    EUro car parking fine retail park 9th Mar 18 at 9:22 PM
    Hello guys today I got a fine I The lo st first or overstaying in a car park, I stayed for 2 hours and I went over due by like 5-10 minutes so the sign said if stayed longer than expected pay for additional hours before leaving so I did I popped another pound in and it took my mind only an s didn’t give me another receipt I didn’t think nothing of it jumped in my car and left “you type once you’re reg” so coming home you see I received a fine I was shocked and raged. Before I send my appeal and stuff need some tips on how to word it I’ve been here before and the ticket machines on the car park are always breaking it’s actually taken money off me and haven’t but have me a ticket around 4 times total now but this time I got a ticket? When signing up to complain and Appeal it’s asking for personal details like mundane name and stuff should i fill it out correctly? The websites “eurocarparks”

    Of course you must put in your name and address as registered keeper (DO NOT CHOOSE DRIVER).

    The issue is with the forum which dislikes a type of punctuation format - don't use a phone.

    You will have seen that throughout here you are advised never to reveal who was driving

    You need to edit your posts to remove details of who was driving

    The ppcs monitor this forum and can use your posts against you

    Your version tells them who was driving!

    Have you read up on this in the Newbies FAQ thread?

    The Idea behind the initial appeal is to get a popla code

    You now need to follow the advice in #11. Edit your op and your latest one!

    This is a bill you are disputing. No question of getting into trouble!

    No, it doesn't get it cancelled at this early stage, it's a stepping stone to POPLA.
