    Smart Parking Ltd fine

    Smart Parking Ltd fine 14th Mar 17 at 6:36 PM
    Hi
    I received a letter form DRP regarding a CCTV parking fine via Smart Parking Ltd (13mins over the limit but was in the Waitrose shop cafe after food shopping). We never received the original letter from Smart Parking Ltd so were a little surprised when the DRP letter arrived. I immediately went online and appealed directly with Smart Parking Ltd and today received a rejection email as it's over the 28 days - obviously though as it was over that when we got the letter from DRP.
    Only found this forum today unfortunately so my appeal, although covered our reasons didn't wash and wasn't;t anywhere near as good as the ones I found today here(!)
    Any ideas on where we can go from here? just ignore them?
    Thanks in advance!

    Post Four of the Newbies Sticky deals with DRP completely.

    Other than a shop cancellation now all you need to do is sit it out for six years or until you recieve a proper court claim.

    IGNORE drp like the newbies sticky thread tells you to do

    and if not so SMART rejected your appeal, they should have included a POPLA code, if so, start drafting your popla appeal and get it submitted to popla

    any complaints about DRP being involved in an ongoing appeal go to AOS at the BPA, as mentioned in the NEWBIES sticky thread

    if its too late for any appeals , just IGNORE drp and only come back if not so SMART issue court papers (an MCOL)

    why have you not complained to the landholder and got a cancellation ?

    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se

    Because as I said, I hadn't found this forum with all this great advice until the other day

    I didn't get a popla code in the rejection email. So will work on that. I will also be going to the shop to see what they can do today

    Hi All. As an update, I have had a couple of letters from DRP since I originally posted. The last one says that they are recommending that Smart Parking Ltd take me to court. Still ignoring them so I'll see what happens...!

    What happened about your POPLA code - you said you were going to 'work on that'? Getting the code to facilitate your POPLA appeal would have killed this dead. Smart Parking are so easy to beat at POPLA.

    Now it looks like that appeal window has closed, you remain vulnerable and open to legal pursuit for the balance of six years. Smart Parking have just started issuing court claims after never having issued one single claim - ever, previously.
    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.

    TOTALLY USELESS TIMEWASTERS TO IGNORE, the only thing they are good at is sending out junk mail

    Imbeciles at their best at their worst ... Imbeciles

    The DRP web site >>> http://www.debtrecoveryplus.co.uk/parking-services/
    says .... "We offer a 'no collection, no fee service'
    ... WHOOPS .... MSE MAKES THAT HAPPENS

    In a nutshell. no response from you = no collection = no money for DRP ??
    Now that's what I call a good deal ..... NOT FOR DRP

    Smart are not the smartest page in the book

    A REMINDER
    Smart Parking settle out of court for data protection contravention

    Do remember that Smart were kicked out of Asda and since ... others
