INCORRECT REGISTRATION MEANS PCNs BEING ISSUED FOR PARKING WITHOUT A VALID TICKET .........BUT THIS RAISES A CURIOUS POINT OF LAW
When a motorist for whatever reason keys in the wrong car registration plate details but pays the correct money either a valid contract has been entered into or not.
Car parking firms can not say in one breath a contract has been entered into but the ticket is unfortunately invalid , because if a valid contract has been entered into then by definition the ticket has to be valid.
Moreover , if the ticket is deemed to be invalid by failure to carry out a precondition of the offer that correct CRP details are deemed to be an essential requirement to establish an unconditional acceptance of the offer, then by definition no contract has come into existence on which to allege any subsequent breach.
How private car parking firms have not been questioned in court over this curious point in law beggars belief.
