In an interview with the BBC Patrick Troy is on record as saying parking companies are considerate.
"BPA chief executive Patrick Troy says private car parking companies are considerate."Just how considerate can be judged by the actions of the British Parking Association Limited's biggest parking company, ParkingEye. No doubt they are the jewel in the crown of the BPA Ltd, and their behaviour is a model for all other parking companies to follow.
In this report on MoneySavingExpert, an 89 year old veteran of the 6th Airbourne division with a heart condition attended a cardiology walk in session. His condition was so serious he was whisked from reception by a passing doctor straight to a hospital bed where he was kept for a month. The parking system required blue badge visitors to notify reception. This may or may not have happened in the confusion, but it is certain the receptionist either failed to enter his registration number or chase up the possibility that he should have registered but did not.
ParkingEye issued letters which he never received due to his stay in hospital. Following that, they issued court proceedings. They refused mediation. Now, after apparently realising they should never have issued the charge, they refuse to cancel the claim unless the motorist hands over £50 from his pension.
This person did not work throughout his life so people like ParkingEye could grow fat from his pension. The Prankster wonders how ParkingEye's employees can sleep at night for refusing to cancel this charge.
