[Important notice. This has nothing to do with the already running rival service hosted (but not operated) by ParkingCowboys which can be found here http://www.parkingcowboys.co.uk/appeals-service/]
A parking operator has announced a fixed fee service to cancel parking charges from other operators.
The website, www.petas.co.uk is still under development, although the service was scheduled for launch this weekend.
Recognising that most parking charges are invalid the operator has broken ranks and decided to cash in.
The Parking Prankster saw a short-lived thread on MoneySavingExpert advertising this new service, with some posters for and some against. The Prankster will throw his hat into the ring and side with the parking operator. He hopes many more operators will join in and offer similar services.
This will have the effect of driving down parking charges until they are valid, at which point the operators will cotton on to the fact they cannot run a business on monies from pre-estimate of loss and will have to charge a management fee to the landowner. This will then remove the incentive to issue absurd tickets and everyone will be happy.
The Prankster hopes that the British Parking Association Ltd will align themselves fully behind this enterprising new scheme which will help drive up standards in the parking industry and will provide a cheap service for those people too busy to appeal themselves.
The Prankster already thinks he knows the winner of the British Parking Association Ltd 2015 Innovation in Parking Award.
Except Capita who forked out £57.5 million without doing their homework.
