Last week I parked in the City of London. The post giving details of location etc also had a tariff list for diesel, petrol and hybrid cars. I paid for the parking and realised I had been over charged as I currently have a hybrid. Last car was diesel. So I emailed the borough and complained. Two days later I had an email back confirming I was over charged and a refund issued. Having spoken to a few friends who also have private plates, I realised that although the DVLA have their details updated when you move them from one vehicle to another, Ringo and other pay by phone services don’t. So if you have private plates and park in locations where you are charged depending on engine emissions, make sure you double check the amount you’re charged. You will need to email the council if the charge is wrong, not the company managing the parking.
