    Pcn driver notice

    Pcn driver notice 6th Oct 17 at 11:20 AM

    I'm looking for some guidance please. First of all, I have already emailed NCP asking for details of how long I parked so have inadvertently told them I was the driver. Unfortunately I did that before coming on here !!!128533;.

    Basically, my car was hit by another driver and went in to the garage for repair. They gave me a courtesy car to use whilst mine was being fixed.

    I parked the courtesy car in an ncp car park (I didn't realise it was anpr monitored) and paid for 3 hours parking. I was logged going in the car park at 10:20 and left at 13:41. The parking charge notice was sent to the garage who filled it in with my personal details and forwarded it back to NCP, they also sent a copy to me. This was on 8th September.

    I was planning to appeal the notice but I have been waiting for a letter from NCP directly before doing so, I have never received anything. Unfortunately I did email NCP asking what times I paid for from and to. They only responded yesterday stating that I entered the car park 7 minutes before I bought the ticket and left the car park 14 minutes after the ticket expired. I had injured my shoulder in the accident and had two children, shopping and a pram to get in the car, and make my way to the exit, I don't think 14 minutes is excessive for that.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated please !!!128522;

    Wait for the NTK unless the windscreen PCN is less than 28 days ago.

    See the newbies thread, you should be appealing as KEEPER on day 26, online.
    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.

    Whilst you are waiting I suggest you read up on grace periods under BPA Code of Practice (NCP are BPA members) which maybe a key argument in your case.

    Thanks for replying. The notice to keeper went to the garage, who kindly forwarded my personal details to ncp. I've been waiting for a notice to driver, as it was an anpr that picked it up. Am I wrong that I should get corrrespondence directly from ncp? Thanks again
