Smart ANPR PCN - Faulty Machine - Bell Centre Melton MowbrayParking Ltd


Recommended Posts

This morning I received a letter from DR+ demanding £170. The date of parking charge was 23/10/20. The letter says they have 'traced' me to this address because letters sent by Smart to the address the DVLA hold for me, were not answered.

 

At this point I should point out I moved from Surrey to Leicestershire in 2018 and I registered a change of address with the DVLA. My driving licence is this address and though I have been unable to find it today, I am pretty sure I would have changed my address on my V5.

 

Now, I can confirm I was at the car park when they said and yes, no payment was made because despite trying several times, the one and only machine said "Cancelled. Printing error". I know because I photographed it, just in case.

 

I gather I ignore this demand but I have never had a parking problem so I would be very grateful if you could advise me of my next move please.

Well done on taking the photo - fantastic work!

 

That will be curtains for the fleecers.

 

Don't worry about DR+, they have no power to do anything.

 

I'm just concerned about Smart potentially having the wrong address, and that later down the line they could issue a court claim and win by default, as you'd know nowt about it.  How about writing a simple two-line letter to Smart quoting their silly invoice number and informing them of your new address?

 

 

We could do with some help from you.

Send Smart a two-line letter informing them of your new address.  It will save you from the threat of a backdoor CCJ later on.

 

As for DR+, just laugh at their standard letters.
