A spokesman for Dundee University said: “We always look to balance the needs of the university community with our responsibility to promote sustainable transport and have no plans to create more parking spaces at this time.

“Our lift share scheme which encourages employees to share car journeys, is the leading such initiative within Scottish higher education.

“We have bike and electric van and car pools for staff use while Dundee was last year named as being the most sustainable cycle-friendly campus by Cycling Scotland.

A full-time traffic warden and campus security officers issue penalty notices when cars are parked either incorrectly or without a permit.

All revenue from...fines contributes to the campus services budget, which helps fund initiatives such as low-energy vehicles, bicycle shelters and lockers, and future investment in smart parking.”


Penalty notices?

Fines? Which raise "revenue" (as opposed to covering contractual losses)?

I just thought it interesting that a spokesperson for a PPC (the university is a PPC in its own right - http://www.britishparking.co.uk/BPA-Approved-Operators) was quite loose with their language, given that the use of the words "penalty" and "fine" are breaches of the BPA Code of Practice.

Misrepresentation of authority - bet none of their tickets/paperwork mention such words.


--------------------
RK=Registered Keeper, OP=Original Poster (You!), CoFP=Conditional Offer of Fixed Penalty, NtK=Notice to Keeper, NtD=Notice to Driver
PoFA=Protection of Freedoms Act, SAC=Safety Awareness Course, NIP=Notice of Intended Prosecution, ADR=Alternative Dispute Resolution
PPC=Private Parking Company, LBCCC=Letter Before County Court Claim, PII=Personally Identifiable Information

Private Parking - remember, they just want your money and will say almost anything to get it.

Yes, though how much is down to deliberate misrepresentation and how much is down to journalistic licence is anyone’s guess.
