    One parking solution fine 12th Jun 17 at 3:21 PM
    I have received a fine from one parking solution .... the photos are time stamped 12.41 and show my car ... the fine states wrong registration .. fine says Y592 and I am Y952. I have a ticket which expired at 14 15....two hour ticket. I disputed this as the machines were out of order. One was working and people were asking where the working one was ... right at the end of the park. I am not young and have a dodgy ankle so obviously took longer to get there and back after helping others .. they not interested said i must pay .. what can I do ?

    actually , they should have given you a POPLA code

    has this been given ?

    as you then have 28 days from the date of the code to appeal to POPLA, has this expired yet or roughly now many days are left ?

    They gave me a POPLA code. Is it worth pursuing this? The actual fine states the wrong Reg No. - In fact I could not sign into the site to check this fine as the reg was wrong - so I informed them and they quickly changed it without telling me... sneaky??

    even if you lost at popla you are not required to pay

    you only owe the money if a judge says so

    its your choice but most people would and should do a decent popla appeal based on post #3 of the NEWBIES sticky thread, especially if there are errors on the paperwork

    Thanks. One other question. This alleged violation was on 10 May yet the postage date this was sent was 2 June. Somewhere I read they have to fine you within 15 days - is this correct.

    No mileage there - and it isn't a "fine" (they can never fine you!)

    no , they cannot "fine " you at all, that would be illegal or unlawful because private parking "fines" were made a civil law issue years ago , or were never "fines in the first place"

    they can issue an invoice within 6 years, but if they wish to follow the law , namely POFA2012 they have to send it so it arrives by day 15 for ANPR events (not windscreen tickets) , if they dont follow POFA2012 then they can send it when they like

    if you admitted being the driver in your appeal, then POFA2012 does not apply in which case you would have made your case harder to win as you cannot hide behind POFA2012 if you admit that you were driving

    so what you are saying is they failed POFA2012 but in post #1 you hinted that you admitted to driving, a classic mistake

    Read the NEWBIES thread, post #3, that's what it's there for. Show us your POPLA draft based on the template wording.
    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.

    shame , if you read this thread http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5619279 and read the assessors report you will see why we say do not name the driver

    you should have asked on here a month ago when the NTK arrived, especially as you have been a member here for 8 years

    good luck
