    NI PCN parking eye ltd, can you still ignore? 15th Jul 17 at 3:06 PM
    mum and dad visited Omagh, NI and parked in a car park where you have to type your registration into the module and pay (no sticker on the window). this was a Sunday and as any ordinary person would imagine, parking almost everywhere on a Sunday is free therefore they didn't pay, just assumed no payment was necessary

    PCN was ignored and now they have debt management plus or whatever they are called threatening court action and the only thing they have to support their claim of success is that in 2013, Mr bervais (England) or whoever lost in court against parking eye ltd because he parked in a free parking zone beyond the 2 hour limit on a weekday.

    the case is relatively different but do they still have a leg to stand on after the success of this similar court case?

    i've read the newbie thread but it may be somewhat out of date on this occasion. thanks in advance

    The newbies thread not out of date, and if in NI you can ignore, debt collectors are also Muppets you can ignore.

    Never ever assume anything with parking firms, they are unregulated scammers.

    Beavis was a different scenario anyway, never speak to anyone over the phone about a parking event, and never, especially in NI, divulge the driver.

    Parking Eye who are the most court hungry PPC in the UK know they are on to a looser that's why they are trying the bully boy debt collection route.

    The newbies sticky was created in 2013, but is bang up to date. You can check this out by looking at the 'Last edited by Coupon-mad on xx/xx/xxx' shown at the foot of each post (section).
    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.

    Any PPC can decide to take you to court. They can only apply POFA in England but if they choose to pursue you in the Ulster court, then they can do so.

    So providing they don't know the driver nothing can happen anyway? And I'm sure I don't have to name the driver legally? Thanks

    No - not exactly.


    But as long as they never find out who was driving they can never win!

    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.
