    UKCPS and winning in court

    UKCPS and winning in court 12th Oct 10 at 12:25 PM
    WARNING
    There seems to be alot of court cases on forums happening with UKCPS. As far I can can say there has been no proof of a court case given. Most posters are new to the site they are posting on.

    They can be dismissed as TROLLS.

    Should a case ever go to court in the unlikelyhood that it does, you will receive a solid defence from at least 3 forums, any private parking company that has chanced their arm and come up against a solid defence has lost. The others that they have won has gone down as gaining a win by default(no defence filed - as papers didnt turn up) or it was a setup to try and gain a precident.

    It is still safe to ignore these invoices.

    Please take a minute to look at these posts and how they are trolls.

    Google UKCPS

    Posts under consumer action group

    And also Pepipoo.

    I all have learnt is from others on many sites.
    Seek legal help if unsure.
    Dont pay Private Parking tickets - they are mere invoices.

    I'd let the trolls post, in the end they only disprove their own points, the truth will out always. They only scare people who skim read and read the first post.

    9.9.2 Charge offenders for the administrative costs of identifying and removing their posts at the rate of £40 per hour necessarily spent plus any external costs that we incur.

    9.9.3 Take legal action to recover these costs.

    How naive you lot are. UKCPS has won more court cases than I have had hot dinners (and I have had a few of those). All ignore gets you is a big fat CCJ. Barely a week goes by without another legendary UKCPS court win.

    We particularly like facing the "Eagles". Never lost against them yet

    Have you thought of using names other than Peter to troll? Or would that be too obvious? Still unable to provide case numbers and any more than a list of 4 I see, which are probably bogus.

    As yet no conclusive evidence of a single win by UKCPS, despite the claims of numerous.

    Prove it with proper court case numbers.

    Oh wait, you can't do that because they don't exist as your making up random names and locations.

    Any case numbers yet? The pointless posts do nothing other than to prove your only methods involve scare power. Still no conclusive wins for UKCPS.

    I have some cases where UKCPS brought a case and lost.

    ukcps/O'Reilly - Leeds
    ukcps/Shelly - Huddersfield
    ukcps/Cleveland - Sidcup
    ukcps/Griffin - London
    ukcps/Cameron - Birmingham
    ukcps/Hamilton - Liverpool

    See random names and places mean nothing. Cases above are fake, including peter's, unless they can be substantiated.

    Come on Peter, answer my question. How many appeals have the "ethical UKCPS" allowed when simple mistakes made by disabled drivers? I am sure you chums at Mobilise would like to know as well.

    Ahahahahah Your name sums you up altogether especially the last syllable.

    Anyway perky of the pies this is what i stick on hundreds and hundreds of cars in supermarket car parks...........fnaar fnaar

    PRIVATE PARKING TICKETS - DON'T PAY!
    IT IS NOT A FINE! YOU HAVE DONE NOTHING ILLEGAL!

    This is an information page for the thousands of people who receive "tickets" from private companies in the UK ever day at supermarkets, retail parks, and in any other privately-owned carpark.

    We are NOT encouraging anybody to openly flout parking restrictions on private land, or to refuse to pay reasonable charges for parking. Landowners have a right to make reasonable charges for the use of their land.

    For advice specific to your case, you should visit the forums at http://forums.pepipoo.com or http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/parking-traffic-offences.

    http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/forumdisplay.php?f=163

    1. What you should know about these companies

    It is important to remember that private parking companies (or PPCs as they are often called) have NO OFFICIAL POWERS - that's right, none at all! They give out their "tickets" on the basis that you have seen the signs in their car park and that you have therefore agreed to a contract obliging you to pay a certain sum of money.


    2. What happens to people who don't pay?

    In 99.9% of cases, absolutely NOTHING! The company pays the DVLA £2.50 to get your address, and then sends lots of threatening letters. In the main, these letters can be safely IGNORED. The only way the company can actually force you to pay is by taking you to the small claims court, which costs them even more money. And they are by no means guaranteed to win! And they practically never do.

    The two main reasons for this (among others) are the following:

    - Only the person DRIVING the car could ever have agreed to any such parking contract. The company can only get the Registered Keeper's address from the DVLA: you don't have to tell them who was driving.

    -Many of these charges are so extortionately high that they constitute a penalty, which is unenforceable in a consumer contract.


    3. Can they affect my credit rating?

    NO! The only way your credit rating could be affected by ignoring private parking companies is if you were taken to court, lost, and then still refused to pay. But they will not take you to court.


    IN SHORT

    The vast majority of the time, you can safely IGNORE tickets from private parking companies, they are not official fines.

    The vast majority of the time, you can safely IGNORE the threatening letters, including those from debt collection agencies.

    You DO NOT have to pay a penny of your hard-earned money to these companies. Remember that the chances of being taken to court are very slim indeed.

    DO NOT IGNORE COURT PAPERS!
    If you receive real court papers from a private parking company (very rare) then you should go to http://forums.pepipoo.com or http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/parking-traffic-offences for help defending the claim. Do not be afraid to sign up and ask questions regarding any paperwork you are not sure about.



    Don’t believe the above? Watch a solicitor on Watchdog advising you what to do with the scam invoices.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAIcdi9niHA

    THEY ARE NOT FINES

    Only the Police, Courts or Council’s can fine you. NOT a private company, please remember that.


    It would be nice to know if someone posts on here as found one on their windscreen. usually Huddersfield and Morley.

    Read it and weep perky.

    Why don't you just quietly carry on taking people to court (lol as the kids say), surely its more profitable!

    In the meantime find a large stone.

    Besides, in the end, when they start taking cases to court, they will be recognised for what they are, and with the amount of court time being wasted by PPC's, a nice firm end will be put to their scams. Surprised it hasn't happened already TBH, clamping will see its end soon, PPC's will be next.

    The reasons behind recommending to not contact are:

    a) it may reveal you as being tlhe driver or be seen as an admission of guilt - this may go against you, and increase the probability of them bringing a court case if you can be identified. Remember, all the plastic parking officer saw and is likely to have taken a picture of is your car, and not you. They cannot prove you were driving, then we move to the registered keeper versus driver debate. Only the driver could have agreed to any contract, the registered keeper is merely the registered keeper. Anyone could have driven and the keeper is not obligated under law to reveal who was driving to a PPC (the case is different for instance where the Police request the information in NIPs).

    b) it gets them all excited thinking you might cave in and they harass you all the more.

    There have been some cases in the past where those who have had a claim attempt against them in court have told the judge they were advised not to respond to the letters, and the judge was happy with that, and the PPC lost.

    That website is hilarious:

    "Are 'Parking Charges' legal?
    Yes. Parking on private land without permission is tresspass, a Civil offence. It is legal to levy a parking charge which has been notified (by our signs) to motorists. By parking on land we patrol you enter into a contract as indicated by our signage. Motorists do have a legal right of appeal and the parking charge notice gives full details of this."

    One minute it is tresspass (sic) and then it is contract. They don't even know the difference.

    This from a company which has, according to its own propaganda, won court cases. Hmmm.
