Private parking tickets can be challenged in court

Private parking tickets and legal challenge

People who are charged unfairly by private car parks have grounds for legal challenge - according to a new legal opinion obtained by Citizens Advice Scotland.

The CAB Service in Scotland has been campaigning on this issue over the past year through the 'It's Not Fine' campaign which found that many people are being charged large amounts of money for very short over-stays. The campaign also found that private car parks often don’t have clear signage setting out their fees, and that many firms were using aggressive and misleading tactics when pursuing debts.
