    Parking ticket with Incorrect details

    Parking ticket with Incorrect details 4th Oct 17 at 10:40 PM
    Hi, I have just received a parking ticket for not having a permit in a permitted area. This is enforced by a private BPA accredited company called UK parking patrol. I just run into my dr's to grab a prescription as there is no allocated parking. The ticket actually has the correct number plate but completely wrong make/model and colour!

    The car is actually a hire car through work and I know any admin they do for tickets/ fines etc I will also be charged for!

    Is there anyway I can contest this on the grounds of irregular info? Any advise would be appreciated.

    Many thanks

    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.

    there is no BPA accredited company with that name AFAIK

    the closest match is an IPC company

    UK Parking Patrol Office Ltd (Trading as UK Parking Patrol Office)


    and its unlikely that a minor discrepancy will stop this as the private parking industry is unregulated , only the VRM matters

    please read post #1 of that NEWBIES FAQ sticky thread, especially near the bottom
    Newbies !!
    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
