    Poplar appeal refused, please help! 7th Oct 17 at 1:37 PM
    I buy a weekly parking ticket at an APCOA multi storey, I got 2 tickets in one week even though the warde knew I had paid for aweekly., I appealed to them and POPLA who have also given me a negative decision. I sent the following appeal:
    ["With reference to the above tickets, issued on 11/08/2017 and 14/08/2017. My fist ticket had slipped down the dashboard under the windscreen and the second had blown over to the reverse side.
    As you can see from the enclosed photocopy I did pay for my parking, as I normally do on a weekly basis. This has happened once before and I have explained to your parking warden that I always pay for my ticket and display it clearly, I cannot be blamed if whilst I am away the [/I]ticket moves (wind through the vents or movement as cars pass by, I wish I knew). I asked him that if it happened again to please leave a note on my car asking to call in his office to show my ticket rather than issue me a ticket when he obviously knows that I have bought a weekly ticket, he must know this because it says so on the ticket, he also knows my car as it is quite distinctive and I have pointed it out to him.
    I am obviously a regular, paying customer so please show a little good will as I have now provided evidence of my purchased ticket"
    I am at my wits end now, surely it is a fault of theirs by issuing tickets from their machines that are not properly displayable, i.e. no sticky back. Acts of God I cannot help.....

    Everyone is politely asked not to start a new thread until reading about the process in the newbies faq thread near the top of the forum.

    This does cover what next after a popla rejection

    You are now in the debt collectors stage - ignore them and come back if you get a lbcca or court correspondence on advice on how to defend a court case

    (But do delete your inappropriate first post in the popla decisions thread that you were also politely asked to do)

    Follow quentin's advice and read the newbies thread, unfortunately you did not find this site before or you would have realised that appeal was never going to win!

    The good news is APCOA don't do court so you are fairly safe with this one as it stands:
