Excel/VCS lose in Court (+ Tribunal)

Recommended Posts

we already know.

 

I didnt.

 

... and the judge has threatened Excel with contempt of court unless they come up with a good explanation of why they brought a meritless case in the first place!

 

 

Before District Judge Mcllwaine sitting at Scunthorpe county court, Scunthorpe Court Centre, Laneham Street, Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire, DN15 6JY.

 

Upon hearing the authorised officer of the Claimant company and the Defendant in person

And upon the Claimant having issued proceedings in their own name

 

And upon it being conceded that contrary to the British Parking Association Code of Practice contrary to same, the Claimant has no contractual authority to issue enforcement proceedings before the County Court either in the Claimants name as in this matter or the name of the land owner

 

IT IS ORDERED THAT

 

1) The claim is struck out.

2) The order of District Judge Stephenson dated 3rd March 2012 is rescinded and the Claimant shall pay to the Defendant the s um of £42.50 w ithin 21 days of today.

 

3) The managing director for the Claimant named as Mr Simon Renshaw Smith is ordered to file at Court by 4.00pm on 29th June 2012, a statement containing an explanation as to the manifest discrepancy namely the bringing of an action in contract and the tort of trespass in the companies name with no lawful contractual assignment of authority to do so.

 

4) A copy of this order shall be served on the British Parking Association for information.

Dated 16 May 2012

Do you people just stick your cars anywhere and never try to find out if there are some form of parking restrictions in place?

 

If there are restrictions in place, you deserve all the hassle you get. To avoid all the pain of receiving letters, park in a multi storey.

This is the second time Excel have lost in court recently. Everybody knows their worthless parking "Invoices" arnt worth the paper they are written on ,and now the courts have confirmed that. The sooner legislation is brought in to outlaw private parking companies the better. These firms are just chancers trying to demand money with menaces. Luckily most people see these people for what they are ,and just ignore any "Invoives" they get from them ,but its the small minority of motorists that may panic into paying up when the threatening letters drop on the door mat that concerns me ,and they are the ones companies like Excel thrive on . These private parking firms must be outlawed once and for all.

Penistone you are dead right.

 

It is very interesting to compare this issue to the crooks at TV Licensing. Almost exactly the same issues. Driven by salesmen who are pretending to be "enforcement officers" And court threats which are not worth the paper they are written on.

So, let me get this right. Are you complaining about receiving a ticket for parking somewhere you should not?

 

I have an issue with your comments. Mainly because I live in an area where everyone one and their dog seems to think that they can park their car in a private parking space to go to town to shop or work or attend Uni etc. How do you propose we as residents deal with these inconsiderate drivers who want o park for nothing?

You should have a license to watch BBC TV, if you don't have one then you should buy one, just like if you wish to watch Sky, you buy into it. These companies ned cash to run, if they don't get the revenue then the cease to exist.

 

Too many people seem to want something for nothing in this world.

The more interesting question, to me, is why would anyone be interested in this topic? People who park only where they're allowed to park never have any dealings with Excel or any other parking companies.

 

People who park where they're not allowed to park ... well, explain to me again why they should be allowed to do so? Because surely "not allowed to park" is a self-explanatory phrase?
