    Oh dear.

    My friend parked up and entered 3 into the ticket machine for 24hr parking. A ticket was issued, which she displayed. But.......there was a problem which she didn't spot: the machine only registered 2, which gave just 4hrs parking. A PCN issued.

    He insists that 3 was entered into the machine. He didn't check the ticket. A poorly-lit car park during the hours of darkness.

    This isn't looking good. No evidence that the correct payment was made and a fail to check the ticket details.

    Doe hehave any grounds for appeal?

    I could really do with some help on this.

    2. Whether they are pursuing me as Driver or Keeper.
    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.

    I can't decide if I'm dealing with weasels or idiots.

    Their response is laughable; a few photos of the vehicle and copies of previous correspondence.

    Needless to say, I've shot back, pointing out the ***cough cough*** 'deficiencies', suggesting they refer back to client and reminding them that I'll chase a stay if they try court.

    Oh, and I've thrown in an SAR as well. It wouldn't be fair not to.
