Ok.

Have you told them who was driving ?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No i havn't told them anything yet... plus i have got the ticket that was placed on the dashboard of my car dated 27 Dec 2013 expired .


 

Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 years ago.
Well, it was probably issued by camera anyway so it would have come through the post.

Generally speaking, registered keepers are liable for fines. However, this is a private land fine. Under the new law all you have to do is tell the company within 28 days of the issue of the fine who the driver was and who they should pursue to avoid liability - unless, of course, you were the driver.

They have been known to deny receiving that information though so send it recorded delivery and keep a copy.

They will probably still pursue you but they have no case if you take those steps.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.

Can you please send me the full Address of Parking eye, as i dont have it on me at the moment, its 200 miles away from..


 


Thanks

Obviously I will not have their address. I do not have any connection to them.

Usually the address is on the parking ticket although it might invite representations to POPLA.
