Has any one else had a demand for payment or threat to sue from Australian National Car Parks?
They are the dudes behind places like Barkly Square car park, where you are expected to get a ticket even tho it's free, and they 'fine' you if you dont.
They've recently started sending letters to everyone demanding payment for 'fines' from two years ago. Follow up letters have a threat to sue.
I spoke to Legal Aid about this mob. They said it's completely illegal, they have no jurisdiction to fine, and they will have a very hard time arguing for a law suit under contract law, when they have suffered no losses (as parking is free).
DONT PAY IF YOU GET ONE OF THESE.
Legal Aid have a standard fuck you letter they send through, and they want to track all the cases and possibly take them to court. so if you get one, go see legal aid.
the ACCC also recommed you dont pay these fines, and they also want to know about people who receive them.
