    Pcn/ntk 11th Oct 17 at 8:58 PM

    Apologies again as trying to read previous threads to understand what to next if anyone has some sound advice.

    I've just been notified of a parking fine from and have issued 100 charge. I had been picking up a disabled relative with a small child in the car from an airport and held up at passport control so circled around numerous times passing the pick up point.
    Drove further onto a deserted pub car park late at night and didn't notice any signs to pay and display so waited in a safe place with lights on and engine running.
    I've now had a PCN/NTK letter from the leasing company to advise my 21 minute stay is worthy of a 100 fine. Logged into their site and displays 60 instead of 100 but when proceeding with an appeal gives me "Unfortunately you are unable to appeal this charge at this time."

    Anyone give me advice on the company as seems a legit letter and wouldn't want the fine increasing

    Thanks for any advice

    tell the leasing company to name the hirer to the PPC as detailed in the BVRLA guidance from a few years ago. that way they remove themselves from POFA2012 liability

    also tell them this is neither a "fine" nor a "penalty" , its a Parking Charge Notice, a PCN, commonly known as an INVOICE

    when you get a PCN in your own name and address , you can then appeal it as HIRER/LESSEE/KEEPER according to the IPC advice in the NEWBIES sticky thread faq

    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
