When you receive a PCN, you may feel that you have no choice but to pay it. That is not the case. You have the legal right to contest your PCN, and with DoNotPay's easy-to-use feature, you can take care of the matter in just a few moments.
Receiving a Parking Charge Notice in Reading
When you receive a Reading PCN, you'll want to understand both the timing involved and the options you have.
The Timing of a PCN
Unfortunately, it's relatively easy to receive a PCN.
- Parking on double yellow lines
- Parking on a single yellow line outside the permitted times
- Parking in a clearway
- Parking in a loading bay
- Parking in zigzag lines
- Parking in an otherwise reserved area
Not all PCNs are giving parking, however. Other minor infractions could lead you to receive a PCN, but whatever the cause, the important matter to remember is the timing involved.
You have only 28 days from the time of your citation to pay or contest your PCN. Thankfully, DoNotPay makes it easier than ever to do the latter.
PCN Payment Options
In nearly all cases, you will pay your Reading PCN through the Reading Borough Council.
- Visit the Reading Borough website.
- Enter the information printed on your PCN (Including your VRN)
- Follow the prompts to pay your fine.
|Online||Reading Borough Council - Pay Parking Fine|
|Phone Number||0343 357 1177|
|Reading Borough Council
PO BOX 3011
Reading RG1 9RY
Of course, you always have the option of contesting your PCN within 28 days of the notice.
Is Contesting a Parking Ticket in Reading Worth the Time and Energy Involved?
Though it sounds like a hassle to contest a parking ticket in Reading, it's worth making the effort. Private parking firms issued a total of 4.4 million penalty notices in the 2020/21 financial year, an analysis of Government data by the RAC Foundation has suggested. The astonishing figures run from the height of the coronavirus pandemic in April 2020 until April 2021, when most lockdown restrictions remained in place. (Express) That is a staggering number of fines, especially considering how much fewer people were hitting the motorways during the series of pandemic lockdowns. Imagine the money that could be saved if even a fraction of those individuals turned up to contest their PCNs.
Appealing a parking ticket is your right as a citizen of the UK. It is one of the reasons you have 28 days in which to make your payment. If you have never gone through the process before, it may sound scary and overwhelming. But you don't have to figure things out on your own. DoNotPay has a product in place to guide you through the procedure and make it easy.
