Flashpark: Wheel Clamping Ban Will Expose Alternative Solutions
The impending ban on wheel clamping has been welcomed by Flaspark's Costas Constantino as providing a fairer deal for drivers and landowners.
London (I-Newswire) September 25, 2012 - Flashpark's Costas Constantino has welcomed the impending ban on wheel clamping, which he believes will allow fairer services - for both landowners and drivers - to flourish.
Wheel clamping will come to an end on 1 October this year and will be replaced with parking tickets. After this date, legitimate companies will be required to abide by a strict code from the British Parking Association if they want to have access to offenders' details in order to chase up payments.
There is some concern that just anyone will have a go at issuing tickets to make a quick buck. But the need to adhere to regulations in order to access driver information should ensure that the practice is only beneficial to landlords following the proper routes with legitimate companies.
Furthermore, those businesses that were previously clamping unreasonably will be unable to operate, exposing the benefits of services offered by legitimate companies. Mr Constantino, from Flashpark, explained: “Only those that comply with the strict rules to obtain keeper details will last in this industry."
He added: “Parking charge notices will fill the vacuum generated by the clamping ban and the introduction of keeper liability will soon test operators evidence collecting skills”
Flashpark is among those legitimate companies to have worked hard to develop alternatives to clamping. One such service is its unique method to allow landowners to report unauthorised parking online.
After creating a free account with Flashpark and displaying clear warnings on the land informing people that there is no parking, the landowner just needs to photograph offending vehicles and upload these with details of the offence to their account. Flashpark will send the vehicle owner a penalty charge notice (PCN) and the landowner will receive £15 for each paid PCN.
2012 has proved to be a good year for motorists. There are now strict regulations in place to prevent clamping and towing, as well as an independent appeals service – POPLAR – that allows drivers to make appeals regarding PCNs issue for parking on private land when an appeal is rejected by the operator.
