    yes, but as keeper and using the template in the NEWBIES FAQ sticky thread without any unapproved changes

    keep that paid for ticket safe and take pics of it
    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

    Likley reject, you go to POPLA and win
    Or MART get smart and cancel now, as they know they will lose.

    just looking at the pcn and the date o contravention is 11/04/18.
    The date on the letter head 9/05/18
    Arrived by post 12/05/18
    Should it have been received in 14 days?
    Would this help if i have to appeal again?
    Thanks

    That just means that they cannot hold the keeper liable.

    That in turn means that it is very important not to give away the identity of the driver.

    I have no idea why people fixate on the dates. No need, it's non POFA anyway, regardless.

    The keeper will win the appeal by not saying who the driver was - easy!

    I say Smart will give up first time, just with the forum template, unaltered:

    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.
