    Parking Awareness Services - Scotland - Advice Please 10th May 18 at 8:22 PM
    Hello,

    I have moved into a new flat in Scotland and recently received multiple letters from Parking Awareness Services as I wasn't a "pre-authorised vehicle"

    Link to car parking space - google.co.uk/maps/@55.8503823,-4.2331452,3a,75y,142.31h,74.6t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sQVO4BsWyaHZL7vZYGH3CQA!2e0!7i1 3312!8i6656

    In fact, I have just realized that two were on the same day!
    I'm looking for advice as to what I should do next, should I ignore these letters?

    Thank you

    Hi. Welcome to the forums.

    All the guidance you need is in post #1 of the NEWBIES FAQ sticky thread.
    There is a specific section in there about incidents in Scotland.

    Do not give away the driver's identity.

    Advice is contained in the NEWBIES FAQ sticky, post #1, including specific advice for tickets in Scotland.
    We cannot provide you with a silver bullet to get you out of this. You have to be in for the long run, and need to involve yourself in research and work for you to get rid of this. It is not simple. We will help, but can't do it for you.

    Opinions on what?


    You came for advice - and have been pointed to where you get it




    Everyone is politely asked to read up the newbies faq thread (which answers your specific questions!) and only start a new thread If more advice required!


    You can see how busy this forum is!

    my opinion (should you want it) , is to read the newbies thread , where there is a section that explains the difference between scotland and england and suggests what to do
    Time pretending I was asleep whilst under his desk , has given me insight to this sordid world

    I think you should pay double what they are asking. Actually make that three times.

    There you go a different opinion.

    Apologises I should have mentioned I have read the newbie thread, the advice in Scotland was to ignore it. Given that I've been sent around 5, should I act any differently?

    I hope you are gearing up to complain to the Managing Agents to gets these cancelled. A new resident (presumably while you awaited a permit that you now have?) should not be subjected to this harassment.

    DO NOT NOT NOT IMPLY OR SAY WHO WAS DRIVING. NOT ''I PARKED''.
    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.
