    Wife parked in city side, went across road to get her elderly father from kwik fit. Had breakfast in tesco but got ticket as she left site, for a few minutes! it's disgusting seems they watch the side gate she walked out of.. Cheers
  • We got a ticket over at Boucher from them in October/November time and nothing came of it. Similar circumstances, in that we left the car park to go to somewhere else along the street before going to the coffee shop in the complex where we parked, and came back not 10 minutes later with a ticket on the windscreen.

    Found the attendants and gave them a piece of my mind. Was told by them just to ignore the ticket, as it couldn't be enforced!! Obviously some jobsworth just collecting a wage based on number of tickets issued... we did find out subsequently that they no longer were able to access DVA database due to having been found guilty of fiddling CCTV evidence etc. in their favour. So even though they have your reg and car details, they can't trace the owner or the registered address.

    Nothing but leeches, plain and simple. Obviously run by planks too thick/incompetent to make any meaningful contribution to society.

    Think they've given up on me. Got letters for months after parking at Cityside but haven't had one in ages now

    They have taken over management of the car park in Bloomfield Shopping Centre, Bangor from 2 May.

    Ignore and do not enter into any correspondence with them.

    Two tips.
    Don't pay those so called fines, they are not enforceable here or in Scotland.

    The other, don't go to Kwik fit.
