    • Hi, I received the parking ticket in the post a couple of weeks after I was in the car park at Gillingham ice bowl. I’d been waiting for my grandson to come out. I stayed in the car and because I didn’t know how long he was going to be it didn’t occur to me to pay for parking. I told them that when I got the fine. After that I ignored them because I was indignant about being fined. Eventually they stopped although they did change to a different company. I haven’t heard from them for over six months and out of the blue I get this letter.  I’ve paid for some legal advice which was and wasn’t helpful. 
    • Don't forget the one about the virus having Christmas Day off, 🤯 HT.
    • I guess we can expect ‘clarification’ from the PM tonight while the sky fills with flying pigs. My best guess on further measures: You can cross parish boundaries as long as you hop on one foot whilst humming happy birthday  Cars can move between different boroughs with differing restrictions as long as the combined ages of the occupants total no more than 90 years If your journey involves crossing county boundaries you need to download a government approved eye test chart and use this as your permit to travel.      
    • From what I can gather, which may be wrong or incomplete   The saliva test is supposed to be cheaper, easier and quicker to implement and check than the swab tests (projected at $10 in USA) BUT only effectively tests for infection in the upper respiratory tract - ie is readily spreadable by coughs and sneezes etc hence only 'validly flags people as 'not currently spreading via coughs and sneezes and only that for a limited time - perhaps a day tops.   Not sure how its supposed to check whether people are 'sweating' it out although it does seem likely that if people are sweating it - they would have it in the upper respiratory tracts - seems a reasonable assumption to me as a 'none virologist' . I'm not sure how certain it is that upper tract infections are the first - although it does seem likely in many or perhaps most cases   Not really how it was originally 'sold' - but nothing new with that It likely it uses relatively portable testing machines to test locally rather than send them off as in the reports of the 'Southampton' tests   https://www.gov.uk/government/news/new-saliva-test-for-coronavirus-piloted-in-southampton https://health.usnews.com/wellness/articles/what-to-know-about-new-saliva-tests-for-covid-19 https://heavy.com/news/2020/08/covid-19-saliva-test/ https://kstp.com/coronavirus/mdh-covid-19-briefing-fall-sports-changes-first-saliva-testing-sit-to-open-/5869458/ https://www.latimes.com/science/story/2020-08-31/covid-tests-with-saliva-are-comparable-to-nasal-swab-tests   As for charging everyone for it .. Just another way of taxing the NHS/care industry who along with schools and shop staff (IMO) would benefit the nation/community most by having it - other than that it just largely seems to be enabling the wealthy to bypass restrictions have their days out grousing and stag'ing .. as Dodo told the CBI “For that sort of test that may be a normal cost of doing business to be able to have non-socially distanced activities, but that’s different than for symptomatic people who should always feel like they can come to an NHS service.”

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

CARFLOW ANPR PCN - overstay - The Oaks Car Park, Acton, London


Recommended Posts

2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date]= 16/12/2019

 

3 Date received= 18/12/2019

 

4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [Y/N?]= Yes

 

5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event?= Unknown

 

6 Have you appealed? [Y/N?] post up your appeal]

Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up= Have not contacted Carflow so far

 

7 Who is the parking company?= Carflow

 

8. Where exactly [carpark name and town]= The Oaks Car Park, Acton, London

 

For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under.= POPLA

 

There are two official bodies, the BPA and the IAS. = BPA according to the letter head.  BTW the link in the 'HERE' text doesn't work anymore and BPA register site is down right now.

 

Hi all,

 

I have received the attached letter through the post day before yesterday and this is the first correspondence I have seen of this parking charge so far. 

It seems to me quite aggressive to send 'Notice of Pending Legal Action', but I noted the language used indicates that there should have been previous letters, but this is the first letter I've found since getting back home and opening all my backdated mail.  

 

I've checked the advice for posting a thread on this so here goes:

To add to this, I was not the driver at the time and this letter first made me aware of the charge. 

There is an attached parking receipt from that parking session (all old parking tickets live in the door bin lol)  and the car park apparently operates a 2hr free parking allowance for shoppers as I have recently discovered. 

 

the ticket covered the whole remaining period after that free period. 

However, I seem to be at a disadvantage now as the tone of the letter indicates the appeals period has passed even though I am just aware of this a couple of days ago. 

 

I'm pretty sure this will be sent to a debt collector which would be an annoyance. 

Any advice on how to combat this at this stage? 

Ignore or send an email/letter to Carflow?

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. 

Please let me know if any further info is needed and I apologise in advance if I have missed any etiquette in posting a new threat.

  • dx100uk changed the title to CARFLOW ANPR PCN - overstay - The Oaks Car Park, Acton, London

well done just about everything we need

you should always create your own thread..

 

onething i'm not understanding after a quick read..

 

are you saying you purchased [paid] for a ticket that covers the period on their demand? 

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, DCA;s -  would collapse overnight.

 

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs - that's why they will never tell you they are not bailiffs and have absolutely zero legal powers on any debt.

The person driving at the time informed me that they purchased the ticket which covers the period after the apparent free allowance of 2hrs.  However I'm not crystal clear on this so I'm driving up there tonight to figure this out for myself.  But quick maths on my part gave me the impression that after 2hrs free the £3 paid would more than cover the remaining time.

 

I'll be able to confirm this point when I get over there.  Thanks so much for the quick response :)

Yes the registration is 100% correct in the ticket, I removed it in the attached copy using Acrobat for the whole 'no identifying info' thingy :)

 

So in your experience, at this stage, is it suck it up and pay or ignore them and contend with the debt collectors?  I feel frustrated I now have this bill without a chance to contest or query it.

 

On a side note, I'm sure you (dx) were the one who helped me defeat Lloyds bank years ago on my old CAG account ;)

oh yes

for the minute we need to gather info.

like when they entered the car park

when they purchased the ticket 

how long was the ticket for

exit time.

 

those at present don't easily appear to be clear

but no you don't ever consider paying nor appealing until/if by some remote chance they send a letter of claim.

 

others will help too.

If this is the only correspondence the driver or keeper have received them it will be laughed out of court but lest get all of your info sorted before it gets that far.

can you gte back there and get some photos of the entrance to the land and any signs at the entrance? also any signs around the car aprk and lastly pictures of the ticket machine so we can read any blurb that you read when buyinga  ticket f it is different to the wording on the signage.

With a P&D the blurb on the machine is the contract, not the random signs so most important.no mention of paying them  a fortue for nothing on the machine? then you cant owe them.

 

You have to bear in mind that these companies only make money when someone does something wrong ( in their eyes) so they invent things that arent specifically intended or mentioned and are not arerse to just making stuff up as they know a large proportion will pay up anyway and moan afterwards

Hi Guys,

 

I had a similar problem recently. I parked in this car park and paid for the entire period after the first 90 minutes which was free.

 

The carpark company has contacted me claiming that if you stay over 90 minutes you have to pay for the entire stay. This was not made clear at the time and there was no signage that I could see stating this.

 

The company has subsequently put up additional signage to make this clear but they are still trying to recover the money from me.

 

I have some photographic evidence but it is a close up of the unclear signs and not a wide-shot of the payment machine area, where the new signs are now displayed.

 

Does anyone have any pictures of carpark from 2019/early 2020 that I could use to aid my case?

 

Or, any other advice?

 

I really dont want to pay this ticket as it is unfair but just need to make sure my evidence is watertight.

Hi.

 

The OP may or may not reply to you.

 

As dx says, you need to start your a new thread of your own rather than use one that was started to advise someone else, please.
