dfk41 Yep. The issue is that however the Beavis case has now set a precedent for:
- PCNs are not necessarily a penalty or an unfair term in a parking contract (which, although specific, are frankly the two main points one could appeal against). Particularly if they are configured as a way to keep people ‘moving’ rather than parking for long periods.
- To the tune of £50 to £100, it is a reasonable amount.
Therefore, a (much) lower court can now rule based on this judgement without fear (for the parking company) that they would get embroiled in expensive, multi-level litigation. Basically, they can now start a claim, pay a minimal fee (£35, that they can recover if the outcome is positive for them), and wait for you to cough up the money, if the situation is fairly similar to the Beavis case (overstay the maximum time limit).
