    MET services PCN help

    MET services PCN help 14th Oct 16 at 12:37 PM
    Good afternoon,

    Thanks for taking the time to read my post, just after a little bit of help and guidance.

    On the 8th september myself and partner parked at bicester village train station and bought a ticket and put it in the dashboard as usual. upon returning that evening we had a PCN from MET services for no displayed ticket with the reason ;

    no valid ticket/voucher/permit - in breach of railway bylaw 14.

    I was a bit shocked and opened the car to find the ticket in the footwell of the car. can only think it blew off when shutting the door as it was a windy day. After reading various things on the internet about this company i did nothing, coupled with being away with working travelling the last 3 weeks. Had a letter come through the post today from MET services titled 'NOTICE TO OWNER' addressed to my wife as it was her car stating the parking charge of £100 is payable and a photo of the rear of the car on the letter.

    I still have the notice given and the actual parking ticket i brought. Where do i stand in this situation? has it been to long to appeal it? as the new letter says if you wish to appeal this notice, please do not pay at this time. which makes sense.

    any help would be great.
    thanks rob

    The keeper of the car now appeals to that NTO, using the template blue writing appeal in the 'NEWBIES PLEASE READ THESE FAQS FIRST' thread, simple as that. All acronyms and reasons why not to name the driver are explained in that sticky thread which also gives you the appeal to use (deliberately saying nothing about the story of what happened).

    You will not be paying this so no urgent 'discount deadline' applies.

    thanks for the replies, good to know can still send the appeal letter, just wasnt sure as it is more than 28 days after the intial PCN on the car.

    never thought of taking a picture of the ticket, will remember that next time.

    A blob of Blutack, or a clothes peg can ensure the ticket doesn't blow off. But some 'wardens' have apparently shaken cars to dislodge the ticket so they can issue a ticket and meet their target for the day.

    Every ticket at one stage had a sticky backing, now most private tickets have none - any guesses why?
