CRASH CAR PARKED

dcbl letter re Mway Servs PCN - after rear-ended at 1am on Mway

Recommended Posts

In 2016 I was driving on the motorway at 1am and a car drove in to the back of my car,

police attended and told me to park in a service area until the morning as my car was damaged, 

I was shaken up and didn't want to continue driving and needed day light to see if my car was safe to drive,

 

I got a fine from the service area operators,

I rang them and told them what happened,

IE the police told me to park there until daylight,

they said no fine was owed under the circumstances,

 

now four years later I get a letter from dcbl saying I owe £184 in fines and costs,

the letter states that high court or bailiff action will not happen,

do I ignore this letter,

I've been told not to respond by letter or phone as that constitutes the start of contract to pay,

 

N/B i was found to be totally blameless for the accident, my car was written off by the insurance company and the driver of the car that ran in to the back of me was found to be 100% at fault for the accident, 

 

The service area I parked in was closed while I was parked in it and I left at 6am before the service area was opened at 8am,

 

RECAP . . .the police tell me park there, the owners say they did not want the fine due to the circumstances, dcbl say they want payment four years later,

Hello and welcome to CAG.

 

Are the service area operators a private parking company?

reply to honeybee13, are the service area operators a private parking company? 

 

no, the service area is owned by a petrol sales company, shell, but they use/or did use a private company to monitor their service area, a company who fit a camera to monitor who uses the area,

 

there was a notice stating parking was only allowed to customers of the service area, but where that notice was is not clear as i did not see it,

 

i did read online that the company who monitored the cameras and issued the fines had gone in to administration, but i'm not 100% sure about that, when i received notice of the parking fine in 2016.

 

i rang them up explaining that the police told me to park there and i left before it was open to the public, and they said under the circumstances i did not have to pay the fine,

 

then four years later dcbl say they want £180 in fines and costs,

 

i feel that hey are being unreasonable to say the least.  .  .

they are not fines.

 

its a speculative invoice with unlawful added charges for other companies involvement

 

DCBL can't do a thing to you.

Totally ignore DCBL.

 

As usual thay are talking out of the wrong end of thie bodies.

You were authorised by the Police to park there. End of.

Plus your car was not driveable anyway so not parked.

 

I assume that the notice you received four years ago was probably from a car parking group of crooks rather than the actual garage service operator.

 

Please do not worry about it, whoever is using DCBL to pursue does not have a leg to stand on.

 

Should you get a Letter of Claim from the parking Company let us know and we will advise you on your next move.

Otherwise just forget about it.

you ignore DCBL, they dont have any interest in anything, they just get paid for writing scary letters.

 

As for the so called creditor- they cant resurrect this after that time as they have mitigated the debt anyway but have undoubtedly just downloaded a lot of old stuff from their computer and handed it to DCBL

 

That in itself may cause them data protection problems but let them waste their time and money rather than you putting effort in banging your head against their very thick brick wall
