    PEA Parking Fine Belfast

    PEA Parking Fine Belfast 13th Sep 17 at 10:50 AM
    Hi
    Just looking for a bit of advice with regards to a parking fine from PEA. The car was parked in a private car park. The fine is £100 or £60 if paid within 14 days. PEA has taken over this car park due to other random people parking their cars in the private car park causing residents to complain ....... However the disc was covered slightly, so hey presto £100 fine.
    What i would like to know is does this fine need to be paid as i am aware many companies are private etc... and if so would anyone have any advice with regards to appealing. I don't believe this is fair nor acceptable as a long term resident and have never had an issue like this before.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. (Apologises for the long post)
    Thanks

    Edit your post. remove any clue as to the drivers identity.

    Belfast so ignore. THey cannot hold the keeper liable, to my knowledge, as POFA only applies to England and Wales.

    PEA are also a private parking company. They cannot issue fines. What you have is not a 'fine', but a speculative invoice.

    Please read the NEWBIES FAQ sticky, post #1 for advice on how to deal with one of these in NI (you and Scotland are more fortunate than those in E/W).

    Know who you're dealing with:

    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.

    You just ignore but do complain to your management company
    who are responsible for what their agents get up to.

    Ask them to cancel this

    Be prepared for "crazy frog" debt collector letters to arrive but
    as they have no power you just ignore them as well

    REMEMBER ..... THE DRIVER IS NOT KNOWN
    Don't be sucked into this scam especially as it's residential

    Yes, the single letter swap typo was fairly obvious.

    Just edit it. It was an unnecessary quote and takes away a choice for the OP that is theirs to make.

    The first post you made on this thread quotes the OPs entire first post, without need.
