This car park appears to be a right little earner for the enforcement people!! :bashy:The pay by phone system didn't allow the driver or passenger to reigister the required details when attending a funeral at the ajacent church.
Finally getting through after the service, and inputting the relevant information the automated system wanted a fee of £12.00 (. £6.00 all day) and not the True cost of £2.40. For 2 hours.
As the transaction was not completed its presumed the registration phase was cancelled and therefore a PCN subsequently issued.
Having consulted the oracle known as BE they owner of the land ( the church) Were contacted and the reverant Liddel spoken too.
The circumstances were explaned and worryingly he stated it was an on going issue he wasn't happy with the situation as they had received a number of complaints and parking people hadn't /weren't doing anything.
A email was sent outlying in detail what had happened and that there was never any intention not to pay it was the system that prevent the driver doing so.
Several e mails later from what appears to be the church, the lease holders, the enforcement people and the driver they have stated they will be cancelling the ticket , get this " as a good will gesture"
The email chain list the following
Whetstone parish church Reverend Liddell from driver of car
