    UK Car Park Management ticket 9th Oct 17 at 6:52 PM
    Hi there

    This is my first post. Back in July I received a parking charge while shopping in a Tesco, which is surrounded by apartments, I parked where I have always parked. It just so happened that UKCP have moved in around the area and I didn't realise. Anyway. I'm type 1 Diabetic and was having a hypoglycemic episode (Low blood sugar) which I needed to fix straight away. The bays in front of the Tesco were all full. When I came back I had a Parking Charge on my window.

    After 4 or 5 days days I went to appeal on their site and my details were not recognized by the system. But they WORKED on the payment page. So I just left it and forgot about it. I realised the day before I needed to appeal and had to quickly write a letter. Well I explained I was having a medical emergency and that their website is crap so I couldn't appeal online....needless to say they rejected the appeal and said I was late, and the fine is now £100. Can they just dismiss the fact that I was having a medical emergency that required me to get off the road as soon as possible?

    Thanks

    yes they can (its an unregulated industry , which is why they are all called parking cowboys) , unless they issue a court claim and then a judge will decide and you can put your case forward at that point

    bear in mind they have signed up to a trade body with a CoP, so what does that CoP say about your issues ?

    if you are covered by the Equality Act 2010 , then you may have a counter claim to put forward in any case

    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

    Have you read the Sticky thread for NEWBIES?

    Did you appeal as keeper or did you give away the diver's identity when you appealed?

    You have appealed to an IPC member, it has been rejected as expected, so you are now in ignore mode for the next six years unless you get real court papers. This is explained in the NEWBIES thread.

    Did you complain to the landowner? That and complaining to your MP are the only things left to do.

    You need a doctors cert to confirm you suffer from this

    There is little more you can do with UKCPM, as it's a waste
    of time dealing with the brain dead

    Bearing in mind that only a court can decide, not plebbies,
    do expect stupid letters from spaced out debt collectors
    who HAVE NO POWER AND SPOUT RUBBISH.
    Could be followed by threats from a solicitor called Gladstones
    who are so incompetent, it makes our eyes water with laughter

    Just sit it out and if you receive any of the Gladstones rubbish
    come back here

    In the meantime, there is one person who may be interested
    in the bad conduct of UKCPM ...

    She is Theresa May, you know the PM who makes promises
    she keeps breaking

    She suffers from type 1 diabetes and knows all about
    having a hypoglycemic episode and what that entails

    mayt@parliament.uk

    Lay it on the line to May, she is only the PM and in todays
    world she is just a pawn in the scale of things
