The majority of us at some point in our lives have received a fine or penalty notice for parking in a particular place with parking restrictions. The rise of technology has also introduced cameras that can now scan your number plate and provide accurate arrival and departure times that may lead to a penalty notice if signage is not followed. We all know the expense of lawyers and how difficult it may be to challenge a ticket without the inside knowledge of laws and regulations that involve parking. Now there is an innovative new way of avoiding a parking ticket online which was designed by someone as young as 18 years old.
Josh Bowder from North London has designed and built the website DoNotPay.co.uk. This website can stop you from paying for parking tickets by instantly registering and choosing from an array of templates designed to email the parking company. The best thing about this is that it is free and according to Josh it will be free forever! Below is an image of the templates that you can choose that may relate to your incident:
Registering for DoNotPay.co.uk only takes approximately 30 seconds, all you need to do is enter your email address and password and you will have instant access to all the templates on the website.
After you have signed up and have chosen the one that best describes why you shouldn’t receive a parking charge, then you will be asked to fill in your details. Below are two example of what details you may need to complete, this will be different depending on what template you choose.
After you have completed the form press Generate Appeal and the system will provide you with a well-written letter that can be sent through email or letter form. If you would like to print out this template, there is an option to do so. Make sure you attach evidence and pictures to support your claim, having a witness and other evidence will bolster your appeal.
