How to Appeal a Redbridge PCN Easily

In the London Borough of Redbridge, Civil Enforcement Officers patrol the streets daily to make sure that the borough's traffic and parking laws are enforced. If you have parked in a prohibited area or remained in your parking spot too long, you will likely receive a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) -- commonly known as a parking ticket. Parking tickets in Redbridge generally cost between £80 and £130, depending on the offence. Failing to pay the PCN can result in some rather serious consequences. However, what happens if you want to challenge the ticket for reasons such as misleading parking signs, or proof that you had not parked illegally? Fortunately, DoNotPay can make it easy to .

How to Pay Your Redbridge PCN Online

Many people choose to pay their parking ticket online, even if they do not feel that the ticket is fair, for reasons such as:

  • They don't understand that they can challenge the fine.
  • The process of challenging a fine is overwhelming to them.
  • They don't know the evidence they can use to support their claim.
Can You Request a Refund ViaYes/No

The Redbridge Borough makes it relatively simple to pay the fine by offering an online payment method. To use this method, you must provide information that includes your 10-digit ticket number. In Redbridge, PCNs all begin with the letters ‘AF’. If you do not see an AF on your ticket, it was likely issued by another borough. You also need to supply your vehicle registration number, and a valid debit or credit card.

How Long Do You Have to Pay a Redbridge Parking Ticket?

If you wish to pay for your parking ticket, you have 28 days to do so. This is also the length of time you have to challenge the PCN. Failing to pay or challenge within this period can potentially result in consequences. It should be noted, however, that paying your ticket within 14 days can result in a reduction of up to 60% of your fine.

Five Things That Can Happen if You Fail to Pay Your Parking Ticket on Time

If you fail to pay your Redbridge PCN or challenge it within 28 days, the consequences can include:

  1. A 50% increase in the cost of the fine.
  2. Loss of your right to appeal the PCN.
  3. Damage to your credit as a result of collection efforts and late payments.
  4. The Court can send a bailiff to possess your personal belongings as payment for the debt.
  5. Allowing tickets to accrue can result in points off your licence and can even lead to a driving ban.

Disputing a Redbridge Parking Fine

In order to dispute a Redbridge parking fine, you should access the information about your fine on the borough's website. Once you enter the identification number on your PCN and your vehicle's registration number, you will be provided information about your available options. In order to dispute your ticket, you must provide a letter stating the reason for the dispute, as well as the evidence you have that supports your claim.
