A driver from Lincolnshire has amassed an astonishing £14000 worth of private parking fines.
He has already been served with four county court judgements totalling more than £3,000 by Leeds-based firm UK Car Park Services.
His vehicle, a Ford Mondeo, was often ticketed for being parked across disabled bays.
“Steve Hall, UKCPS legal manager, said:”This is one of the highest parking charge debts to be served on a single motorist in the UK for parking on private land.
“Four of the undefended county court judgements amount to £3,265, with an additional £10,000 still to be issued. The vehicle was often parked across more than one bay. On many occasions, the charges were for parking out of marked bays and without authority.”
“The vehicle dashboard was clearly visible for all passing people to see,scattered with unpaid parking tickets.”
“Staff have reconstructed the relevant section of the pages to discover the parking charge numbers referred back to the vehicle.”
Despite many motorists believing that UKCPS has no powers to enforce the charges, once their contractual warning signs are up and an agreement signed with the landowner or their agent, parking charge notices can be issued.
