Devere Windscreen PCN claimform - residential parking - Bournemouth


Recommended Posts

hi all

 

I received a PCN just before xmas, I forgot to display my parking permit where I live, just one flipping day

 

I wrote to the parking company and explained to them that it was just a moment of forgetfulness 

 

they have now taken this to small claims court

 

I have some questions

 

they  issued the court claim in wrong name (correct address, and reg)

 

plus the original fine and what they put on court claim is different amount

 

fine = 108

 

they put 116 on court claim form?

 

how do I stand from these incorrect details?

 

should I defend?

 

 

 

all advice welcome, thanks

Yes, you should definitely defend.  From a legal point of view these "residential parking" claims are the easiest to see off.  Not displaying the permit just one day when they should know you & the car is "de minimis".  You almost certainly have Supremacy of Contract too if the parking space comes with your accommodation.

 

BTW, it's not a fine, a private company can't fine you, it's an invoice.

 

How "wrong" is the name?

 

If they've made up extra charges then yes, that is more ammo against them.

 

Pity you appealed as you probably outed yourself as the driver and lost POFA protection, but you still have enough to easily see off the fleecers.

 

DId they send you a Letter Before Claim/Letter Before Action before starting the court claim?

Yes.  The fleecers have got the keeper's details from the DVLA - but they don't know who the driver was.  Lots of people drive other people's cars.  My son often drives mine.  Therefore appealing is never a good idea given (a) the PPCs never, ever accept appeals and (b) invariably the motorist outs themselves as the driver.

 

The PPCs got parliament to pass Schedule 4 of the Protection of Freedom Act 2012 where liability can be passed from the driver to the keeper, but only if they respect certain timescales in which to send out their documentation and only if the documentation is phrased in a certain way, but the PPCs hardly ever bother with this as they're not interested in the law, they're interested in bullying and lying so as to get motorists to pay monies that aren't owed.

 

I didn't mention POFA to be critical or negative, more as a note to learn from the experience in the future, especially as lots of other motorists will read your thread.

 

You're still in an excellent position as explained in post 2 re "de minimis" and Supremacy of Contract, plus I bet the fleecers signage is rubbish and they'll have invented extra fees too.

 

When you get a minute, please post up what dx requested.

thanks for updated replies

 

I will try to upload requested data today

 

FTMDave, thanks too. 

 

the date of the court letter is 7th Jan, so I have until the 21st Jan to submit defense is that correct?

 

does this time period also account for how long one has to acknowledge the claim?

 

I will do this by end of this week anyhow, just want to clarify time scales

Also look at your Lease agreement for the property, especially around allocation and use of Parking spaces, this is often where the fleecer messes up, with stuff like Supremacy of Contract.

We could do with some help from you.

In order to give you as much ammunition as possible could you please complete the following 

I see you got a windscreen ticket first so there may be problems with their timingsthat can help your case.

There are strict time limits applicable to various parts of the collection process, so they must wait for a certain time after a windscreen ticket before sending a Notice To keeper, a different time limit applies where it was a carpy ANPR capture, and they often mess up and confuse the two thereby potentially making any court case unviable..

Yes- the Protection of Freedoms Act allows parking companies to pursue the keeper if the driver does not pay the PCN.

 

however in order to do that the parking companies have to comply with the Act. If they don't they can only pursue the driver not the keeper and PoFA will not apply.

 

Also if their wording of their Notice to Keeper and Driver fail to comply with the Act, PoFA may not apply. So by answering the questionnaire more revelations may be discovered that could make your case stronger which may mean that they will not turn up in Court and/or may enable you to claim a breach of your GDPR

 

  thus turning the tables on them as you  are then able to claim money from them and more than they are claiming from you.
