    • If you are absolutely certain* that you were parked OK, write a letter of complaint to the Headteacher and copy in the Chair of the school governors.   If you or the car were identifiable in any way from the photo (eg visible registration number, driver's face etc) I would very politely write that you resent the untrue suggestion that you had parked/had stopped/were waiting in a way that contravened any traffic regulations, and that you are sure that the school will understand that you would like an apology and a correction to be printed in the next newsletter.  (You can also clearly state that you were identifiable from the photo because other parents have mentioned it to you).   See if that works.   You don't want to go to court for defamation as you'll need access to about £10k in fees before you get out of bed.  You just want an apology and a correction.  If what you've told us is accurate, I don't see any reasonable school failing to say sorry.     *My wife is a former school governor and my experience listening to her is that very very few parents actually understand the meaning of the no stopping/no waiting signs and road markings outside schools.  Don't complain unless you are sure you weren't stopped where you shouldn't have been.
    • And they haven't offered a speed awareness course either?  (Have you done one in the last three years or is this in Scotland?)   And is one of the notices for 34 in a 30?  As Man in the Middle says, that ought to be below the level at which they take action.   (And sorry - I don't want to appear preachy - but...  there don't have to be any warnings or signs or lines on the road to advise you of the presence of speed cameras.  If you get away with an exceptional hardship argument you will need to stick to speed limits in future - whether you know there are cameras there or not.  NB Don't know if this applies to you, but most 30 mph limits are restricted roads with a system of streetlighting and don't even need speed limit signs - you are assumed to know this from the Highway Code).
    • It's up to you if you want to pay £300 you don't owe plus whatever Unicorn Food Tax with no basis in law whatsoever that they will have made up in the Letter Before Claim.   We'd prefer you didn't.   But you have received a LBC so it's make your mind up time.   So please    - post up photos of the signage in the dark that you'll have taken two months ago (post 14)    - post up details of planning permission for their signs you'll have found out after you got onto the council, again two months ago (again post 14)    - also let us know if you agree with Brassnecked's excellent letter or if you'd like to tweak bits depending on what you've found out    - upload the LBC.  Some of them are appallingly drafted and invariably contain Unicorn Food Tax which is all useful extra ammo    - also, where are you living now (post 35) and are you comfortable with legal communications arriving at your parents'?   If you look in our PPC Successes thread at the top of the page, you will see 275 times these cheats have been seen off with their tails between their legs (and all had the same "well known legal companies" (ho! ho!) on hand).  In reality 275 times is a massive underestimate, in all 275 cases there was a "moment of victory" IYSWIM where the PPC were thrashed in court or discontinued a claim or were called off by a supermarket chain, etc., etc.  There will have been at least that number again where they were told to Foxtrot Oscar and then crawled back under their stone.  They are eminently beatable but logically when you're in legal dispute you have to put some graft in to beat the other party.

What is the outcome of this case? I’m due in court end of month for theEXACT same reason at the exact same car park.

 

i have debunked and demythed their witness statement.

 

can u let me know how u got on? I the witness statement the owner of link parking claims there is nothing wrong the ticket machine has never stopped working as this hasn’t been reported to them. Yet it wasn’t working in November 2018.... April 2018 it wasn’t working (according to google street view) and obviously a year later it still isn’t working.

 

cut a long story short I got my ticket in the time it took me to walk to the ticket machine and back. Since it’s in a different car park. 

 

Apparently the car park without the ticket machine is ONLY for customers paying online although it says that nowhere in the car park ...the place and the company are a joke. I can’t wait to wipe the floor with them in court.

 

the signs also wrongly suggest they are a member of the BPA which they are not.

Do you want a copy of their witness statement.

So you know what they are agoing to say in court.

It’s a load of rubbish

 

My witness statement should stand up.

I’ve also asked unliquidated damages as counterclaim for breaching of data protection as their was no contravention, they weren’t allowed to obtain my details from dvla, which they did fraudulently. 

 

Mma’s far as you and I are aware on entry to the car park we are forming a contract with HD Ltd T/a Simply park.

Hi Bris2wales

 

Many thanks for all the info.  At present I have only had a letter before claim but will probably get a claim any way.

 

I am not bothered by a claim as they have many issues not least the fact there is no sign in the car park regarding the contract - they even admitted this when my wife appealed.

 

I dont think you will have any problem beating them in court - please let me know how you get on.

I will do.

Don’t think I’m jumping on here with my own problems looking for help. I’m not.

Just giving you my info regarding the same.

 

I will upload their witness statement and evidence for you on Wilburn they will rely upon in in court.

That way, if you do get a claim form.

You will already know what their witness statement says and you can base your defence around that.

 

they will try to bully you into having a paper hearing.

Presumably so they don’t have to pay a hearing fee.

But take it all the way if you can

It is dangerous to assume that the witness statement from one claim will be the same as another. Better to await yours and show it to the experts on here in order to get tailored advice.

There is no bullying to have a paper hearing, simply a request to the court for it. This is rebutted in your directions questionnaire if it gets that far. The reason they do this is not just to save a hearings fee, but mainly because they cannot then be cross examined to show the unmitigated lies that they always make.

so they admit their quality control for the machinery is the automatic issue more charge notices and see what complaint they get afterwards. they also do not quantify how many more they consider a possible wonky machine. If they normallt issue 1 a day then issuing 2 should raise flags for them but it wont, they will just rub their hnads at the thought of the extra money

That wont impress anyone looking at contract law. What a bunch of muppets

Well it’s all to do with “contract law” as we know. In there witness statement they have said that nobody is permitted to park if the machine is out of order. Nowhere, does it say that on any signs. Whatsoever.

 

according to citizens advice. It says “your ticket should be cancelled if the ticket machine was broken” 

 

Further in their witness statement it says that the it is the drivers reaponsibilty to “look” for signs, contrary to the IPC and the BPA code of conduct where it states appropriate signs must be placed at the point of entry “before the driver can make an informed decision as to whether he may wish to continue parking and accept those terms.”

 

it is very clear the parking meter was not working and contrary to their witness statement, hasn’t been working for some period of time.

 

When driving into the site, the only company name you see is “simply park” and therefor you are making a contract with simply park.

 

simply park is a trading name of HD limited, who own the land. Therefore having not engaged in a contract with Link Parking, I will be counterclaim  for unliquidated damages for DATA protection and fraudulently requesting my details from the DVLA.

 

i really cannot wait to the court date. I will also ask the judge (should I win the case) to impose terms that link parking must make there signs more clear/ more prominent and take down signs that show they are a member of the BPA when they are not. And to ensure customers are 100% sure which car park belongs to which company and which car parks belong to the council. 

 

i will also be asking the judge to impose terms upon link parking that stop them using there pay and display machine as money making tool, and to either have the machine fixed, or change the car park/ or signage in order for the public to know what to do in case of such facilities not working.

the bit about not parking when the machinery is bust is  a lie. they have to perform their bit of the contract or it is void and they cnat demand money. that doesnt prevent you from parking, you have been invited on to the land by the landowner and that isnt them.

 

A judge wont have the powers to order anyone to mend their machinery, merely pass judement on any case that subsequently appears in front of them and presumably dismiss them as being hopeless.

Yiou could get an injunction to force them to behave in a certain manner but before you consider that I would clock up another half a dozen charge notices and see them through to the bitter end if possible. use your partner's car so they dont twig they are being set up

HD Lmited are in hock to the bank so they wont be able to enter into a contract that sssigns such rights to a third party if it was after the charge was applied to their assets.

This again will mean that the parking co cant perform to the contract

So the plot thickens!! Please can you elaborate? Can I use any of this information in court? 

 

So so the bank have a charge on the land?

 

How do you know this - and where can I obtain such information. And where is their anylegislation that suggests they assign to third party’s etc etc

 

It doesn’t mention Llynfi court or Llynfi house in the charge documents. Only mentions other land that hd ltd have

 

Maybe that means that HD Limited no longer own the land , and that the maintenance contract between link parking and HD limited are null and void ...

Bris2Wales your last comment on post 54 was rude and unnecessary. DX100uk has made over 130,000 posts helping people on this forum to your 12. Obviously making so many posts he tends to be quite brief in some of his posts. All of the Site team [ and contributors] on here are unpaid volunteers so the minmum they should expect is a degree of politeness from those who are benefitting from their help.

I notice that you have not posted up your own  PCN problem which is your prerogative, but even so you have been given some helpful advice during your posts with Brunowales. You may even have been given enough to enjoy a better win today. Good luck with your case and it would be helpful if you could kindly let us know the result.

First of all. Sorry for my reply. It wasn’t meant to sound as non cordial as it was.

 

i won my case. And was awarded loss of earnings. 
 

It was rule the signage there is a lack of, and the signs that are there are unclear. 
 

I’m not too sure if I’m allowed to say anything else? Isn’t there like a secrecy act of some sort ? If some one can advise then I will post the transcript.

Great stuff, one in the eye for fleecers.

 

Once case is decided its usually ok for transcript, as it may help others and can be persuasive as a reference in a defence bundle if someones case is for similar things.  It isn't Precedent would need a higher court to set that , but is useful if same PPC with same basic POC.

We could do with some help from you.
