    Paid for a ticket BUT got a charge-PARKING EYE

    Paid for a ticket BUT got a charge-PARKING EYE 24th Jan 18 at 2:01 PM
    I purchased a ticket on Parking Eye land before Christmas- and returned well within time limit. Had a letter saying I owed £60, with photo capture and that was that. However, I'd paid for a ticket and indeed still had it. The issue being that the registration number bears no resemblance to mine-not something I checked with two babies in prams, trying to get to a pantomime! It's a random series of letter and numbers so as far as I'm concerned-a fault with their machine. I appealed to them, stating this and screenshotting the ticket, but their reply was that they'd reduce the charge to £20 'as a gesture of goodwill' which I've chosen to not pay! Now had my popla details from them and again-given option to pay £20 for another 14 days. Should I appeal? Email states that the charge will go to £100 if unsuccessful. Should also say I've written a letter with some legalise in it about them not being a 'proper body' so unlwaful to charge and that clearly I'd fulfilled my end of the bargain, but not had a response to that yet...HELP!

    Read the Sticky thread for NEWBIE if you haven't already, and construct a PoPLA appeal using all the template appeal points from post 3 of the NEWBIES.
    Include every point that is available to you.

    Hopefully you didn't reveal the driver's identity like you have on here so that you can appeal as keeper. If they do know who was driving then you can't use the POFA appeal points.

    you know there was a mistake , they do , but popla will rule on facts , it might go to court , you might loose you might win , but waste a lot of your time


    I SAY THIS VERY RELUCTANTLY


    pay them £20 and be done


    if your asda is PE , boycott them , boycott any premises with PE running them

    tell your friends


    sorry , but in this case I think its best for you

    As you haven't tried POPLA yet, get the landowner to cancel it. COMPLAIN to the Store Manager.

    It!!!8217;s at the back of a hotel so it could be owned by them-the penalty ticket actually mentions the name of said hotel?

    It isn't a "penalty" ticket by the way.

    You could try the hotel first and see if they own the land and get it cancelled, Parking Eye won't be the land owners, they only (miss) manage it.
    Usually when parking companies offer a good will gesture like this they do it because they may be on a sticky wicket, and just want to get something back. They are only in existence to make money after all.
    A POPLA appeal will only work on technicalities, signage discrepancies, COP non conformance etc and will mean legwork, research and a lengthy appeal that will need running past this forum.

    You have to make the decision if it's worth the effort.

    Not a penalty. But complain to the Hotel if you were a patron.

    I suspect you are using a phone to browse ....

    please try a PC/ laptop it will make forum navigation far easer...

    the newbies thread is here

    http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=4816822http://


    there are sections and example templates for you to crib from for popla appeals

    good luck .... and don't give in ...

    What?? Two weeks and you still haven't found the NEWBIES thread?

    Have you seen the thread index for the Parking Tickets board?
    It's currently the third thread in that list with a title of:

    **NEWBIES!! PRIVATE PARKING TICKET? OLD OR NEW? **READ THESE FAQS FIRST!** Thankyou!


    When must your PoPLA appeal be in?
    Don't miss that date too.
