    Moto Chievley / CP Plus / Hire Car 13th Mar 18 at 1:58 PM
    Hi folks,

    In early February, a family member / friend pulled into the Moto Chievley as they were unwell. They went in, had a coffee and did some work. The left a bit under four hours later...

    It was in a hire car as their normal car was in the shop.

    They received a PCN yesterday. CP Plus apparently contacted the hire agency who passed on my contact details which is how they found me (as the car was hired under my name) so thus they got my address. This does not mean I was the driver.

    From reading the Newbie thread - I think this is a good thing that the hire car sent this on to me (as the car was under my name but others can drive it)?

    I planned on writing Moto Chievely ( to explain the situation.

    I also planned on sending the "Edna Basher" template but cannot find the actual template (it is mentioned a lot in the forum).
    1. Can someone point me to to the actual "Edna Basher" Template / Link?
    2. Or should I use the "generic" letter as it was a hire car and the hire agency sent them to me?
    3. Should I do anything else?

    Again - not saying this was me but the car was under my name...

    Many thanks for any help and advice....All the best!

    Haha, CP Plus knew they couldn't win without the driver's details. Stuffed!

    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.
