    Rental Car in Scotland - Parking Eye

    Rental Car in Scotland - Parking Eye 10th Feb 18 at 4:35 PM
    I've recently received my first ever PCN - from Parking Eye, and would be grateful for any helpful advice, please.

    I reside in Scotland and the PCN states it was for parking over the time limit in a supermarket car park in Scotland.

    However, here's where it gets complicated for me.
    I had a short term contract (8 weeks) with a company.
    The company asked me to collect a car from a car rental firm.

    My name (and address) is on the rental agreement as the keeper.
    The company's name and address is also on the rental agreement as they were paying for the rental via their account with the car rental firm, meaning I didn't have to show the car rental firm my credit card - just my driving licence.

    Other drivers (agency and the company's own technicians) used the vehicle during the (8 week) period I was employed with them.

    I wouldn't have a clue who the driver was who used the car on the day it parked in that supermarket.
    As my contract is now expired and I no longer work there, I can't imagine that the company would breach data protection laws and let me know the name (or names) of the potential 'villains'!!

    To try and 'nip this in the bud', should I just write to Parking Eye and tell them that I was the keeper but not the driver, and I don't know who the driver(s) is as I'm no longer employed there?

    Thanks in advance.
