    Got another parking ticket..3rd time unlucky maybe 14th Jun 17 at 5:03 AM
    hi all. as the title says, I have got another parking ticket. This time was at the Hospital with my wife. There was no parking spaces for me to park at the hospital and I was in a rush to park. however there was a side street behind the hospital where I noticed a few cars were parked. so I though ooh these guys must know a secret parking spot. at this point I must say that there were double red markings on the floor,(very faint but could see them). the area was very secluded, it was no ambulance way etc, just a quiet little area with a few vans parked there. so I proceeded to park there and on my return there was a ticket on my windscreen. sooo, the question is have I a leg to stand on as I was parked on double reds even though it was not in a dangerous/busy area. I have won previously with popla but this time its parked on double reds. what can I do...


    ON THE PLUS SIDE MY WIFE GAVE BIRTH TO A BABY BOY WEIGHING IN AT 7.8lbs. WHOOP WHOOP.... However in this case a PLUS and MINUS still make a MINUS ey. Damn you CPP (this is the name of the PPC btw)

    On a real highway double red lines mean absolutely don't even think of parking they are more restrictive than yellows, but if this is private land they are just pretty paint, and must be covered by signage.

    You do however seem to have a very lackadaisical approach to parking your car!

    Hi all at MSE.
    I have just got back from tesco's coventry. I have been given a parking charge for parking on cross hatchings..i was not there for long.

    Oh and congratulations with the little one!

    Congratulations. Yes you have a leg to stand on. The thread titled Newbies at the top of this forum contains all the information you need to see this ticket off.

    There are a few CPPs which one is this?

    Apologies for the late reply. Have been busy with baby.


    hi, yes I know. I do seem to have a habit now, I guess its got to do with realising these PPCs are all fraudsters. Moving on I have received my NTK. I do know that the hospital is private land so the RED painted lines on the floor don't mean anything. how shall I put this to the PPC. or shall I first send the basic appeal process on this forum and wait for POPLA code right?

    Use the appropriate one from post #1 of the NEWBIES FAQ sticky. Fisherjim asked you which parking company, but you've failed to provide an answer. Which PPC it is will determine which appeal template you use, and whether you have access to POPLA.

    hi, yes I know. I do seem to have a habit now, I guess its got to do with realising these PPCs are all fraudsters.
    I think I'd be working on the basis of some of them being highly litigious and adopt future parking decisions based on that!
    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.

    As Umkomaas said you treat this like any other private parking ticket based on who the PPC is, you have not told us.

    The red lines are immaterial to the way you handle it.

    As said before you need to get a grip on your silly devil-may care attitude to parking or you will come unstuck!

    Neither of them currently does court. In saying that the second one has been bought by Parking Eye so that may well change.

    What happened when you contacted PALS to complain?
    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.

    Hello coupon.mad. I rang them and the woman over the phone said basically I shouldn't have parked on double lines and as its a private road and as they are not in charge of it I will have to speak to the parking ticket company. she also told me to pay it asap as I don't want to risk my driving license and the regulations regarding parking tickets LOL. She didn't have a Scooby Doo. Basically said to pay up to avoid costs going up. LOL.

    The land is owned by the hospital, but I think she meant that they aren't dealing with the PCNs. She said the PPC company is in charge of it.

    Try writing to them - I bet their tune changes considerably. Risk your driving licence, my backside.
