Reasons You Should Dispute a Parking Ticket
Receiving a parking ticket does not necessarily mean you have committed the stated offence. In some cases, you can point to evidence that will clear you of the charge. Some of the most common reasons that a parking ticket can be disputed include:
- Road signs were missing or incorrect
- Road markings were missing
- You have previously paid the fine
- The vehicle involved was not yours
- Your vehicle was stolen at the time of the offence
- You were not supplied with evidence from the city council the offence was committed.
What Happens if You Don't Pay a Parking Ticket in Manchester?
If you are considering not paying your parking ticket in Manchester or anywhere else in the UK, you may find yourself in more trouble the longer you put off taking action. In general, you have 28 days to pay any parking fine, whether it is issued by a city council or by a private car park company. During this time, it is important to file an appeal if you think the charge is in error. After 28 days have passed, the person who owns the vehicle will be notified of the PCN, and you will have an additional 28 days to pay. After the second 28-day period, the cost of the PCN will rise and you will no longer have the ability to appeal the ticket. An enforcement agent could get involved in the process to get you to pay, or you could also be taken to court to settle the issue.
