    Parking Fine issued on Christmas Eve

    Parking Fine issued on Christmas Eve 6th Jan 18 at 12:00 PM
    My daughter and I parked in a car park which is partly for shoppers of a certain well known bargain store - the rest of the car park is for non-store visitors but was full. We purchased a ticket for 3 hours as we knew we would be going elsewhere. We didn't retain the receipt from the shop (paid cash) but we do have the car park ticket. However, we have received a CONTRACTUAL PARKING CHARGE NOTICE to the registered keeper which shows the vehicle entering and leaving the car park. There is no photographic evidence to say we were parked in the store car park.

    I have looked on the newbies thread and got a letter ready to send but wondered if I need to add to it?

    My issues are:
    1. No photographic evidence that we parked in the places allocated to store visitors
    2. It was Christmas Eve which was a Sunday. As I haven't been provided with photographic evidence of the signs, I don't even know if the rules apply on a Sunday.

    Any advice would be greatly received. Should I amend the template?

    Firstly edit your post. Make no reference to who was driving. Refer to the DRIVER only.

    "The driver parked in a car park..."

    Just what are they "invoicing" you for?
    I'd rather be an Optimist and be proved wrong than a Pessimist and be proved right.

    Yes - by all means add to the template - but avoid 'I parked' (I wouldn't even write 'we parked')! I always use words like: 'no evidence that the vehicle was parked in that bay..'

    But, a CONTRACTUAL PARKING CHARGE NOTICE sounds like G24 to me, and the only way to cancel their utter dross excuses for 'charges' is to complain to the Store manager(s) or Retail Park. These are cancelled all the time.
    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.
