    Total Parking Solutions (TPS) at Lincoln Hospital threatening staff again! 28th Apr 16 at 9:28 AM
    From the weekly newsletter to staff...

    Enforceable parking fines
    Following a number of concerns and comments about the enforcement of parking charge notices, we have received the following response from Total Parking Solutions (TPS).

    “Our parking charge notices are indeed legal and enforceable, although some operators choose not to pursue single cases (a single parking charge notice) due to court costs, others take action on all cases. As the operator, we have up to six years to bring legal action against the debtor. We have already taken legal action against a number of persistent offenders in recent months. We would recommend anyone that has received a parking ticket appeals to us and not to ignore if they have genuine mitigating circumstances”.

    This is a recent landmark case concerning the parking operator ‘Parking eye’ (link to bbc)

    FOUR points:

    1) TPS like any other operator don't usually give a damn about mitigating circumstances.
    2) This is in a staff email - its directed at staff, who have PAID FOR permits, but often the staff parking is full.
    3) Parking Eye case has little to no relevance here.
    4) Enforceable parking FINES you say?!

    Parking fine, help advice needed please
    Hi, as the registered keeper of a car parked in the barriered staff car park a parking fine ticket was placed on the window screen. This was (unfortunately) ignored now the person has a pre-court notice letter requesting payment of £110.
    The person driving the car used a pass to get into the barriered car park, placed the valid permit on the dash but it must of blown off when closing the door. Any advice on what to do now would be gratefully received. Should the person just pay up? is this likely to go to court? guess they should have appealed but it is now too late. Now worried.

    It might go to small claims but if you read other TPS claim threads (there are not many) we win 99% of well-defended claims, for posters who stick around and follow the advice.

    Start by reading post #2 of the NEWBIES thread, re a LBCCC (pre court letter) & how to reply. Even a claim is no big deal, honestly! No risk of a CCJ by defending, and no huge costs for the one person here who has lost at a hearing, in over a year (they just paid about £200 and it was over, no effect on credit rating).

    Should the person just pay up?
    Nope, absolutely NOT. Read plenty of other court claim threads, honestly this is do-able and winnable.
    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:
    Top of the page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.
