    Advice - Train Station Ticket

    Advice - Train Station Ticket 9th May 18 at 11:47 AM
    Hi, i wanted to ask for a little advice on i guess both a moral and technical basis.

    I received a ticket this week at Burgess Hill train station (indigo) as i just forgot to pay for parking. The machine in normally use was broken so i was going to do it on the App, but when i got on the train i forgot.

    So question is, should i appeal this or as it was actually my fault should i just pay up. If i do appeal, i assume i still follow the template process on here? (I used it before to defend a ticket at another site).

    thanks.

    if you search for posts "railway bylaws" , you will see that an appeal is almost pointless , as you will not get a POPLa code

    search and all will be reveled

    Why pay? This is a scam if you read up on it. Indigo have no power to make up this charge whatsoever.

    Read the thread that tells Newbies to read it first. It is at the top of this forum then put Indigo in the search box and see what has been said about this outrage.

    Thanks, I have read the posts, as a newbie there is a lot of info to take in and lots of differing situations that may imply different outcomes.

    I guess i just wanted a level or reassurance around fighting this one, and i believe you have provided that.

    thanks

    These are ALL THE SAME and no-one here pays. Easy as hell to wait 6 months.

    just received the NtK and will appeal now, the newbie thread suggests to use the online appeal, i assume this is still the correct way so as to avoid postal appeals being 'lost'?

    Hi, i have searched somewhat for this exact query, but can anyone advise whether it is best to completely ignore letters from ZZPS or will it help to delay things towards the 6 months point by engaging in mail ping pong? I actually have two PCNs now running in parallel, I would rather just ignore them but concerned that things may come to a head before the 6 months point if i dont engage with some time wasting? one was in early may and one in early June so i am waiting till Oct and Nov. Thanks

    we normally recommend engaging in the ping pong , slowly

    but you can possibly IGNORE them as ZZPS are powerless anyway

    there is no one size fits all answer , apart from getting past the 6 month deadline for a penalty notice and MAGS court from a TOC

    we never see a TOC try this , but there are no guarantees

    use the search box and INDIGO STATION or similar to see plenty of advice on bylaws issues
    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

    If you communicate do so only with Indigo. We recommend communication simply because most people seem to lose their nerve sitting on their hands.

    So far we have not heard of any cases going to court. It could be that it doesn't happen (which is highly likely) or that people don't report it. We have had people that have communicated reporting a time out.

    Personally I would say ignoring is a viable way forward but if you are more risk averse or hate doing nothing then enter into communication.

    i dont mind sitting on my hands with it, tbh i would rather not bother contacting them as i have enough other things to get on with, I just wondered if there was any view on if things went slower by sending them the letters or not. I can send them something in the meantime i guess, like the one the chap here was sending, https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5875297

    Ping pong with the PPC by post of you wish, but it is your money you will be wasting on postage.

    Otherwise, do it by email, asking one or two questions every fortnight or so. If they don't answer your specific query, ask the same question(s) again.

    Do please ask, and complain to the BPA and DVLA, why you have not been given access to ADR as is your right under the Alternative Dispute Resolution Act 2015.

    Please complain to your MP about this unregulated scam, including the question about not being allowed access to ADR.
