British Parking Association Limited issues clarification on code of practice breaches

The Parking Prankster's attention was pointed to this post on moneysavingexpert.

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.

Happy Parking
