    • Hi everyone, I has the pleasure this morning of receiving the attached NTK from "MET Parking Services Ltd" regarding the now infamous Starbucks car park near Stansted Airport. Obviously it is not compliant with Schedule 4 of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 as it was sent more than 14 days after the alleged contravention.  I have seen on various other forums that people have been successfully appealing these via POPLA (https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/discussion/6507793/challanging-parking-ticket-issed-by-med-parking-in-stansted-mcdonalds-starbucks-southgate-park) -- is this worth doing or should I just ignore and keep an eye out for any subsequent letter of claim?   Date of the infringement 02/03/2024 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 09/04/2024  Date received 12/04/2024 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [Y/N?] No Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Yes Have you appealed? [Y/N?] post up your appeal] No Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up N/A - not appealed Who is the parking company? MET Parking Services Where exactly [carpark name and town] (346) Southgate Park, Stansted, CM24 1PY For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. BPA/POPLA Thank you in advance for your help.

    • Just wondering if someone can offer some advice. Before I knew about this forum I ended up with a CCJ. I agreed a payment of X per month with the Court and it was agreed and that payment has been kept up to date, except for a period last year from Sep to Dec whereby I was held on suspicion of a crime in Norway (later acquitted I might add) but for 3 months and as such had no way of maintaining the payments each month with no access to be able to make the transfers to these parasitic wasps. When I returned, I paid the 3 months I was behind and have since continued to maintain the payments that was agreed by the Court originally. I have never received any notification or demand from the Court regarding the period I was unable to pay and haven't to date. However, I received this below by email today - not sure how they got my email but perhaps from this original debt as the Original creditor may have passed it on to them. Any thoughts on this please? "The County Court Judgment (CCJ) granted on 11-2018 remains unpaid therefore our client is considering enforcement action. Despite sending you previous reminders, you have failed to engage with us and set up an affordable payment plan for £2444.21 which means our client could instruct us to take further action in the next 14 days. If our client instructs us to apply for a Warrant of Control, a County Court Bailiff could visit you at home to discuss payment of the outstanding balance. Alternatively, our client may instruct us to enforce by way of a Charging Order which will result in the Court securing the outstanding debt against any beneficial interest you hold in a property. This means our client will recover the debt when you come to sell or remortgage your property. Our client may also request an Attachment of Earnings which will result in the Court ordering your employer to deduct payment directly from your wages. In order to avoid this, you must either make a one-off payment of £2444.21 or set up a payment plan with us within 14 days."  
    • Actually you making me go back and double check the Arnold Clark thing rang a bell and the trust took all the payments off my wages. 2 months £111 & 2 months at £115. Im fairly sure that means its paid off?
    • nothing to be scared about at sll... what are you scared over ... lets get that out the window then p'haps we can be given some logical answers as this is all mad. who is the owner on the cars v5c document?..have you got a copy of it? when someone get's a pcn, it will go to the registered keeper of the car, (as whomever issued the pcn will log a reg number, then ask the dvla whom is said person on their database for a fee)  if the RK are a lease company, the lease company should inform the pcn sender of the details of the named HIRER.  the pcn issuers then must reset everything and write a new pcn to the stated hirer including a copy of the relevant hire agreement. if the hirer was not the driver, then they should write back to the pcn issuer stating who the driver at the time of the PCN was. the PCN issuer should then reset everything again and sent a new pcn to the named driver. thats how things work by LAW. if someone in one of the stages has messed up then any pcn is void. lets just assume that the nhs trust is the hirer, the nhs trust just cant payt any pcn they get whereby they know the driver was you and then dock it from your wages!! thats THEFT!! any PCN is solely a matter between whomever was the DRIVER and the PCN issuer, NOTHING to do with any hire company who should be transparent. nothing to do with your employer the hiree, they should be transparent.  now if the pcn issurer has written to the DRIVER and they fail to pay a PCN , eventually the registered keeper ONLY could be held responsible. but that doesnt fit any of your PCN's esp this one!! neither should pay anything to anyone not doc your wages nor add admin fees. again something is not right here. dx   nothing to do with

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Parking Eye ANPR PCN Claimform - Barnet hospital EN5 3DJ


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am writing with a request for urgent help.

My partner received a private parking ticket for overstaying his time in a hospital carpark when his elderly mother attended A&E.

He was not able to get to the car park to increase the time.

He did not respond to the initial letters as per the usual guidance.

Unfortunately, he did not see the Letter Before County Claim (dated 19/9/23) as he has a busy job and was on holiday for a period during this time.

He just received a county court claim dated 30/10/23.

I am not sure what the options are now.

I can post further details later/tomorrow but wanted to post this as soon as I could.

Many thanks

The PCN does not comply with PoFA. They did not ask that the keeper paid the charge Schedule 4 S9 [2][e]

Also there is no mention of the parking period which is a must. All they give is the arrival and  departure times which are not the same thing. 

So the keeper cannot be pursued for the amount allegedly outstanding. Only the driver is now liable and as anyone with a valid motor insurance policy is allowed to drive that car and that could be anyone out of thousands of drivers. And the Courts do not accept that the keeper and the driver are the same person.

  • I agree 1

Thank you so much.

I am having computer problems but should be able to follow all the advice above with the MCOL when this is resolved tomorrow.

Two further questions

- none of the letters are headed notice to keeper and both the reminder letter are dated more then 14 days after the ‘offence’. Is this another example of lack of compliance or have I misunderstood something here? Does the NTK no longer have to headed this as previously it did?


I agree with post 10 that not opening the letter is the same as ignoring it but was trying to explain how that came about - it was a terrible error on his part.

Thanks

The original letter was entitled Parking Charge Notice and arrived within the 14 days, so I think PE have covered themselves (apart from the points LFI has underlined).

Please "report back" once you have done AOS and CPR, as PE are the one parking company which are currently changing the way they operate and we have to prepare the defence to counter that.  They used to just sue for the £100 + costs but are now making up £20 Unicorn Food Tax and £50 legal representative's costs despite not having a legal representative.  They also go to great pains to attack our defence so it may need to be tweaked.

Just to clarify the legal fee on the claim form is a fee for the issuance of the claim which is standard in all types of claims and not connected the legal representation, that is extra should the claim move to a hearing.

I have run in to a problem with the government gateway as the account list my partner's business address (which he no longer uses) rather than his home address which is on the claim form. I have sent a message on government gateway requesting how to do this. Once I get a reply I will be able to complete the AOS

One other thing from post #11 the PCN and PCN reminders do say "time in car park" 1 hour 46 mins - does that not count as stating a parking period or does that have to be in the NTK?

The CPR letter is prepared & ready to go when the AOS is sorted. I think we may need to get a new GG account for the MCOL if we can't get an answer from the MCOL helpline

Do you think we have a reasonable chance of defending this given the failure to respond to the LBA?

The parking period is from the time when you leave the car parked until the time  you drive the car away.

That is NOT the times you drive past their stupid cameras.

The CPR letter is prepared & ready to go when the AOS is sorted. I think we may need to get a new GG account for the MCOL if we can't get an answer from the MCOL helpline

Sounds like a plan!

Do you think we have a reasonable chance of defending this given the failure to respond to the LBA?

CAG have an 85% success rate helping victims defend themselves, IF, IF, IF, it ever gets to court.

(And it STILL might not).

Not responding to LBA has absolutely no bearing on anything...

The only thing we would have suggested at that stage would be to send an insulting, snotty letter to convince them that, yes you are there and they won't get an easy back door CCJ and that you'll be real trouble in court.

Take a little wander through some threads in our "success" sub forum and educate yourself...

It'll probably give you a few pointers on how to go forward with this.

Update:

AOS now done online. There may be a slight issue receiving correspondence as, although I was assured by the 'helpl'ine that the address the court will use will be the one they sent the original claim to,  the acknowledgement of the AOS has the old business address on as the correspondence address. I tried to get hold of the court on the phone without success. Am also trying to get the address updated via email but none of the people involved seem to understand the issue or their own systems! We usually get correspondence from that address forwarded anyway so hopefully should be ok

Have also now posted the CPR request first class and have proof of posting.

Thanks again all

Not replying to the LBA is neither here nor there regarding the success, or not, of PE's claim.

PE have previous for having rubbish signage in hospital car parks in order to catch out motorists, so if the hospital is local it would be useful to go back and get photos of the signs, both close up and how they would appear to someone driving in.

Can you go into more detail about what happened?  For example how long he overstayed, why he was not able to get to the car park to increase the time, etc.  This might open useful avenues.  It may even be possible to get the hospital authorities involved.

The time in the car park does not equal a parking period as it takes time to find a bay and park.  There are consideration and grace periods to consider.

The hospital is not that close but we should be able to get some photos over the next couple of weeks. I will try to see if any of the issues below are addressed on the signs.

The plot thickens as I have just checked the credit card statement which says £2.20 was paid on that date to paybyphone.

I have just checked the hospital website re parking charges and it says 0-1 hour is £2 and 1-3 hours is £3. I am a bit confused at the £2.20 but maybe they charge extra for using PaybyPhone?

The website also says they have changed the system to allow payment for extra time after the event. However, I don't know when this option became available - certainly the driver was not aware of this. Not sure if one is expected to check the website for this info but I suspect not. I will see if the signs mention it.

There was an expectation that the patient (86 year old) who had been in A&E for some time, was due to be discharged imminently after seeing a doctor. There were unexpected delays and the car park was some distance away from the A&E department. The driver did not want to return to the car and leave the patient alone and miss seeing the doctor. It was all very late at night - as can be seen from the PCN, departure from the carpark was 00:16. At this point the focus was on getting the patient home rather than thinking about the car park charges. The car park was very poorly lit.

I will post photos as soon as I am able to get them. 

Thanks

I asked you this as several hospitals have been fairly decent and intervened positively regarding parking tickets.

I have no idea if Barnet Hospital will do likewise but there is an e-mail address for their PALS here  https://www.royalfree.nhs.uk/contact-us/patient-advice-and-liaison-service-pals

It's well worth your partner contacting them, explaining what happened, and asking that they get the charge cancelled.  Explain he paid, that he couldn't abandon an 86-year-old vulnerable person, that there was no way to pay the extra quid, etc.

The CEO is Deborah Sanders but I can't find an e-mail address for her  https://www.royalfree.nhs.uk/about-us/our-hospital-leadership-teams

The problem is that, even if Barnet Hospital are decent, PE will say they "are unable" to cancel the charge as it's reached claim form stage, but in that case (a) you'd have evidence for the court that PE had been told to cancel and (b) they are likely to offer you a heavy discount (which you wouldn't be forced to accept, but the offer would be there).

A Cagger found that NHS guidance is that charges should be cancelled if medical care takes longer than expected - I'll see if I can find the thread.  But in any case, get a mail off to PALS tomorrow.

I've found the link and the paragraph to quote -

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/nhs-patient-visitor-and-staff-car-parking-principles/nhs-patient-visitor-and-staff-car-parking-principles

Trusts should consider installing ‘pay on exit’ or similar schemes so that drivers pay only for the time that they have used. Additional charges should only be imposed where reasonable [footnote 3] and should be waived when overstaying is beyond the driver’s control (such as when treatment takes longer than planned, or when staff are required to work beyond their scheduled shift).

Thanks both.

I will send the email from my email address so the PE don't get one for my partner. We have different surnames so that should hopefully help with anonymity. Should I mention that it is at the court stage? If so I will explain that the LBA was overlooked

Dear PALS

I am writing because we have received a parking charge notice from Parking Eye. My partner's vulnerable, 86 year old mother was admitted to A&E on 25/7/23. As a busy medical professional himself, my partner only managed to get to A&E at 22:30 that night, with a plan to have a quick discussion about mother's care with one of the doctors, and take her home. Another family member had been with her until that time. My partner bought a parking ticket for one hour which was believed to be sufficient. Unfortunately, by the time my partner returned to the car, driven it from the parking bay which was some way away from the A&E exit, collected mother from A&E and helped her to the car, my partner didn't leave the carpark until 00:16. It was late, the car park was dark and my partner wanted to get mother home and settled, before driving home and getting up early for work. The parking situation didn't seem a priority at the time.

In these circumstances I am writing to request that you cancel the parking fine. The government guidance recommends a pay on exit scheme which would be much fairer for all concerned - see quote from the website below:

Trusts should consider installing ‘pay on exit’ or similar schemes so that drivers pay only for the time that they have used. Additional charges should only be imposed where reasonable [footnote 3] and should be waived when overstaying is beyond the driver’s control (such as when treatment takes longer than planned, or when staff are required to work beyond their scheduled shift).

I think you can agree that, given a ticket was purchased, there was no intention not to pay for the parking, despite the delay this caused in actually getting in to the hospital.

Many thanks for your assistance

Yours etc
