Private Parking Ticket Megathread (Part 3)

Recommended Posts

I meant one set of plates, in each direction. So there was one camera, which took the car going in, and the same camera took it going out? eg front plates going in, back plates coming out?

I've successfully fooled the system by WALKING up to one with a number plate, and then doing the same an hour later.

 

They still tried to claim their invoice without even checking the pictures - it's an automated claim system throughout.

A photo of a car reversing off would look much the same as one of a car approaching. I've had a couple of these demands and they show the front and rear number plates.

They dont care what the car looks like because they never check...

Walked past on the pavement with a cracked plate to the car shop. Walked back the other way with a new plate...

 

If spotted both and issued a ticket. Since the camera had no planning permission and was capturing images on the highway, the ICO went to... well they did nothing because they are useless. I think they said "naughty boy"

 

The counterclaim at court stopped them from dropping the case though and I cleaned them up for £250.

Ha, well done.

You should walk past every day, they 'should' have also took action to stop their ongoing infringement....
