    • Thank you for your message.  I'm concerned that by complaining to the IPC, and escalating the situation, PCM would be even more inclined to cause problems for me and take action to the fullest extent just to make an example of me.  I can still take the above action as a backup plan if PCM decides to go ahead.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Hello CAG members

 

I wonder whether anyone could help?

 

I recently received a parking charge notice from G24 that refers to a date roughly three weeks into May for the car park outside B&M Stores in Falkirk (Scotland), with an issue date a week after.

 

The car park is free but timed seemingly to 2 hours and in this case a 20 minute overstay has been flagged.

I haven't as yet responded.

 

Although I own the car, the driver, a gentle and vulnerable person who pays their taxes and wouldn't bother a fly, could easily have picked this letter up before I did, which really bothers me. And as I'm dealing at the moment with same person being bullied in bereavement by the BBC licensing people, I'm really not a happy bunny right now.

 

Unfortunately the forum won't let me post the notice as an attachment or link.

It's exactly the same one in format and text

https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?478877-CPCN-Meadow-Street-retail-park-falkirk-Scotland

 

Here's the text as near as I can get it:

 

On the rear they refer to an appeals procedure using the Independent Appeals Service and an Alternative Dispute Resolution scheme, and say, "If you appeal this charge then you will lose the ability to pay at the reduced rate."

 

Then further down it says:

 

GDPR

Please note that we have obtained the name and address of the registered keeper of the vehicle from the DVLA for the purposes of enforcing this unpaid charge...in accordance with the Road Vehicles (Registration and Licensing) Regulations 2002.

 

I'm not very familiar with law stuff so obviously I'll be having a search around the forum but my initial questions for now are:

 

- Is this really enforceable?

- As of 2018, do they really have the right to get my details from the DVLA?

 

Thanks a lot for your help.

 

BD.

Surely if this is Scotland, there is no Keeper Liabiliy,

 

 

 

Scotland opted out of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012, which introduced keeper liability in England and Wales. ... Since the 2012 Act does not apply in Scotland, the registered keeper of a vehicle cannot be held liable for unpaid parking charges.8 Dec 2017

 

 

What do you reckon folks, if correct nice claim for unlawful data processin especially now GDPR is in.

We could do with some help from you.

Hi and welcome to CAG

I have just looked on Street View and I cannot zoom into the signs to be able to read them so this means another visit to B&M and get close up pictures of the signs and include the one at the entrance.

 

 

As this car park is purely for the use of B&M customers, I would be complaining to B&M.

 

 

 

As PoFA doesn't apply in Scotland, G24 can only go after the driver so it's not in your interest to name the driver. What they may try is going after the keeper on the assumption that you were the driver and you don't have to enlighten them to that fact.

 

 

As for appealing. G24 are members of the IPC who don't give a stuff about you. They are a 'boys club' where there only function is to look after their members, not you. The IAS is also biased in favour of G24, soit will do you no good appealing one iota.

 

 

The ONLY time to react is if you receive a Letter Before Action/Claim. That is the time to take action.

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

This will need to be tested. This is the first case I have seen where GDPR has been mentioned when getting keeper details. A letter to the DVLA may be in order to ascertain their opinion. I bet when G24 went online to get the data, they wouldn't have mentioned Scotland

The ICO are the peopel to complain to as the DVLA is already in an awkward spot over the unfettered access they give to private parking co's.

Yes, you can sue the parking co and will win if you use the right case law as precedent but that wont stop the parking co's from trying it on wit th next person.

 

 

Again, my advice is to let them waste their money until the last and then sue them if you are mionded to but get the complaint into the ICO first. Remember that they have no reasonable cause to ask for your details in Scotland, a belief that the driver is the keeper isnt good enough so dont be puit off. The DVLA would respond in that manner so no point going there.

other way round, you complain to the ICO that the DVLA is giving away yoru details withot good reason as they havent bothered to ask the company any questions about the event and whether it fits in with reasobable cause. The DVLA will pass the buck because they know that they dotn check on the parking co's and rely on them telling the truth all of the time and we know that tell ies almost 99% of the time if you take planning law and their illegal sigane into that equation.

 

 

Interesting replies, thanks all.

Will digest this, won't do anything with G24 just now but will have a read around the ICO and might consider an exploratory letter to DVLA
