    Met parking - need help with popla 11th Jan 14 at 1:48 PM
    Hi, I visited Mcdonalds establishment twice on the same day with each stop no more then 20 minutes. I received a fine from Met Parking service for overstaying (4 hours). I obviously thought they made a mistake and a letter to them would suffice. Unfortunately my initial letter resulted in a response in which they wanted proof in the form of petrol station receipt which I didn't have.
    I decided to contact Mcdonalds and inform them of the situation I was in. However after 2 weeks, I received what I can assume as a generic letter in relation to their car parking queries.

    Long story short I have a POPLA verification code and would like to fight this but need help. What kind of proofs can I provide? Would an affidavit be sufficient from my uncle who I was visiting on the day?

    Thanks
    Kash

    Thanks, unfortunately the link seems to take me back to the same thread i.e. the one I started. Can you please paste the link again?

    This happened on a Sunday, so did not require ticket for parking. It was on my way to my uncles house and on the way back when I entered Mcdonalds. I didn't go anywhere else and this is why I am not aware of any proofs that could help me. Hence I asked, can I get an affidavit from my uncle or is that of no use?

    I have no clue why you would need a link to the sticky threads, which are at the top of the forum you posted on, just ONE click away from here anyway (see my signature, tells you where to click). Also you've missed the other one 'Successful complaints about PPCs', the thread with the examples of lots of MET tickets cancelled by McDonalds local Managers...NO LINK PROVIDED OF COURSE. Please click back as per my signature below, click on the end of the blue 'breadcrumb trail' linky and find the 'stickies' otherwise the forum doesn't work well for newbies.

    You do need to at least know how to get back to page one from any thread you are reading. Once you've done it, you can use any forum and it's easy.

    Hi,
    I am just posting my appeal to POPLA and using one of the standard well written out appeals. What i wanted to ask was, do i include a letter from my aunty to confirm i was visiting her during the time MET Parking claim i was at Mcdonalds? I don't have any other evidence, normally i would need to get a parking ticket outside her house but as the day in question was sunday no such ticket was required.

    The appeal i will be using is

    POPLA CODE xxxxxxxxxx
    As the registered keeper of the vehicle, registration number xxxx xxxx, I wish to appeal against the parking charge issued by MET Parking Services.

    My appeal is based on the following grounds.

    1. No breach of contract and no genuine pre-estimate of loss.


    2. Contract with the landowner – no locus standi.

    3. Notice to Keeper not properly given under POFA 2012 – no keeper liability.


    4. Lack of photographic evidence and unreliable, unsynchronised and non-compliant ANPR system.

    5. Unclear and non-compliant signage, forming no contract with drivers.


    To expand on these points:

    1. No breach of contract and no genuine pre-estimate of loss
    MET Parking Services state in their letter of rejection that the parking charge represents a claim for liquidated damages. Accordingly, the entirety of the parking charge must be a genuine pre-estimate of loss in order to be enforceable under contract law. The estimate must be based upon loss flowing from a breach of the parking terms.

    I require MET to submit a full breakdown of how these losses are calculated in this particular car park and for this particular ‘contravention’. MET cannot lawfully include their operational day to day running costs (e.g. provision of signs, ANPR and parking enforcement) in any ‘loss’ claimed. Not only are those costs tax deductible, but were no breaches to occur in that car park, the cost of parking 'enforcement ' would still remain the same.


    According to the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contract Regulations, parking charges for breach on private land must not exceed the cost to the landowner during the time the motorist is parked there. As the landowner does not impose a parking fee for the area in question, there is no loss to MET nor the landowner. The Office of Fair Trading has stated that ''a ‘parking charge’ is not automatically recoverable simply because it is stated to be a parking charge, as it cannot be used to state a loss where none exists.''


    2. Contract with landowner - no locus standi
    MET do not own nor have any interest or assignment of title of the land in question. As such, I do not believe that MET has the necessary legal capacity to enter into a contract with a driver of a vehicle parking in the car park, or indeed to allege a breach of contract. Accordingly, I require sight of a full copy of the actual contemporaneous, signed and dated site agreement/contract with the landowner (and not just a signed slip of paper saying that it exists). Some parking companies have provided “witness statements” instead of the relevant contract. There is no proof whatsoever that the alleged signatory has ever seen the relevant contract, or, indeed is even an employee of the landowner. Nor would a witness statement show whether there is a payment made from either party within the agreement/contract which would affect any 'loss' calculations. Nor would it show whether the contract includes the necessary authority, required by the BPA CoP, to specifically allow MET to pursue these charges in their own name as creditor in the Courts, and to grant them the standing/assignment of title to make contracts with drivers.

    In POPLA case reference 1771073004, POPLA ruled that a witness statement was 'not valid evidence'. This witness statement concerned evidence which could have been produced but was not. So if the operator produces a witness statement mentioning the contract, but does not produce the actual un-redacted contract document, then POPLA should be consistent and rule any such statement invalid.

    So I require the unredacted contract for all these stated reasons as I contend the Operator's authority is limited to that of a mere parking agent. I believe it is merely a standard business agreement between MET and their client, which is true of any such business model. This cannot impact upon, nor create a contract with, any driver, as was found in case no. 3JD00517 ParkingEye v Clarke 19th December 2013 (Transcript linked):


    In that case the Judge found that, as the Operator did not own any title in the car park: 'The decision to determine whether it is damages for breach...or a penalty...is really not for these Claimants but...for the owners. We have a rather bizarre situation where the Claimants make no money apparently from those who comply with the terms...and make their profit from those who are in breach of their contract. Well that cannot be right, that is nonsense. So I am satisfied that...the Claimants are the wrong Claimants. They have not satisfied this court that they have suffered any loss...if anything, they make a profit from the breach.'

    I challenge this Operator to rebut my assertion that their business model is the same 'nonsense', and is unenforceable. MET cannot build their whole business model around profiting from those they consider to be in breach of a sign, on land where they have no locus standi, and then try to paint that profit as a perpetual loss.



    3. Notice to Keeper not properly given under POFA 2012 – no keeper liability.
    The Notice I have received, as the registered owner of the vehicle, makes it clear that MET is relying on Schedule 4 of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012. MET has failed to comply in the wording of their Notice to Keeper since they have failed to identify the ‘Creditor’. This may, in law, be MET Parking Services or their client, their debt collecting agent, or the landowner or indeed some other party. Schedule 4 of the Act requires a Notice to Keeper to have the words to the effect that ‘The Creditor is.....”.

    The wording of Paragraph 9(2)(h) of Schedule 4 of the Act does not just indicate that the creditor must be named/assumed, but “identified”. The owner of the vehicle is entitled to know the identity of the party with whom the driver has allegedly contracted. In failing to specifically identify the ‘Creditor’ in its Notice to Keeper, MET Parking Services has failed to establish keeper liability. In this case, the NTK has not been correctly 'given' under POFA2012 and so it is a nullity. In a previous ruling, POPLA Assessor Matthew Shaw stated that the validity of a Notice to Keeper is 'fundamental to establishing liability' for a parking charge, stating: 'where a Notice is to be relied upon to establish liability it must, as with any statutory provision, comply with the Act.'


    4. Lack of photographic evidence and unreliable, unsynchronised, non-compliant ANPR system.
    I call into question the reliability and compliance of the ANPR system because MET are relying on two pictures of a vehicle. The first picture shows a car and number plate of my car apparently entering the site. The second picture shows a car but with no number plate visible, hence it cannot be demonstrated that this is the same car exiting the same site. The registration plate is shown separately with no time attached to that image and no location identified in the dark.

    So I require the Operator to present records which prove:

    - the Manufacturers' stated % reliability of the exact ANPR system used here.

    - the dates and times of when the cameras at this car park were checked, adjusted, calibrated, synchronised with the timer which stamps the photos and generally maintained to ensure the accuracy of the dates and times of any ANPR images.

    The Operator must produce evidence in response to these points and explain to POPLA how their system differs (if at all) from the flawed ANPR system which was wholly responsible for the court loss by the Operator in ParkingEye v Fox-Jones on 8 Nov 2013. That case was dismissed when the judge said the evidence from the Operator was 'fundamentally flawed' as the synchronisation of the camera pictures with the timer had been called into question and the operator could not rebut the point.

    I suggest that in the case of my vehicle being in this car park, a local camera took the image but a remote server added the time stamp. As the two are disconnected by the internet and do not have a common "time synchronisation system", there is no proof that the time stamp added is actually the exact time of the image. The operator appears to use WIFI which introduces a delay through buffering, so "live" is not really "live". Hence without a synchronised time stamp there is no evidence that the image is ever time stamped accurately, and this is in addition to the missing time/location/number-plate evidence from the second photo. Therefore I contend that this ANPR "evidence" from this Operator in this car park is just as unreliable as the ParkingEye system in the Fox-Jones case and I put MET to strict proof to the contrary.

    In addition, the unreliable/unsynchronised ANPR system used, and lack of information about the use of data, is not compliant with the BPA Code of Practice, which contains the following:
    ''21 Automatic number plate recognition (ANPR)
    21.1 You may use ANPR camera technology to manage, control and enforce parking in private car parks, as long as you do this in a reasonable, consistent and transparent manner. Your signs at the car park must tell drivers that you are using this technology and what you will use the data captured by ANPR cameras for.
    21.2 Quality checks: before you issue a parking charge notice you must carry out a manual quality check of the ANPR images to reduce errors and make sure that it is appropriate to take action. Full details of the items you should check are listed in the Operators’ Handbook.
    21.3 You must keep any ANPR equipment you use in your car parks in good working order. You need to make sure the data you are collecting is accurate, securely held and cannot be tampered with.
    21.4 It is also a condition of the Code that, if you receive and process vehicle or registered keeper data, you must:
    • be registered with the Information Commissioner
    • keep to the Data Protection Act
    • follow the DVLA requirements concerning the data
    • follow the guidelines from the Information Commissioner’s Office on the use of CCTV and ANPR cameras, and on keeping and sharing personal data such as vehicle registration marks.''

    At this location, there are merely a couple of secret small cameras up high on a pole. No signs at the car park clearly tell drivers about this technology nor how the data captured by ANPR cameras will be used. This means the system does not operate in a reasonable, consistent and transparent manner, and I have reason to believe that, potentially, every section of paragraph 21 is breached here.


    Unless the Operator can show documentary evidence otherwise, then this BPA Cop breach would also point to a failure to comply with the ICO terms of registration and a breach of the CPUTR 2008 (claiming to comply with the BPA Code of Practice when I believe it is not the case). This Operator is put to strict proof to the contrary.


    5. Unclear and non-compliant signage, forming no contract with drivers.
    Due to their high position and the barely legible size of the smallprint, the signs in this car park are very hard to read. I contend that the signs and any core parking terms that MET are relying upon were too small for the driver to discern when driving in and that the signs around the car park also fail to comply with the BPA Code of Practice. I require signage evidence in the form of a site map and dated photos of the signs at the time of the parking event. I would contend that the signs (wording, position and clarity) fail to properly inform the driver of the terms and any consequences for breach, as in the case of Excel Parking Services Ltd v Martin Cutts, 2011. As such, the signs were not so prominent that they 'must' have been seen by the driver - who would never have agreed to pay £100 in a free car park - and therefore I contend the elements of a contract were conspicuous by their absence.

    Based on the above arguments, I therefore respectfully request that my appeal is upheld and the charge dismissed.

    As always of course, you do need to edit the template to suit your own case as it makes no sense quoted verbatim - you must read/check/amend it.

    For example, is the info about signage in point #5 true of 'your' car park?

    Is this quote true, was it dark, are the pics like this? 'The first picture shows a car and number plate of my car apparently entering the site. The second picture shows a car but with no number plate visible, hence it cannot be demonstrated that this is the same car exiting the same site. The registration plate is shown separately with no time attached to that image and no location identified in the dark.'

    If you want to attach your Auntie's confirmation that you were elsewhere then you can - but you'd need to put in an introduction about the fact that this was two visits because you haven't even argued that fact yet. And you would need to add something to the 'ANPR' paragraph to demand MET's daily recording at this car park in the form of continuous footage, as you know that you were elsewhere in between. If this is not true then do not try it as you do NOT need it!

    It is the truth as I did not stay at mcdonalds for more then 20 minutes at a time and have stated that in my initial appeal to Met Parking. I even asked them to provide me with a video footage for the day and they have responded by saying
    ' We note that you have requested video fotage, please note that MET parking Servies Ltd use automated number plate recognition cameras (ANPR) which captures images of your vehicle and not video footage. Please also note that this information is not available for public use due to Data Protection. Met Parking Services Ltd do not have access to the CCTV footage held by Mcdonalds'

    I will amend the appeal and repost.

    I was going through the evidence and the number plate is unclear when entering Mcdonalds however it is much clearer when leaving Mcdonalds however there is still not clear enough to be read easily. Should i then use this evidence or stick with the fact that i entered the premises twice and since ANPR missed it, there is something wrong with the sytem?

    This is what I have changed point 4 to:

    4. Lack of photographic evidence and unreliable, unsynchronised, non-compliant ANPR system.
    I call into question the reliability and compliance of the ANPR system because MET are relying on two pictures of a vehicle. Whereas I entered the establishment twice on the day. First recorded in the penalty charge notice and the second which was missed at 8 clock in the evening. I have included a statement from the host who I was visiting on the day in question between 17:30 to 19:40.

    If i should stick with the above, I assume the following should be omitted.

    I suggest that in the case of my vehicle being in this car park, a local camera took the image but a remote server added the time stamp. As the two are disconnected by the internet and do not have a common "time synchronisation system", there is no proof that the time stamp added is actually the exact time of the image. The operator appears to use WIFI which introduces a delay through buffering, so "live" is not really "live". Hence without a synchronised time stamp there is no evidence that the image is ever time stamped accurately, and this is in addition to the missing time/location/number-plate evidence from the second photo. Therefore I contend that this ANPR "evidence" from this Operator in this car park is just as unreliable as the ParkingEye system in the Fox-Jones case and I put MET to strict proof to the contrary.

    Yep, omit the bit you have identified above, as it all has to suit your own case.

    As regards this from MET: '' We note that you have requested video fotage, please note that MET parking Servies Ltd use automated number plate recognition cameras (ANPR) which captures images of your vehicle and not video footage. Please also note that this information is not available for public use due to Data Protection. Met Parking Services Ltd do not have access to the CCTV footage held by Mcdonalds'' I would quote it under the ANPR paragraph and state that this means their records ONLY show when a car's VRN is captured by their cameras, and so if a person leaves at a time when there is a lorry driving in (covering the leaving car at the exact moment the camera would have captured the VRN) then their system will miss the fact. The same is true if their server goes down temporarily, at times when they are checking/servicing the camera, and at times when a car is tailgated by another, or a strong rainstorm or flash of a headlight could temporarily render the leaving VRN unreadable. State that this is a known fault of ANPR systems that do not also have the back-up of a continuous video footage so that errors like this one can be spotted. Reiterate the fact that the car visited TWICE - you even gave them the approximate time of second arrival to check any continuous record - and in the absence of continuous footage, MET's evidence of VRNs detected (as opposed to those not detected) is worthless.

    Can you check this?

    On point 5, as i am not 100% certain about their signage ( i never checked since i never overstay) should i leave it as is or omit it from the appeal?

    4. Lack of photographic evidence and unreliable, unsynchronised, non-compliant ANPR system.
    I call into question the reliability and compliance of the ANPR system because MET are relying on two pictures of a vehicle. Whereas I entered the establishment twice on the day. First recorded in the penalty charge notice and the second which was missed at 8 clock in the evening. I have included a statement from the host who I was visiting on the day in question between 17:30 to 19:40.

    After contacting MET Parking for video evidence for the day, I received the following reply
    '' We note that you have requested video footage, please note that MET parking Services Ltd use automated number plate recognition cameras (ANPR) which captures images of your vehicle and not video footage. Please also note that this information is not available for public use due to Data Protection. Met Parking Services Ltd do not have access to the CCTV footage held by Mcdonalds''
    This means that MET Parking records ONLY show when the car’s VRN is captured by their cameras, and so if a person leaves at a time when there is a lorry driving in (covering the leaving car at the exact moment the camera would have captured the VRN) then their system will miss the fact. The same is true if their server goes down temporarily, at times when they are checking/servicing the camera, and at times when a car is tailgated by another, or a strong rainstorm or flash of a headlight could temporarily render the leaving VRN unreadable. State that this is a known fault of ANPR systems that do not also have the back-up of a continuous video footage so that errors like this one can be spotted. Reiterate the fact that the car visited TWICE - you even gave them the approximate time of second arrival to check any continuous record - and in the absence of continuous footage, MET's evidence of VRNs detected (as opposed to those not detected) is worthless.


    So I require the Operator to present records which prove:

    - the dates and times of when the cameras at this car park were checked, adjusted, calibrated, synchronised with the timer which stamps the photos and generally maintained to ensure the accuracy of the dates and times of any ANPR images.

    The Operator must produce evidence in response to these points and explain to POPLA how their system differs (if at all) from the flawed ANPR system which was wholly responsible for the court loss by the Operator in ParkingEye v Fox-Jones on 8 Nov 2013. That case was dismissed when the judge said the evidence from the Operator was 'fundamentally flawed' as the synchronisation of the camera pictures with the timer had been called into question and the operator could not rebut the point.

    I also read somewhere that how can they justify a £100 fee which should be in line with their loss and then give 50% discount if paid within 14 days.
    here goes:

    19.5 If the parking charge that the driver is being asked to pay
    is for a breach of contract or act of trespass, this charge
    must be based on the genuine pre-estimate of loss that
    you suffer.

    19.6 If your parking charge is based upon a contractually
    agreed sum, that charge cannot be punitive or
    unreasonable.

    I require MET to provide a detailed breakdown of how the amount of the 'charge' was arrived at. I am aware from court rulings and previous POPLA adjudications that the cost of running the business may not be included in these pre-estimate losses.


    Should i add these two lines?

    If you have already given away who the driver was in your first appeal, if you didn't say 'I visited twice' (it's a shame if you did! You had no need to as you were responding to a notice to keeper!) then remove the above. But if you have NOT said who was driving at all, then amend your wording for this POPLA appeal now so you don't say 'I drove' and then you could leave the above in ... Only you and MET know what you put in your first appeal.

    Always include an 'unclear signage' paragraph even if you can't go back and check. It forces them to have to show maps & signs where they could get it wrong (a PPC have sent a map of the wrong car park before!).

    I would not bother with the two lines from the BPA CoP as they add nothing you haven't already got in the 'no GPEOL' paragraph.

    And finally you must make amendments of course to the bit you have quoted from me about you visiting twice - because you have quoted my words without making them into sentences! You can't include my words of advice to you, like 'state this' and 'Reiterate the fact'...!
