Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Did you ever appeal it?
Did you ever appeal to POPLA?
Sadly these ticket are enforceable by law. You should have lodged an appeal with the parking co when the ticket was issued and you can appeal to POPLA who are independent appeals for parking. But sadly you are out of time.
What you can do now is refuse to pay. All they can do is issue proceedings against you as a small claim and it goes before a Judge.They will have to prove a contravention took place. If they cant, their claim will fail. If they can then they will win and a Judge can decide how much to pay.
But given you didnt formally appeal, all they can do now is issue proceedings.
I am sorry if this is not necessarily the answer you want, nor the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Litigation is never certain. But I think you have a good case
Yes contravention is alleged offence. Only if its criminal is it an offence. This is a contravention of parking rules..........
Does that clarify?
No expert needed. If you lose then costs are limited to issue fee and hearing fee.
