But are ParkingEye's systems reliable? And if not, how many motorists are being charged hundreds of pounds due to ParkingEye's shoddy systems?
Here is one example. The motorist parked in Swiss Cottage London, which offers £10 all day parking.
The motorist purchased a ticket for £10 within 3 minutes of arriving, and entered their correct registration number.
ParkingEye, for reasons only known to them, issued a parking charge.
The big question of course is, how broken are ParkingEye's systems and how often do errors like this occur?
It seems there is a continuing problem at this location
Booked through Park Here and yes its very convenient for Central College etc, followed the instructions and then two weeks later i get a demand for £100 from the well known scammers Parking Eye with a photo of my reg entering the car park. Contacted Park here by phone ( don't bother emailing) and was asked to scan in the demand. They seemed a bit upset that i called parking Eye scammers so I got suspicious about the two working the scam together - i emailed them the demand as requested but heard nothing so can only assume they work together to scam motorists - the demands have gon in the bin as they have no legal basis anyway - dont use this car park please
Be very wary of using this car park. We just pulled into car park slip road see what they charge and decided not to park, but have now been issued with a fine notice for £120
Here is another example.
In this case the motorist stayed 2 hours in a car park free for 3 hours...and still got a ticket from ParkingEye.
If you purchased a correct ticket and ParkingEye are taking you to court, feel free to file the above evidence to show how unreliable ParkingEye's systems are.
If you think that parking companies should only issue charges when there is a reason, and should not issue bogus charges whenever they feel like it, sign Barry Beavis's petition asking the government to take action.
Alternatively, if you are happy to get a CCJ when you have done nothing wrong, please ignore this.
