Hi all,

I'm looking for some advice regarding a parking ticket received whilst on holiday in Cornwall. The company in question is Premier Parking Solutions.

The driver was Parked in an underground car park at a premier inn. Parking was paid for, but the driver was Parked outside the bay. It was an end bay so no car space next to me. The driver wasn't in the road, nor causing an obstruct to anyone. The spaces where tight and I have a wide car. I chose the bay thinking I would be fine, so here I am now.

The registered keeper received a £100 ticket which ignored. They have sent two letters now, one with additional £30 administration fee.

What should the driver do next? It's seems on some forums people believe that they can only take you to court for the loss of the car space. So if it's £5 per bay, the driver offers them the loss of the car space. Is this true? The driver wasn't taking up another bay, so how would the driver make a fair offer?

A lot of people ignore the letters and they go away. Looking at other post, it's a lottery and maybe this would be another one that gets taken to court. By ignoring there letters, should this case go to court, it won't look good to the judge that the driver never try ed to sort this matter out sooner right?

Any advice would be much appreciated.

If there are many negative Trip Advisor reviews, then it sounds like they are lying to you about it not being their responsibility, but on the other hand, they don't give a stuff. In that case, probably best to drop this line of enquiry and focus on fighting the ticket/PPC.

Don't forget to add a review of your own, the more the merrier.

Im not saying what you want to do as regards paying.
Im saynig - do you have the spirit to fight this, knowing yu do risk a possible court claim, that if you win will still have taken time?

If yes, then good! We need that
But you have to be realistic with yoruself

Just remember that if you do pay them, it allows them to keep on harassing people - and they might not be in a position to pay.

I presume the car park is underneath Premier Inn?

PI have a massive sign on their wall directing you to the car park.

Write to PI HO:

Dear sirs,

As a guest at your above hotel between xx/xx/xxx and xx/xx/xxx, a vehicle I was travelling in received a parking ticket from your agent for parking outside a bay. The vehicle was not causing an obstruction and the driver and I object strongly to this treatment as customers, which is unacceptable.

Please ensure this is cancelled forthwith and confirm by return.

Love and kisses.

Among others, I have already done this. Your first post still identifies the driver. You have not posted any of the documents or signage. Maybe you're not up to this?

True, it looks better to make a response as a dispute. You would be politely replying by letter, pointing out that:

Parking was paid for, and because the car is wide the driver chose an end bay - so no car space next to the car, and no other cars could have been obstructed in any way. The spaces were tight and you could ask for the measurements of the bays there and state they are insufficient for modern cars, and also that the £100 charge was not visible at the PDT machine so it was certainly not 'agreed' and the Beavis case is distinguished. Should they feel they have a cause of action, you look forward to the usual BW Legal robo-claim.

Thank you. This is the PI I stayed at. Where do I stand if they denie responsibility? They have already told me by phone the car park has nothing to do with them.

You've phoned the local PI, but quoted advice telling you to do neither of those things.

I'll send the letter. Just to clarify, it was head office I spoke with, not the local PI I visited!

As previously mentioned, when I pealed the ticked away from the car window the paper was black. You could see it shouid be white, but it wasn't. It was like an old till resipt that had changed colour overtime. It was thrown in the bin as it wasn't of any use. Can I request an other copy?

You still need to edit. Who does "me" in your first post refer to?

I had asked you for the NtK (Notice to Keeper) and the signage (the alleged contract), not the NtD (Notice to Driver).
