Parking Eye Parking Tickets

Who are Parking Eye?

Parking Eye Limited are the biggest Parking Company in the UK.  This is both by volume of tickets issued and staff employed

Parking Eye has a turn over of over £22 million per year from the issuing of parking tickets alone.  Many people call these Parking Fines/Parking Charge notices or PCNs.  The Company is based in Chorley, Preston

99.9% of the tickets issued are by  ANPR cameras which monitor the flow of cars in and out and the location which are being monitor

By Volume they undeniable the most successful Parking Company in the UK

Parking Eye used to be part of Capita but were sold at the end of 2018

Parking Eye mainly use ANPR cameras which monitor cars going in and out of car parks then these issue tickets for those who overstay or not permitted to park.

By Volume they undeniable the most successful Parking Company in the UK.  They have contracts with various supermarkets like ALDI and Morrison’s.  These being well known.  Morrisons are looking at canceling their contract due to the issues this Parking Comapany has caused thier customers.

Parking Eye works in the following ways:

  1. When a car enters or leaves a car park it is photographed by the Parking Eye ANPR cameras.  These are located at the entrance and exits in the car parks.
  2. If the car has stayed longer than the maximum time, or over any paid time a parking ticket is issued.  A ticket is also issued if the car is no authorised to park.
  3. Parking Eye would then obtain the registered keepers details from the DVLA for a small fee. For information see
  4. Normally within 14 days of parking, Parking Eye will send a letter to the registered keeper of the vehicle.  If the ticket is not issued within 14 days of the parking to the keeper of the Vehicle then keeper liability does not apply.
  5. This notice to keeper will ask for payment of the parking charge which is often up to £100, or they will ask the name of the driver at the time of the parking event. If the driver is declared they will then chase the driver for payment.
  6. Under The Protection of Freedoms Act, Parking Eye has the right to pursue the keeper of the vehicle if no driver is named.  This is only if the ticket is issued within 14 days to the keeper.
  7. If the charge is not paid or appealed then they will either pass the parking charge over to a debt collection company, which is normally Debt Recovery Plus  or Equita, who will write to the driver or keeper of the vehicle.  They will also do this if the appeal has been declined at POPLA.
  8. Since the introduction of The Protection of Freedoms Act Parking Eye has issued huge number of court claims many people simply pay up on receipt of a court claim from parking eye. Parking Eye top the statistics of the number of county court claims among parking companies.  People quite fairly get worried when they received a court claim through the post.

Can Parking Eye issue Parking Fines

Parking tickets are often called fines by both the general public and the press.  This is due to the fact that they both look similar so people treat them the same.  For all intents and purposes they look like a Penalty Charge that are issued by local councils.

Even thought these are not parking fines in the same sense that Council issues, Parking currently sue thousands of motorists for Parking Tickets that are not dealt with.   There is a myth online that they are not enforceable.  They are.  The Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 confirms this.
