Hi all,

First post... go easy on me.

Driver received a PCN from Euro Car Parks today. Driver was unaware that parking charges apply due to poor signage (none on entrace, green sign posted on a green railing by exit only. See pics below.

Additionally, the parking attendant who issued the ticket lifted the cover up off of the bike to read the number plate and damaged the fastening clips in the process.

Driver has never had a ticket before so would appreciate any advice! At the moment they are of a mind to appeal to Euro Car Parks based on poor signage then go to POPLA if necessary. Advice on appeal wording would be great.

Thanks!

Entrace to car park area (Charterhouse Square):



Driver's motorcycle (no signage displayed in clear view):



As far as Driver can see this is the only signage in the whole area and is at the exit:

Was this a ticket on the windscreen?

It was left lying in the dash area of the motorcycle.

Just noticed that the BPA Code of Practice (Euro Car Parks is an approved operator) states in section 18.3:

You must place signs containing the specific parking
terms throughout the site, so that drivers are given the
chance to read them at the time of parking or leaving
their vehicle.

This is clearly not the case. Something to include in the appeal I imagine?

Fifrst appeal to ECP - just use the one from MSE FORUM, the "newbies" thread (its a sticky thread, about 3 or 4 down from the top of page one, says NEWBIES in it) - read post 1, understand post 1, and BLUE appeal from there.

ECP will reject, you know they will reject so you read up on the next stage - POPLA appeal.

My blow by blow thrashing of ECP:

Have a good read and UNDERSTAND! As this was a Notice to Driver, there is an argument that says appeal as RK at day 25/26 in the hope that they fail to apply for details from DVLA thus breaching Pofa sc 4 p8.

Thanks. I will read all of the above and then write up an appeal and share it with you guys before I send it off.

Appeal sent off 7 Feb (used template from MSE forum with no alterations). Rejection letter received by email today. No Notice to Keeper received at all and far more than 56 days have passed. The only communications so far have been the initial PCN and this rejection letter. I believe this contravenes PoFA schedule 4 paragraph 8 (5).

Can this be safely ignored now given that it would fail at court or does it need a POPLA appeal?

It needs a POPLA appeal to kill it off. Easy one to win!
