Parking fine puts us off returning to Carlisle

A group of cyclists has been put off visiting Carlisle after their van was given a parking ticket as they spent more than £100 in the city’s Sands Centre.
Have your say
If you park illegally in any town or city you would expect to get a ticket - end of.I find it particularly annoying when trying to park to find vans, mobile homes, large vehicles etc use two, three or even four spaces

You should have gone to a super-free parking space...
alieshia?, did you park, when you say car park?.. did you park in a NCPC car park, ie: gala bingo, Iceland, Portland place carpark.. perhaps?.. Im not certain about this, but its a private car park, not a council one.. and they sit in their cars, in the pitch black, in 0 degrees, just waiting for that 1 person to make that mistake. I popped to slimmingworld on a wed eve at chapel st one eve, most expensive slimming world ive ever been to. cost me Â£5 to get weighed, then Â£40 for the ticket i received because i parked in iceland carpark at 7pm on a cold,snowey january evening. not a soul in sight, but parked for 10 mins, got a ticket.. he was so quick he couldnt even get my numberplate right!
(silly me paid it too)
