    £70 Parking Notification Charge - What Do You Do?

    A vehicle registered in your name is parked in a supermarket car park and exceeds the apparent free parking time limit. If there are notices displayed, you don't notice or read them.

    Parking management is enforced by a private company who use ANPR to record vehicle number plates entering and leaving the supermarket grounds. The private company obtain the registered vehicle keepers details from the DVLA.

    You receive a Parking Notification Charge for £70 if paid within 7 days otherwise it goes up to £90 requiring settlement within 28 days else debt collectors will be instructed.

    Anybody experienced this?

    I watched a programme about debt collectors the other week.
    In this it showed the collector will more than likely have some documentation that allows him to take something to the same value of the fine.
    If he does not receive payment or access to your house, he will then call the police and they will come and escort him in/through the house while he removes an item of value.

    Payment!!!! You decide 'This is like someone SPEEDING and getting a fine'

    Umnn...Interesting one that...I am under the impression that no other parties/companies can use the ANPR apart from the

    My wife works in the court system, and I have asked her this question for her to ask a police officer and or traffic department. I am hoping for an answer today. As soon as she lets me know, I'll let you know.

    When was this?, and when did you get the notification through the post?

    Obvious question, would be, was you in that shop all the time, and if so, was you over the time limit??

    If you were in the shop all that time, then you maybe able to approach the manager of that branch and explain your predicament. He may or may not be able to help, but it can't hurt you asking....

    Speak soon.

    I would take another look at the parking area signs.

    It may be possable to argue they are not clear, large enough or well placed if you didn't see them.

    Other than that I would think you would be stuffed.

    Good luck ... Mel

    Yeah I saw this on watchdog, they more or less said, dont pay. It would cost them too much to take you to court and risk loosing anyway. I wouldnt pay.

    If you did the crime then man up and take the consequences. If not, then fight the buggers tooth and nail

    Definitely don't ignore it... check out those links posted above for advice and if you think the ticket has been issued in error also complain to the shop...

    A few years ago I had one from a private company doing the same thing at a LIDL of all places... I'd only been there for 5 minutes to get some milk (but then went in there the following morning for something else... the company seemed to think I had stayed there all night.

    How much do you reckon the scrap value of a supermarket trolley is?

    If I get £1 a trolley I just need to make 70 tokens that release them from their chains
