    aldi parking ticket

    hi guys does anyone know the law regards being issued a parking ticket for parking on an aldi car park?

    my girlfriend received one in the post today which claims she was 13 minutes over the permitted time. she parked there went in to town then came back and did some shopping in aldi before she left.

    the ticket has been issued by parking eye.... does she have to pay it and do they have authority to issue or enforce it? as thought only police and councils can issue parking tickets.

    Ignore
    Do not reply to them
    screen your calls ( if you till have a land line )
    They have no right in law to attempt to fine you

    It's a private ticket you do not have to pay it, same applies for the service station ones were its a private enforcement company.

    Agree, they will send you increasingly threatening letters, do not make any contact or you will go onto the 'hooked' list and they won't leave you alone. Ignore and they will eventually give up.

    I have had many letters and tickets from a parking company who look after the local hospital car park. I either just ignore them or write back about how the ticket it wrong. They never get enforced. It's basically a civil agreement between you and the parking company to park in their car park. They would have to take you to a civil court to enforce it. They would never waste their money with that. They earn enough from people who get scared with their official looking letters and tactics.

    As earlier said, the only parking tickets you need to pay are ones that are issued by police and councils because they are enforced in criminal court (magistrates) and you will get bent over.

    If you receive a letter from them just write on the envelope "return to sender" and put on it "I do not want to do business with you" but dont sign your name. Then drop it back in the post box

    I've got 7 on the go at the moment, the threatening letters make excellent log burners fuel.

    Don't ever ever ever be tempted to reply to the letters, just ignore them and they will go away

    Goes against what others are saying but I'd probs pay it if I were you. I was had in a service station McDonalds car park and never heard anything about it for a year (they had been writing to the wrong address). I only found out when I'd done referencing for a rented property and failed it because the parking ticket had been escalated to a County Court Judgement by Parking Eye which stays on your credit history for 6 years!! They had my number plate on ANPR so no way of me denying it if I'd wanted to. And because it had been so long since the ticket had been issued I ended up paying £160 which was crap. Jut my 2p worth
