    Parking Fine - Advice 28th Apr 17 at 9:48 AM
    Hi all,

    Ok, so I've read through all the guidance and a LOT of the advice which has been previously offered.

    Today I realised 2 tickets have been given to a vehicle of which I am the registered keeper. The reason for these being issued as defined in the NTK/PCN for both is: 'Failure to park within a marked bay'

    Now one PCN was issued via post by One Parking Solution, and 2 days later another PCN was issued by them and physically put onto the motorbike. Looking around the car park I have noted there are signs for Horizon Parking and could not see any clear signs for One Parking Solution until really looking around.

    I believe the area which the vehicle parked was subject to the jurisdiction of Horizon Parking.

    Now the One Parking signs are not clear and are very small (probably a font size 20) and not clearly visible, nor would you go looking for them after reviewing the Horizon signs, the ones which are believed to be applicable at the time. You'll see what I mean in the attached pictures.

    Anyway, on OP99 they have the incorrect address, on the OP19 they have the correct keeper address. Do I correct them and let them know their error so that I can get them to review both? I know at this stage I'm likely outside the appeal window as these were issued in January.

    Anyway I'm attaching pictures of the Horizon signs (for comparison), One Parking Solution sign, and all currently received letters (with personal information removed)

    Also, a quick additional note, the car on the kerb in OP99 NTK/PCN did not receive the same notice.

    I look forward to your advice. < All images have been uploaded to this folder.

    Hey Coupon,

    I did use the search and did read that thread, but I also found another which went on to say you should send them a response.

    What is the date of the advice you are quoting? Who was the poster?

    Wright Hassall don't get involved in the dirty end of litigation in private parking cases, instead they use their 'solicitors' headed paper to cover over the fact they are acting as debt collectors. And it is standard forum advice to ignore debt collectors, as the more you communicate with them, the more they realise they are bothering you, so they just ratchet up the pressure - in their next letter to you.
    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.
