That makes sense, however, does this mean we continue to ignore the 'tickets' or do we respond stating we are the keeper/driver and we will not be paying. Which element of this new law is actually legal - paying or responding or neither?! The BPA statements and media succinctly imply that we have a legal obligation to reply as the keeper..... very, very confused. I received huge numbers of tickets last year as I have to park in a space on a (questionably) private road in order to protect access in and out of my own driveway; thus I was ticketed/photographed every day by neighbours. I ignored all of them and they stopped - but now? It appears that court summons will be used frequently as they can actually point to the keeper for the payment of ticket and I never received a court summons last year - just debt collectors letters and obviously the company themselves - FLASHPARK.


The new Act states the keeper is 'invited' to provide driver details.

I doubt court claims will increase. In reality the keeper isn't the driver in the minority of cases. All it means is that if a PPC attempts court, the risk of them being ambushed having have sued the wrong person is removed.

Ans we have our old freind Trevor Whitehouse chiming in:-

Trevor Whitehouse of National Clamps, whose clients include Oxford University, said: ‘We charge £80 to unclamp a vehicle, which is a lot less than some operators. But from next week we’ll be putting our penalty tickets up to £100 "


Nice of him to acknowledge on the record that it's a penalty.

Now there's a lovey example of a well thought out payment for a quantifiable financial loss to the landowner ????
