    ES Parking Enforcment Ltd Ticket face down charge notice

    ES Parking Enforcment Ltd Ticket face down charge notice 15th Sep 17 at 2:41 PM
    The driver use a car park where you have to input your car reg to get a ticket which you then display in your window.

    I've recently received a charge notice because the a valid pay and display ticket was not displayed..
    EDIT Photo's shown when I was trying to appeal the decision show a number of tickets on my dashboard, most the right way up with one flipped, which isn't the ticket in question. Looks like the ticket for the day had been dislodged from the dashboard at some point.

    The letter states that the reason for issue is: Ticket face down -Did not pay and display a pre paid voucher or place it on view.

    The driver has still got the pay and display ticket which shows they'd paid the valid fee for the time the charge notice relates to. I've never had a parking charge notice before and I'm not sure what to do next. Am I liable for this charge? Is there any point appealing?

    ES Parking are members of BPA according to their letter.

    For my similar case the Judge wanted witness statements exchanging 3 months before the hearing not sure if the same with yours.

    Wise words from claxtome to check what it actually says. If you don't - read my signature.
    Idiots please note: If you intend NOT to read the information on the Notice of Allocation and hand a simple win to the knuckle dragging ex-clampers, then don't waste people's time with questions on a claim you'll not defend.

    I've got a few weeks and will be making a start on it at the weekend but in the mean time I've written to the judge to request they stay the claim as per Loadsofchildren's suggestion in January.
    I'm not expecting anything to come of it but I thought it was worth a try.

    Points 1 & 2 relate to the court date and the date the statements are required by.

    OK that's the important thing for you to be ready, beforehand, not leaving it late because of wondering if they've paid the hearing fee and procrastinating, like some posters do.

    Preparation is key, so start reading some good WS/evidence examples from the NEWBIES thread and on any live court claim thread ahead of yours.
    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.

    My case is very similar to Claxtome's and relates to the same care park so I'm going to be having a good read through his thread this weekend as well as going back through post #2 to make sure I know what I need to do.
