As per our previous letter, we can confirm that we have made our final decision regarding your appeal.
Please refer back to this letter and the three options that are available to you.
We appreciate that this is not the outcome you will have hoped for. Please forward on a copy of the drivers death certificate, otherwise, unless you have any additional information that you have not already brought to our attention, this decision is final. Although further correspondence will be noted and filed, please do not expect any response from us except where you have provided new evidence to substantiate your case.
The Prankster is amazed (but probably shouldn't be) at the crass insensitivity of this letter. Given that the car park was Mount Vernon Hospital (a well known centre for cancer treatment), The Prankster feels that the tone of the letter at this sad time for all concerned is completely over the top. Mr Mustard, who provided The Prankster with the letter, (and who is top notch on fighting council tickets) suggests a more reasonable reply would be along the lines:
Given that this is a stressful time we will take no further action to pursue our claim until 90 days has elapsed.
Yours most sincerely
The Prankster agrees. Sadly, it seems that UKPC are more concerned with pursuing the loot at any cost, even though they are in breach of the British Parking Association Limited Code of Practice for pursuing a driver with a blue badge.
16.5 If your landowner provides a concession that allows parking for disabled people, if a vehicle displays a valid Blue Badge you must not issue it with parking charge notices.
