    Hi I have received 2 fines
    One ticket on windscreen on 4/3/18
    And one parking charge notice sent to my house from 2/3/18 which I received today 9/3/18

    Both are saying it!!!8217;s £100 per day fine but discounted to £60 each if paid within 14 days

    car park used for residents and businesses
    What can I do to appeal or should I just pay the fines,

    Only worried as Car wasparked there for a few days there now and hope no more tickets come

    Thanks for any help

    Does the windscreen ticket relate to the postal NTK?

    If they really do refer to two separate incidents then you need to appeal twice.

    Use the template twice - once with each PCN number.

    Carlos,

    I have experienced the exact same issue except I am a bit further down the line in terms of the debt collectors writing to me and calling up.

    My initial mistake was not to appeal early on so make sure that you do using the newbie section as CM mentioned for further details of what to say. They are likely to refuse your appeal at which point you can take it forward from there to independent appeal.

    There are a lot of great people in this forum who can help you with any stage of your process but look at the newbie thread first

    Ollie

    And same company sent letter about parking there but for another day

    I will appeal twice now.. but once I send them a copy of the template will they drop the fines straight away or will they escalate it to debt collectors
    And what should I do if I get more fines in the post

    Please stop using the word 'fine'.

    Have a read of ollie-ollie's thread.

    Don't use "recorded delivery" (now "signed for")

    Get a foc cert of posting from the post office

    Read up in the Newbies FAQ thread on how this will progress

    (The appeal won't end it - you won't get any debt collectors at your door !!)

    Also is there no way to email my appeal, just want this gone. Fell like letter sending takes too long
    And on the uk cpm it says if I appeal and its unsecsessfull I will have to pay full parking charge 100£ for each one.
    Or is this just a scare tactic as it feels that way

    Read up in the Newbies FAQ on the futility of sppeals to IPC companies and why you should not take it forward to their " independent" appeals system

    You don't have to pay at all! Unless eventually ordered to by a judge!

    Appeals to IPC companies are futile. As already advised you need to get up to speed on the game you are now caught up in by going through the Newbies FAQ thread

    Throughout here you are advised never to reveal who was driving

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

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

    I hope you are clear now, to post 1st class at a local PO counter and get a free 'certificate of posting', and NOT to use recorded or special delivery that requires a signature.

    Doesn't take a genius to guess why not...
