    UKPC Court

    UKPC Court 18th Apr 17 at 9:30 AM
    Has anyone actually been taken to court by UKPC and lost - im weighing up the stress and hassle of non-payment lingering for 6 years against the chances of success by digging in my heels!
    Got an invoice from them from the Stevenage Leisure park when i went to get a train ticket and saw a guy 'loitering' around trying not to look suspicious - was invoiced shortly after so suspect he was the one who could have easily warned me and therefore 'mitigated the losses' of the land owners -i have no idea who they could be, any ideas?

    thanks

    Why are you worrying about court? Have you received court papers?

    If this is a very recent ticket, you appeal it to UKPC, get rejected, get POPLA code, send POPLA appeal, win POPLA appeal - all over in a couple of months. Forget 6 years! Read the NEWBIES FAQ sticky Section 1 at this stage.

    The small claims court is a lottery (for both sides) with as many wins as there are losses (for both sides).
    NEWBIES - wise up - DO NOT IGNORE A PARKING CHARGE NOTICE - you have been warned!

    Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; show him how to catch fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.

    Please note: I am NOT involved in any 'paid for' appeals service.

    was this a left site case?
    did the loitering bloke warn you before you left the car park?
    are you familiar with VCS, Miss Coates, Toothbrush, Ibotson?

    yes its a left site case
    yes i saw a 'bloke' but no uniform or anything to say he was an attendant and definitely no warning

    i read the Ibotson case which was hilarious,

    UKPC have form, if they do try court be sure to make the judge aware of it.

    well i cant deny i was actually there at the times they have stated, i left the site but suspect there was a bloke watching and trying to catch people out so i plan on claiming they should have taken steps to mitigate their losses by telling me i would be fined if i left the site, really really dont want the hassle of going to court so may well loose courage once they start sending in the nasties!!!!!
