rate of £60 ,

and should POPLA reject your appeal you will be required to pay the full amount of £ 100 .

 

If you opt to pay the parking charge you will be unable to appeal with POPLA.

 

Appeals to POPLA must be made within twenty-eight days from the date of this letter.

 

To appeal with POPLA

 

Here is a copy of their supposed email.

 

Although in the response from BPA it looks more like an actual letter to be posted.

 

It adds links for POPLA for an appeal, but as I've only just got the rejection letter the code is out of date and obviously the 28 days to appeal with them has expired!

 

Convenient got UKPC!

I told them what had happened,

how the wind must have blown he ticked down onto my gearstick as we were getting the baby out of her seat..

 

as it was just a paper ticket with no adhesive backing to make sure it stayed put.

 

I had a ticket, still have it in fact.

 

I'm annoyed at myself for not actually having a copy of what I actually sent,

 

as it was one of those online forms I don't have it in my email sent items!!

shred it

 

ignore them totally

just don't ignore a claimform pack from the COURT.

but I very much doubt you'll get one of those

and as already explained

it will be easily defeated if you did you have your ticket.

 

no-one has ever lost in court whereby they had it.

Also as UKPC couldnt produce their email copy they have no evidence they did follow the protocols of the POFA so that itself means that they have failed to create a liability.

 

Now, the CPR's state that proper notice of a debt must be sent to the defendant before a legal action can be taken.

As they have failed to do this then they may well lose 50% of anything they claim even if the claim is sound.

 

File all of the correspondence, even the stupid BPA letter is evidence that UKPC didnt produce evidence fo following the CoP they are supposed to and the cowards just cant be bothered to take action against their members who cant be bothered to behave properly.

Shows what use the trade associations are when it comes to enforcement

I've had my Final settlement letter from DRP... £136 to avoid court action. They are recommending their client take court action. And it's their clients final offer to settle the matter berfore considering court action.

 

I like the threat that a Court Judgment against me could seriously affect my future creditworthiness and employability! Nice touch

Now zenith collections are writing to me! Same threats as DRP.. I’ve read they’re DRP in disguise! Still offering me a reduced amount if paid within 14 days of the letter date!

They do. It's usually 3 or 4 letters from DRP, then 2 or 3 from Zenith. The last letter from each will contain a "Reduced payment offer", isn't that kind of them :lol:
