    Ive been issued a private PCN while in England, the car is registered to Northern Ireland however, so if my understanding is right POFA has no bearing me? Is this correct?
    Should I just ignore it?

    Probably best ignoring it unless it's one that is from a BPA member where it is EASY for a registered keeper to win at POPLA (e.g. Highview, Britannia, Civil Enforcement, Smart Parking). You would still get offered POPLA (despite where you live) which I would do if it's a very easy BPA member to beat.

    Which PPC?

    POFA relates to the location of the car park so it would apply IF the PPC is one that uses it e.g. ParkingEye. A lot don't.

    You'll get letters asking you to pay and they may actually say the Keeper is liable but to enforce their demands they have to take you to court - one that is local to you in NI. The cost of doing this is so far been uneconomic hence the suggestion

    Life's for living, get on with it rather than worrying about these. If they hassle, counter claim.

    Cheers for the help so far guys. Its from Highview, Ive just ignored it so far, they've now sent a second letter out.
    Im now trying to weigh up the risk of Ignoring it to the hassle involved of challenging it.

    No risks with Highview, they are so tame and can't hold keepers liable even in England. Do not contact them unless you want to appeal as keeper and ask for a POPLA code & do that (they are a cinch to beat). You could see this off, everyone does at POPLA v Highview, then it's cancelled.

    No worries AT ALL. DO NOT say who was driving in the online appeal, choose 'I was not the driver or the PCN was not properly issued' (second choice). Use the template from the NEWBIES thread or this one that worked in 2 hours flat:
