    10 minutes over! 5th Jul 18 at 12:29 PM
    Hi everyone

    I received a parking fine letter from the car park of my local ALDI.

    Frustratingly I am only 10 minutes over and having done some research I am aware that you are supposed to be allowed an extra 10 minutes. Is the fine therefore invalid?

    I do have a receipt for this visit also, the time of which is 4 minutes before the time they recorded me leaving the car park.

    What would be the best way to approach this please?

    I have tried to add an image of the letter below the am
    Unable to do so as a new member.

    Many thanks
    Sarah

    At the top of this board is a thread that tells Newbies to read it first. Post 1 of that thread has instructions on what to do and has a template letter to send.

    Regardless, complain to the CEO as a customer
    to get this cancelled, enclose your receipt

    ALDI UK

    Mr Giles Hurley Chief Executive Officer

    Email gmd.cs@aldi.co.uk


    A strongly worded letter should suffice.

    Thank you and sorry. I saw that but wasn!!!8217;t sure whether I should go down the route of only being 10 minutes over, or using the receipt as proof I was indeed shopping there.

    Thanks

    Or look up your PCN on PE's website tomorrow or Monday, and see if it says 0 to pay.

    Always, always, complain to the retailer first about a PPC fake fine.
    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:
    Top of the page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.
