    Parking Eye - Nasty tricks 23rd Feb 10 at 10:42 AM
    If you get a Parking Charge Notice from Parking Eye heres a nasty trick to watch out for.

    I had one issued early Feb telling me to pay the "reduced" rate of 50 within 14 days otherwise it would be the full rate of 80
    Stupidly I phoned them, mainly to establish where the car park was. I asked if I would get to see the photographic evidence before the 14 days was up and I was assured that I would.
    Well 14 days passed and lo and behold. no photographic evidence
    Then, came a letter with the photos dated 11 days after the first reminding me that I had 4 days left to pay the 50 rate
    Only this letter arrived in my letterbox 2 days beyond that deadline meaning I was too late anyway

    Thier first letter took 4 days to get to me after it was dated
    The second letter took a week

    I very rarely get 1st class mail coming later than one day and second class 2 days to get to me so delaying tactics must be their game.
    I think that they must sit on the letters a few days between dating and sending them in order to create a sense of urgency
