    Parking charge

    Parking charge 14th Jun 17 at 9:09 PM
    Parking fine - 12 May 2017 at 16:59:31, at Royal United Hospital Bath - Car Park 1a .
    On the day in question, I left the hospital and paid for my parking by card following the machine's instructions. The receipt the machine printed looked no different to the one I had received the week before on a previous visit. This latest receipt even had the amount printed as 3, so therefore, I assumed this sum of money had been deducted from my bank account. Several weeks later, I received a PCN with time and photos of the car in question coming and going, stating no payment had been received. Thinking myself clever, I hoiked out said receipt, scanned it and then saw (as my scanner enlarged the small ticket/ receipt to A4) the word 'void' at the top in tiny print, obscured by other text. I would have thought the amount would say 0.00 but it didn't so I just didn't notice the payment hadn't gone through. I have appealed and the appeal was declined informing me to either pay or appeal to POPLA. So, the long and short of it is a) I didn't find this forum until after I appealed. b) I never did pay for my parking c) I feel this was no fault of my own but a misleading ticket/ receipt and possibly a faulty machine not connecting card to bank. Can anyone advise me where I stand?

    If you look at the top of this Motoring section you will see a parking ticket forum. This belongs there.
    This space for hire.

    Thanks. I haven't used a forum before so wasn't sure. I can't find the delete or move icon

    Board guides on Motoring are:
    Just send a PM (Private Message) to one of those kind people and they will move your thread.
    At the top of the thread (just after it says "Welcome" Humdrum70), you will see a link marked Private Message (PMs), click on that and one of the options is to send new message.
