VCS Spycar PCN PAPLOC now Claimform - No Stopping - Bristol Airport


Recommended Posts

Hi and welcome to the forum. 

I think this will be the questionnaire that helps us know what VCS have done wrong. 

https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/391121-have-you-received-a-parking-ticket/

 

In the meantime please do not appeal as VCS never admit they are wrong and they are greedy grasping crooks.

Thanks for posting back so quickly.

 

The parking crooks such as VCS have to abide by the Protection of Freedoms Act if they wish to transfer a parking liabilityfrom the driver to the Keeper. They have complied with PoFa by getting the NTK to you within the specified time. I never understand why they bother to get that right then totally balls up the wording of the PCN which means their PCN does not transfer the liability..

 

As they have failed to trensfer the liability to the keeper  it is important not to divulge who was driving. That is why we advise not to appeal beacuse it is all to easy to say" I stopped" rather "than the driver stopped ". The firsr example gives the game away as to who was driving.

 

The other reason not to appeal is that neither VCS nor the IAS want to allow any appeal as they lose money when they cancel PCNs regardless of the legality of the PCN in the first place.

 

Part of their PCN wording that is wrong  is that they  asay they will pursue you on the basis that they assume you were driving . No court in the land accepts that posssibility, VCS have to prove beyond reasonable doubt who was driving.

 

There are other things wrong with the PCN and looking at where they photographed your car, it was on a council maintained road and therefore subject to the Road Traffic Act which is an area not covered by the Protction of Freedom act. So no offence committed by your car stopping there as far as VCS are concerned. That will not stop them and their unregulated debt collectors pursuing you for ever increasing unlawful amounts of money. So just ignore them happy in your own mind that they cannot touch you and they are wasting their money.

 

I am including PoFA schedule 4  section 9 [2] which begins "The Notice must... and must is very important when it involves the Law.  So if you read from 9 [2] [a] to [f] you will see how the wording deviates from your Notice to Keeper thus rendering it non compliant and that lets the keeper off the hook.

WWW.LEGISLATION.GOV.UK

In the interim, could you please check with the Council that the road your car was stopped on was one of theirs and then complain bitterly to them as to why they are allowing them to atttempt to over rule the Council signs since what VCS are doing is tantamount to fraud . Also please check with the planning portal to see if they have planning permission to have erected their signs. 

 

Another thing is to see if you can get photos of where the car was stopped-without getting done by VCS and get the name of the road making it easier to identify the road for the Council and at the same time check that VCS have got the postcode right since if they have that wrong that is another reason for you not to pay.

 

Once you have those details we may be able to start hitting them hard.

Wow, thanks for the very concise reply. 
The alleged offence ocurred at 5am in pitch black, the vehicle was booked to park in the Meet & Greet car park but there were no signs anywhere within the airport site as to where that was. A 30 second stop to check the booking revealed it was within the Drop & Go car park. 
The place where the car stopped was outside the Hampton hotel which does have a different post code to the one stated on the CN.

None of which will make any difference to these parking scammers!

Since the initial CN I have had a final reminder (24/11), a demand for payment (13/12) & a final demand (29/12).

I have not appealed or engaged in any contact & VCS are still chasing me as the registered keeper. Driver has not been revealed. Now saying debt is £170.

Today (14/1/22) I received a Letter Before Claim, is this more cage rattling? Is this different to a Letter Before Action?

Basically do I need to do anything yet?

 

I had cause to visit Bristol Airport recently at a similar time in the hours of darkness so I have kept my dash cam footage. There is no way that even at 15mph in the dark could any driver read more than 25% of the No Stopping sign at the entrance. I can’t see how you can breach a contract that you cannot reasonably read before entry?

How about:

 

Name

Address

 

VCS Ref

 

Thank you for your Letter Before Claim received 14th Jan 2022

 

I do not owe you anything so will not be paying.

 

Your claim has no basis in law

 

Either take me to court or drop your claim. Stop sending Final Demand letters, you are wasting your time.

That communicates the essential stuff.

 

Generally we make the letters snottier to show Simple Simon you would be a tough opponent in court and would cost him, so best to leave you in peace and look for a mug who would just cough up instead.

 

Have a look at post 38 at  https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/441307-vcs-spycar-pcn-no-stopping-jla-liverpool-airport/page/2/#comment-5142779  You'll need to adapt it as it was sent to solicitors representing Simple Simon and it was a second Letter Before Claim but the meat of the snotty letter is there.                       

 

We could do with some help from you.
