Parking ticket going to court.

Recommended Posts

besiktas1903

I received a parking ticket outside my house a few months ago because my permit fell off my window. recieved the ticket from P4PARKING.

Basically I'm receiving letter from them threatening to take me to court.

which i dont mind, it would give me a fair chance to argue my case i have appealed through their website and never heard back only to recieve another threatening letter. called them up was told they never recieved my appeal was told to write an email to appeals@p4parking.co.uk wont be surprised if they fail to 'receive' this appeal aswell.

What i want to know is if we were to go to court and god forbid i was to lose my case would i be liable to pay anything other than my parking ticket?

Are P4PARKING a private company?

Stick "fluttering ticket" into google, it should pull up some relevant cases.

Yeah private company I've had a look online getting ready for a rejection from p4p for my appeal then preparing for a POPLA appeal which fingers crossed should be successful.

Yeah I've read up on the fluttering tickets cheers mate

Surely these companies shouldnt be out to make profit? They should regulate the parking ensuring that only residents and visitors with permits should park on MY ESTATE therefore me producing my valid permit should be enough for them to drop the case money hungry b@$t!ds

They won't actually do it, it costs them more to take you to court than the fine is worth.

You need to be prepared do some reading around and act based on that. Commonsense and fairness are nothing to do with the matter, law and process are what matters.

Here's some links to get you going:

Just ignore them completely, they will not take you to court. If they did and lost it would cost them dearly and would also put their whole industry into disrepute. They stand to loose more if they were to loose, this is why it will never go to court.
I have successfully ignored 4 parking tickets ( from NCP etc.) and eventually the threatening letter soon stop and to this day have never had action taken against me.
Its also worth telling them if they continue to send their bullying letters you will report them for harassment.
And always remember...

They are not a fine, they are an invoice and do not have to be paid.
