Parkingeye and Crapita, a marriage made in heaven, or possibly someplace warmer.
Crapita Capita has snapped up a reputation-boosting biz: the integrator will splash £57.5m on ParkingEye, which sells technology to monitor car parks to ensure nobody gets a freebie or goes dogging.

I was given a 'Parking Charge Notice' by this lovely brigade.
I had a very amusing afternoon taking some pics, and systematically destroying every single one of the points raised in their charge notice. Account closed.
Interesting reading about them on Pepipoo and Legal Beagles forums too....

Excuse me please! could you take that clamp off my ambulance I have an emergency to go to!
Not until you pay the fine, if you didn't want the clamp you should not have parked there, we were alerted about your parking and now you have to pay!
But it's a bloody ambulance!
That means nothing to me mate, everyone thinks they're special.

1. They are not fines.
2. They made 1 county court claim against a driver prior to 2012, which they lost.
3. Since April they have suddenly started making 1000 claims a MONTH. This was when Capita started sniffing around.
4. There is a £20m black hole in their accounts.
Somebody is screwing somebody here, and it's not just the motorist that is the one bending over.

Parking Eye - a bit disapointing
My other half couldn't get out of a Parking Eye monitored carpark whilst she was using my car (we are named drivers on each others cars as well as being insured to drive any car not belonging to us)
They only sent two demanding letters before giving up, for the amount they were demanding (it rises over time) I thought it would be worth at least three with the last one being in red.
Very amateurish and disapointing outfit

They are not fines... part II
However they are packaged up to look like proper police or council fines (for these are the only groups that can "fine" you in this instance) - they are not fines, they are invitations to pay an invoice.
With help and advice from a couple of good websites I have always declined those invitations to pay - and on the 3 occasions I can recall - they have all gone away.
