    SCS Law want 600

    SCS Law want 600 15th Dec 17 at 8:20 PM
    Hi everyone, apologies in advance for starting a new thread but I've visited the newbies thread and my head is spinning.

    So to give you guys my story, the driver was running late to work a few times during 2016 and decided to park behind their work building. Now I know the driver wasn't supposed to park there but he didn't have much of a choice otherwise he'd be late to work and his workplace is pretty strict when it comes to punctuality.

    This happened 4 times in 2016, although one of the day was a bank holiday, so not sure if that makes much of a difference. The dates were 28/03/16, 14/10/16, 19/10/16 and 09/11/16.

    On each occasion the keeper got a ticket and on the advice of his friends the keeper ignored them and chucked them away and did the same thing with the follow up letters which were posted to the keepers house.

    Almost 2 years later the keeper has received a letter from SCS Law stating that they are acting on behalf of UK Parking Control Ltd and want to recover the charges for the 4 occasions the driver parked there. Each ticket is now 150 and the keeper now apparently owe them 600 because it was 4 times that the driver parked there.

    The keeper doesn't really know what to do and has no idea what his options are right now, hoping you guys can help me out.

    Were these ANPR camera PCNs, if so were they received within 14 days of the event?

    Or were they windscreen PCNs, in which case were the NTKs received between day 29 and day 56?

    Do they have the right words on for keeper liability, when compared to para 8 or 9 of the POFA? It's linked in the NEWBIES thread post #1, for people who 'want to dig deeper'. So you can check yourself, it's easy, it's bullet points, nothing legalese!

    Have you ever said who was driving?

    URGENTLY go back to your first post and remove the awful admissions, DO THAT NOW!
    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:
    Top of the page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.

    This latest letter says I have 30 days to respond.

    Standard stuff.

    Use that thirty days to further understand what will happen after that.

    Hint: it's back to post #2 of the NEWBIES FAQ sticky/pinned thread.
