I regularly park (Legally) in a small, private car park that was recently taken over by ES Parking.

 

I noticed that when they erected the signs they were very high, probably 9 to 10 feet on the outer walls of the building. There are no signs at the entrance. Signs are only visible once a vehicle has entered the car park. When I saw the signs being erected, I noticed that at the height they were set above eye level, they could not be easily read from the footpath.

 

I am a highly qualified graphic artist and typographer with over 40 years experience. Please see the attached photograph. (sorry, this platform won't allow jpegs, how odd! See my profile picture) Anyone with a physical impairment, such as arthritis or similar or a wheelchair user would struggle to read these signs.

 

I presume that if these signs are judged to be inadequate or not fit for purpose, then anyone who has paid a penalty would be entitled to their money back? What think you?

Hello, welcome to CAG.

 

Your picture doesn't seem to have made it onto the thread, unfortunately.

 

Regarding your comment on jpegs, we stopped using them because our users' information was less secure than it is in a pdf.

 

Best, HB

Your conclusions about the fleecers' signs is spot on.  This is typical of these charlatans.  Take over a car park, put a small number of signs where no-one will see them, and so catch regular users out.  The government Code of Practice states that extra signs should be put up to show a change of management of the car park.  Of course they'll have done none of this.

In what sense entitled?  The spivs certainly won't give money back.  Anyone in that position could sue the fleecers, but a judge would want to know why they paid if they didn't think they owed the money.

 

The solution with these vile companies is always the same - don't pay them.

It seems to me that if we can find a disabled person who had difficulty with this then we could help them to bring an action under the equality Act .

 

That would set the cat amongst the pigeons

So, are you expecting a ticket Speedjawa?

 

And are there ANPR cameras at the entrance?

I got one!

Even though I had my legal permit displayed in the front of my car.

It was flat on the dashboard but the camera angle couldn't see it.

 

Obviously the camera operator could, but that don't make any dosh!

 

I have full proof of payment through both my bank records and the records and accounts held by the church that own the land.

 

They have started court proceedings so any help and advice would be gladly accepted.

It is getting me down a bit.

 

I'm trying to get over a stage 3 cancer, a heart bypass caused by chemo and this morning I got the news that I may need another bypass op.

 

As you can see, the last thing I need is ES Parking.

I have been a Belle Vue Aces fan all my life. I rode a Hagon JAP in grasstrack racing in the 70's.

 

I must admit - I'm struggling with the way this site works. Do you need anything else other than the attached PDF?

 

 

Just about to post off the 2 PDF pages that I sent to Nicky Boy. These were emailed to me by the court. As you can see, I don't want a counterclaim. I was parked legally and should not have to pay a penalty to these criminals.

 

Filed out defence on my N9 form.

 

Legally parked, permit displayed at Crossgate Church, Landmark, St Mary's Street North, Preston PR1 5LG.
As I work at HMP Preston, I have used the car park for quite a few years and always pay in advance to park there. I think
the price of £3.00 per day to park in a ctly is very fair. plus the church benefit.


'then I received the penalty notice I thought it may have been a scam. I was fully paid up so why would I gel a penalty
notice? The fine was £100. An extremely inflated figure.

 

My permit was on view on the dashboard, forward of the steering column and could be seen clearly by anyone approaching my vehicle either from the front, or especially from the offside.


From the day I received my permit It was rarely put on the windscreen. The first permits issued were quite large and so
obscured the HUD projector. Worst of all, I would forget it was there, drive off and at the first right turn the permit would
slide across the dash and get lost. This happened too many limes.

 

In 2020 I was diagnosed with Oesophageal cancer. This led to a 9 hour operation 10 remove a large tumor. A few months later in 2021 . It was discovered chemotherapy had caused blocked arteries and so in 2022 I had open heart surgery. I am still in recovery until 2025 when, hopefully. I'll be given the all clear. Although I was declared fit to drive t wasn't in any fit state to go hunting amongst the upholstery searching for a parking permit!

 

This is why my permit was on the dashboard in a perfectly visible position from outside and which I couldn't miss when I got into my vehicle. The low camera angle used in the claimant's photographs fail to show what was perfectly visible closer to the vehicle and from a slightly higher viewpoint. 


it is very upsetting that I would often see the Parking attendant when he did his afternoon patrol of the car park.. He knew
me and knew which was my car and so must have seen my permit many times over the previous weeks. I find it extremely
annoying that calculated slight of hand with a camera has put me in the position of having to defend myself when I have
done nothing wrong.


The stress this is causing is incalculable. Since my illness I now work only two and a half days per week with retirement
imminent and can't afford to pay fines - that's why I pay in advance to park.


If you want to see proof of my payments to Crossgate Church, please contact Gill Wright. at the Church. She too could not
understand why I had been issued with a parking fine.

Hold off on posting just now.

 

There's a standard bland defence we recommend using.

 

Also, It's usually easier to use the MCOL online portal for the process.

 

DX will probably chime in with his instructions...

I am so sorry to hear of the problems you are having with your health. I wish you a speedy recovery.

 

If you are sure that the permit was on the dashboard on that day you have a very good chance of getting them for breaching your GDPR. That will cost them a lot more than the unlawful claim against you.

 

Is is possible that you could please post up the original PCN front and back since there are often mistakes made by the parking rogues that are sufficient to make it difficult for them to win .

What is MCOL?

I don't have the original PCN.

However, I think it would be illegal for them not to let me have a copy of the original form if it got to the court stage.

 

GDPR was something I thought of.

I work for a college, inside a prison.

 

GDPR is a nightmare as we deal with prisoners.

I have often thought it wrong that private information such as names and addresses should be given to companies like ES Parking.

 

I would like to know how they store this information. I'm told the consequences are dire if a company makes a GDPR mistake.

 

My parking permit lives in my car and is, in fact, viewable at all times, even if it's not in the window.

 

When I park it sits on the dashboard.

 

These original tickets were large so couldn't be slotted into the screen like the new "Tax Disc" size permits.

 

The problem is that these people want the money  - if the camera can't see it - it isn't there.

 

Which, as we are all aware is oh deary me!!

DX,

Not sure a defence has been submitted yet,

Speed said he was about to mail it in post 14, but I asked him to hold back for advice.

 

The two uploads POC and Defence have also disappeared from post 14...

 

One of which Speed has added again above.
