Car parking fine (Not Council)

We got this one yesterday (No intention of paying it) I am sure this is a speculative one, as it says our car was in this car park for 4 hours 02 minutes now this particular car park is about 30 mins from our house it's a small retail park, you could spend time in all of the shops for maybe an hour, but Liz uses it to visit a friend who lives over that way during Covid and they park next to each other and have a Costa coffee, they may stay an hour or so but certainly not for 4 hours.

The letter wording is a bit odd and cannot IMHO be enforced.

"When your vehicle entered the car park the driver agreed to the terms and conditions displayed on our signs, which show how long you can stay for if you overstay if you overstay of £100"

Letter appears to come from Group Nexus, you can pay at www.parkingchargepayment.com and they appear to be an approved operator of the British parking association.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life“s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

Bear (not a pun) that the law has changed: if you ignore it they will probably take you to court.

There are help-groups out there: I think I found one through moneysupermarket.com.
No: moneysaving expert.

https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/re...rking-tickets/

"There are some militant private parking campaigners out there who argue you simply shouldn't pay the ticket or have any contact with the company that issued it.
To be clear, we don't suggest you take this approach, particularly because if you've been ticketed by a company which is a member of an accredited trade body, it can apply to the DVLA for your details. But we're including this approach here anyway because you may hear some advocate it."


Please consider their advice - Gordon

I disagree, they cannot tie you to an agreement simply by driving into a car park.

As Gordon says Kev, gone are the days where you could just throw a private invoice for parking charges in the bin. I would follow his link if I were you. If Liz only stayed an hour is it free for that hour and if not did she pay for a ticket for the full time she was actually there? Four hours is a massive discrepancy if she did so it does sound like it might be a cock up but I woudnt just leave it and hope it will go away. if they have cocked up then it should be easy enough to get reversed.

There was a similar thing going on in our nearest town. A particular shop owned a piece of land that, to all intents and purposes, looked like part of the free public car park. It had been used as such for many years. They put up the tiniest of notices saying that parking was for shop users only. All others parking there would be fined. There was a massive outcry as some people had only stopped to read the notice and got a fine for doing so! They were right, and the car park stands deserted while we all refuse to enter the shop (M&Co).

What we don't understand is how the times show it was there for four hours in the first place.


Unfortunately, she has an iPhone, if I had been with her my Google timeline would have verified it one way or the other, but having said that £15/25 per hour is hardly fair even if it was there for four hours.

Surely Liz must know how long she was parked there for Kev or at least roughly but you haven't explained the rules or the situation. Was it Pay and display, an hour or two hours free and then a fine if exceeded? If its the latter and you are sure you never exceeded the free limit then dispute it otherwise your probably stuffed although I think if you read that link there are some that have had success in disputing the amount payable, especially if its free in the first place.

More info needed really.
