I didn’t get a copy of what I put in the appeal (rooky mistake). However it did say I had accidentally placed a digit wrong I did display the ticket and provided a photo of the ticket. 


Does this help?

yep bang shot yourself in the foot there by appealing and outing yourself as the driver.


pers i'd do nothing more now

you have proof of payment


just because their ANPR is so useless it cant workout an extra payment and one that got inputted wrong around the same time period is NOT your problem.


see if they get one of their fake/tame paperwork only solicitors to issue a letter of claim

if they do then comeback here


there are numerous wrong reg topics here to read 

use our search top right.

Tbh it all depends what £15 is to you and how brave or how much of a worrier you are. Yes, you'd probably win if it ever went to court - there's plenty of history of wins over trivial errors of reg numbers. It might not go to court, SIP don't do much court. However, this will more than likely mean months of letters with them gradually claiming you owe them more and more including (powerless/fake) debt collector and solicitor letters. If you can hold your nerve that's fine, but if that's going to cause you sleepless nights, then £15 might be worth it to make it go away. It's your call.

the request for £15 for admin is just cobblers legally speaking and so badly worded it makes it look like you owe them nothing if you appeal anyway and that is not what they mean.


look up the term "de minimis" and then look up parking cases at PATAS with incorrect car reg and de minmimis and you will see that as there has been no loss the parking co shouldnt be trying to sue for money they ahvent lost for trifling reasons.


In short they will get a spanking if they do go ater you but they are a nuisance and will drain you of energy if you dont have the right attitude and desire to fight so if you are likely to cave in later then take the offer but understand that it isnt an honest offer, just a convenience for you
