    Indigo PCN - Chatham railway station

    Indigo PCN - Chatham railway station 19th May 17 at 1:13 PM
    I park at Chatham station car park 2 or 3 times a week. I usually buy parking scratchcards which have the car registration number printed on them.

    I had run out of scratchcards and as we were about to change our car, I did not want to buy any more as some would be wasted so for 2 weeks I knew that I would have to buy tickets on the day from the ticket machine at the station.

    On 31 March I duly paid my £6 at the machine, the machine made its usual whirring noise and displayed the message “printing”, but no ticket was produced. I left a note on the car dashboard to say that I had paid my money but that no ticket had been provided. That evening, I had a ticket on the car.

    I sent an appeal to Indigo and included a scanned copy of the notice I had left in the car. However, they rejected my appeal on 5 May and included photos which showed the notice left in the car so it had been seen by the person doing the ticketing. The comments were that “it is the customer’s responsibility to make sure that a ticket is purchased”. Would I really go and buy another ticket when I had already paid £6 for the day’s parking? I have been given a reference number to appeal to POPLA but have not done any more yet.

    We no longer own the car which was ticketed as we sold it shortly afterwards.

    On reading through the posts on here, I now realise that I should not have given my name as driver of the vehicle although my husband was the owner of the car.

    I am very confused as to what to do next so any help would be appreciated.

    draft a popla appeal based on any recent railway popla appeals by other members here , dont look at anything prior ro 2016 and preferably this year

    if the driver has been admitted (bad mistake) then dont use KEEPER based arguments based on legal arguments

    post #3 of the NEWBIES sticky thread will help you too

    bear in mind that after 6 months the TOC cannot take you to magistrates court under any bylaws, although INDIGO will still think they can issue a civil case , but we dont see court cases when railway and airport land is involved, due to bylaws
    Newbies !!
    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
