Hello,

 

I received the attached letter today from Parking Eye,

 

I use the car park on a regular basis to drop off and pick up my wife when she is going to work as it it a safe an convenient place.

I dont stay for any longer than 5 minutes at any time, therefore it is obvious that the camera in question has taken a picture whilst arriving on the afternoon of 07/11/2019 at 15.22, whilst collecting my wife and then subsequently pictured me arriving on the morning of the 08/11/2019 at 07.32 whilst dropping her off.

 

There doesn't seem to be any other images to support me leaving or entering the car park in question, therefore the suggestion is that the car has been parked all night. 

 

There are no barriers restricting access or coin operated machines to purchase tickets.

The car park in question services various retail stores and a snooker hall.

I dont reside in the area as I live over 10 miles away and would not any reason whatsoever to leave the vehicle overnight.

 

Any assistance with this matter would be appreciated, I have not contacted Parking Eye in any way nor submitted an appeal.

 

Thanks

 

Ian

2 alternatives here and the choice is entirely yours.

 

1) Ignore it and let them waste their money sending ever more threatening letters until they send a LBC in line with PAP at which point you can send them a scathing letter which should see them cancel it.

 

2) Save them the money and send them the scathing letter now. (This is one of the very, very few circumstances where I would even suggest this as an option).

 

Now 1 is fine as long as you can hold your nerve and it doesn't stress anyone. If it's going to give you or your nearest and dearest any angst, then 2 may be your preferred option. If you tried 2 and they were stupid enough to not cancel it, then you revert to option 1 - no letter tennis under any circumstances. In either case it's best to get your own photos of signs, entrance, site plan etc in case you need it later. Better to have it and not need it than the other way round.

 

Your scathing letter (at whichever point it's sent) will tell them how pants their ANPR cameras are and maybe they should get them from somewhere a bit better than Argos next time. Suggest a 'ooman bean' looks at the records for themselves, or maybe a trained chimp if that's too difficult for them. You will refer only to "my vehicle entered" and "my vehicle left" and "my vehicle was not parked" - no "I", "Me" or anything else that might identify the driver.

 

Before you send anything always post it here first though. It's easy to miss one little word and drop yourself in it or at least make life harder for yourself.

Hello,

 

Many thanks for your assistance and suggestion, could you possibly direct me to a draft letter on the forum that I could use that would have a better impact with them.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

Thanks for the response, will have look at other threads, I have tried to find out who owns the land so I can approach them to complain but as yet no-one seems to know anything.

I have researched local council planning website, the last entry for this location is back in 2007 and the list is for agents dealing with leasing retail units as a point of contact. There are currently 3 active retailers on this site and 2 empty units.

 

I have since looked on my google map timeline on my mobile phone which demonstrates my movements from the two days in question, this clearly shows my locations and travel times to and from home during the times listed on the PNC, can this be treated as sufficient evidence?

How should I proceed with this, should I lodge an appeal with parking eye or send information directly to the retailers to see if the ticket will be cancelled through them?

Only trouble is, if there are several retailers it's probably outwith their control, it'll be their landlord's realm. They could complain to their landlord about driving customers away etc, but since you weren't a customer it might be difficult to convince them to bother.

 

No harm in asking though - worst they can do is say no, just don't be too crestfallen if they do, plenty of other avenues.

I wouldnt respnd, appeal or say anything to PE at all yet.

your draft letter shows your general ignorance over such matters so spend the next moth reading up on hundreds of thread to learn a bit ore about the issues, pitfalls and faults of private parking charges demands. They will be writing to you again so still have the chance to tell them where to go.

 

Their camera systems are so rubbish they dont recognise it when you drive in the exit and out of the entrance after the alowed time so double dipping is a very common occurrence. Not in their interest to correct matters is it?

Received my second letter today from PE, the front part is the same as the first but the back part has a case law section that outlines the judgement in ParkingEye v Beavis (2015) and how PE won their case.
