    Angry 4 parking fines IN ONE WEEK! Parking eye, Smart Parking and MET

    Hi all,

    I have had such an unlucky week. I have never had a PCN in my life right up until 10 days ago where I have somehow managed 4 parking charges!

    It sounds ridiculous, and it is. My first was at Asda in and I was given a PCN by Smart Parking on the 20/7/2015 for overstaying by an hour and 20 minutes. I genuinely did not see any signs in the car park (although i do not doubt there were some) about a maximum amount of time, and I received 2 this week which shows that I really was oblivious. I was a customer at Asda but I also went to the library afterwards on both visits and sadly have no receipt and paid cash. My second was on the 24th where I overstayed by under an hour.

    I have appealed both of these after reading the forums writing that it is an unreasonable amount and I had not seen the signs.

    On the 4th of August I received another parking charge by MET by overstaying by 19 minutes at a car park at night time. There were absolutely no lit signs and I was a customer at Krispy Kreme with receipts to prove it, I have appealed this case and also emailed the store manager to complain.

    Just as my bad luck seemed to at a limit, I received another one from Parking Eye at Morissons for the 29/7/2015. This is all crazy to me but I had overstayed by 37 minutes. Again, I did not see the car park signs and now I am being charged £100.

    I am appealing all of these however I just don't know the odds that all of them will be accepted. This is one of the worst weeks ever, I cannot afford these charges and they are unreasonable since I have been a customer at every venue.

    Can anybody let me know if POPLA would likely dismiss any of these charges after these appeals are inevitably rejected? I am quite worried about the Asda charge where I stayed over an hour because it seems like a long time even though I was unaware.

    There is a good chance you'll pay none. Complaining to stores is good. Appealing is good (hope you didn't reveal the driver but even then it's not fatal).

    Make sure you get advice on any popla appeal.

    Hi, thanks for the reply. I didn't reveal the driver in any of the appeals. I still haven't heard back about any of them, is this normal?

    Some are slow and some are quick. If you have proof of sending (email, proof of posting etc) there is no worries. If you don't chase them via email to make sure it's marked as appealed.

    Hi

    Today in the post I received a letter from MET parking about my appeal which has been rejected. They clearly didn't read it properly as I said the signs were not lit at night, which is the time that I received the parking fine. How on Earth am I meant to see a sign high up at night time?!

    Here's the letter, any chance for help in my POPLA appeal?

    I wish to appeal this parking charge on the following grounds.


    1. The charges are penalties and not a contractual charge, breach of contract or trespass. They are not a genuine pre estimate of loss either.

    2. In order to form a contract the signs need to be clear so that they must be seen by an average person. They were not. There was no breach of contract.

    3. MET parking do not hold sufficient interest in the land to offer a motorist a contract to park. They have no locus standi.

    4. MET parking have failed to adhere to the BPA code of practice.

    5. Unreliable, unsynchronised and non-compliant ANPR system.

    6. Keeper liability.


    1.The charges are penalties.

    The charges are represented as an overstay. The driver on the day did not see any signs. According to the BPA code "If the parking charge that the driver is being asked to pay is for a act of trespass, this charge must be proportionate and commercially justifiable. We would not expect this amount to be more than £100. If the charge is more than this, operators must be able to justify the amount in advance"


    £100 is clearly not proportionate to a stay in a car park in which the vehicle was allowed to park for free. Neither is it commercially justified because it would make no sense to stop people visiting the restaurant and making larger orders which could take longer to prepare and in any event in was only ruled so in Parking Eye v Beavis in a car park where the operator paid £1000 per week, a case which in any event is being appealed to the supreme court. It is also noted that the judge in Beavis did rule it was a penalty although in that particular car park it was commercially justified due to the £1000 per week paid by the operator. The £100 is not a genuine pre estimate of loss and is extravagant and unconscionable. It is a penalty. It is not an attempt to claim liquidated damages which should be a genuine pre estimate of loss. £100 cannot be so as the figures quoted include business costs.

    I require MET parking to submit a full breakdown of how these losses are calculated in this particular car park and for this particular ‘contravention’. MET parking cannot lawfully include their operational day to day running costs (e.g. provision of signs, ANPR and parking enforcement) in any ‘loss’ claimed. Not only are those costs tax deductible, but were no breaches to occur in that car park, the cost of parking 'enforcement ' would still remain the same.

    According to the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contract Regulations, parking charges for breach on private land must not exceed the cost to the landowner during the time the motorist is parked there. As the landowner allows free parking for shoppers and several hundred pounds were spent then there is no loss. The Office of Fair Trading has stated that ''a ‘parking charge’ is not automatically recoverable simply because it is stated to be a parking charge, as it cannot be used to state a loss where none exists.''


    2. Unclear and non-compliant signage, forming no contract with drivers.

    I require signage evidence in the form of a site map and dated photos of the signs at the time of the parking event. I would contend that the signs (wording, position and clarity) fail to properly inform the driver of the terms and any consequences for breach, as in the case of Excel Parking Services Ltd v Martin Cutts, 2011. As such, the signs were not so prominent that they 'must' have been seen by the driver - who would never have agreed to pay £100 in a carpark where they could have paid nothing. It was not a genuine attempt to contract for unlimited parking in return for £100.

    As the PCN had no VAT content to it, it cannot be for a service. It must therefore be a penalty.


    3. Contract with landowner - no locus standi


    MET parking do not own nor have any interest or assignment of title of the land in question. As such, I do not believe that MET parking has the necessary legal capacity to enter into a contract with a driver of a vehicle parking in the car park, or indeed to allege a breach of contract. Accordingly, I require sight of a full copy of the actual contemporaneous, signed and dated site agreement/contract with the landowner (and not just a signed slip of paper saying that it exists). Some parking companies have provided “witness statements” instead of the relevant contract. There is no proof whatsoever that the alleged signatory has ever seen the relevant contract, or, indeed is even an employee of the landowner. Nor would a witness statement show whether there is a payment made from either party within the agreement/contract which would affect any 'loss' calculations. Nor would it show whether the contract includes the necessary authority, required by the BPA CoP, to specifically allow MET to pursue these charges in their own name as creditor in the Courts, and to grant them the standing/assignment of title to make contracts with drivers.


    In POPLA case reference 1771073004, POPLA ruled that a witness statement was 'not valid evidence'. This witness statement concerned evidence which could have been produced but was not. So if the operator produces a witness statement mentioning the contract, but does not produce the actual un-redacted contract document, then POPLA should be consistent and rule any such statement invalid.


    So I require the unredacted contract for all these stated reasons as I contend the Operator's authority is limited to that of a mere parking agent. I believe it is merely a standard business agreement between MET parking and their client, which is true of any such business model. This cannot impact upon, nor create a contract with, any driver, as was found in case no. 3JD00517 ParkingEye v Clarke 19th December 2013 (Transcript linked): http://nebula.wsimg.com/0ce354ec6697...&alloworigin=1


    I refer the Adjudicator to the recent Appeal Court decision in the case of Vehicle Control Services (VCS) v HMRC ( EWCA Civ 186 [2013]): The principal issue in this case was to determine the actual nature of Private Parking Charges.

    It was stated that, "If those charges are consideration for a supply of goods or services, they will be subject to VAT. If, on the other hand, they are damages they will not be."

    The ruling of the Court stated, "I would hold, therefore, that the monies that VCS collected from motorists by enforcement of parking charges were not consideration moving from the landowner in return for the supply of parking services."

    In other words, they are not, as the Operator asserts, a contractual term. If they were a contractual term, the Operator would have to provide a VAT invoice, to provide a means of payment at the point of supply, and to account to HMRC for the VAT element of the charge. The Appellant asserts that these requirements have not been met. It must therefore be concluded that the Operator's charges are in fact damages, or penalties, for which the Operator must demonstrate his actual, or pre-estimated losses, as set out above.



    4. Failure to adhere to the BPA code of practice.

    The signs do not meet the minimum requirements in part 18. They were not clear and intelligible as required.

    The BPA Code of Practice states under appendix B, entrance signage:

    “The sign must be readable from far enough away so that drivers can take in all the essential text without needing to look more than 10 degrees away from the road ahead.”

    For a contract to be formed, one of the many considerations is that there must be adequate signage on entering the car park and throughout the car park. I contend that there is not.

    When with reference to the BCP Code of Practice, it actually states:

    "There must be enough colour contrast between the text and its background, each of which should be a single solid colour. The best way to achieve this is to have black text on a white background, or white text on a black background. Combinations such as blue on yellow are not easy to read and may cause problems for drivers with impaired colour vision"



    5. ANPR ACCURACY

    This Operator is obliged to ensure their ANPR equipment is maintained as described in paragraph 21.3 of the British Parking Association's Approved Operator Scheme Code of Practice. I require the Operator to present records as to the dates and times of when the cameras at this car park were checked, adjusted,calibrated, synchronised with the timer which stamps the photos and generally maintained to ensure the accuracy of the dates and times of any ANPR images.This is important because the entirety of the charge is founded on two images purporting to show my vehicle entering and exiting at specific times. It is vital that this Operator must produce evidence in response to these points and explain to POPLA how their system differs (if at all) from the flawed ANPR system which was wholly responsible for the court loss by the Operator in ParkingEye v Fox-Jones on 8 Nov 2013. That case was dismissed when the judge said the evidence form the Operator was 'fundamentally flawed' as the synchronisation of the camera pictures with the timer had been called into question and the operator could not rebut the point.

    So, in addition to showing their maintenance records, I require the Operator in this case to show evidence to rebut this point: I suggest that in the case of my vehicle being in this car park, a local camera took the image but a remote server added the time stamp. As the two are disconnected by the internet and do not have a common "time synchronisation system", there is no proof that the time stamp added is actually the exact time of the image. The operator appears to use WIFI which introduces a delay through buffering, so "live" is not really "live". Hence without a synchronised time stamp there is no evidence that the image is ever time stamped with an accurate time. Therefore I contend that this ANPR "evidence" from this Operator in this car park is just as unreliable as the ParkingEye system and I put this Operator to strict proof to the contrary.


    6. Keeper liability.

    The protection of freedoms act 2012 schedule 4 allows the opportunity for parking companies liable for the actions of the driver but only if full compliance is achieved. In the case of an ANPR situation compliance with section 9 is required.

    Right to claim unpaid parking charges from keeper of vehicle

    4(1)The creditor has the right to recover any unpaid parking charges from the keeper of the vehicle.
    (2)The right under this paragraph applies only if—
    (a)the conditions specified in paragraphs 5, 6, 11 and 12 (so far as applicable) are met ....

    6(1)The second condition is that the creditor (or a person acting for or on behalf of the creditor)—
    (b)has given a notice to keeper in accordance with paragraph 9.

    9(1)A notice which is to be relied on as a notice to keeper for the purposes of paragraph 6(1)(b) is given in accordance with this paragraph if the following requirements are met.
    (2)The notice must—
    (a)specify the vehicle, the relevant land on which it was parked and the period of parking to which the notice relates;
    (b)inform the keeper that the driver is required to pay parking charges in respect of the specified period of parking and that the parking charges have not been paid in full;
    (c)describe the parking charges due from the driver as at the end of that period, the circumstances in which the requirement to pay them arose (including the means by which the requirement was brought to the attention of drivers) and the other facts that made them payable;
    (d)specify the total amount of those parking charges that are unpaid, as at a time which is—
    (i)specified in the notice; and
    (ii)no later than the end of the day before the day on which the notice is either sent by post or, as the case may be, handed to or left at a current address for service for the keeper (see sub-paragraph (4));
    (e)state that the creditor does not know both the name of the driver and a current address for service for the driver and invite the keeper—
    (i)to pay the unpaid parking charges; or
    (ii)if the keeper was not the driver of the vehicle, to notify the creditor of the name of the driver and a current address for service for the driver and to pass the notice on to the driver;
    (f)warn the keeper that if, after the period of 28 days beginning with the day after that on which the notice is given—
    (i)the amount of the unpaid parking charges specified under paragraph (d) has not been paid in full, and
    (ii)the creditor does not know both the name of the driver and a current address for service for the driver,the creditor will (if all the applicable conditions under this Schedule are met) have the right to recover from the keeper so much of that amount as remains unpaid;
    (g)inform the keeper of any discount offered for prompt payment and the arrangements for the resolution of disputes or complaints that are available;
    (h)identify the creditor and specify how and to whom payment or notification to the creditor may be made;
    (i)specify the date on which the notice is sent (where it is sent by post) or given (in any other case).
    (3)The notice must relate only to a single period of parking specified under sub-paragraph (2)(a) (but this does not prevent the giving of separate notices which each specify different parts of a single period of parking).
    (4)The notice must be given by—
    (a)handing it to the keeper, or leaving it at a current address for service for the keeper, within the relevant period; or
    (b)sending it by post to a current address for service for the keeper so that it is delivered to that address within the relevant period.
    (5)The relevant period for the purposes of sub-paragraph (4) is the period of 14 days beginning with the day after that on which the specified period of parking ended.
    (6)A notice sent by post is to be presumed, unless the contrary is proved, to have been delivered (and so “given” for the purposes of sub-paragraph (4)) on the second working day after the day on which it is posted; and for this purpose “working day” means any day other than a Saturday, Sunday or a public holiday in England and Wales.
    (7)When the notice is given it must be accompanied by any evidence prescribed under paragraph 10.
    (8)In sub-paragraph (2)(g) the reference to arrangements for the resolution of disputes or complaints includes—
    (a)any procedures offered by the creditor for dealing informally with representations by the keeper about the notice or any matter contained in it; and
    (b)any arrangements under which disputes or complaints (however described) may be referred by the keeper to independent adjudication or arbitration.


    The notice to keeper does not specify a period of parking. The notice merely indicates a time of entry in to the car park and an exit time from the car park. The BPA code of practice makes reference to the fact that entry is not parking and dictates a grace period must be allowed partly for this very reason. As the keeper is not the person who was driving the keeper cannot know what the period of parking is and the legislation dictates it must be specified, presumably for that very reason. In Woodchester v Swayne & Co [1998] EWCA Civ 1209 (14 July 1998) it was held that the specified information required to be provided by legislation should indeed be accurate and that the failure made the relevant notice invalid. It was also the deciding factor in Parking Eye v Mrs X Case No: 3JD08399 IN THE ALTRINCHAM COUNTY COURT.
    http://nebula.wsimg.com/c289944f81b4...&alloworigin=1

    Other sections are not totally complied with either. The keeper is not invited to pay. The creditor is not identified.

    Thank you so much m1!

    I am unable to do my POPLA appeal because they have changed over companies and I have to wait, but I have printed this ready to send, thank you so much.

    Today I received a letter from Smart Parking saying they had cancelled my PCN which was great. I do have another one from them so waiting on that to see if it is cancelled too.

    I also got a letter from Parking Eye, basically rejecting my appeal and asking for further information. They didn't provide me with a POPLA code so not sure what to do, please find attached the letter.

    From reading it, they say they will provide a popla code after 28 days if you do not provide the info they are asking for ... personally, I'd wait for that

    So far Smart have cancelled both fines after appealing, and so has Parking Eye, thanks so much m1.

    I have sent the appeal about MET to POPLA by mail as the online system claims it needs to be concise and it's a lot of information.

    Hopefully POPLA changing companies doesn't impact my appeal in terms of them possibly being 'tougher'

    Thanks a lot

    Hi M1,

    I have sent an appeal to POPLA as Met have rejected my appeal, however POPLA said they did not get it by post and I noticed what you have sent it quite lengthy and has all the details,

    However POPLA have asked me to submit my appeal online instead and the website says things like:
    Please write a short summary of this ground of appeal (please use your own words and not a template)

    then the next question asks
    Why do you perceive that the terms and conditions of the car park were not properly signed (for example where they blocked, too small, or not showing)?


    Please explain why you believe you were able to park in the area in which you did.

    Can you provide evidence to show that you parked in an area in which you were free to park?

    and then it asks again for the next criteria that I selected (the amount i am being asked to pay is incorrect)

    Not sure how I should structure this online?

    That explains entering a popla appeal quite well.

    You only get one shot so enter everything at once. You may need to convert to pdf, i'm not sure on that.

    Some of the questions seem like they are leading you to say something to harm your case. Do not answer them unless you have to. Try "see appeal".

    That explains entering a popla appeal quite well.

    You only get one shot so enter everything at once. You may need to convert to pdf, i'm not sure on that.

    Some of the questions seem like they are leading you to say something to harm your case. Do not answer them unless you have to. Try "see appeal".

    Hi M1,

    I got an email today from POPLA saying:

    We have now received the case file from MET Parking Services and this is available for you to review on the portal.

    You have seven days from the date of this correspondence to provide comments on this file. This can be done directly on the portal. Any comments that you make after this time may not be considered as part of the Appeal process

    But, please see the image attached, it says that there was no operator evidence, so not really sure what comments to make.

    Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks

    Hi m1,

    They sent a very long letter as you thought they may, and it addresses every point that I made.

    However, I don't think they seem to understand that they had NO lighting on their signs and I genuinely did not see them. How on earth would I have been able to read those terms and conditions at that height in the dark with such small lighting even if I had?
    The entrance sign is also ridiculous as I am looking at the road as I drive into a car park. Not around the place.

    (there are more Image that will be in next post)

    Should I be worried?

    I would like to respond to the operators evidence as follows :-

    The operator at number 12 references a section regarding "the creditor" from their PCN which is not in fact present, even in their copy sent as evidence.

    The operator makes no claim that the signs were well lit and easily seen in the dark. They were not.

    The witness statement is 2 years old and references a contract from 2010. Thus it contains no real or practical information for 2015.

    Hi M1,

    Thanks for all your help, today POPLA emailed me with:

    The Supreme Court has now issued its decision in relation to Beavis v ParkingEye.
    As previously advised, POPLA placed this appeal on hold until we had considered our position in relation to this.
    We have now considered our position and will allow both sides to provide any further comments or evidence regarding the Supreme Court’s decision for our consideration.
    We asked parking operators for their responses first, so we were able to share them with appellants. The parking operator provided no further evidence for your appeal.
    Please provide your comments or additional within seven days as responses after this point will not be considered.
    If the portal does not allow you to submit your comments then we will accept these via email to:
    info@popla.co.uk.
    Kind Regards,
    POPLA team

    I'm not really sure what to say to this? The appeal we sent is in this thread and not sure how to respond or if I need to add anything?

    Hi M1,

    The original email also says they didn't send anything, and I can't see anything on the POPLA site when I log in either

    Wait until day 6 then, if possible, write in the box " the operator has supplied no evidence at all". If not possible then email the same.

    Thanks a lot M1, do I not need to defend anything I said in the appeal regarding Beavis and Parking Eye incase POPLA decided their stance is not in my favour?
