VCS Spycar PCN - no stopping - Southend Airport

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

 

I have been ignoring a few letters from Vehicle Control Services. Specifically the Notice to Keeper, Demand for Payment, Final Reminder and the Final Demand.

 

Now we are at the stage where we just received the Letter before Claim and i believe i am now supposed to respond with something along the lines of:

 

Dear VCS,

 

In reply to your letter sent on xx/xx/xxxx.

 

There has been no breach of any contractual agreement therefore I owe you nothing.

 

Regards

 

Have i got it right so far? Just wanted to make sure i am doing this all correctly.

 

Also, accompanying the Letter before Claim was Annex 1 and Annex 2 which consists of an Information Sheet, Reply Form with a Signature Section and a Financial Statement.

 

My question is, do i even need to fill any of this out? Or could i not just type up this response and print it out, put it in the envelope and send it back?

 

1 Date of the infringement

15/10/2019

 

2 Date on the NTK

21/10/2019

 

3 Date received

29/10/2019

 

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

I don't think so. But i can't find the original NTK. I only have a blurry photo.

 

5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event?

YES

 

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

Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up

NO

 

7 Who is the parking company?

VEHICLE CONTROL SERVICES

 

8. Where exactly?

SOUTHEND AIRPORT. ESSEX

 

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

Unsure

There are two official bodies, the BPA and the IAS.

Hello and welcome to CAG. Thank you for the information we need, the forum experts should be along to advise later.

 

Please don't do anything about contacting them until the guys are able to view what's happened so far. :)

 

Best, HB

Is this a No Stopping incident, as per stopped on an access road? could you give a bit of background history, so that we can be sure ita a Byelaws issue and advise the correct wording to send Simple Simon.


We could do with some help from you.

Hello SS,

 

That seems to be the case, the pictures taken of my vehicle, shows that it is stopped just outside of Southend airport with no clear images of the driver (whatsoever) but clearly in a no stop zone.

 

Not something that was noticed at the time however.

 

Thanks 

Deadlock

So just so I am clear, is the Letter of claim different to letter before claim?

 

I shouldn't contest it at this point? But rather wait for a 'letter of claim'

 

Sorry, who is Simple Simon, are you referring to the ticket enforcers?

 

Thanks

Thank you for clarifying:

 

So I do need to respond?

 

Do I need to fill in any of the forms provided by them, or do I just type up a letter and send to them?

 

Do you have a better snotty letter?

 

Thanks for your assistance all

lots of VCS no stopping threads here with the required letter text to send

but you DO NOT respond at all until you get that letter of claim.

 

and you put that and your intended reply up here 1st before sending it.

Apologies, I thought it was!!

Letter before Claim (2).pdf

 

DX, I found the below in a post that you also were involved in, it has a very similar circumstance to my own, would this be a sufficient reply in my position?

 

Unfortunately for you I wasn’t born yesterday so I won’t be paying your demand, you know what I know and that is there is no liability in this matter because the land is covered by its own byelaws, the signage is prohibitive and not an offer of a contract so none has been breached and anyway the POFA limits any charge to the specified sum so your demand for £160 is just a nonsense.

 

As VCS has been spanked at court on this very same thing several times before I suggest that you discontinue this foolishness and that way you will at least obey Civil Procedure. I know that may well be a first for you but call it your new year's resolution.

 

Should you decide to continue then I shall be asking for a full costs recovery order for unreasonable behaviour and then seek damages for breach of the DPA.

Didn't need their forms just the letter, returning the form merely encourages them to think you will  wet yourself cough up if they issue a claimform after the 30 days

at least the response is somehting they will be familiar with and also correct.

Now as you wil know by reading a few hundred threads about VCS, they are greedya nd stupid, a bad combination, so it is likely they will issue a claim against you anyway.

You now need to understand what this is all about and it is not parking as you werent parked but about the enforceability of a contract and that assumes one can exist between you and them in the first place.

 

Get busy both here and by reading  a mass of what can be found on the Parking Pranksters blogspot. that is full of commentary but more importantly reports on court cases where you will find some that are identical in law to yours.

The airport has ByeLaws, VCS can only sue for breach of a contract they imagine they have with you, however No Stopping is a Prohibition, so no contract can ever be formed or exist for them to,claim a bean for anything.  Won't stop them trying though.  So do as EB says read up on the Airport threads and look at Parking Prankster.
