    parking eye fine(first ever) 10th Aug 13 at 9:48 AM
    just received a parking fine notice for overstaying in our local farmfoods car park by 17 minutes,they want 75 reduced to 45 if paid within 14 days,im not disputing the fact i overstayed but i read that these fines are not enforcable,if i dont pay it what is likely to happen?any advice is welcomed

    Also as your wife has disabilities they have to make allowances for this.

    As well as all the good advice on here, write to the store manager of farm foods informing him you are implementing a mass local boycott of the store until such a time as these !!!!in clowns have gone and took their stinkin ANPR or attendants with them.....

    People who work hard for their money are really becoming annoyed with these companies preying on them for going shopping, nothing but scum

    Whilst I despise the (more recent) highly predatory instinct of ParkingEye, especially the ramping up and persecution of the Aldi customers via the LBA debacle, I must say that when faced with the inevitable (no win) they do seem to have the degree of common sense necessary to withdraw with a bit of grace.

    Feel genuinely happy for you MEMBER02.
