    The keeper received one of these parking charges through the post for apparently overstaying in their local tesco car park for over 4 hours. Thing is, the driver never did. The driver must have been there around 2.30pm and returned at 7pm. So they've clearly missed the drivers car exiting and returning in between. The keeper can't get through to the !!!!! over the phone. The keeper has been down and spoken to the manager of the car park and he says he can't do anything. So the keeper will probably have to go through the appeal process. The keeper knows the advice used to be ignore these notices but belives things have changed recently? Anyone know?

    Ha. They've either done as you said. Or it's a massive contradiction if they're just going off my two visits which I proved with my club card statement.

    If it was issued correctly and they've let me off as a gesture of good will. Then there's only proof or I've only submitted proof that i've visited that store the once, you know when I supposedly overstayed for 4 plus hours.

    They can't go off my club card statement to assume I visit the store often if there also saying g I overstayed and only visited the once.

    Also they can't go off the keepers address to assume I live very close to the store, as the actual keeper of the vehicle is not myself and the fine was posted to the keeper who lives about 9 miles away.

    Where would you suggest I go with this. I could try replying to my MP. But she seems to think she's done her job making sure I don't have to pay the PCN, when in fact I'd already had it upheld prior to even contacting her.

    If they show they have stored lots of data, then make a formal ICO complaint!

    Will do that. Iv'e also just visited the car park on two separate occasions, 20 mins apart. Seeing as it's such a nice company and all.

    I hope the signs don't say something like "no return visit within two hours" - or something like that.
