How to Challenge Your Harrow PCN in Two Minutes

It's no secret that parking in the UK can be challenging, and many people accidentally violate parking rules that lead to a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN). PCNs result in fees that are supposed to be paid to the local government within a specified number of days. But what if you were issued a erroneously?

You can challenge a PCN online or with a letter, but the entire process can take plenty of time and effort. If you fail to include some pertinent information, or you simply don't know how to advocate for yourself, your challenge is unlikely to be accepted. Fortunately, DoNotPay can draft a challenge letter for your Harrow PCN in as little as two minutes.

Parking Violations That Can Result in a PCN

There are numerous reasons a person may receive a regarding parking, including:

  • Parking on grass or an unmarked parking area
  • Abandoning a vehicle
  • Parking on double yellow lines
  • Parking in a designated spot outside of the allowed hours
  • Parking in a bay reserved for those with disabilities without a valid blue badge
  • Blocking a driveway or loading zone

These are just a few of the dozens of possible reasons a person may receive a Harrow parking ticket. To avoid paying such fees, only park in designated parking areas during allowed hours. If there is some sort of emergency that causes you to park illegally, you can include that in your challenge if you decide to contest the ticket.

Paying a Harrow PCN

It happens to the best of us–you're in a hurry, so you find what appears to be an open spot and park your car there, only to come back to a PCN on your windshield. If you were issued a PCN for a parking violation, you can pay with one of three methods:

  • Online with a credit card
  • By telephone with a credit card
  • By mail with a cheque

Parking violations cost between £60 and £130, and the severity of the violation will impact how much is fined. If you were rightfully given a violation, we recommend paying the associated fee as soon as possible. If you pay your fine within 14 days of its issue, you can get your fines reduced by 50%.

If you were issued a PCN wrongly, you typically also have 14 days to dispute it.
