    PCM Issued parking ticket at Hayes & Harlington Station

    PCM Issued parking ticket at Hayes & Harlington Station 9th Oct 17 at 7:33 PM
    Hi All

    I got a letter in the post from PCM issuing a fine for dropping someone off outside Hayes and Harlington station (High Point Village). As I have been made aware by the forums there is a 10 min grace period when dropping people off and will highlight this in the appeal.

    I am writing to find out if anyone has been successful with getting PCM off their back (based on the 10 min window) by following the instructions in the newbies thread? And what sort of response they had to that defence?

    I have read through previous postings regarding the same company / incident location but can't seem to find what the resolution was.

    Any advice or pointers would be greatly appreciated.

    you willl find that parking companies reject the vast majority of appeals no matter what is said , so its unlikey to work (even if it is mentioned)

    as this was a station , POFA2012 does not apply , bylaws apply

    so do not reveal who the owner or driver are, appeal as KEEPER only , expect a rejection and then ignore unless you get court papers

    the NEWBIES faq sticky thread does explain all of this

    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

    Please first confirm the name of the parking company as there are several with the same or similar initials who belong to different ATAs, meaning that the appeal templates are different.

    If the car park belongs to the station, then railway byelaws probably apply. If this is the case then you should add that point to the initial appeal template, plus the point that the scammers have failed to allow the grace period(s) stipulated by their ATA, so they should cancel fifthwith.
    Don't hold your breath though.

    Make sure you do not reveal the identity of the driver. Only ever refer to The Driver and The Keeper.
