Maybe he is expecting a full TV advertising campaign, maybe a series of billboards through the city. Not sure what he is expecting.

You reckon we could get SCC to do that for bus gates too?

Morrisons at Hillsborough is one example, I think.

Can't remember seeing charges for parking  at the big Tesco's between Spital Hill / Saville Street or the Morrisons at Catcliffe either. Not been to either in the last year but usually call at one or t'other on our journey back to the ferry to France to stock up with goodies like Hendies, cranberry sauce, Tetley tea bags, Hellmans Mayo etc.

Spital Hill one has signs up, relatively sure on that

No matter how widely you publicise something, people will claim they never saw it.

 

On bus gates, when the council introduce enforcement at one, they have a period of weeks where they give out warning notices instead of fines, so people who use the route frequently  will get a warning. 
 

The signs are big and very obvious and have to be compliant with government signing regulations in order to be enforceable.

 

If people want to appeal a fine there’s a regulated process that includes the appeal being heard by a completely independent adjudicator ( a barrister). My experience of adjudicators is that they tend to allow an appeal if there is any reason at all they can find to let the motorist off. Many appeals are successful.

 

The picture on private land parking enforcement is rather different and not a great comparison.

You mean these signs? (Circled in red for your convenience). These ones are only the ones visible from Albert Terrace Road. via StreetView.  There are equally visible signs from Montgomery Terrace using the same method. 

If you don't see multiple bright blue signs appear in a car park where previously there weren't any then I wonder if you should be behind the wheel of a car given your observational skills are severely lacking. 

Also, the image attached was taken in July 2023 so they've been there a good 7 months, dispelling your assertion that it was 'sudden'

Unfortunately the signs you show have all been changed (perhaps proving my point) as the restrictions were altered this year with a two hour limit imposed. As I have said regular users are unlikely to have noticed the change . I would argue that the signs at the entrance should not be the standard signs elsewhere in the car park but should be designed to draw attention to the fact the rules have changed

Those signs (that were there for at least three years, according to Street View) do state maximum 3 hour stay though, not the ‘virtually unlimited’ you originally posted.

 

Not defending Tesco here, by the way — just pointing out that it hasn’t been unlimited time for a very long time.

Sorry you are wrong

 

According to Tesco the new restrictions were introduced because "people were abusing the car park and parking for the whole of the day. This was detrimental to some of our genuine customers who reported, on occasion, difficulties finding a car parking space"

Despite the number of football fans parked in the top car park when Wednesday are at home.

The top car park at Morrisons is owned by the Council and the bottom by Morrisons. Surprised the Council have not put some sort of restrictions.

You could whack 100 signs up, people still wouldn't read them because the average motorist is thick as two short planks. See my example on page 1 of this thread of me sauntering down the timed bus lane on Chesterfield Rd at 1pm whilst everyone crams into the 2nd lane.

I’m not wrong in terms of the signage… the 3 hour maximum stay signage has been there since at least 2020.

 

It might have changed recently to two hours max, but the signs stating three hours max show on street view for the last four years.
