Do you have to pay those euro carpark fines?
I agree. Ignore the letters and it goes away.
The one I got, and ignored, was over two years ago now so I’m pretty confident it’s not coming back to bite me.
Incidentally – I ignored it as I felt it was issued uttterley inappropriately not just cause I couldn’t be bothered to pay.Posted 5 years agoircSubscriber
Previously the “fine” for private car parks could only be enforced against the driver. Getting the reg keeper from DVLA did not prove who was drivingwhich made court action difficult if not impossible if a reg keeper didn’t admit to be thre driver in correspondence with the parking co. Since October (not sure if it applies in Scotland) if the reg keeper doesn’t identify a driver then he/she is responsible for paying the “fine”. Therefore easier in theory for a parking company to take court action. It’s still early days though. Whether it will increase the chances of getting court papers remains to be seen.Posted 5 years agodeadlydarcyMember
Tbh, if your mum is telling the truth 😉 then, given the circumstances, a letter would get you off if it was a council enforcement notice. However, as others have said, if it’s an invoice, then don’t even enter into a dialogue with them. Don’t know if your mum is elderly or not, but if she is, you might have to remind her not to worry if the company issuing the invoice escalates it in a threatening manner. (That’s not meant patronisingly btw. I’m sure you know what I mean.)Posted 5 years agoglobaltiMember
When I got the string of threatening letters I noticed that despite coming from the parking company, another collection company and a “bailiff” they all had the same stupid spidery signature at the bottom. When they started offering me a discount I knew they were getting desperate. Idiots.Posted 5 years ago
