No honour amongst...operators

The Prankster notes the following text on the Parking Ticketing Ltd website

According to the IPC, Premier Parking Logistics is a trading name of Walton Wilkins, although this is not apparent from PPL's website.

As well as apparently ripping off PTL's website, Walton Wilkins seems quite happy to openly lie. He claims PPL "are one of the few companies that rigorously pursue unpaid parking charges via the courts".

This appears to be a big fat porkie pie, although he has been taken to court 3 times and ordered to pay back clamping fees.

The BMPA web site has no data on PPL court claims, suggesting that Walton's idea of "rigorously pursuing unpaid parking charges via the courts" may attribute different meaning to the words "rigorously", "pursuing" and "courts" to those most people use.

It would also be interesting if Walton would be able to name any of his "in-house legal experts" and explain what their legal qualifications are and why they are experts.

It would also be interesting to see the "small sample of cases taken to court". Althought the PTL site does list a few cases they have won, the rip-off PPL site lists none at all...which is hardly surprising.

Prankster Note

It appears PPL have recently sold off some of their back catalogue to MIL Collections, so there may well be a few court cases coming up in the next months.

Happy Parking

  1. To be honest that reads like Trevor Whitehouse BS!

  2. Presumably PPL have obtained the DVLA's permission to pass on RK data to MIL? Otherwise they could find themselves on the end of a claim based on breach of the DPA. And that would be terrible.

  3. the dvla will not act , they are more bothered about £2.50s that the rules
    all the older claims pre 21/10/2016 the guy was,nt even in an ATA !! and the DVLA rules state that you have to be in an ATA to get info for private parking offences ,

  4. Shame neither PPC can spell rigorously, never mind define it. Can't be more blatant in copying if you include spelling errors.

  5. I'm chuckling at how PPL refers to their customers as Offenders. Here I am thinking that drivers willingly and knowingly enter into a fair contract with a PPC - seems a little mean to refer to them as Offenders.
