Hi.. just reading through tweets from the official ParkingEye twitter feed.
This one jumped out immediately at me.
ParkingEye really doesn't give a damn about laws, rules and regulations.
Unbelievable bunch of twisted perverts.

From British Parking Association Code of Practice; version 6, October 2015 :-

ParkingEye Ltd - Misrepresentation of Authority - using terms ("fine") that imply parking enforcement is under statutory authority. Breach of Condition 14.2 of British Parking Association Code of Practice ver.6, Oct 2015

@ParkingEyeLTD your service is disgusting! Have you phone number so I can discuss a dispute?

Replying to @apugsley

Sorry Anthony. If you want to contest your fine you will need to post to the address provided. We don't discuss cases over the phone

One presumes the PCN won't refer to it as a fine.

Barking up a red herring I'm afraid.

That's something that I agree with PE: NEVER on the phone. ALWAYS in writing.

Irrelevant, I'm afraid. Misrepresentation of Authority is not limited to what's on a Parking Charge Notice. Think about it! ParkingEye is forbidden under BPA Code of Practice from misrepresenting its authority on its parking charge notices, on its car-park signage, and in any correspondence with the public.

From the BPA Code of Practice (ver.6 Oct 2015), Condition 14 :-

QUOTE
14. MISREPRESENTATION OF AUTHORITY

"You must not misrepresent to the public that your parking control and enforcement work is carried out under the statutory powers of the police or any other public authority. You will be breaching the Code if you suggest to the public that you are providing parking enforcement under statutory authority.

You must not use terms which imply that parking is being managed, controlled and enforced under statutory authority. This includes using terms such as ‘fine’, ‘penalty’ or ‘penalty charge notice’.


Yet that's exactly what ParkingEye is doing on its twitter feed! Implying that parking is being enforced by it under statutory authority, by using terms such as 'fine' !

Let's see what the British Parking Association says, shall we? BPA complaint just lodged. Highlighting ParkingEye and its flagrant contravention of condition 14 of the BPA Code of Practice - "misrepresentation of authority."

Yeah, let's: but I think I know how it's going to end. They are colloquially called fines everywhere - after all since the Beavis judgment that's what they are; just not under statutory powers.

Yeah, BPA says "nothing to do with us, we're not a regulator"

If this isn't anything to do with this thread:

or another live case, it belongs in the flame pit.

No, they are a penalty.

In the same way that councils and the police cannot issue fines their instruments are all called penalties, so are PPC invoices penalties but NOT fines.
