A: No-one or no computer software can guarantee success. A parking company might refuse an appeal just in the hope that you pay up. We have designed this tool however based on the strongest legal grounds available. Should the matter ever reach court, we would expect a judge to look upon a parking company grimly if they insisted on pursuing a parking charge in one of the circumstances we have listed. We cannot guarantee this however.

A: Yes, it has been written to include members of both the British Parking Association (BPA) as well as the International Parking Community (IPC). The grounds are based on the law of England, Wales (and Scotland where applicable) and therefore apply to every parking company and every entity.

A: If you are set on not paying the ticket, it is still worth appealing informally, which you can do by writing or emailing to them. The parking operator will certainly reject your appeal, and POPLA/ the IAS would not hear your appeal either, but at least it puts you in the best position when the matter ends up in small claims court. It also helps if you intend to make a counterclaim.

A: This is up to you. Some people (out of sheer principle) do not want to financially support companies that have given out tickets where the driver does not deserve it. Other people just want the hassle gone and do not want it to end up in court. It is almost always worth appealing the ticket and seeing where that goes.

If all appeals have failed, the question of ‘should I just pay and end it’ can then be re-considered.

There is something to be said for learning how the small claims court system works (it is not as bad as you think) and learning to stick up for yourself against those who seek to intimidate you, but this is a separate topic and question of philosophy altogether.

A: No, review our terms and conditions here.

A: No, this tool has not been written by a law firm; this is a tool to help you prepare your own appeal. It would be unusual for a law firm to get involved with such a small value dispute, because they would charge £100-300 in fees, making the process unviable.
