    You *could* send the 2 hour challenge, for fun. Only because it's Highview and they hate it and cancel!

    the parking company have no way to find out who was driving, so leave it that way

    They found out who I was and I live in Scotland

    No, they found out that you were the registered keeper. Big difference!

    Thank you. From reading through all this I can't believe the industry are allowed to operate like this!? Do you think I can expect months/years of continued letters? There was a really good thread on pepipoo (topic 74304) showing the letter chain for Highview with Tesco but sadly it stops at the point the poster receives a threat of court action from Debt Recovery Plus :S

    Why do you think that is?

    Good point, fisherjim!

    Errrm...of course it does! Because that's when Highview/DRP give up!

    Haha good point both! Just a shame the poster didn't return to give the final outcome!

    I'm intrigued about the 2 hour challenge... I've searched but can't find it referenced?

    Here you go:

    Just remove the stuff about POPLA, as you won't get a POPLA code re Scottish land.

    Replace that paragraph, by saying you know that as keeper, you cannot be held liable because this occurred on land in Scotland, so they may as well cancel immediately because you won't be paying and they have no case to harass you.

    I would actually do this even though you don't have to, because I am confident Highview will fold (again). And it does no harm, as long as you are careful to only choose 'registered keeper' when appealing online to little old Highview.

    Thanks, Coupon-mad! How's the text below?


    I am appealing as the keeper and ONLY Schedule 4 of the Protection of Freedoms Act (POFA), (or evidence of who was driving) can cause a keeper appellant to be deemed to be the liable party. The PCN makes no attempt to pass liability to the keeper after 28 days. A vehicle can be driven by any person (with the consent of the owner) as long as the driver is insured.

    There is no dispute that the driver was entitled to drive the car and I can confirm that they were, but I am exercising my right not to name that person. As the keeper of the vehicle, it is my right to choose not to name the driver, yet still not be lawfully held liable if an operator is not using or complying with Schedule 4.

    As the registered keeper I cannot be held liable for this PCN as it relates to land in Scotland. I request the prompt cancellation of this PCN as I will not be paying and you have no case to continue with requests for payment.

    I [STRIKE]request[/STRIKE] insist the prompt cancellation of this PCN as I will not be paying and you have no case to continue with requests for payment from the registered keeper of the vehicle.

    Should you, or your agents continue to do so, I will immediately refer this case to Mr Dunford of the DVLA.

    Just a couple of suggested edits. You never 'request' anything from a scammer.
