    MSE Update November 2017

    Hi everyone

    Please could all forumites using this board re-read our original post below.

    Thank you!


    Please read our Don't Pay Unfair Parking Tickets News story for MSE's stance.


    Hi everyone,

    As you’ll be aware this board was set up for users to find factual information about parking tickets fines, whether they are enforceable or not, and the appeals and actions process.

    What it was not set up to do was to pursue any one individual or company to the extent that some users on here have, again, despite our previous requests not to.

    You might think it's your "right" and that we should back you fully, but we are governed by the law of the land and our Rules and T&Cs make it pretty clear that posting names and personal details, and making personal comments about others is simply not allowed.

    In recent months, we have again had to deal with complaints about this board. Here at MSE we fight your corner as a consumer and we believe much of the private parking industry is a Wild West full of many cowboys ripping off honest motorists, as we’ve seen and heard too many stories to suggest otherwise (and some staff here have been on the end of unscrupulous tactics). However, some firms do also act fairly.

    The problem we face is when people make allegations without evidence against a specific company, calling them “scammers” or “criminals”. Without evidence, this becomes a legal problem and we may have to remove threads and posts to protect the site. We prefer to keep our resources focused on fighting hard for you to fight unfair tickets and keeping that debate unabashed than having to deal with a legal sideshow about ‘is the name-calling fair?’ – so please help us help you by moderating the language not to accuse of illegality.

    We are a small team managing over 150 Forum boards, all requiring resource. So we cannot investigate every complaint to gather the required evidence, sadly. We’d love to do just that to fight your corner even further but it is not always possible.

    We can support your factual comments, we can’t support personal remarks about others

    We can only support factual comment that operates within our Rules and T&Cs. Personal, antagonistic arguments against individuals break these and we cannot defend it. If you keep things non-personal, on topic, factual, can prove everything you say and work within these rules and T&Cs, we will always do our best to defend your comment, as we do everywhere. If not we shall have to speak with you and if it continues, may have to remove a poster’s posting privileges.

    We hope this comes across in the manner it is intended. Please help us to help you, by working with us to defend your comments.

    Thank you

    Hope you dont mind this reply. I have read the sticky and blue writing template. Just find the information overwhelming. I have mental health issues so I struggle with lots of information - sorry about that.

    The keeper received a parking charge notice from UKPC stating that they were a staff member parked in no staff parking area.

    Just for some clarity what does the keeper do next - do they wait 26 days before doing anything at all?

    Also regarding the blue text, the red text underneath it states for the keeper of the vehicle to put their name and theyre address after yours sincerely is that correct ?

    Thanks for your help. I struggle with stress a lot. Any advice would be great. Ive bookmarked the stickies. But I just need some help with digesting the information

    To be honest, this sticky needs locking to prevent random postings.
    Please note, we are not a legal, residential or credit advice forum, rather one that helps motorists fight private parking charges, primarily at the 'front-end' of the process.
