    Payment!!!! You decide 'This is like someone SPEEDING and getting a fine'

    My wife works in the court system, and I have asked her this question for her to ask a police officer and or traffic department. I am hoping for an answer today. As soon as she lets me know, I'll let you know.

    When was this?, and when did you get the notification through the post?

    Obvious question, would be, was you in that shop all the time, and if so, was you over the time limit??

    If you were in the shop all that time, then you maybe able to approach the manager of that branch and explain your predicament. He may or may not be able to help, but it can't hurt you asking....

    Speak soon.
    Thanks

    On the premises.

    I contacted the supermarket each day for the past 3 days and received no reply until early this evening. They suggested I contacted the General Manager of the store. I phoned an hour ago and spoke to a Duty Manager and even without preparing my case seemed quite amenable to resolving this issue.

    couple of links for you, including a watchdog youtube link

    I have been looking at these forums for the past 3 days and couldn't come to a conclusion.

    With reference to the links:

    "In most cases, ignoring the unfair ticket is the right tactic (see below) though, of course, there are no guarantees."

    It may be possable to argue they are not clear, large enough or well placed if you didn't see them.

    Other than that I would think you would be stuffed.

    Good luck ... Mel
    The store is 60 miles away but I have asked for photos of signs and where they are positioned

    A few years ago I had one from a private company doing the same thing at a LIDL of all places... I'd only been there for 5 minutes to get some milk (but then went in there the following morning for something else... the company seemed to think I had stayed there all night.
    I've spoken to the store so hopefully can resolve with the store

    Will do. I was expecting them to say, it's not our problem as parking is outsourced so take it up with the Parking Enforcement company. However, they wouldn't like the bad publicity that could be stirred up
