Parking charge notice


Standard Member
Hi, Can anyone advise please?
My son has recently passed his driving test, and is an insured user of my wifes car that is registered in my name.

He visited a McDonalds takaway and parked in their car park.

I have recieved a PARKING NOTICE CHARGE from UK Parking Control asking for a £75 cheque to be sent to them beacause he was parked there for more than the specificed 90 mins, he did not realise there were signs in the car park.
They say if not paid within 14 days it will go upto £95.

Anyone with information on this or experienced a similar charge and what we can do would be greatly appriciated.

I believe there's been court cases about this 'bullying' tactic employed by these companies, will have a wee scan about the net and see if I can find anything out about them. If memory serves correctly the things went to court and ended up in favour of the 'parker' due to the extortionate charges. As I say I'll have a look about and post some links hopefully! :)

if its a ppc(private parking company) my best advice is to ignore it !!! i parked for 5 mins to run into a wilkinsons shop and when i got back back,there it was:censored:

the link that has been posted is an excellent place to get info on these rip-off merchants.

i followed there advice on there and guess what?? i've heard nothing from them since:clap::clap:
