Parking fine? It’s a joke says Carlisle pensioner

A pensioner has received a £100 fine – because he visited a Carlisle car park twice in the same day.
Have your say
I parked on Mecca Bingo car park Bolton.On the way in I asked the attendant when and how I pay he said pay on leaving. Fine. When I left I tried to get the attendants attention in order to pay. He was in conversation and waved me through. Now I have a fine !!!
i had the same problem in aldi in swindon, i popped there for milk at 20.10 on a wednesday night left 10 mins after then returned to aldi the next morning around 9 am bought my bits then left around 10 mins later, they say i left the car there all night, i did not, the pic even shows me wearing diff clothes, i will simply change the date and time on my phone to the date and time they say i was in their carpark and take a picture of my car somewhere else, i know this stands up in a court of law :)
I am heartened to see I am not alone. I recently went to the Llyn Peninsula with the wife, and duly received a fine for being a total of 6 minutes over. The photo shows the car going into the car park. So give me a minute to park (in an empty car park), another one to get the right change and the ticket...then a minute to come out of the park, so really Â£80 for three minutes.
A big THANK YOU to everyone standing up against these threatening letters.
