Republic of Ireland Law Questions Answered by Experts
1. You need to realise in this situation, you are at the mercy of the parking company. This is because you didn't actually send the text message when you ought to have, so there was no contract for parking in place when the car was clamped. Essentially, you are liable for your own default in not sending the text message to arrange parking. Now, you will have to seek an indulgence from the parking company to allow you to release the clamp without payment. However, the parking company are not obliged to grant you this indulgence. You must make your case to get this indulgence but the situation is that you didn't arrange parking when you should and as such your car was lawfully clamped. The law does not allow any exception for failing to send a text message when you should.
