If you ever been sent a supposed parking ‘fine’ at one of those shopping car parks where you can park for 90 minute for free so long as you collect a ticket from the machine but forget to get the ticket this video is worth a watch. I’ve had a couple of these supposed ‘fines’ and a friend who is solicitor said just ignore them, ditto C.A.B. I’ve had also sorts of threats of county court action, balifs coming round, debt collecting agencies and increasing charges but have yet to find anyone who has been taken to court bar this example
Sadly around 40% of people who get these ‘fines’ (BTW they are not fines in law they are invoices for goods you didn’t order) usually pay up because they are scared they’ll loose their credit rating which is complete clap trap according to Solicitors. Word has it on the consumer forums that many small claims court judges loath these sort of actions especially as it’s private land and just trespass which is very open to interpretation.
Anyway, have a look the video…
