I do not want to pay an unenforcable fine. I want to pay £13.50 daily parking charge because in all likelyhood I parked in the car park and did not pay. As I said previously I park there 3 times a week so am willing to accept that I parked there once without paying.
I do not want to pay the £164.00 that Roxburghe are demanding only the daily car park charge.
I do apologise, but I cannot see your answer. Do I pay the £13.50 daily parking charge to Target Parking or to Roxbughe?
Until the Roxburghe letter I had no idea that I had not paid for a days parking. If I had receved any form of notice from Target Parking I would have paid it.
Now because I have not receved any Notice fromTarget the overall costs of Roxburghe have added up to a total of £164.00.
How does it work with the law when I have not received the origianl notices from Target?
Thank you. Not having received any preveous fine/Notice I have no idea how much the original demand was for. What would be usual/average costs if they went to court? Their side/my side?
1) I could say I didn't park that day and if my car entered the car park, for which they have not provided any evidence, then it must have been someone else driving.
2) I can pay £164.00 to Roxburghe and it would all go away
3) I could pay either Roxburghe or Target £13.50 and if they took me to court I loose up to the number requested in my 1st paragraph.
I understand that your suggestion is to go for 1)?
I have not told Roxburghe who was driving. What form of words do you suggest I use to refuse to provide driver details?
So What about the following words.
Thank you for your letter .....
"I have not received any any Notice to Registered Keeper from your client (Target Parking Limited). Furthmore I refuse to provide you with details of the driver of this vehicle.
Please be aware that I have paid Target Parking the sum of £13.50 for parking the vehicle on 22nd May 2012.
Yes I am struggling. That's why I am here.
When you say "just write back refusing details of the driver", do you mean stay silent on who the driver of the car is? Rather than making a written stement refusing to provide such details?
I have already spoken to Roxburghe and said I would send them a letter, so unfortunaley I have already done something.
I still feel bad for forgetting to pay at a carpark where I park 3 days week and would like to try and rectify my mistake. I guess you suggestion is "get over it" and just ignore Roxburghe and if they ever go to court, pay the costs then.
