    Pre- Emptive advice 7th Oct 17 at 10:48 AM
    Just checking that the person who drives my car can safely ignore the newly erected smart parking restrictions in the area which said person has been parking for a number of years.


    They are from SMART parking and I am in NI, am I right in saying should PCN arrive to me the registered keeper I can safely use it to light the fire?

    know who the driver is before action but that will not stop
    them giving out invoices as they rely on ignorance from
    the motorist
    Smart know this already.
    If you can, tell everyone in this area the limitations of Smart

    Ni residents are covered there.

    The advice is to complain to the retailer but don't appeal.

    Obviously don't burn any lbcca or court correspondence

    Is the car park in NI?
    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.

    While we are not a forum that encourages fly parking, or parking against the wishes of the landowner (as described via the signage), your assumptions re NI are correct - at present. Who knows what the DCLG review of private parking might throw out for the UK.

    We see PPCs as operating on the edge of legality and decency, we encourage motorists not to follow suit.

    Careful you don't get burnt!

    As above: PPCs cannot enforce parking charges against the keeper, in NI (just like in Scotland) if they don't know who was driving.

    That doesn't mean that militant parking won't come back to bite you on the ariss.
