Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland with 35 years of experience in private practice and I hope that I can help you with your question today. Let me have a quick look at your question and I will either give you an initial answer or ask you for further information. I aim to respond as quickly as I can but sometimes I may want to take a little time to consider your question so as to give you the best possible answer.
My experience is that if you do not respond to these demands they will eventually cease. It is not viable for these companies to sue for one ticket. They rely on people paying up. If you don’t they will eventually go away whatever they say in their letters.
I hope this helped you today. Please do let me know if I can clarify anything. I am always happy to help. You are always welcome to ask a follow up question if it will help you further.
That case was to do with whether a parking charge was a penalty or not. It deals with the legal position. I am telling you that from a practical point of view most companies will not pursue in the courts for trivial amount of money.
