    DOH! - a parking charge but i have a parking 9th Mar 17 at 5:08 PM
    hi all, i received a parking charge but i had a ticket. the pics on the chargers site show no ticket on dashboard but i have one that i assume blew onto floor when i shut door... the carpark has cctv so am happy to have that pulled and shown i actually paid it personally (facial matching etc).


    all the guidance states to ignore charge and appeal based on signage, but if i have a ticket... how do i go about appealing or should i just enquire straight away???


    EDIT - I still have the ticket so there should be no reasons not to retract the charge.

    As for whos car park was it, you said it was a private car park, but whos car park was/is it? what type of car park is it?

    If you go about it the right way you should be able to get a landowner cancellation - more later...

    Who do you think is going to plough through hours of grainy CCTV action? Facial matching - what's that? Will you be offering to pay whoever it is for their time to go through it all?

    This is a £60 speculative parking ticket, not a murder!
    We cannot provide you with a silver bullet to get you out of this. You have to be in for the long run, and need to involve yourself in research and work for you to get rid of this. It is not simple. We will help, but can't do it for you.

    If they ignore, report them to the Information Commissioner, who can do them

    Does the car park have CCTV, or is it just the usual ANPR set up with cameras on a pole doing no more than reading most of the number plates on vehicles that enter?

    post one (now edited) states

    " the pics on the chargers site show no ticket on dashboard "

    from memory ANPR cameras do not take pictures of dashboards , small men in dirty raincoats sneak out from under bushes with cameras to do this

    Whats that? the usual hope no one notices, and then rely on the local councils lack of inertia and confusion over the differences between CCTV and ANPR?
