Court paperwork received - Ticket for leaving car park. What evidence?
I got a ticket back in 2018 for a leisure park car park, where I went to the gym. Supposedly for leaving the car park(there's a town centre and train station nearby). I didn't recall leaving the car park, as I never go to the shops in the town, only there for the gym(which is allowed). In any event I ignored the ticket and got a few letters which then stopped eventually, and I moved. few years later to now, I got another letter and then now the proper court claim form through.
From what I can gather, the costs are unlikely to go up if I challenge it now and lose, so have nothing to lose by doing so. Currently sits at £308.24, being 223.24 amount claimed, 35 court fees and 50 legal rep fees.
As said, I used that carpark only for the gym. I know that purden of proof is much lower in civil courts, but I assume they'd still have to prove in some way that I left the carpark, be it CCTV or a parking attendant witness, neither of which I imagine they have. Or would they not even need that?
Those are pretty much my main grounds to appeal it. Don't know if that will be successful or not.
