They got me photo'd going in at 8.45 am and leaving at 6 05 pm last week.
If they think they have a chance in hell of seeing a single penny from me all i have to say is
Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
and so on.

Brilliant advice.

Don't complain when they start clamping instead.

A complaint might be surprisingly effective.
So... how will Meadowhell shopping centre deal with those who park illegally in the disabled bays?

A polite but firm letter addressed to the persons residence, perhaps?

Public opinion right now - and the law seemingly will change to reflect it - is that I have a right to park on your land whether you want me to or not.

I wonder if the "public opinion" would change, if it was the public's own driveways that were being parked on.

Got a fine today!

I was actually in the retail park for over 3 hrs. Most of it in Toys r us. Spoke with the store today as I have a receipt for purchase stating the time. I can get my fine revoked.

Lesson learnt.

3 hrs max, or better still don't shop there. Obviously don't want shoppers!

Not many driveways have retial outlets on them where people are encoraged to park.
So really its a pretty stupid comparrison.
