VCS PCN - no stopping - Bristol Airport

Recommended Posts

Driver here has received the same letter for stopping at the pedestrian crossing at Bristo lAirport for a few seconds when their car had stalled anyway and the passenger decided to hop out.


Driver dropped off at Bristol Airport and car stalled at the crossing.

Passenger jumped out and driver drive off.


Received a parking fine.

Option of payment of £60 has now passed.

Should they pay? 


Not sure whether to pay and missed the 14 day £60 thing.


Have Bristol Airport started this nonsense very recently?

They should be ashamed of themselves!

Might be worth demanding the CCTV video of the time stopped as if someone was crossing, VCS will miss that out from the stills, provided, might make them wet themselves as if it clearly shows someone crossing, its irrelevant that the passenger got out, the stop was a legitimate purpose, and in any case Bye-lawes apply and VCS have no Locus Standi to claim a bent bean.

We could do with some help from you.

Just a question on dates.


The NTK was issued on 15th November.

We don't know if it was posted on that day [Friday] but even if not posted til Monday, it should still have arrived before the 25th.


Is your car on lease perhaps or are you sure the 25th was the correct arival date.


If so it might be worth writing to the DVLA and asking them when they responded to the VCS request for your data.

These companies are not above lying about dates on their PCNs.

only ever respond if they send a letter of claim.

ok thanks v much will do. I don’t remember anyone crossing so no use asking to see vid. It would have been about three seconds that I stopped so I understand that bye laws overrule that and to say you can’t stop is out of their remit. Is there anything else? And obviously I won’t write unless I receive a letter of claim.

read all about airport parking and prohibitive signage, grace periods etc and you will see what is wrong with this demand.

Thanks, will do



“get all of your info first”



What do you mean by this? Do you mean wait to see what else they send me?

you need to read a lot of threads on private parking and also background on  the difference betwen an offer of a  contract  and a prohibitive notice.

the Parking prankster's blogspot has plenty of examples where peopel have been sued and won by knowing the difference.


VCS have recently got contracts with a couple of airports and are trying their luck before they get clobbered by the airport  and the ICO.


the more you sit things out the better as it will weaken their resolve to waste money on an unwinnable claim and they will ahve spent a few bon on chasing you by then.


Even the world's worst solicitors wont represent them any more
