Why are Parking Penalty Notices issued?
Virgin Trains East Coast Main Line Company Ltd operates a parking penalty scheme in order to discourage indiscriminate parking and parking without payment.
The parking tickets that Virgin Trains East Coast issue are called Parking Penalty Notices (PPN). They are issued in accordance with Section 14 of the Railway Byelaws. They require you to pay a penalty, do not result in points on a driving licence, however, may result in a criminal record if the case is subsequently heard in the Magistrate’s Court or a judgment against you if heard in the County Court.
PPNs may be issued on roads within Virgin Trains East Coast managed premises or in Virgin Trains East Coast managed car parks.
Revenue Protection Support Services (RPSS) based in Portsmouth deal with the administration of the PPN scheme on behalf of Virgin Trains East Coast. Prosecutions are dealt with by Virgin Trains East Coast’s Prosecution Unit.
