    Parking Fine - ParkingEye 15th Jun 17 at 3:44 PM
    Parking fine - 12 May 2017 at 16:59:31, at Royal United Hospital Bath - Car Park 1a .
    On the day in question, left the hospital and paid for parking by card following the machine's instructions. The receipt the machine printed looked no different to the one previously received the week before on a previous visit. This latest receipt even had the amount printed as £3, so therefore assumed this sum of money had been deducted from bank account. Several weeks later, received a PCN with time and photos of the car in question coming and going, stating no payment had been received. hoiked out said receipt, scanned it and then saw (as scanner enlarged the small ticket/ receipt to A4) the word 'void' at the top in tiny print, obscured by other text. would have thought the amount would say £0.00 but it didn't so just didn't notice the payment hadn't gone through. have appealed and the appeal was declined, now have to appeal to POPLA. So, the long and short of it is a) didn't find this forum until after appeal was sent. b) never did pay for parking even though thought one had c) feel this was a misleading ticket/ receipt and possibly a faulty machine not connecting card to bank. Can anyone advise me where I stand?

    First edit your post to remove details of who was driving

    If you are still in time do your popla appeal.

    See the newbies FAQ thread near the top of the forum on how to deal with this

    And at the same time complain to Pals at the hospital
