How would the PSNI even be aware of a civil matter?
So you don't pay the fine, you're not brought to court?

Nope.

It is all civil. You don't pay eventually a bailiff (within NI only) will come looking for the money. No courts involved at all.

Does that (forgive my ignorance of the finer points of the law!) mean that not paying an NI council parking ticket is not breaking the law?

Nope. The act of not paying is not an offence.

To get even more technical they are all civil contraventions not offences.

Have a read through the t&cs of your rental agreement - I take it you paid by CC?

Its the same with removing a clamp. If you can do it with no damage its a civil matter.

I got a parking fine in the north a couple of months ago. They sent a letter saying if it wasn't paid in two weeks it'd be increased to £90. I ignored it, then got a letter saying I now owe them £90. I ignored it too and now I've received a letter saying I owe them £135.

Should I keep ignoring them or just pay up? What will or could happen if I keep ignoring them? I rarely be in the north if that makes any difference.
