Been stung by a Parking fine? You may not have to pay!

The RAC have said that £££Millions in private parking penalties may have been charged illegally.

The RAC commissioned a report from barrister John de Waal QC, who said some parking companies were levying charges disproportionate to the losses suffered by landowners.

In England and Wales clamping, towing, blocking-in or immobilising a vehicle without lawful authority on private land was banned under The Protection of Freedoms Act 2012, in a bid to end abuses by rogue clamping firms.

And where parking signs were not clear or prominently displayed, the charge could be challenged on the grounds of unfairness.
