    PCN ticket

    PCN ticket 8th Mar 18 at 7:51 PM
    Hi. I'm new to the site so any advise would be appreciated.
    I received a PCN whilst in a health centre car park delivering to the pharmacy which is inside the health centre because i was not in a parking bay. There are no loading bays in the car park or yellow lines, just parking bays which are to narrow for me to unload my van safely. I got PCN back in December 2017 and appealed it straight the way, which I now no was the wrong thing to do. The appeal came back and said I still need to pay the fine. I have a couple of days left to pay it or they say they will take matters further.
    Should I pay or wait to see if I get taken to court.
    Thanks for any advise.

    NO-ONE PAYS THESE.

    You haven't said which PPC?

    You haven't said what happened when you complained to the Health Centre Manager? As you would!

    You don't appear to have read 'NEWBIES PLEASE READ THESE FAQS FIRST'.
    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.

    which parking company was it ?

    was it a windscreen ticket ?

    did they send a Notice To Keeper within 56 days of the incident ?

    how long was the van parked for ?

    and read that NEWBIES FAQ sticky thread you missed at the top of this forum too

    also complain to the Health Centre and tell them to get the pcn cancelled

    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

    yes they are the Parking Company

    but as it is a health centre I do not believe the parking company are the landowner, they rarely are , especially not when its a health centre

    This is an entirely unregulated industry which is scamming the public with inflated claims for minor breaches of contracts for alleged parking offences.

    Parking Eye, Smart and a smaller company have already been named and shamed, as has Gladstones Solicitors, and BW Legal, (these two law firms take hundreds of these cases to court each year). They nearly always lose) and have been reported to the regulatory authority by an M.P.

    The problem has become so rampant that MPs have agreed to enact a Bill to regulate these scammers. Watch the video of the Second Reading in the HofC recently.

    http://parliamentlive.tv/event/index/2f0384f2-eba5-4fff-ab07-cf24b6a22918?in=12:49:41

    and complain in the most robust terms to your MP. With a fair wind most of these companies may well be put out of business by Christmas.
