DRIVER FIGHTS £170 FINE AFTER FAILING TO PAY 20p PARKING TICKET – 19/11/2016

An interesting case arose in Glasgow this week whereby a driver couldn’t find a working meter to pay 20p for 30 mins parking, so he simply left a note on his windscreen.  You can read it here

This has now gone to a third party debt collection firm and may result in being heard at a Civil Court. The final costs will be substantial if this goes against the driver.

The lesson to be learnt here is to keep copies of all correspondence, send everything by recorded delivery and collate as much evidence as you can to support your case (which the driver hasn’t done).
