    goodnight MIL 15th Apr 18 at 9:36 PM
    at last the DVLA has clarified the situation , its only taken them 3 or more yrs

    let the good times roll http://parking-prankster.blogspot.co.uk/2018/04/dvla-clarify-that-parking-companies.html I suspect that at least 80% of there cases are where the motorist did not hand over details to the PPC


    happy days but not in Truro
    Time pretending I was asleep whilst under his desk , has given me insight to this sordid world

    yes if they still exist , however in most cases they have changed ownership and new names , for example in this case http://forums.pepipoo.com/index.php?showtopic=108819 the DVLA do not get it , they intend to write to and audit Northwest Parking Enforcement. When it was Northwest Parking Management that sold the alleged debt

    In the days of wheel clamping it was often advised to go for the principal - ie the one who hired or allowed the clampit in to operate on their land in the first place.

    Shouldnt anyone looking at taking action as a result of the MIL debacle shouldn't the landowner also be included / joined to any case?

    MIL have always been easy to beat in any court claim defence (I only know of one lost, presumably badly argued and it wasn't a poster on here or on pepipoo, so none have been lost on the forums, AFAIK).

    So now all those people can sue the parking firm who sold the data. They already could, but the DVLA statement gives the evidence people need. For a DPA breach like this, 500 seems about right, according to the CEL and Parking Awareness cases we know about already.
    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.
