Hi
Just looking for some advice,just received a PCN from Civil enforcement.The details are we were witnesses to a road traffic accident and we followed the two cars involved to a nearby hotel, one of the cars has since been written off and the occupants of the car that caused the accident ran off so we stayed with the couple whose car had been hit and waited for the police to arrive so we could give statements.
Our reward was a PCN,do i ignore it/contact the hotel whose car park it was.
Regards:mad:

  • Contact the hotel in the first instance and don't ignore.
    Do not identify the driver.

  • Thank you for response,tried contacting hotel but duty manager not in till later so will try again later.
  • Thank you
    Have asked couple whose car was written off for crime number.
    Don't suppose they will send a PCN to the police car that was there as well:D

    Was the ticket issued by a 'warden' or was it via CCTV?

  • i am assuming CCTV as we were on car on 10/12/2016 and PCN only arrived today.

    the fact that a police car was "on scene" and with a crime number can only help your case and I am sure the hotel will wish to get these cancelled, which is your best way to get this sorted

    nip it in the bud, but gather evidence in case it goes to court

    Well in that case they will have also clocked the police car which strengthens your case.

  • Just spoken to the duty manager of the hotel who was about as much use as a chocolate fireguard,all he kept repeating was that there are signs on the car park and that i would have to deal with the PCN company myself.:mad:

    if they are part of a chain , complain in writing (or email) to their CEO and tell them that when the police attended and you were asked to remain on site then surely the circumstances warrant a cancellation due to exceptional unforeseen circumstances

    remember , its the squeaky wheel that demands the oil that gets it

    so you have to go in loud and hard and fight your case , dont be fobbed off

    and yes appeal to CEL anyway , that is a given for any BPA member
