Euro Car Parks At It Again

This time with Sainsbury's, but making sure you're a Blue Badge holder, or have kids with you, to park in the Disabled/Parent & Child spaces.

However, with no obvious CCTV cameras over the Disabled/Parent & Child spaces I fail to see how they'll police this. Also the smallprint on the sign states that this is in operation 24 hours a day - now, whilst I don't park in Disabled/Parent & Child spaces as a rule, I'm sorry - at 9:30pm, when frankly children under 12 should be in bed, they're fucking fair game as far as I'm concerned.

They state that 50% of all monies returned to Sainsbury's will be donated to Mencap, after Euro Car Parks have taken their cut I'd wager this is about £2.50.

Still, all of this is completely irrelevant as these "Parking Charge Notices" (note the clever use of words there) are completely unenforceable. Warnings of bailiffs are equally bollocks, as they'll need a CCJ granted in their favour before they can even contemplate sending bailiffs, which will never happen. You have not broken any laws and they cannot legally request the money.

Hiya, just got a £50 fine (£30 for parking in pick up bay). Are you saying I should ignore this?
