Third time unlucky. ParkingEye drop case at Bristol Retail Park

ParkingEye apparently decided not to risk losing a third case at Bristol Retail Park due to irregularities in their signage, and finally dropped their claim.

This was an unusual case because a relative of the motorist appealed to POPLA without her knowledge or consent - the motorist was abroad at the time. The appeal was based on mitigating circumstances and was therefore refused. When the motorist found out, she tried to appeal herself using tried and trusted appeal reasons which had always won. Both POPLA and ParkingEye refused to accept the appeal.

ParkingEye also refused to cancel the charge, despite the motorist (aided by another relative) writing to ParkingEye on many occasions, pointing out the many cases they lost, and especially the cases they lost on the same car park due to the deficient signage.

Finally ParkingEye cancelled the claim, perhaps fearing a second dose of Melville-Shreeve-ism, or perhaps because they could not find any LPC Law associate willing to accept a hospital pass in the way that 'That Mr Gopal' did.
