    Highview Parking 8th Nov 18 at 10:30 PM
    Hi,

    Yes I’ve read the Newbie thread and yes I understand that all cases are pretty much the same; the ‘deadline’ is tomorrow for the reduced rate parking charge(£50)..the driver didn’t put a ticket on. Simple. Not through arrogance just pure stupidity thinking parking wardens were the only way to get a ticket still.... Is it worth appealing when at fault entirely.

    Any helpful answer would really be appreciated

    just appeal as keeper using the blue text template

    a keeper isnt liable for any of their charges if their NTK has failed the POFA2012 timscales, wording , or both

    nobody is really interested in what the driver may or may not have done , except HIGHVIEW

    so keep the drivers identity a secret , so edit the last post , no I to be used, only the DRIVER did blah blah, or didnt blah blah

    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se

    Failing to pay is certainly a breach of contract, but only if a contract exists, but they appear to be asking considerably more than a local authority would in similar circumstance.


    £241 is tantamount to fraud imo, a lot more than the law allows. The solicitors know this but hope to sucker you into paying.

    Even if they won their claim in court, which is unlikely, the most a judge is likely to award would be £175 - £200, the rest is think of a number money.

    I suggest that you complain to the regulatory body, the SRA about this demand for unlawful costs.

    http://www.sra.org.uk/home/home.page

    Also, complain to your MP

    This is an entirely unregulated industry which is scamming the public with inflated claims for minor breaches of alleged contracts for alleged parking offences, aided and abetted by a handful of low-rent solicitors.

    Parking Eye, CPM, Smart, and others have already been named and shamed in the House of Commons as have Gladstones Solicitors, and BW Legal, (these two law firms take hundreds of these cases to court each week, hospital car parks and residential complex tickets have been especially mentioned. They lose most of them, and have been reported to the regulatory authority by an M.P. for unprofessional conduct

    The problem has become so widespread that MPs have agreed to enact a Bill to regulate these scammers. It has even been suggested that some of these companies have links with organised crime.

    Watch the video of the Second Reading and committee stage in the House of Commons recently. MPs have a very low opinion of this industry.

    http://parliamentlive.tv/event/index/2f0384f2-eba5-4fff-ab07-cf24b6a22918?in=12:49:41

    https://hansard.parliament.uk/commons/2018-07-19/debates/2b90805c-bff8-4707-8bdc-b0bfae5a7ad5/Parking(CodeOfPractice)Bill(FirstSitting)

    and complain in the most robust terms to your MP. With a fair wind they will be out of business in the not too distant future.
    You never know how far you can go until you go too far.

    @OP - please clarify whether this was a ticket affixed to your windscreen, or (the Highview usual) notice sent through the post?

    Just send in the initial appeal template - do it right now - before the 28-day time limit that Highview imposes expires.

    Be careful when using the HV website appeal portal, because there's a nasty little drop down box that is defaulted to 'I was the driver', and defaults back to that (even after changing it) if you make any other inputs subsequently. It's the last thing to check before you take a screen shot and press the 'Submit Appeal' button.

    'I was not the driver' then.

    You're not obliged to hand them any information that might help them.

    Why do you think the banks paid £millions in PPI. ?

    Because their web sites defaulted to "I AGREE"
