    ukpc ticket, Success

    ukpc ticket, Success 23rd Jan 18 at 2:39 PM
    Got a ticket on the 20/01/2018 at 21.09 in a retail park.
    Fine of 100, 60 if paid within 2 weeks,
    Reason : Not parked correctly within the markings of the bay or space.
    Evidence: 7 pictures showing the ticket on the windscreen, license plate, car parked not in a bay and picture of parking restrictions sign.
    I've read the newbies post, so to my understanding I need to use the blue template and appeal online around 26 days after I received the pcn So that would be the 15/02/2018? or some threads advise just to ignore all correspondence?


    Any advice and comments on how to fight this are much appreciated.

    It is usually suggested here that it is best to send just one pdf document to PoPLA.

    Can you not create a document with pictures embedded using your favourite word processor?
    Then just save it as a pdf?

    Sure I can do that. I don't see where the signage image is referenced in the template. But I can include it at the end of the document under 'Evidence...Image A (signage of carpark)' ?


    Many thanks

    Oh I see.

    Well, does the UKPC supplied image help your case or not?
    If not, don't bother with the image. You do not have to supply UKPC's evidence for them.
    If it does help your case then obviously you must say how it helps you in you PoPLA appeal text.



    Are you planning to sent the text shown here:

    ...without any change?

    You will at least need to change the occurrences of 'WEB LINK' with a real link or where possible with an embedded image.

    Thanks, I was planning to use the exact template and I had changed the 'WEB LINK' to the correct URLs. But I can embed the images.

    So here's the sign : hxxps://i.imgur.com/YhItInO.png


    I think it does help my case because to my understanding the Max Fine should be big and bold. Which I can't see on the sign.


    many thanks

    Yes, that sign probably does help your case, as apart from the reason you mentioned, it is actually a forbidding sign.

    There is no way that a sign saying "NO UNAUTHORISED PARKING" in the biggest typeface on it can possible be the basis of forming a contract.

    You at least need a paragraph or two in your PoPLA appeal saying that.

    It doesn't matter because with no NTK, they lose as long as the keeper raises that and the driver is never identified or implied.

    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
