David, John is correct - these 'fines' are unenforceable, only traffic wardens and the police can issue by law fines. These private companies dress them up as 'fines' but they are charges and very expensive ones at that.

I have never been at the receiving end of these, fingers crossed.

David I may have explained this before but Im sure you wont mind.What you have is a notice.According to the rat companies who run car parks you have entered a contract with them.That is baloney.Shamefully the DVLA sells vehicle info to these rat firms.Now they have a reg number pertaining to your car but and Im sure the V5 says that the name on the form is the keeper of the vehicle not necessesarily the owner.Only the Police have power to compel the registered keeper to reveal the name of the driver at the time of an alleged offence.You have not committed an offence and are under no such obligation.My advice sit tight do nothing dont even acknowledge them.They wont take you to court because they have no evidence against you.

Thanks for all the info on private company parking charges folks. I'm really glad I mentioned it on here. I got another reminder this morning. The first bill was 40. There was one after that for 120. They now say it's 170. I wonder just how rich they get from this. They'll have to come and get me.

I had red letters from the 'legal' department, then debt collectors, all shared the same address funnily enough, they eventually stop when they click i'm not a numpty who doesn't have a scooby wink.gif

Ohh and i know a car park attendant who was shocked when i told him that the wee tickets he stuck on cars were not fines and were as worthless as the litter blowing about, he actually thought he had the power of the law behind him..errr no!
