    While opening my Birthday cards this morning........updated:-D

    I get a parking fine!!

    I'm really annoyed.....I went to Tesco on bank holiday Monday to find not a single carparkin space so I parked on a double yellow! Wrong I know, but I have 2 small children and live half an hour away so didn;t wanna turn round and come back later! Anyways, I get a ticket saying details will follow in post. I went in and complained and the GM agreed they should have been leanient being bank holiday. So I filled out an appeal form which he also made comments on. This morning (my brithday, may I add lol) I get a £70 fine:(
    Not a very nice gift hey?? :cry:

    Well I presume they are working on behalf of the council or if it's a private road then the land owner (if it was a purpose built road for the supermarket then probably Tesco)

    LOL H.....they are a private company, I bet you got an offical looking letter as well?....I got one of these in December last year when I parked in a disabled space in a retail car park at Argos.

    Have a read here H...]http//ww…tml

    I basically ignored them, and I have heard nothing from them in almost 6 months. They are not legally enforceable tickets. The ticket represents a civil request for monies by a company that you have no contract with and therefore not legally obligated to pay.

    They may even show a picture of your car committing the "offence".....its all an effort to make it look as official as possible. Ignore it.

    So pleased you got away with it.

    I hope you also get away with ever NEEDING to use a disabled car space

    If its private property...tesco or not...then its not legally enforceable under the Traffic Management Act 2004, and therefore there is a civil matter between the said private company and the individual they are "ticketing". The private company UKPC would have to pursue H in a civil court, prob small claims court in which they would incur costs in bringing the case against her and also have to provide clear evidence that the money was "owed" to them. As the company do not own the land then they will have a very difficult task of doing so...and it would take up a considerable amount of time and effort for it.

    These companies rely on being paid by people who believe them to be official, thats where they make their money. :thumbsup:

    So you went in to Tesco and they said they should have been more lenient yet they employ them to put tickets on your car!
    Well fighting things is a hard battle so maybe go see the tesco boss and see if as a gesture of good will he'll give you £70 worth of Tesco vouchers so you wont be out of pocket and retaining them a good customer. Worth a shot.:thumbsup:

    Cheers, but i treat everyone equally. I'm all for equality, even with disabled folks :thumbsup:

Well first H was there and she did park on the double yellow lines and they are employed on behalf of the land owner (Tesco) to enforce it. So apart from trying to p*ss them off I'm not sure there is much point?

    Thats what they rely on, and all I'd say to them is good luck in court. UKPC have a contract with Tesco, not Hannah. They are issuing a "ticket" saying that H now owes them money...for what exactly? If its not under the Traffic Management Act then its a civil matter....and UKPC must prove that Hannah had a legally binding contract in order to successfully get that money from her. I dont believe Hannah signed anything when she parked there, the fact that it was a double yellow line means nothing unless it was put there by the council and is a public road, neither of which is the case.

    Edit : and trust when I say that Tesco will in no way pursue a customer in this manner. In fact they will take nothing negatively to do with it at all. They will leave it to UKPC to deal with as that is what they pay them for.

    I think you missed the point a little unless you are stating that Tesco have used the double yellow lines without registering them with the highways agency and council which I be amazed if true. If it is indeed a true private road then it must have signs clearly stating so. It is most likely a privately paid for road which has public access (not hard to find out) thus road traffic regulations are executable by whoever is governed to do so, be it the a private company, the council or the police.

    They dont need to register them. Its private property, thats the difference. More than welcome to seek legal advice which I would always advise if in doubt. I'm not in any doubt as I;ve already been through it. :thumbsup:

    I'm not intending to start a row.

    Just want to ask why you would feel proud of parking in a disabled space.

    What, yes they do. So your defense is the yellow lines are not legal thus not enforceable! So as there were no parking signs the ticket is not enforceable!
    Well on your method as none of it is enforceable then Asda(or whoever) would be better off just parking a truck in the middle of the road to stop loads of business and it would only cost them a few pounds!
    It will be a privately owned public highway. If hannah had parked across the middle of the road then the police would have been called and a private company would have towed her car.

    Ps If your in Scotland which you maybe it maybe different but I'm not sure.

    it was double yellows:p:p:p:p

    if it is an 'unadopted' road which means it is not a road for the public in the councils eyes - also classified as a 'private' road belonging to someone else then so long as they put up notices they can 'fine' you for parking on it they do not need yellow lines just proof that they have informed you of illegal parking - if it is the same sort of road with yellow lines and no signage about fines etc - then you can park there and they cannot do anything about it

    They also say a little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing.

    Your right though, Tesco won't chase it, but If the company who 'controls' the carparking at that tesco are contracted to pursue and maintain then they could pursue the claim in a civil manner.

    PS I think anyone who parks in a disabled space is selfish (Mod Edit) and deserves a fine, if I see anyone parking in one who looks pefectly able and doesn't display a badge... I quite clearly walk past them and say "Must be a mental disability then!"
