I get high rate DLA, plus I have a registration card from the local County Council which states that I am disabled. I'll be making a few phone calls come Monday...


Thanks Ned...

Disabled bays in supermarkets are enforceable by on officer of the law while on duty I know this because instead of taking abuse off lazy able bodied persons I have a few times asked a police officer if he can have a word and on a couple of occasions he has issued a parking ticket. O0

Same here in Queensland that is why car parks all now use Official signage, stop ,give way, Disabled parking, 40, 20 etc. :-)) :-))

I wanted to put something different into the holder, instead of just binning a perfectly good holder and after a quick Google for suggestions I found this designed by the Police, which I thought was a sensible alternative :-

I had quite a bad car smash on Wednesday and was surprised that although insurance, tax, licence and ownership are all available on the PNC I was still required to "present my documents sir". Fortunately I had all to hand which saved me from breaking into my local cop shop. Breathalysed also. Got a good zero on that, but difficult to blow with crushed sternum.

Has anybody noticed the bargain tax disc holders appearing in the pound stores?  I can't help wondering if some buyer for them thought he had a killer bargain for a ware-houseful.

We have turned our A5  parking permits into a tax disc sized circular one and a local
garage has given us there unwanted holders.
It will save members from forgetting to show the permit.
(Our Chairman got caught without his and a charge was applied by a jobsworth >>:-( )


It also advertises the association

All major supermarkets use facility management companies to police
the car parks.
OK if you have humans operating the system.
Sainsburys now have ANPR cameras on entry and exit
with screens  showing your reg as you enter and leave.
Just make sure yours shows up on leaving or you will
have a fine in the post.

Ned
ours has the sign on entry, but when you leave there is nothing to show which vehicle is exiting.

Private shopping parks that use anpr cannot issue fines for over staying infact they issue you with an invoice which is an invite to pay for your overstay it is not a fine if you dont pay it the ticketing company will be intouch for the money  ut as it is only an invitation to pay and not a fine you dont have to pay the companys used to make all sorts of threats to get you to pay something was in the paper a ojt all this the other month

Re car park control by private agencies and not council type parking under road traffic act.
Asda, Tesco, aldi, lidl etc, parking eye and the like. Don't pay, don't enter into any correspondence, ignore further letters/threats until and if you are summoned to county court. If so make sure you attend or they will find against you. If you attend remind the officer that you are in breach of contract, the only penalty for which is damages. The car park people have suffered no damages so I want all my costs thankyou very much.

Airdrie - we've ONE carpark you have to pay for. The first half-hour's free, then there's a forty pound fine, doubling to eighty if you don't pay within 28 days. This carpark is right next to the surgery. My wife, having arranged an emergency appointment, was parked here for 35 minutes a few months ago. A week later, a letter arrived.

Parking Eye had contacted the DVLA for the car's registered owner details, and sent us the bill.

I wrote to them. I mentioned that under Scottish law, it's the driver who incurs a fine, not the owner, and they had offered no proof of who was driving. I asked them, until FOI rules, who owned by the land in question. I mentioned that the fine was an unfair reflection of 'damages' incurred, and also asked why the same fine would be passed on to someone staying five hours, or five minutes over the allotted time.

They wrote back, suggesting my points were 'too general', and cited one case under English law that they had won, a few years ago.

Stuff that, I thought. They're nothing but a money-grabbing scam designed to rip off the vulnerable, by expecting the 90% to cough up when threatened.

I've heard nothing since.

Everybody is out to make a few quid out of  people, legally or not. It's getting  ridiculous now...soon you'll be getting a parking ticket for stopping in a traffic queue.


I have often displayed this in my windscreen in supermarket (or others) car parks...so far I've been lucky.

The definitive answer to displaying a tax disc in your windscreen...


Yesterday whilst out in the car to get petrol, I spotted a local Police traffic car parked up round the back of the garage, so I asked the driver for his advice. I'm told that if your tax disc is still current, you may as well leave on it display, and if it's expired then you may as well take it out.


So there you have it...it's up to you.
