Hi,

I too was issued with a Charge Notice from Highview for Edward Street car park dated the 18/11/12 which like many people received on Xmas Eve after a long day at work. Obviously I threw my ticket away after all that time but I do have my bank statements. I've no intention of paying.
After looking on the lots of different forums, hundreds of people have been affected in the last couple of months - but the Yorkshire Evening Post is running a story on this in the next couple of weeks. I contacted a journalist who is ringing tomorrow and I would urge all those in the same situation to do the same - hopefully the word will spread and innocent paying customers will see what a bunch of cowboys they are and park elsewhere!

Default High View Parking Company Scam

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO STAY IN SCOTLAND
This law is apparently only applicable in England and Wales as of 1/10/12 but as its a private company I do not think they have the ability to enforce this law anywhere in the UK.

Don't ignore your letter though - complain!!
Email highviewparking@appealpcn.co.uk highlighting that it is outrageous that they send these letters for car parks with EH post codes such as Almondvale ( Scotland ) whilst stating on the letter an enforced law in England/Wales. Scottish Car Parks should be removed from thier system of automated scare mongering letters. England and Wales have my sympathy.

The advice to ignore if its your own vehicle applies to all of the UK, the change in law doesn't make these fake tickets suddenly enforceable. They are still an illegal penalty in as I said the whole UK. Complaining to highview or any parking company is pointless in this regard, you will have them in stitches and they will send you letter rejecting your appeal

If you are to complain, do it to the right people. Here is who to complain to

1) Retailers or service providers such as hospitals etc
2) Landlords or management agents
3) DVLA / ICO
4) Trading Standards
5) The press
6) MCOL if issuing a claim

Who not to complain to as its pointless, unless you intend to use popla

1) Parking companies
2) bpa
3) debt collectors / parking company agents

I know the car park well, was taken over twice if not three times last year, then up went the cameras without PP for starters.

Was there today paid for two hrs but was there longer than anticipated, so with it being anpr controlled just cover your number plate up as you exit the car park - they then have no record of you leaving the car park so cannot chase you same goes for all other anpr controlled car parks, as you exit cover the number plate up - remembering to uncover it again once back on the public highway.
You may click thanks if you found my advice useful

Default Highview Parking Charges Exposed!

I wrote earlier regarding my Charge Notice that I received on Christmas Eve - well the whole debacle has been covered in the Yorkshire Evening Post!

Because I'm a newbie I can't add links but if you go the the Yorkshire Evening Post website and search for the journalist Sophie Hazan, it's the most recent story she's written.

They're obviously trying to cover their tracks in my opinion, but worth a read!
