    Help! Smart Parking fine in a company car, Scotland 6th Aug 18 at 10:40 PM
    Hello lovely kind people, I would really appreciate some advice on this charge. I overstayed by 20mins in a Smart Parking car park in Perth, which is my fault but equally I am very unwilling to pay the extortionate 100/60 for the privilege. I've ignored a fine in Scotland before, but unfortunately it was a company car so possibly I have to behave differently this time? I've only just received the letter today and have 14days to decide, please help! I'm worried about my poor boss receiving demands for up to 6 years - or worse a court summons.

    Just appeal to Smart as the (day to day) keeper of the car using the template appeal in the NEWBIES FAQ sticky, post #1. That should hook them away from the vehicle lease company (or your employers), then beyond that, as you're in Scotland, ignore them and any of their agents completely.

    There will be no court summons - summonses are for criminal cases.

    Drop MSP Pete Wishart a complaint and ask him to deal with Smart on your behalf - he hates them with a passion!

    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.
