CN For Hire Care, stopping near LBA

Hi, I am new to the thread and have spent a few hours reading through and very helpful. It would seem my instance falls between a number of categories so would appreciate guidance on the best approach. The Hire company has provided my name and address and I have received a CN for stopping in a no stopping zone. The driver actually turned into the exit road as, was having problems understanding the hire car satnav which was telling the driver to turn around. As it it was an exit road, the driver made an emergency stop. A passenger got out to see if could get bearings and then obviously this CN has come through the post. I have seen posts mentioning emergency stops and also other standard appeals and not seem to tie in to the hire car situation and how I need to reply. Sorry if I have missed prior threads, but I have read through a good deal and not sure which line of approach is best. It will be first appeal as just received the notice and have to appeal on the same day of receipt, so no pressure.

    Did the hire company provide your details as the hirer/lessee or the driver (they could not know who was driving unless they were in the car)? Which PPC is involved?  Plan A in the NEWBIE sticky is still good advice but also read some more no stopping at airport threads.  Tell the hire company NOT to pay on your behalf as you are dealing with it.
  • I'm not sure I'd bother with plan A in relation to a hire car because PCNs for hire cars are fantastically easy to beat via Plan B if the driver is not identified, and that can easily go wrong in a Plan A correspondence.  This is doubly so if the no-stopping zone is in an airport where there is potentially driver liability bur absolutely no keeper or hirer liability.

    Before shooting yourself in the foot with an ill-advised communication, please post a copy of the notice you received, redacting your name, address, vehicle number and any reference but keeping all dates visible.

    Can you please clarify what the initials LBA and CN stand for.  My previous reply assumed you had received a parking charge notice from a private parking company as that is what we usually deal with here. If you’ve received a penalty charge notice from an enforcement authority like a local council, Dart Charge or Transport for London you should make that clear and seek advice at https://www.ftla.uk/civil-penalty-charge-notices-(councils-tfl-and-so-on)/

    LBA presumably = Leeds Bradford Airport and CN = Charge Notice and again presuming Parking Charge Notice

    It'll be VCS at an Airport.
    PRIVATE 'PCN'? DON'T PAY BUT DON'T IGNORE IT (except N.Ireland).
