Recommended Posts

Just to show that Private Parking Contractors  employed by councils are no better than PPC's, this one in the Mail takes some beating.

It's rubbish. No-one buys a pay and display ticket for someone else's car and leaves it under the wiper blade. Clearly they either hadn't paid to park, or there was an invalid ticked under the windscreen (you can see the warden dwell on that part of the car, taking extra photos).

 

"Maybe they have targets to hit..." (yawn).

Well whatever the rights and wrongs the Council went with the pub landlord.s version of events based on the cctv, but two sides to every story as you say Jamberson.

Now if the warden saw an invalid ticket there and thought that it was placed there with the intent of trying to defraud the council out of revenue they may well remove it and report immediately to their superiors as such. Removing such evidence and not handing it over does make me believe that the story rings true.

 

I once did an FOI request on a council regarding the amount of money taken on a particular day from a particular meter that happened to be faulty. The council employed private contractors to empty all of  the meters and count the money.  the FOI found a match for the amount they received versus the amount accounted for by the machine when it couild be shown that there would have been a lot more money in the machine than the times paid for. the upshot was that the council decided to investigate the whole system and changed how they did their cashing up because there were suspected shortfalls amounting to a considerabe amount. That is not to say there was an endemic problem with the honesty of the service co but the system was not watertight and open to challenge.

 

Now if this warden couldnt account for her actions even if the accusation wasnt true then that weak link would need to be removed from the chain
