    UK Parking Control (Debt Recovery Plus), No Blue Badge

    UK Parking Control (Debt Recovery Plus), No Blue Badge 9th Jun 17 at 12:17 PM
    Good Afternoon!

    In February I recieved a parking ticket for parking in a disabled space without displaying a blue badge. My wife has recently undergone ankle fusion, and was being treated in a taylor special frame. (I tried to add a picture but as new member I'm not allowed.)
    She had an assessment and had been awarded PIP payments, when we spoke to the local council, we were told that applying for a blue badge could take several months, we had collected the forms but hadn't made any progress on them.

    Mobility was obviously an issue, and this was the first time she had walked, normally she had been using a wheel chair.

    We appealed the ticket a couple of days after the ticket was issued and received nothing. This morning I received a letter from DRP saying that the next step is that they take me to court. When I called them, the guy at the end of the phone said that a judge will see it as an open and shut case, would never be able to rule in my favour, and likes to make an example of people like me who park in disabled spaces without a blue badge.

    Can anyone advise on this at all please?

    Many Thanks.

    Why did you phone DRP ??

    DRP ARE BLANTANT LIARS and the idiot who told you that is part of
    a scam company

    Fancy saying that a judge will see it as an open and shut case ??

    That guy should go back to his hole in the sewers, total rubbish, but that's DRP for you, stupid and liars

    IGNORE DRP, NEVER TALK TO THEM AGAIN, NEVER PAY THEM

    This morning I received a letter from DRP saying that the next step is that they take me to court.
    ...and you didn't Google that letter, first, and find it's a template everyone laughs at and ignores? Research things first, sniff out a scam and stop taking a silly threatogram letter chain seriously:

    Come back if UKPC try a small claim. We win them (read some threads about it!).

    the guy at the end of the phone said that a judge will see it as an open and shut case, would never be able to rule in my favour, and likes to make an example of people like me who park in disabled spaces without a blue badge.
    Stop phoning either company. What did you expect a firm like that to say. He would say that, wouldn't he! Yet your wife as a passenger that day, is clearly a person who qualifies as a LAWFULLY protected person under the Equality Act 2010:

    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:
    Top of the page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.

    Thanks for the information, so do I just ignore the letters and messages from DRP? I notice on another post that the person who received the parking notice was told to write to DRP and tell them to refer it back to UKPC. - Thanks
