    ParkingEye lose yet another case

    ParkingEye lose yet another case 25th Jan 14 at 10:40 PM
    Morpeth & Berwick County Court
    District Judge Howard
    Friday 24/01/2014
    3JD05814 Parking Eye v Taylor

    One of the guys on Pepipoo sent some last-minute advice to the defendant, who hadn't been on the forums originally, and it appears that PE didn't produce a copy of the landowner contract, relying instead on one of their dodgy "witness statement" documents, allegedly signed by someone from the landholder, not on headed paper and with no address printed, so completely worthless as a piece of evidence.

    This is what the defendant put on her Facebook page:

    "Well you'll all be pleased to know I won my case at court today with parking eye due to them not producing a contract between themselves and the land holder !!"

    The Parking Prankster "Most Incompetent Legal Department" award for 2014 does indeed look to be a close-run thing between PE and Excel, although there's still plenty of time for other contenders to enter the fray.
    Speeding cases fought: 24 (3 of mine, 21 for others). Cases won: 20. Points on licence: 0. Private Parking Court Cases: Won 22. Lost 7.

    These court wins are coming in thick and fast now - is this the same one Trisontana mentions here?

    http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=4851371&page=3

    Can anyone confirm the exact number of Parking Eye forum assisted court wins now as the ASA are now interested and if accurately reported on their website - they will look into it. (I make it about 15?)

    Also if we have an accurate total wins forum assisted wins at POPLA - there is an easy on-line form to complete.


    http://www.asa.org.uk/Consumers/How-to-complain/Online-Form/Step1.aspx

    with the option of selecting:
    Are you complaining on behalf of an organisation or body with a direct interest in the subject of your complaint?
    So as forum helpers this should be the box to select.

    Hopefully by complaining this will influence Parking Eye to accurately reflect and update their court page and change the wording regarding forum assisted defeats.

    List of PPC Court Cases (non-exhaustive)

    I think I have got that up to date except have left off the Barrow case mentioned by Trisontana as I don't have the claim details. And haven't mentioned General Lee's case yet (pepipoo) nor lainieee's set-aside case (from here) because both are not yet completed cases.

    Also some cases have been stayed and I think kifl mentioned a Huddersfleid case I didn't know about as well?

    Finally we never got the case details of Fox-Jones (pepipoo 'sfoxjones') so that one isn't as useful as it could have been.


    Re non-ParkingEye cases I haven't yet added the 'Excel Spreadsheet' one(!) nor the Vinci one someone recently posted about. Will add when I get a mo, if the court details are posted.

    according to pepipoo that so called barrow case is this north east case , but was posted on some barrow pressure group forum or FB so not geographically correct
    Newbies !!
    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se

    Yes, to confirm, there was no "Barrow case".

    All up I make it 19 (Counting Lemon and Harris as two separate cases - even if they were heard together). Also includes the "Barrow" one which was actually Morpeth & Berwick although the total doesn't really take into account the stay in E. Anglia and the potential this could have for a number of cases.
    My very sincere apologies for those hoping to request off-board assistance but I am now so inundated with requests that in order to do justice to those "already in the system" I am no longer accepting PM's and am unlikely to do so for the foreseeable future (August 2016).

    For those seeking more detailed advice and guidance regarding small claims cases arising from private parking issues I recommend that you visit the Private Parking forum on PePiPoo.com
