    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.

    Tom

    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.
    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.

    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'?
