OPS ANPR PCN - Llangrannog Car Park overstay


Recommended Posts

Hello

 

For background on holiday in Wales and looking for somewhere to eat. Came to the car park, spotted a pub and went to check if serving food however didn't see the queue round the corner. Thought we would wait as queue moving and if staying try to buy a parking ticket but then said no room at the inn so back to the car and left. Times goes and we didn't notice it was 17 mins. Received PCN few days later.  Haven't corresponded with them nor appealed and know it's not a fine (have read other posts) so grateful for any advice. Didn't take photos so no evidence.

 

 

1 Date of the infringement

07/09/2021
 

2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date]

3 Date received

Llangrannog car park is notorious for the over issue of PCNs.

 

If you put in its name followed by "Charges" or "Fines" on line you will see many entries and the local newspapers have taken on OPS. Their machine was not working for a while so the company gave a phone number to call and pay. Sadly for motorists the phone signal wasn't good enough.

 

Then a lawyer found out that apparently when the machine was fixed, the time wasn't right so that people including her were charged for overstaying, when they hadn't . She went to court and won but of course many people just paid up, In your case, even their own photos show you weren't parked. Waiting for a parking spot is not parking. 

 

As dx100uk says just sit on your hands and see if they can take the heat. You will get lots of letters putting up the price with no legal justification and  endless unregulated debt collectors saying the same thing. It is completely safe to ignore them all. Perhaps several months down the line or maybe several years down the line they might pluck up the courage to threaten you with Court-a letter headed something like Letter Before Action. then come back to us and we will advise you from there.

 

Only a small proportion of motorists get taken to court and they tend to be mostly the ones who write when they are innocent. This tells OPS that they will probably pay up at least £100 if threatened. So just ignore them and they may well pass you by.

Yes have seen the posts about this car park on here and FB, as well as about the lawyer who took them on. Another robdog company catching people. We stopped at a few other places many with honesty boxes for parking and more than happy to pay as it goes toward the local community etc. 

Anyways we will wait for the inevitable letters and definitely come back if I get a LBA.

The first final demand so added to the files...funny the way they suggest might want to seek advice from the National Debt Line (what debt?) or the CCCS (what credit and don't need counselling thanks)!
