Hi all. 

I received a PCN notice to keeper from Alliance Parking and foolishly appealed in panic before searching for advice.  I now realise that was a mistake as I have admitted to being the driver. So bearing that in mind should I simply pay early to get the discounted charge?

It was rammed in the car park and we had to park up a long hill and then get the kids out etc.

We got to the parking info and the queues were long to pay for parking at the machine so tried on the app on both our phones but with poor signal we gave in and queued.

We paid for 2 hours (see the attached ticket) but of course the machine only puts the time you paid and not the time we entered/drove into the car park (rather a flaw if you are expected to pay as soon as you exit).

 we finally paid at 12:01 and ensured we exited before the 2 hours were up.

If we had realised you need to pay for more time we would have.

From the recorded times they have we were there 2 hours and 11 mins 36s (not 2 hours).

thanks in advance for any advice

It wasn't your problem that there was a queue at the paypoint.

Nor was it your fault that phone signal was carp.

Both of these facts equal "frustration of contract".

I'm sure the others will chime in with other valid reasons not to pay.

If you want to fight this and the fleecers are stupid enough to take it all the way to court, it will take time and some effort. (Several months).

If you just want it to go away, just pay the invoice.

Obviously, we'd love you to fight it and will support you fully. (Forum users have an 85% success rate in court, but it doesn't always get that far).

Your choice.

Take a look through some other threads here to get an idea of what's involved.

thread tidied

yours is not the next move

see if they send a letter of claim.


please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

SeeNTheir PCN does not comply with the Proventon of Freedoms  Act 2012. That means that only the driver is responsible for the charge. And not the keeper.

Had you not appealed you would not have been liable. It is why we suggest you do not appeal. However is all is not lost and many people have fallen into the trap of appealing and thus making life a bit more difficult for themselves.

The main reason that the PCN is not compliant is that they failed to give you the opportunity to pay the charge on behalf of the driver. Many of the parking rogues fail to comply with Act despite it having been in force for eleven years. 

Tells you all you need to know about their mental acuity.

So many of the rogues fail to get the parking period wrong and Alliance are no exception. It seems beyond their pra brains to realise that quoting the arrival and departure times from their SNPR cameras does not reflect the actual parking period.

Travelling from the arrival point to the parking spot and parking it perfectly within the lines can take several minutes. And then driving out the parking spot to beyond the exit camera can take some time if it is a busy period and other cars are also trying to leave at the same time. 

And this does not take into account disabled and elderly people nor those with small children.

So you actual parking period could be five or more minutes less than their time. Coupled with queues at the pay kiosk could well mean that your actual parking time was within the two hour time frame.

On top of that as you paid there is a five minute Consideration period  at the start of the parking to allow time to read the Terms and see if you want to stay. And at the end of the parking period you have a ten minute grace period.

So with all that going on the wazzacks are pushing it by pursuing you for money you do not owe.
