    Parking fine from UKPC (private company - not local authority!)

    Parking fine from UKPC (private company - not local authority!) 15th Sep 07 at 12:02 PM
    I need help...

    I'm in a bit of a grey area! I'm heavily pregnant and suffering from SPD (a condition that affects the hips) I am now unable to drive at all but two weeks ago I was photographed in a disabled bay in a private car park. I would never normally use these bays as I feel strongly that they are a requirement for the people that need them, however, the week before I had to wait 2 hours for the driver parked next to me to return to his vehicle as I couldn't open my door wide enough to access my vehicle. Before parking there I drove around the car park looking for an end space so that I wouldn't have to use the disabled bay but there were none vacant, as there were no mother and baby spaces either I felt I had no other choice.

    I was under the impression that disabled parking bays in private car parks were advisory only but I have received a parking charge from UKPC of 45 going up to 90 if not paid within 14 days.

    Should I dispute this? I can of course provide a medical certificate to my condition and my numerous referrals to physiotherapy and proof of my chiropracty treatment.
