    Why would you be charged 50p/hour to do your weekly shop? I was talking about pay & display car parks not free car parks.

    As for delays at the exit it doesn't happen at the multi-storey car parks that I frequent here in Norwich. You pop the ticket that you received on entry into a separate machine where you pay before departure. The ticket is endorsed & you put the ticket into the machine on exit. If you shop in John Lewis & park in the adjacent car park then you hand over your ticket when you buy something in store & the assistant behind the counter pops your ticket in a machine so when you finally come to pay you get a discount.

    I can see that pay & display might be an option where entry/exit barriers aren't possible e.g. on street parking but that wouldn't be a private parking company enforcing that anyway.

    Just listened to this. BPA seem to be saying that the major non-compliance centred around lack of access to POPLA appeals service via VP.

    Similarities with Parking Eye seemingly purely coincidental :huh:

    Yep I thought that too - and re UKCPS as well. Complaints to the BPA needed each time.
    PRIVATE 'PCN'? DON'T PAY BUT DON'T IGNORE IT (except N.Ireland).

  • Mr Troy states that motorists can appeal to an "adjudicator".

    Slightly tangential to this thread, but just had a look at Patrick Troy's bio.

    ' Patrick was appointed Chief Executive of the British Parking Association (BPA) in December 2008.

    He has overseen the development of legislation for the private parking sector, placed the consumer at the heart of decision making within the BPA and established clear accountabilities for the decision-making structure within the Association.
    '

    Got me a bit confused, need a drink :)

    I heard the broadcast. My heart was really bleeding for him. So sad, that his kids will lose their inheritance It might mean that they have to go out and get a proper job. So sad! :D:D:D
    I can afford anything that I want.
    Just so long as I don't want much.

    I bet his children will be well chuffed that dad was willing to pass on the inheritance of creating misery for thousands of people.

    Mind you! .... Being despised by nearly everyone seems to be a family trait ... :rotfl:

    That system of parking validation is used a bit in the part of America I visited earlier in the month.

    Something like (in a restaurant car-park):
    $1 per 15 minutes upto 2 hours [sign didn't say what happens if you spend more than 2 hours in the car-park, most likely the charges will stay the same at $1 per 15 minutes], or free with parking validation from the restaurant.

    Restaurant goers get free parking, everybody else is free to park and pay the stated charges.
