The Prankster speculates that the total number of cases issued in July will be 1662 if ParkingEye kept issuing cases at the same rate. This will mean that in one month ParkingEye only filed 2.77 times more court cases than the whole parking industry did in 2012. The Prankster previously stated that they issued more than three times the number of cases as the whole parking industry did in 2012.
The Prankster wishes to apologise to anyone who has been misinformed by his earlier article.
These graphs should explain the situation.
Claims issued by ParkingEye since March 2011 (2390)
Number of claims in 2011 (5)
Number of claims in 2012 (8)
Number of claims Jan-Apr 2013 (225)
Number of claims May-Jun 2013 (2122)
The Prankster trusts this makes everything clear.
Based on this FoI request, The Prankster estimates ParkingEye will issue 700,000 parking charges in 2013, or about 60,000 a month. The BPA Ltd estimated that 40% of these will go unpaid, or 24000. This makes the chance of ParkingEye currently taking a case to court to be around 6-7%.
