    Ashford Parking fine

    Ashford Parking fine 15th Jul 17 at 1:57 PM
    I have just received a PCN from LPS Ltd.
    The vehicle stayed for 15 mins, at the car park entrance it said free for Tesco customers.

    It is now apparent that the car park is split into 2, with the second area liable to parking charges. Looking at google maps, there is a small sign at the point where the carpark becomes another carpark

    The letter is addressed to me, the registered keeper and has anpr pictures of my vehicle. They have stated that they obtained my details from DVLA.

    They also state Section 4 POFA they will recover the fee from the registered keeper.

    Having looked at the letters on the forum and they all seem to state LPS not getting my details, but they have already.

    Whats best to do?

    Many Thanks

    It is not a fine.

    Please edit your post to remove information about who stayed. Only ever refer to The Driver or The Keeper who are two different people as far as anyone is concerned.

    Please confirm the name of the parking company as many have similar initials.

    Once you have done that, send the relevant template letter from the NEWBIES. This will depend on whether the parking scammers are BPA or IPC members.

    The letter in the newbies section says if they obtain the keepers data, they already have.

    I dont quite get if it is legal obligation to transfer liability from the registered keeper to the driver, how can the keeper not be liable for the payment

    Pics of the layout, signs and split is necessary if this goes to court. If you were confused, you have to show how the confusion arose rather than just claiming it.

    Just the way the courts work.
    Life's for living, get on with it rather than worrying about these. If they hassle, counter claim.

But why do people not understand the wording? Who honestly cares, what is the problem? Remove or edit that paragraph then if you don't understand why it is there.

    How does it matter, honestly. The wording is there to get a POPLA code and to pave the way for a DPA claim if suitable, later.

    PRIVATE PCN in England/Wales? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT

    Click on the trail, top of this page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    DON'T read old advice to ignore, unless in Scotland/NI.
