    Euro Car parks PCN 13th Oct 18 at 1:36 PM
    I have been trying to read/search the forums for information, and I know you guys must be sick to death of these kinds of posts, but I'm really confused over what to do.



    A driver in my household has been sent a PCN from Euro car parks saying they overstayed by half an hour-ish. They may have overstayed by a little while, but doubt very much it was for half an hour.

    They were in the car park of a restaurant, at which they were meeting a friend for drinks. Friend paid, so driver has no proof of being in the restaurant. Driver also thinks they have thrown the parking display ticket out ):



    Should driver just pay 45 to shut them up? We have emailed head office of the restaurant chain and waiting for a reply. Manager of restaurant said the car park was nothing to do with them and he couldn't help.

    Time for you to read post #1 of the NEWBIES FAQ sticky thread.

    In there you will find an already written blue text appeal.

    Send that appeal without change - no additions or alterations necessary.

    Send it as the keeper.

    and edit your post to remove any hint of who was driving


    the DRIVER parked on the day etc


    the KEEPER has received the postal paperwork


    so no "MY , ME , MYSELF & I"
    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
