    Charge Notice from Total Parking Solutions in Scotland

    Charge Notice from Total Parking Solutions in Scotland 6th Dec 17 at 6:47 PM
    Hi, regards a Charge Notice letter (to registered keeper) from TPS for a parking over their time limit. TBH, there are notices all over the car park so that the claim of poor signage cant really be used as an excuse.
    The car park in question (East Road Retail Park) has been mentioned in several other places after a google search.
    My question is does the Registered Keeper / Vehicle Driver scenario still apply in Scotland where the charge notice should be applied against the driver and not the registered keeper.
    I read a fair number of articles but most are a few years old now and I'm wondering if the laws may have changed e.g. as the result of a court ruling.
    Also, would it still be the case to ignore and not respond to PCN. After reading a number of posts and watching a few youtube videos (inc the Parkingeye vs Beavis one) the general consensus seems to be that ignoring it is the wrong thing to do.
    Any advice or suggestions or thoughts would be very welcome
    Many thanks
    Alan

    edit the above and remove any hint of who was driving , this is a public forum

    use THE DRIVER and THE KEEPER when referring to the people involved on the day and afterwards

    the NEWBIES FAQ sticky thread at the top of this forum is up to date and as no laws have changed in Scotland then the IGNORE advice is correct and always has been

    the PPC can issue proceedings against a driver (if known)

    there is no POFA2012 for Scotland

    IGNORE old videos too
    Newbies !!
    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

    Nope - Ignoring is still the way in Scotland.

    Everything is fully explained in the Newbies Sticky at the top of this forum, for Scotland, England, NI and Wales.

    Yes, in Scotland, it does, but don’t expect the PPC to even start to understand that. They will plough on regardless.

    Their business model is one of continued harassment and intimidation in the hope that the keeper will either cough up to make it stop, or dob in the driver.
    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.
