    Parking Eye 17th Oct 16 at 7:16 PM
    I got stung by Parking Eye in Newquay.

    Parked found change and paid for an hour. Walked to the beach and back in 55 minutes. Changed shoes ate a sandwich and left the car park. Total time 1:27 for which I got a £60 fine.

    Anyone know what the limits are to enter, park, purchase a ticket and depart? The camera films you at the instant you enter and depart.

    Please get yourself into the Parking Tickets Subforum here and start by having a good read of the Newbies Sticky - it will inform you of the current situation and lay-out your options for seeing them off. Which is usually straightforward with Parking Eye.

    Also, read recent threads about PE in Newquay to see what challenges worked for other people. There are quite a few but keep it to the last six months or so so you have up to date info.

    So it took you 32 minutes to eat a sandwich?

    But it looks like you are well-up to them anyway!

    Take the advice of the 'experts' in the Parking sub forum.

    Make sure that you read all the stickies first before posting and asking questions or you will get flak.
    When I was growing up plastic surgery was a bit of a taboo subject. These days if you mention botox no one raises an eyebrow.
