PCN received after 14 days

Hello,

I received a parking fine from SABA for failing to pay for parking at Ickenham Station car park. The parking offence happened on the 6th November but I didn’t receive the letter until 22nd November. I appealed on this basis but it was refused as they claim they sent the letter on 15th November.

If I appeal to Popla, does anyone know what my chance of winning is? I don’t want to risk going to court.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

    Hopefully you appealed as the vehicle's keeper and the parking company do not know who was driving.

    In that case, this is easily winnable.

    There is no way that they can transfer any driver's liability to the keeper because this car park is covered by railway byelaws.

    Confirmation that it is subject to TfL Byelaws as from November 2014:-

    100% easy win.  You can't get easier.

    Don't tell us, the PCN is for £127 like the one shown in the NTK pictures thread?

    If not please show both sides.
    PRIVATE 'PCN'? DON'T PAY BUT DON'T IGNORE IT (except N.Ireland).

  • Oh dear... SABA citing PoFA for a charge on non-relevant land. A complaint to the BPA should also be initiated.
