  • PCN - Incorrect Registration Advice required

    Hi there,

    Just after some advice with regards a PCN issues by PE.

    A bit of a strange one.

    On the date in question my Mrs had her car in for repair (Car A) as such she had borrowed my car (Car B) to go shopping.

    Inadvertently she entered her full registration (Car A) in to the ticket machine instead of my full registration (Car B)

    Obviously the ANPR has detected my car (Car B) entering and leaving and as such flagged up as no valid ticket purchased.

    I have had the standard PE letter demanding payment, which I have appealed via their limited website. As expected the appeal has been rejected and they have offered a "Gesture of Goodwill" and reduced the over inflated fine to a slightly less inflated fine of 20.

    They state that entering the incorrect registration is a breach of their clear T&Cs and as such the fine stands.

    I now have 14 days to appeal or the fine will be increased to the original amount and I will be sent a POPLA code!

    I have the following evidence.

    1. The ticket purchased for the allotted time on the day in question.
    2. Proof of ownership for both vehicles.
    3. Correspondence from PE sent via letter and Email

    ps. I have previously lost in court to PE for an overstay based on the Beavis case even though the Beavis case was under appeal the judge still claimed it was valid and ruled in PEs favour, ended up costing me 200 so I am a little nervous.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I would contact the shops, retail park etc.

    To be honest, whilst there are defences available none are cast iron and if they offered 20 then even if you won, you'd lose more than 20 in dealing with it. Certainly try to get it cancelled first if you do decide to pay.

    Private messages are off as all help on this site is on board.

    Please note i am now pretty much without access/time to help 5 days a week. Others will hopefully help you.

    I can only help with what you tell me. Post up information (other than names and addresses!).

    I NEVER enter any appeals or court documentation on your behalf. This is your responsibility.

    Upload images to your thread like this .Email kati@legalbeagles.info if you can't upload images/documents. She doesn't own a crystal ball as far as i'm aware so link to your thread or tell her how to find it !

    If you want to tell someone YOU were driving, go to confession.

    I,I,I,I,I,I should be avoided unless you are Jim Diamond.

      Ok thanks for the response, just wanted some advice and it seems that pay the 20 is the sensible however annoying option. I will try the retail park but wont hold my breath as the usual response is nothing to do with us!!

      Kind regards
