At Go Outdoors, Chatham they have a new till system. Buying a Pay and Display car park ticket gives you a Go Outdoors parking voucher. The till doesn't have a parking voucher button so they have to reduce the price of one of the items you buy by 1 manually. Weird!

Enjoy the liveliness of the syntax.

get ticket on entry and scan or validate ticket with purchase in shop. i dont mind that system, as long as its well signed. after all, it`s the shops property i`m parking on.

That's OK if you manage to buy anything. Sainsburys near me has a 2 pay and display, with a refund if you spend over 5.

But Mrs Z does the routine grocery shopping and I only go in a supermarket for special single items like a bottle of dessert wine or a box of chocs for someone's birthday. But if they don't have the thing I'm looking for, I don't feel inclined to buy 5's worth of baked beans or something to make up for it, so I just don't go there. Tesco's car park is free.

When it comes to the likes of Parking Eye, I only ever pay via my card and make sure i keep my ticket, then i have proof from 2 sources of payment. They control our local hospital carparks - infact you could say they control the grounds because their machines take your reg number as you turn into the hospital access road, one day i dropped my husband off for an appointment couldnt get a parking space in any of the carparks even though i drove round all three of them trying, husband came out and rang me so i just went and picked him up and left - got a parking ticket and had to pay they wouldnt accept that i hadnt parked. Since then husband ended up in hospital for 18mths and even though i bought monthly parking permits on 4 occasions they tried to charge me a parking fine which the hospital had to deal with even though i could prove to them i had a pass and had paid they wouldnt accept it from me - I even told them they could take me to court as i had the proof that i had paid

I have not read all the posts on this so I may be repeating what someone else has said but I read of a company called parkingticket appeals.org.uk who for 18 guarantee to win your appeal or pay your fine!
Their web site looks convincing .They say they usually win but those they lose and admin costs are covered by their standard fee of 18.
I have not used them but it may be worth trying.
