    Parking eye appeal

    Parking eye appeal 5th Dec 17 at 1:08 PM
    Hi I'm a newbie

    I followed Martin's guide on appealing a parking eye ticket. My husband was driving but I have failed to identify him as the driver as per the advice.
    There was no barrier or information in the hotel he went to to advise of charges. He was there for 43 minutes and they want £60 in 14 days. He didn't see signs as it was dark.

    They have written to say the appeal is on hold while they await more information and it looks like they want me to name the driver.

    What should I do now?

    Thanks in advance

    First step - remove any references to who was driving and use "the keeper" and "the driver" where applicable..

    Second step - spend some time read the various sticky threads in this forum, particularly the Newbies thread that answers your questions..

    you SHOULD have followed the advice in the NEWBIES FAQ sticky thread at the top of this forum (not martins advice)

    this is what you still need to be doing too, following that NEWBIES sticky thread , so start drafting your popla appeal (see post #3 of that thread) whilst awaiting a popla code

    So should I write back saying I'm appealing as the keeper or do nothing and wait for the code?
    Never fought one of these before

    Looking at the sticky thread it appears I have the 'golden ticket' without the paragraph on the end.

    Wish I'd seen this before I sent the letter.

    The original paperwork says date of event 2/11
    Issued 14/11 and we received on 17/11

    Am I also right in thinking that they took too long to issue?

    it is worth a try , yes

    in theory it is deemed to take 2 days to deliver a letter , so depends when it was postmarked , so they either cut it close or failed

    and if the POFA2012 paragraph is not there , they are not following POFA2012 so the keeper has no liability (a golden ticket)
