    Parkwatch ticket not wholly parked in bay - shopping centre 25th Jan 18 at 1:42 PM
    before i start thanks for everyone on this forum helping people like myself didnt realise what a huge problem and scam this is

    someone i know was given a 'fine' by parkwatch on the 16th jan 18 (have not appealed yet)
    do they need to wait untill around day 25 and hope they dont receive a letter (windscreen 'fine' received only as of yet)

    when the day arises do they need to send it to them via post or can i just email them? does it matter?

    Is that 56 days from the original ticket on the car? And then once is past that day I can do my appeal because as you say they have fell into the trap, no NTK sent to me

    56 days from the day after the parking event. But don't miss your POPLA deadline as you wait for 56 days to expire. POPLA takes precedence if the two dates are very close.
    We cannot provide you with a silver bullet to get you out of this. You have to be in for the long run, and need to involve yourself in research and work for you to get rid of this. It is not simple. We will help, but can't do it for you.

    My response didnít register here

    Yes falling into our trap coupon mad!
    I havenít received anything to thatís good news, apart from the email stating my appeal to them (parkwatch) has been declined.

    So I need to appeal to popla 56 days from the day after the event, I will do my best copying the relevant info from the newbie thread. That will be the hard part!

    No, you need to appeal to PoPLA 28 days after being notified that your initial appeal failed.

    Which is why Umkomaas made the point not to overlook your PoPLA appeal deadline whilst waiting for a non-appearing NtK.

    It should all be about right, timing wise, if you played the game by appealing on day 26.

    You are not listening...you asked how long a POPLA code will work. I've done hundreds!

    Day 33 is the limit. Believe me. Don't push it, you should not need to.

    Yes, POPLA say 28 days - irrelevant.

    Dunno, because I can't see if you actually appealed to POPLA.

    OK but now that doesn't matter - what you need to do is compare the NTK to para 8 of the POFA.

    See the NEWBIES thread (link to the Act there) or Google the POFA Schedule 4.

    The sticky thread is there to avoid us having to repeat ourselves & to assist you.
