    • 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 Petrol Station PAPLOC now claimform - overstay - Welcome Break Leicester Forest East (North)


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Driving home ill from work I pulled into a service station as I was falling asleep.  I didn't see any signs. 

I didn't go into the car park, just pulled up at the petrol station and fell asleep with my engine running. 

Woke up to a phone call a few hours later, purchased some paracetamol and continued home, went to bed for the next 4 days.  Think I had Covid. 

Now my wife (car in her name) has a PCN through the post from ParkingEye because I was in the car park for 2 hours 15 minutes.

What do you think are the best next steps? 

Appeal?

Ignore?

Thanks

Obvious question to ask is why wait with the appeal until you get a letter of claim?

We all know Parkingeye are no strangers to the court system.

If a claim is issued the court will want to know why you ignored the parking charge notification and did not appeal the ticket with Parkingeye, and POPLA when that appeal is rejected.

 

Just my own opinion, looks like they have you bang to rights for breach of contract so need to seriously consider paying the reduced rate while you can. not to mention any possible court costs on top as well

This isn't our experience, actually. Of all the people we've helped over the years, I don't remember anyone being told off by a judge for not appealing to organisations who are highly unlikely to allow their appeals.

I expect the guys will be along to comment on the 'bang to rights' over breach of contract.

I've just looked at the route I took on Google Street View.

 

There is a sign saying 2 hours free stay (no terms and conditions here) and an anpr camera on the slip road off the motorway. I didn't even see this, would certainly not be able to stop and read it properly.

I didn't enter the car park I went straight past it to the petrol station where there are no signs. The terms and conditions are in the big car park that I didn't enter. I don't know how I would have paid as the details are in the main car park and I could only rejoin the motorway as its a 1 way system.

 

Also don't you get 5 min and 10 mins grace when entering and leaving? Which adds up to my 15 min overstay?

CPR/PAP are designed for ALL county court claims.

sadly on speculative invoices an utter waste of time and more importantly....

simply done to find out the possible contents of your witness statement should it ever get that far if it goes to court.

and to get you to dob yourself in as the driver. FATAL under pofa2012.

there's zero evidence of any judge on any PPC Court claim ever saying i'll make you pay more because you refused CPR/PAP/Mediation.

There is no need to be concerned. The PCN does not comply with the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012  Schedule 4 which governs the private parking companies. Section 9 [e] "state that the creditor does not know both the name of the driver and a current address for service for the driver and invite the keeper-(i)to pay the unpaid parking charges "

In your PCN there is no mention of the above and as a result only the driver is responsible to pay and the keeper cannot be pursued in Court.  As long as PE do not find out who was driving they will find it almost impossible to get a result should it ever end up in Court since so many people are able to drive other people's cars.

It is also one reason not to appeal. First, some of the parking companies ask the keeper to say whether they were driver. On top of that it is so easy to say "I parked the car .." rather than "the driver parked the car.."giving away sometimes ones strongest winning reason to have the PCN quashed.

This is the issue I am having since you quoted 

Section 9 [e] "state that the creditor does not know both the name of the driver and a current address for service for the driver and invite the keeper-(i)to pay the unpaid parking charges "

Realise Scotland And Northern Ireland are different being devolved administrations so will concentrate on England and Wales.

 

s9(2)(f)(II) states 

the creditor will (if all the applicable conditions under this Schedule are met) have the right to recover from the keeper so much of that amount as remains unpaid; 

This is known as Keeper Liability under Schedule 4 Protection of Freedoms Act 2012

I agree with dx, HB and LFI.

Parking Eye know full well you were within the consideration & grace periods and so they should not be sending you their demand - but they hope you don't know so they can fleece you.

It's pretty obvious what their reaction to an appeal would be.

However, some of the companies who call in the PPCs are excellent at getting the invoices cancelled - and some are plain useless - but in any case it's worth e-mailing the CEO of Welcome Break  https://www.ceoemail.com/s.php?id=ceo-12111&c=Welcome Break-Chief Executive  point out you were ill and asleep, but that you still left within the consideration & grace periods, and ask them to get the invoice cancelled.  Nothing ventured ...

We could do with some help from you.

No more money  PE did not include one of the applicable conditions [asking the keeper to pay] so they lose the benefit to them of being able to legally pursue the keeper.

You can relax knowing that the keeper is off the hook.
