    UK CPS Parking Charge

    UK CPS Parking Charge 8th Aug 18 at 4:10 PM
    Hi

    My sister has recently received a parking charge in the post, 100 or 60 within 14 days. The car park she parked in is near our town centre and used to park in for up to 90 minutes when popping into town. She has parked there several times, as have I. The ticket is for walking off site and leaving the car parked there.

    Does anyone have any advice, I have a feeling this company does not have the authority to enforce this charge and a lot of people are saying to ignore on historic posts.

    Thank you for any help

    Ignore historic posts!!


    Everyone is politely asked to read up on this in the newbies faq thread near the top of the forum before posting


    You will see not to ignore this, but how to deal with it


    Throughout you are advised never to reveal who was driving


    You need to edit your post to remove details of who was driving


    The ppcs monitor this forum and can use posts in your thread against you

    They would struggle to convince a judge that leaving site was a breach of contract. Indeed, some MPs have ventured the opinion in the House of Commons that such a condition in a contract breached one's human rights, watch the debate below.

    This is an entirely unregulated industry which is scamming the public with inflated claims for minor breaches of contracts for alleged parking offences, aided and abetted by a handful of low-rent solicitors.

    Parking Eye, CPM, Smart, and another company have already been named and shamed, as has Gladstones Solicitors, and BW Legal, (these two law firms take hundreds of these cases to court each year). They lose most of them, and have been reported to the regulatory authority by an M.P. for unprofessional conduct

    Hospital car parks and residential complex tickets have been especially mentioned.

    The problem has become so rampant that MPs have agreed to enact a Bill to regulate these scammers. Watch the video of the Second Reading in the House of Commons recently

    http://parliamentlive.tv/event/index/2f0384f2-eba5-4fff-ab07-cf24b6a22918?in=12:49:41 recently.

    and complain in the most robust terms to your MP. With a fair wind they will be out of business by Christmas. bre
