DCB Legal Letter, Still in Appeal?? Urgent
Please read all of this for context, I appreciate it!
Essentially what happened was the supposed driver at the time had recieved a windscreen ticket at a car park, but with the wrong vehicle registration number.
40 days later, an NTK was recieved.
I have never really fought a parking fine before, most of it came from this forum.
I gained the confidence and sent an email with
"As the Parking Charge Notice mentioned above had a different Vehicle Registration Number (VRN) to that of the vehicle, you have failed to meet the requirements of PoFA 2012 Schedule 4 P para8 8 in that the windscreen ticket should 'specify the vehicle'. In other words, I see that this does not / did not have the correct car registration on it originally according to you, so it is a nullity. No Notice to Driver for vehicle registration specified at the time was given, therefore the strict requirements of the PoFA have not been met and me the keeper cannot be held liable.
You have also failed to comply with the requirements of Schedule 4 of The Protection Of Freedoms Act 2012 namely, but not limited to, failing to deliver the notice within the relevant period of 14 days as prescribed by section 9 (4) of the Act. You cannot, therefore, transfer liability for the alleged charge from the driver at the time to me, the keeper.
There is no legal requirement to name the driver at the time and I will not be doing so.
I require you to cancel this charge immediately and remove my personal data from your systems within 21 days."
Their response was by email:
"Please rest assured we have amended our records to reflect the correct information. It should be noted that irrespective of a minor error occurring when the parking charge was initially generated, this does not mean that the parking charge was incorrectly issued.
The parking charge notice was issued by one of our parking operatives and a parking charge was placed on your windscreen. This provided you with an early pay discount period of 14 days."I have the appealed with roughly the same contents within the email within like the last 1-2 days of the 28 day period to respond to the NTK.
64 days later, I have then recieved a letter asking me to provide more information for my appeal, primarily to name the driver. I have not responded to this.
(Removed by Forum Team)
I have then recieved letters from many weirdos and eventuate ZZPS , who I informed that my fine is under appeal and they cannot try to collect money from me. They have cancelled the collection on their side of things.
83 days later, at the start of this month I have now received a dcblegal letter asking me to pay £170 and respond within 30 days. I have about a week to respond left now from those 30 days.
I have contacted UKPC via email to ask why I'm being placed in debt collection when I haven't even got an appeal decision. Their response was
Their response was:
"Your name and address was obtained from the DVLA, as you are the registered keeper of the vehicle. The parking charge notice was sent to you on [omitted] and a final reminder was sent to you on [omitted]. Your appeal was received on [omitted] and a response was sent to the same address requesting more information. Please see attached PDF copies of these notices. After no payment or correspondence from you, the parking charge was passed to our third-party debt recovery company for further action."
