    Smart Parking ... in the press again ?? 7th Oct 17 at 8:47 AM
    Father faces court after refusing to pay £60 fine handed to him when he accidentally entered a zero instead of letter O as he keyed in his registration to get free parking

    He said ..... "They need to have some common sense." ?

    The circs are no different to many that come here after wrongly ignoring


    The real message from that article is you shouldn't just ignore any invoice you get - otherwise you could end up with a court claim to deal with!

    I can see the headlines now "Smart Parking lose in court".
    You never know how far you can go until you go too far.

    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.
