The British Parking Association Limited have issued the following guidelines to all members.
“the following practices may be considered as Code breaches and must not be continued:
• Asking the motorist to enter into additional correspondence to obtain a POPLA code
• Failing to include a correct and/or valid POPLA Code within the Rejection correspondence
• Issuing a POPLA Code with a date identifier which is significantly different from the date of rejection
• Appearing to indicate that the issue of a POPLA Code is conditional on driver details being supplied “
The Prankster welcomes this move by the BPA Ltd; he hopes their bite is as good as their bark, and that these code breaches will be strictly enforced from now on. Operators have had over a year to get used to the new regime and slippery attempts to avoid POPLA simply cannot be allowed to continue.
