    Missed deadline

    Missed deadline 7th Mar 18 at 1:37 PM
    My son incurred a ticket and like all good children didn't bother to say anything, assuming that he could ignore it as it was not from the council (he has incurred plenty of those and paid them).


    This was in November 2017, so I have missed any deadline to appeal.


    I have today received a red letter from DRP on behalf of Parking Ticketing Ltd giving me until the 16th March to pay 149, I assume I have to pay because of my son's stupidity. They have cited a Supreme Court ruling from November 2015 and threatening court action.


    Should I ignore this? Slap my son and pay it? Or slap him anyway and ignore it?


    Thanks

    Debt collection letters are fully covered in post #4 of the NEWBIES thread. Ignore it.
    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.

    Just read the NEWBIES FAQ sticky, post #4 before any slapping.

    PS - I think slapping your child might soon be an offence.

    PPS - Before I would think of slapping my son, I'd remind myself that he's 3 inches taller than me (and I'm over 6 feet tall) and its more than likely he'd slap me.
    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.

    Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; show him how to catch fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.
