    I received a parking ticket from Northern Ireland, can I be prosecuted down here? They sent it to my Republic address. If I dont pay it can they do anything?

    If they come across your car again, in the north, even with a valid parking ticket, they can clamp your car. Computers have long memories!

    Ya think parking wardens in the North check every car with a valid parking ticket or do they just scan each plate now?

    Don't know, you see them inputting into their Husky data machines,you could get away for a long time. Probably best to saw the damn thing.

    £90 the thing is. Feck it gonna change the car in a few months so as long as I can't be prosecuted here ill chance it. Just have to remember about it when im up north again and not park on the street :)

    Yep it was £30 to begin with , but I didnt pay it because I didnt think they could trace my vehicle with a southern reg but I received the £90 one in the post today to my surprise. I wonder if i sent them Monopoly money what would happen. Nearly do it for the laugh

    Northern Authorities have full access to D.ept. of Transport data bases , so can get names and
    addresses. Dosn't seem to work other way round .

    It's a reciprocal agreement so it's up to the Irl authorities to take advantage of it.http://www.transport.ie/pressRelease.aspx?Id=177

    The agreement is only for an exchange of data, that does not mean full access. This PDF (apparently prepared for some conference) indicates the process, the authority on one side request details and the other authority replies with owner details. And vice-versa.

    Hi what ever happen on this I got one today,,, I drive a southern reg car ??


  • Registered Users Posts: 45 ✭✭✭ oodes


    I just ignored it to be honest. Got a letter about a month ago telling the fine went up. They cant do much , just have to remember not to get caught up there again or they will tow it. I really wanted to send some monopoly money but I had to restrain myself :D

    When u say don't get caught again do u mean like don't get caught Parkin or speed or do u mean don't take car back up?

    Dont park illegally up there because your reg will be in the system. Just dont give them a reason to tow. As for speeding i think that's a different crowd to the parking. Probably dealing with the cops there. Id ignore them too ðŸ˜

    No privatised speedchecks up North as far as I know, all done by police or civilian police staff to the best of my knowledge.
