    Just got one of these for when I parked in a supermarket car park. Am I right in thinking these aren't enforceable?

    I thought the rules had changed so they were now?

    Had one from Excel last year, totally unenforcable. Basically if they were to take you to court, it would be a civil case them vs you. They can only recover costs through the civil court that they have incurred a loss as a result of your actions, and as you parking there hasnt actually cost them anything, they cant enforce it. IIRC only 1 case has ever went to court, and the company lost. They will however send you some official looking letters threatening court action, but it will never get that far.

    You're best off ignoring them completely, as they give up sooner :)

    One way round paying private parking charges was to refuse to name the driver. In a previous discussion here, someone posted that the law changed in October and the registered keeper is liable if they can't name the driver.

    However Noiser's response could be right when it comes to overstaying, especially when no charge applies in the first place.

    What if you have the tickets and they still try it on?

    Common sense would say they made a f**k up. What can they do if you show them proof you've paid?

    You can play it out whichever way entertains you most, I suppose.

    Didn't see or didn't look ?

    I dare say they're there and probably quite clear so saying I didn't look isn't going to hold any water.
  17. That's simply brilliant. I love it when he offers them English lessons to correct the poor grammar in their letters. I'm bookmarking that to see where it ends up.
