    Help! Ukpc have 'photographic evidence' which isn't real

    Help! Ukpc have 'photographic evidence' which isn't real 26th Aug 15 at 2:28 PM
    Hey I need some help.
    I parked in a free car park with a maximum stay of 2 hours on 18/7/15. I arrived at the car park at 08:20 and arrived back at my car at 10:00 to find a parking fine. I still had 20 minutes before I overstayed. My friend also parked in the car park and arrived 5 minutes before me and didn't have a ticket.
    I opened the ticket and it stated that my car was first seen at 07:15 and seen again at 09:27. I knew this was not true because i was still in bed with my alarm set for 07:15 and my car was outside my home so with this in mind I immediately appealed because I knew there would be no evidence of my car being in the car park at this time.
    I appealed to ukpc who rejected stating that all photographic evidence is date and time sampled and this cannot be changed by the warden so again knowing that such evidence does not exist I appealed to popla.
    Yesterday I received an email from popla with the evidence sent by ukpc and without a worry about it I opened it to find several photos of my car at 09:27 and a few mins after and a photo with a time sample of 07:15
    What the *#%^*+%????
    So they say the warden cannot change the time sample yet here is a picture which proves they can!!
    I haven't had a decision from popla yet but with that evidence it really isn't looking good and the charge is now £100.
    I know from looking at some posts that I should have took advice on here first but I thought it would be straight forward as I knew there wouldn't be any evidence.
    Help what do I do??

    however every time that "Norris cole" takes a photo , is going to be a good time to flood the DVLA with questions as to why they are paying an incentive scheme , whilst being against the BPA code of practice ,


    and questioning the legality of giving your info away

    Yes, Norris Cole incentives can't be kept hush-hush, they are part of the sales pitch.

    Do your wardens wear a uniform and carry ID? Less...

    Yes. In line with the British Parking Association’s guidelines all our wardens wear UKPC branded uniforms and carry full identification.

    Probably. Norris doesn't get to see the keeper details, but I believe that the ICO has stated that even a VRN constitutes personal data.

    I'm sure we wish all PPCs were exploded.

    I know the word meant was expulsion, but explosion is sooo much better.
