        As i am 100% sure i displayed my ticket the only thing they can say is a taxi is a commercial or a minivan but the word minivan is not on the sign it just says vans. Thats why i need to be sure taxi is not a commercial car some people say if its used for business or for making profit then its classed as commercial. And if Xtra Parking is dissolved do UKCPS have wright to issue PCN's.

          Whether "car" or "van" here's another definition from HMRC (https://www.gov.uk/hmrc-internal-man...anual/eim23110)

          Section 115(1) Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003 (ITEPA). This works by exception: every mechanically propelled road vehicle is a “car” unless it is
          • (i) a goods vehicle (a vehicle of a construction primarily suited for the conveyance of goods or burden of any description),
          • (ii) a motor cycle (as defined in Section 185 Road Traffic Act 1988),
          • (iii) an invalid carriage (also as defined in that Act), or
          • (iv) a vehicle of a type not commonly used as a private vehicle and unsuitable to be so used.

          If the draughter uses terms which are ambiguous, that is their problem.
          they needed to define on the sign what they meant by a "van" and by "commercial vehicle"
          eg EC Council Directive 68/297, substituted by EC Council Directive 85/347 defines "commercial motor vehicle" as any motorised road vehicle, that by its type of construction and equipment is designed for, and capable of transporting, whether for payment or not: (1) more than nine persons, including the driver; (2) goods and "standard fuel tanks".
