    Hypothetical question about private PCN

    Hypothetical question about private PCN 11th Oct 16 at 12:36 PM
    I've seen a lost of posts on here saying that as long as its not the council that has issued the PCN then it doesn't matter and you can ignore it as well as all the letters that will be sent. I was wondering where is the line with that? I mean, does this mean I can use a private car park every day and rack up fines and ignore them because the company won't actually take me to court? Surely if they could just be ignored then I would never have to pay for parking again? I'm confused as to what powers these company's actually have. Thank you.

    parking eye issued over 30,000 court claims last year , let see who,s in court today

    I dout if you have seen posts from reputable posters saying "don,t pay" what you have seen are suggestions to challenge them and query there paperwork to a point that if court started the PPC would loose
    Have YOU had to walk 500 miles?
    Were you advised to walk 500 more?
    You could be entitled to compensation.

    If you've been reading THIS forum then I highly doubt you've seen any posts in the past 3+ years recommending you ignore.

    For Premier Parking Solutions I have read most people saying ignore the letters that come and that they legally can't do anything. This doesn't make sense as they legally can't do anything then I would technically never have to pay for parking again.

    The fact is that, if they can identify the driver, they can try to claim money from them.

    If they can't identify the driver, and they comply with very strict legislation fully, they can transfer liability to the registered keeper. However they are all so poor at following what turn out to be *VERY* simple guidelines once you take all the waffle out of them that they are regularly beaten through no fault but their own.

    All they have to do is have extremely clear signage stating the charges for overstaying; have it in huge letters and dotted all over the car park; allow sufficient and reasonable grace periods; not take the !!!! with the amount they charge and try and fleece people; abide by a code of conduct that is, in itself not unreasonable and there wouldn't be anywhere *NEAR* the level of success that this forum achieves.

    The people you have listened too are idiots. Parking companies can enforce their charges. In saying that some are incredibly incompetent and lack the skills to enforce anything.

    There are also other companies who want an easy life and choose not to robustly enforce their charges. If you get a ticket from the latter be aware they have up to 6 years to change their minds and chase the money.
    This space for hire.

    Whether they are 'competent' at it is rather academic once they kick the process off; it's the defendant who's landed with a pile of paperwork to deal with. Do that incompetently or tardily and they will very likely lose. The PPC has the upper hand once proceedings are underway, unless the defendant gets all their ducks in a row.
