Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Do you accept you exceeded the 1 hour time limit?
You can appeal the decision if there was no signage. If that appeal fails and they are a member of a parking regulator (such as British Parking Association) you can complain to them.
But the tickets are valid, there was a recent court case about this, so if you dont pay they will come after you and fees will go up.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
Not now the case of ParkingEye Limited (Respondent) v Beavis (Appellant) changed all this.
Does that clarify? Alex
Yes, you are seeking to appeal. I said that above you should appeal the ticket and then take it to their professional body.
It needs to be signed as per their regulator rules. If it is and you didnt see it, you are stuck - because everyone could just say they didnt see it.
If you appeal and that appeal is unsuccessful then yes, because of the Parking Eye decision they will pursue you.
But you should appeal to the fullest extent you can.
But as the owner you are liable under the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012
Does that clarify?Alex
I would, you have nothing to lose at all. Sadly the Parking Eye decision has changed everything.
If I could invite you to rate my answer before you go today please, otherwise the site does not credit me for the time spent with you today. Thanks and good luck. Alex
Yes that is fine. I would not say you didn't see the signage though, just say it was inadequate for it to be reasonably brought to your attention.
Does that clarify?
