Ask a Traffic Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello. I am Ed, a Solicitor qualified in England & Wales with over a decade’s experience in the legal profession advising clients.
I specialise in Commercial Contracts, Business Transactions, Employment, Dispute Resolution, Personal Injury and Road Traffic Law and shall be reviewing your legal problem today.
Regarding the site’s automatic offer of a Premium Service Phone Call, I shall be delighted to talk with you by phone to discuss your issue in greater detail if you accept the offer.
However, if you do not want a phone call, please cancel the offer for a Premium Service Phone Call and you will not be charged extra.
You can either pay the lower amount before the deadline or appeal the PCN as unfair and draconian. There is plenty of good advice online about how to get out of parking fines, such as unclear signs and bay markings.
If you keep on appealing through the company’s enforcement process and then to the Traffic Penalty Tribunal (https://www.trafficpenaltytribunal.gov.uk/) and ask for an in-person hearing, the company may well drop the PCN as it is not worth them going to the time and expense of attending the appeal.
These parking enforcement companies’ entire business model is based on most people paying up at the first time of asking as it is a small claim and not worth defending. However, this is a double-edged sword as the PCN will not be worth the parking company pursuing.
This tactic has served me well as I have not paid a parking fine for about 15 years!
I hope this resolves your enquiry. Please revert to me if you require any clarification of my answer to your question and I shall be delighted to assist.
Yes, I agree. Good luck with it!
