ParkingEye - The One Show (9th-Nov-2017)

ParkingEye, one of the largest private parking firms in the country.

If you get stung by a private parking company, go to www.facebook.com/groups/fightyourprivateparkinginvoice/

If you get a council fine, head to www.pepipoo.com

I got stung by them, doing what the motorway signs say, “TIREDNESS KILLS TAKE A BREAK” and got penalised for it. I went to court, fought it and was ordered to pay £200 to ParkingEye.

Should I have carried on driving and risked an accident, possibly killing someone??? I was so tired it was difficult staying between the white lines let alone reading what was on any of the signs. I was just looking for somewhere I could park up and get some rest. Two hours was not enough to rest safely.

They’re parasites, feeding off the motorist, only interested in money. Sure, you can appeal to them and then to POPLA but they will always refuse the appeal and POPLA do’t always help out either.
I'm going on a road trip to meet a mum who took on parking I one of the biggest private parking firms in the business a company that boasts a 90 percent win rate in courts but not against this guy I guess it does help that he happens to be leading human rights lawyer Nick Bowen hello so Nick tell me what happened in your case I was driving down the m4 I was tired so I pulled into a service station fell asleep meant to stay there for 10 minutes woke up two and a half hours later and subsequently some months later I was bombarded with nasty letters from parking Lee as it was the middle of the night in the car park was empty Nick says he didn't realize he had to pay for his overstate I was exhausted I would may well have had a crash it's unfair when there's what appears to me to be a compelling public interest in in Road Safety Nick's health and safety concerns that tired drivers shouldn't be penalized with the basis of his legal arguments against paying parking eyes 85 can't charge he didn't even appeal that charge but simply waited for the company to take him to court but in August a judge struck out the case after parking I failed to pursue it and instead it was the firm that had to pay out all of next court costs what I've learned from my experience with them is even though they started with great resolve if you stick with it they crumble the spotlight Nick's placed on questionable charges comes at a time when private parking firms bought more than one and a half million motorists details from the DVLA to chase drivers for alleged infringement some of those motorists who like Nick were hit with parking charges for oversleeping at service stations and not paying to park have asked him for help fighting back if our emails from people like nurses you've been on long shifts again tired their parking up to rest the general theme here is that people stop to stay safe another driver to contact Nick is London cabbie Stewart Wilder they're out of control you can't go anywhere without like Nick Stewart got a charge after taking a break from a long drive and over sleeping beyond the free parking limit he decided to take parking eye to court and is awaiting the outcome I don't really think they're taking into account the mitigating circumstances basic they are after one thing and one thing alone which is cash in a statement parking I said tired drivers can rest for two hours for free its service station car parks and if they ever say that to our limit they can pay for the additional time before leaving as explained on their signs parking I added that drivers can challenge charges with the independent appeal service but it's not just a top human rights lawyer who thinks some parking companies are taking motorists for a ride in July the parking code of practice bill was presented to Parliament calling for an end to self regulation of the industry and unfair charges in the meantime will the industry at least listen to Nick's concerns we're on our way to the group who set standards for the parking industry the British parking Association and as luck would have it they're actually holding their annual conference right here in London today but there's one small problem so Nick I mean we were hoping to get our cameras inside today but they won't let us in well I don't know what I can say I just wanted to ask a simple question about being treated really on in a statement the British parking Association said the private companies managing car parks are doing so on behalf of land owners and applying their rules but we did manage to convince one of those speaking at today's conference to talk to us Steve Gooding is director of the RAC foundation I would be much happier if the BPA allowed far more of their customers in any good business knows that it's the complaints about your service that tell you where you need to make changes so while we're not all legal experts like Nick it might just be worth fighting your corner against what you think isn't unfair charge if you think that you are genuinely being treated unfairly then fight them sort of time for the little man to fight back really well Nick from the film joins us now now Nick obviously this parking company is a business they've got to make money so they're charging by the hour or by the period that you're parking for so you know they're in it to make money well they are and it's often very legitimate to charge people but only when there's a really sensible commercial reason like in the day and that's been tested by the courts and it's been absolutely fair yeah but what happened to me was I fell asleep or almost fell asleep on the motorway and stopped and I thought I was being sensible and I end up being pursued by debt collectors and parking companies for overstaying when I genuinely had absolutely no idea that there was such a thing as charging at night for sleeping in a you know safe space right so you just didn't realize you had to pay for the parking it wasn't that you because they gave you the option did they're not a part of paying afterwards well but it's yeah but that's only if you get out of the car exhausted and look at the micro type at another sign and it just wasn't sign posted so the whole the whole thing was a bit of a trap and I just wasn't prepared to give up when they pursued me well there is a bill going through Parliament's I mean nothing to do with you to achieve them well what they hope to achieve there's a hero or seemed to be a hero MP call I think so Greg Knight who's backing a private member's bill second reading in I think February or March and it's to regulate the whole industry to try and bring in a statutory code of practice which will make them behave fairly because since this happened to me I'm flooded with emails well I'm not written well please know I'm not really a parking lawyer but but I've just found myself happy the one thing that seems to unite the nation is a is a lack of confidence or distrust in the private parking industry well this is the thing you're driving along the motorway you don't have to drive far before you say one of those signs that say take a break if the systems fair I mean obviously you can't you'd be really angry if somebody came and parked on your own Drive yeah you've got it's got to be regulated but it's got to be regulated fairly and it isn't and that's what this this this bill is going to achieve but the whole thing is it's all about money it's a massive massive business the RAC have looked at this that crunched the figures they they they estimate that now or coming on for 2017 2018 2018 2019 sorry on current estimates they'll be about 10 million data releases from the DVLA current the last figures were four million now seven million this year then ten million that equates to about a billion pounds of income so the price those aren't my figures those the RAC and and the parking companies pay the DVLA for the details of the driver and there's two pounds 50 ago so that's about between 16 and 25 million to the DVLA so the whole thing is financed driven and I think what the what they're trying to do is they're trying to regulate it to slow it down because here are 16,000 tickets a day being issued
