    PCN Cancelled

    PCN Cancelled 18th Mar 17 at 12:25 PM
    Hi
    Thank you so much to all the very knowledgeable people who willingly support others through the nightmare known as PCN.

    Following your advice I appealed a PCN issued by Athena ANPR Ltd at a Lidl ca park for overstaying by 15 minutes. I received the standard acknowledgement telling me the charge would not increase whilst the appeal was being considered. I kept checking online to see if it had been cancelled, despite not receiving a decision from Athena the charge increased from £45.00 to £90.00.

    I then emailed Lidl, provided receipts to prove I was a genuine customer and have had a reply form Lidl customer services stating they will instruct Athena to cancel the PCV. Result!!

    However I have not received anything in writing from Athena but the PCN number is no longer recognised on their online site
    My question is. Is this an end to it ?I have read threads from other people who have thought they were in the clear but received court summons further down the line.

    Athena don't do court

    despite issuing almost half a million tickets in 2 years. Work out the odds on you being their first ever court case!

    Take a screen shot of their online site page showing ticket not recognised. This won't be going any further.
    NEWBIES - wise up - DO NOT IGNORE A PARKING CHARGE NOTICE - you have been warned!
