Challenge Your Barnet PCN From Your Phone

Getting a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) is not fun for anyone. You can get one if you are caught parking in an unauthorised zone or disobeying other parking and bus lane rules.

However, sometimes, people get issued a PCN when they have not actually violated any parking laws. If you would like to , DoNotPay can help you do it in a timely manner.

Whether you choose to pay the fine or you need to know how long a PCN can be issued after the violation, DoNotPay can assist. We have disputed tickets in Birmingham, Islington, London, and many other cities in the UK.

How Are Barnet PCNs Issued?

If you are caught parking in an area that you should not be parking in, you could end up with a penalty charge notice.

There are a few ways that you will receive a PCN:

  1. Placed on the windshield of your vehicle
  2. Handed to you by a police officer or parking enforcement agent
  3. In the mail

In most cases, you will find the PCN on your windshield. However, thanks to CCTV, there are cameras all around that can record your traffic and parking contraventions. If they are able to capture your plates, you will receive the PCN in the mail.

Why Would You Get a Barnet PCN?

The most popular reason why people receive is because of a parking violation.

Some of the most common violations include:

  • Parking in a disabled spot
  • Parking in front of a bus stop
  • Driving in a bus lane
  • Parking in a restricted area
  • Parking in two parking spots or parking in another unusual way

How Much Is a Barnet Parking Ticket?

  • Your name
  • Your vehicle registration number
  • Your PCN number
  • Your post number
