    Retail PCN , paid ticket 17th Apr 18 at 7:24 PM
    I have been notified that somewhere in the midlands by smart parking a ticket hasn't been paid against a car i keep (i read the sticky )

    There is a twist the driver paid the 1hr parking charge as they should and displayed it , unfortunately the ticket wasnt kept and was paid by cash as its about 70p.

    Letter to keeper says the vehicle was parked for under an hour .

    Is the template any use to me in its current form .

    Welcome to the forums Badman4wrd.

    Unfortunately you have not yet read enough of the NEWBIES sticky thread.

    You need to remove all clues to the driver's identity.
    there is no place for the word 'I' when describing events on the day.

    Perhaps your second sentence should start something like:
    There is a twist the driver paid the 1hr parking charge...
    Please review and adjust the rest of your post similarly.

    And yes, the template appeal should be sent just as it is. No changes necessary.

    that template is a ONE SIZE FITS ALL

    no need to even ask, its a given that it is used "as is" for ANY private parking charge ticket

    what happened on the day happened to the DRIVER

    what happened since that day happened to the KEEPER

    there is never the need to use "ME , MYSELF & I" in any sentence
    Newbies !!
    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se

    It is extremely unlikely that anything you might add will make any difference.
    Most first appeals get denied anyway.

    Smart will easily be beaten at PoPLA.

    You must appeal. It gets you a PoPLA code where you will win.
