    Charge notice received 14th Mar 17 at 11:12 AM
    Hi, I've read all the advice on offer here but need clarification as I can't see exactly what I should do...

    I parked in what I thought was a normal car park (I've parked there before) and sent my daughter to get a ticket, she came back saying the ticket machine was broken, I wrote a note with my mobile number on offering to pay if they called me as there has been a caretaker on site previously who I'd paid. my daughter then took a photo of the machine saying "out of order". I received no contact but then a charge notice from high view parking in the post. I've looked them up online and they seem to be big business? I've now received a charge notice reminder... help/advice/ therapy much appreciated

    You need to go back to basics and read the NEWBIES sticky thread at the top of the parking board. This tells you step by step what you need to know to take this through the various appeals processes.

    The driver parked in a normal car park and sent my daughter to get a ticket, she came back saying the ticket machine was broken. Driver wrote a note offering to pay if they called me as there has been a caretaker on site previously.

    My daughter then took a photo of the machine saying "out of order".

    YOU MUST appeal this as per our template, NOT saying who was driving.

    Highview are very, very easy to beat at 2nd stage POPLA as long as you do not appeal as 'driver' so no weak appeal talking about the story of what happened. You could add a line saying that the passenger took a photo of the machine which was "out of order". BUT don't ruin the appeal by saying who was with that passenger, no story blabbing about 'I did this'.

    The registered keeper named on the letter appeals - NOW, you are already a bit late. And not by snail mail post! Online, choosing the second option: 'I was not the driver or there was something wrong with the PCN'.

    PRIVATE PCN in England/Wales? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT

    Click on the trail, top of this page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    DON'T read old advice to ignore, unless in Scotland/NI.

    If the OP is posting under her real name, then I suggest that isn't the best idea.

    Time to bump my thread http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5532696
    Got a Private Parking Notice??
    ** Do Not Pay
    ** Do Not Ignore a Notice to Keeper (except Scotland)
    ** Do not mention who was driving (No "Me" Myself" "I")
    ** Never, ever phone a Private Parking Company
    ** Please read the NEWBIES thread at the top of the forum
