Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
Who is the issuer please?
Are you willing to risk being sued?
Not particularly but it is there.
On the face of it, you do not park within their required terms and conditions. Come what may, you didn't obtain a free parking ticket. It might very well have been that you were entitled to it but that is not the same as displaying it.
Then it depends what the signs that the location required you to do. If they were clear that you had to get a free ticket and they were visible then that would cover them.
That is an issue that will turn upon the wording of the signs and their location and adequacy.
Overall though, it's not very cost-effective for them to sue and so it is worth contesting this if you are prepared to run the risk.
Can I clarify anything for you?
No. Case of Beavis. Sum of the loss point is lost.
This will turn upon an issue of their signs if this ever does get to court.
The real advantage with these things is that it is not really cost effective to sue so probably they wont
I would ignore them.
I never use the appeals service. They rarely find in the motorists favour and it just lets them know you take it seriously.
The sum of the fine plus £35 in costs and £55 fixed solicitors costs.
No problem and all the best.
