What would you like to know about this please?
Do they accept that you didn't receive the fine at the time?
Were you the driver?
I am sorry for the delay. I don't know why this dropped off my question list.
This is a difficult issue because it is a private land fine so they have six years to sue because it is basically a breach of contract.
You could argue that they are in breach of their requirement under the freedom of information is act to serve the parking fine notice on you within 28 days. However, it is quite unlikely that that invalidates the entire fine. This is new law so it is not been tested but I suspect that the High Court would find that this amounted to an invalidation of the requirement to name the driver. Therefore, the fine would have the difficulty of running against the driver with no ostensible means of proving the identity of the driver. It would not invalidate the fine altogether.
Can I clarify anything for you?
No problem and all the best.
