    Advise on appeal wording for bad signing 12th Apr 18 at 5:04 PM
    Hi,

    The driver for this vehicle overstayed the signed stay time, kind of. The signage that contained the more specific terms on the car park stated a time.

    However a more prominent sign, evidence available, stated a different time through graffiti. At a normal viewing distance it would appear that the stay is indeed a different number causing confusion. Surely it is up to the agency to keep these signs in perfect condition as to not cause these types of issues.

    How would you mention this within the appeal?

    This is a BPA agency.

    Wanna smash this at POPLA.


    How is my section on grafitti?

    Get rid of the paragraph:

    ''BPA Code of Practice (36.1a)...inappropriately''

    ...which has no place in the point made about ICO and it actually annoyed me that someone ruined it by putting that bit in, and people like you are copying it.

    That bit talks about something that all NTKs do have on them (complaining to the ICO) sending POPLA off in a wrong direction and possibly ruining the appeal point. So get rid of that little bit.

    Done and done.


    That section is removed.


    I think I just need a final proof read and hopefully it'll be good to go!


    To be fair I'm feeling fairly confident just on their lack of fine displaying in obvious text.



    Because the their signs are a bit.. yeah

    Okay last bit of changes for formatting and fixing all of the above corrections you guys have pointed out.

    Will be sending this off tonight, anything else that needs changing? made more specific to my case? or any other points worth throwing in?

    Looks good to go; just a typo of ANPR in the final appeal point.

    Hey guys, last post for a while till the rebuttal.



    When sending to POPLA I'm going under the option of


    I was not parked incorrectly -> Other


    And only other correct?


    Then I do not state the motorist? Correct?



    Should I only upload the appeal?


    Or should I also upload my original rejection? The figures I'm using in their own upload?


    Thanks so much!

    Why would you want to say "I was not parked correctly"?
    Doesn't sound like a good idea to me.

    Use 'other', as it says in the NEWBIES thread.

    No need to send your original appeal or it's rejection letter. Leave the PPC to fight their own battle.

    Yes but if you follow the link on newbies thread the guy says click on that and THEN other.


    Just wanted to clarify, as I saw it mentioned in a few other threads too.

    Also it was "I was not parked INcorrectly"


    As in was parked correctly.



    Basically... Is it


    I was not parked incorrectly > other


    Or just


    Other

    I'm a lady, and I do NOT say to click on 'I was not parked incorrectly'!

    When we say click on OTHER, we mean click on the option called OTHER.

    Obviously you don't click on something using the words ''I'' and ''parked'' in the same sentence!
