A shopper who spent £400 in Carlisle’s Dunelm Mill was slapped with a £70 fine for staying in the store’s car park – but got it written off after complaining to the News & Star.
Have your say
what a waste of my time reading this! it is not the fault of dunelm, rather that of the private landlord who they rent the carpark off! i have been to this store many times and the signs are crystal clear. i have been charged for overstaying in the carpark in the past and all i did was let them know about it and they were more than happy to contact parking eye and have it cancelled for me. there was no need to take it to the papers as it would have gotten cancelled anyway!
As Alex says...This is not a "fine". If you get one this way ignore it and do not respond to them in anyway.
Is this not one of many seen drivers failures as they are too busy on their mobiles to read the road or even the signs so easily visible to careful drivers. I was following two driven cars on west of city and the two, on two separate journey occasions it was obviously noticeable gabbling on their hand held mobile. I drove closer and they both failed to signal on a corner junction that warranted a signal. The car was steered against at least by one against HMs HWC of two hands on the wheel.
