    Well done again!

    I'm going to link your POPLA Decisions post, which shows your POPLA wording, into the NEWBIES thread 3rd post about POPLA and Golden Tickets, so people can use your wording.

  • All,

    to round out the saga - as mentioned in my original post, three PCNs were issued to me (as keeper) and not knowing any better, I paid the first one (not knowing two more were invalid). This was before any of the appeals process, and I appealed all three, assuming I'd never see my money back for the one I had paid.

    Well, after the three were cancelled by POPLA, I got three letters from PE, one per PCN.

    The two relating to the unpaid PCNs were basically "we aren't pursuing it, but we provide an important function - don't do it again!"

    The one relating to the paid PCN told me it had been cancelled, and my refund cheque would be in the mail !!:):):)

    I'll be happier when it arrives (and clears), but more than I was expecting.

    On a related note, is there any purpose in punitively pursing PE? Thinking along the lines of whether they requested the keeper data of the car AFTER they had any 'right' to?

    I'm not looking to start a crusade, but wonder if there could be another couple of slamdunks in here. I'm guessing IF they requested Keeper data after the 14 days that's naughty, but they could have requested before then and just not actioned it.

    Buy a lottery ticket - quick! I can't think of any other PPC who would do this. Maybe best behaviour in light of Parliamentary deliberations on Private Parking?

    They are able to request keeper details from the DVLA for up to 6 months after the parking incident. They then write to the keeper seeking driver details - if this is beyond PoFA timescales they cannot invoke Keeper Liability, but can pursue the driver if details are (stupidly) provided to them - that's all.
    Please note, we are not a legal advice forum. I personally don't get involved in critiquing court case Defences/Witness Statements, so unable to help on that front. Please don't ask. .

  • And to round out the saga, ParkingEye sent me a cheque for the one I had paid and THEN appealed for the full £60, and the cheque cleared!

    So definitely worth appealing ones you've already paid!

    You are a legend!

    I have only seen that achieved on a handful of occasions in over ten years of helping people fight PCNs, and only ever from ParkingEye.

    It's been said before, their one redeeming feature is that they will consider late appeals, even after paying. No other PPC would.
