    PCN Lee Valley Velopark - Help please 4th Jul 17 at 10:49 AM
    Hi,

    So I'm the keeper of a vehicle which has received a PCN.
    This 'fine' is from ParkingEye. (This was 7 days after).

    There is a 2 hour time limit and the car was there for an extra 40 minutes.


    I understand I should first appeal to Parkingeye with this paragraph:

    'I believe that your signs fail the test of 'large lettering' and prominence, as established in ParkingEye Ltd v Beavis.Your unremarkable and obscure signs were not seen by the driver, are in very small print and the terms are not readable to drivers.'



    This might sound a dumb question, but the signs were pretty clear, do I still send the email anyway ?

    No reply from the manager.

    I'm thinking of throwing in the towel and paying the £60.

    What do you rate my chances of getting this cancelled via a POPLA appeal ?

    Please don't fund and sponsor the scam, or you are joining them. Be ashamed to even consider it, even for an 'easy life'.

    We are passionate about this scam, you know. I didn't write that letter for fun, or for you to fold.

    Fair point Coupon-mad.

    Okay I'll stick it out. I won't pay unless I get called into court ( I don't have the legal knowledge or time to handle that).

    Even if you get a claim that doesn't mean you have to or inevitably will have to attend a hearing.

    I had a bit of a rant at my running cub chairman and he told me the leisure club has contacted privateEye. Maybe they just didn't tell me as they are unsure what will happen and don't want to give me false hope.

    Hopefully will hear back a positive outcome and I'll have learnt to be more patient. :O

    Will Ian Hislop be drummed in to help, then?!
