    Default APCOA - Manchester Victoria Train Station PCN

    Back Story

    My girlfriend was parked today at the train station - as she does every weekday for the last few months. As the car park is extremely busy it is often impossible to find a space, and she has taken a cue from others (and herself also a handful of times in the past) that it was okay to park on the side in a none marked car parking bay.

    She was not obstructing anyone or access to anything, this was simply a place that wasn't marked out for parking, it is between a few regular spots (obviously taken) and a permit holders only section (but not part of this section).

    She paid for her parking in full before leaving and returned considerably before required, she consistently uses this car park and the revenue they gain from the ticket would probably be considerably less than they would have made from her in the next month.

    I suppose the point that left us a bit surprised was the fact they wanted to ticket her despite her actually making more revenue for the parking site as it was full but she still found somewhere suitable to park.

    Next Steps

    I have advised her that she should not pay it, but she is worried about the fee going up and having to pay more for waiting.

    I am of the understanding that she should wait until a letter is delivered to her and then appeal it following the usual steps (initial appeal declined, POPLA number after), is this appropriate in this case where she was parked wrongly (although to no detriment of anyone else). She is also NOT the registered keeper of the vehicle, but it is a personal car, not a company or hire vehicle.

    Thank you for your time!
    James.

    As a BPA member, it should be fairly straightforward to win at popla for a railway byelaw case.

    I'm with you, wait for the NTK and appeal.

    Get some signage photos when she's there though.

    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.

    M1,

    Thank you for the support, it's very reassuring to hear that I'm on the right lines as I've only done limited research today which lead me here.

    I will ask her to take some pictures of signs so that we can have as much information as possible.

    Thanks again to yourself and everyone else who makes this forum so helpful.

    James.
