Wirral grandmother's outrage at parking fine

Wirral grandmother's outrage at parking fine

Wirral grandmother's outrage at parking fine

First published in Letters

FOLLOWING-ON from a letter published last week regarding the new £2 charge for dropping off / picking up passengers at Liverpool Airport, I have just received a Parking Charge Notice for £100 reduced to £60 if paid within two weeks.

All I did was drop off my grandson on the 'pink' double lines approaching the airport, my car was stationary for less than 20 seconds.

There is a white van parked at the last roundabout before the airport and this is fitted with a camera, so no-one escapes. I had no idea what these lines or van represented at the time and I did not notice any signs.

Apparently this is nothing to do with the police or the council, but a charge levied by the company who own the land.

Since the introduction of the £2 charge to go into the car park, I believe more people will do what I did so the landowners have found an even more lucrative way of taking money off the easy-target motorist.

Sue Harding, Bidston.

This is a Parking Charge Notice rather than a fine - the landowner has no basis in law to actually "fine" you. It's merely a request for you to send them money and is therefore unenforceable. Don't engage with them and just ignore it. After a couple of further letters, they will go away.

They are doing the same to residents at East Float Quay, Dock Road so friends and family cannot visit. Just don't pay and don't get in touch. Rendall and Rittner have broight in u.k. parking control. Just a load of ex clamping firms. Just don't pay. I don't.
