|I am not proud of it, but I have won ten parking fines in just over 5 years, as there are many loopholes. |
For one - signs are not what they are supposed to be and all ten wins have been won on technicalities.
Important to remember - to win them is a very long and laborious work. Financially, in a sense, it is cheaper to pay for the fine.
A quick look on the Internet and I have found this:
'These "fines" are not official fines, but instead a matter of private law between two parties.
'When you park in a car park you are entering into a contract with the company which provides that parking space (road = Local Councils)
'If you breach a contract then under contract law that company is only allowed to make a claim for the amount they have actually lost.
'Because these spaces are free to park in, I would argue the amount is actually nothing.
'People take cases like this to the county court fairly regularly, and judges will often rule that the fines are unenforceable and the charge will be overturned.
Other expert saying: If you get an unfair ticket in a private car park, don't automatically pay it. These supposed 'fines' handed out are merely invoices, often unenforceable.
If you have a receipt from Sainsbury's indicating the time to be close to the parking fine [two hours or five hours what they case might be] - I wouldn't pay for it. -
