    MET service station parking ticket

    MET service station parking ticket 3rd Oct 17 at 1:15 PM
    Hi all,

    Firstly sorry - I know there are lots of previous posts. I have read through some of them and the read first thread but neither answer my situation exactly.

    The driver of the car recently went to a service station and accidentally parked in a Starbucks customer only bay and stupidly did not read the signs. They then went to McDonald's for lunch.

    Three weeks later, we have received a letter from MET Parking Services asking for up to £100. MET Parking Services for appear to be a member of the BPA.

    Their evidence online are the following photos:
    -driving in
    -parked and getting out
    -walking away from the car towards McDonald's
    -returning to the car and driving off

    I have seen many posted advising people to challenge or completely ignore the letters from MET, when they have been a customer at MET's clients' shop. How should we proceed? Is it worth us challenging this or should we pay the '14 day discounted price'?

    I really appreciate you taking the time to read and reply to my thread.

    Many thanks.

    edit the above to remove any hint of who was driving

    they only have pictures of the vehicle and driver

    you appeal this as KEEPER and then take it to POPLA if they fail to cancel

    remember , you are the KEEPER, assume that rooney was the driver

    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se

    or should we pay the '14 day discounted price'?

    Good joke...
    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.

    haha you both sound pretty optimistic about a successful appeal(?!). I suppose this scaremongering is how these terrible companies get away with what they do.

    If you use St Arbucks, even just to use the lavatory then surely you ARE a customer.
