so the 1 hour stay at tesco i just noticed they have a new sign about it in lanark so if i stay 2 hours they cant really do anything ?
Well they'll try and send you a "ticket". But its unenforcable. Just ignore, and after 5 or 6 letters they take the hint and fuck off. They need to be able to prove the driver.. who makes the civil contract as they enter and render the services of the car park. And PPC's have no legal standing to demand driver details (ie S172 requests), and so any demands for the drivers details should also be... ignored.
Were they to manage to find out the driver, they would then have to prove the contract was entered into- ie the signage was sufficient, which more often that not, its very insufficient!
Thennn the amounts they claim have to be losses.. ie cannot be punative
Just don't go ripping the arse out it by picking them up every day/week from the same car park... some judges don't like that, as shown by the Mcdonalds Finneston case where the guy picked up 27 invoices from the ANPR ParkingEye scheme in place there... he didn't argue well in court, the judge refused to understand the PPC model, and he had to pay a whopping amount to the shysters.
And btw ignore ignore ignore, and theres a one in a million chance they would even consider trying it on in court... and pretty much nae chance of them winning provided you put forward simple arguments.
