    Hello lovely, helpful people. Starting a new thread as advised. I have filled in and completed the acknowledgement of service form and now ready for the defence part.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    We will, when we see your circumstances, which PPC, what happened (without saying who was driving) whether you have appealed before, AND your draft defence for us to help with.

    Thank you Coupon-mad! Having now spoken to a solicitor I believe that I will be unlikely to win this.

    For better or worse, I chose to ignore all of the letter in the hopes that they would give up. This was the advice that I was largely seeing on various forums (I only found this one more recently, sadly), and this was obviously the wrong tactic, but I made my bed and now I shall sleep in it if needs be.

    I am happy to give you what you have for above, but do you think at this stage there is even any point in trying to fight it, given that I have ignored all of the letters.

    Many thanks.

    It's up to you

    Your solicitor isn't an expert in defending claims from ppcs! Hope you weren't charged for that advice

    So do lots of the defendants we help - and we've only seen ONE lose. He just then paid...around £160 - £180 or so, similar to the demand now - so it's a no-brainer to defend most cases unless they are a replica of the Beavis case, an retail park overstay with clear signs with the £100 in large lettering.

    Over 99% here win and most also get their costs back, this week someone posted they got £175 in costs at the hearing they won. Normal, here!

    Yes. The solicitor is not an expert on parking law. Tell us more.
