Thx Rappy

I am sure this thread will be refered to again and again.

Or, better still, pay up, and drop this sociopathic entitlement / innocence obsession. You got ticketed because you broke the rules. The rules are there to benefit the safety and the convenience of everyone. Park on zig-zags by a school crossing, you endanger the lives of small children. Park on a double yellow somewhere, you partially block someone's route, and cause them an inconvenience. Maybe an accident if something goes wrong. If you're too much of a selfish asshat to obey the rules and are happy enough to abuse the roads at the detriment of others, then that £30 fine is pretty much fair game, imo.

That is not always the case http://www.pendletoday.co.uk/nelsonnews/Thousands-of-Pendle-parking-39fines39.3823162.jp

Does this apply for NCP parking fines? If so I might have wasted £150 in 3 tickets:oops:
I got them for parking over the 4 hour limit in a retail park, which is close to railway station;-)

Except they were in a car park, where their parking doesn't inconvenience anybody, save for perhaps the carpark's owners. I don't really care about them. Who I do care about is the inconsiderate prats who as a matter of course park wherever is convinent to them, a the total expense of everyone else on the road, and then whinge when they get caught as if they were entitled topark there, and that they've been hard done by.

I was with some friends a couple of years back and we parked in a mcdonalds that was patrolled by a private parking company.

We weren't going to mcdonalds, we were going to the restaurant across the road.
When we came back the car was clamped and the 'clampers' instantly turned up.
After a long row and nearly getting into a scrap several times.....we (or should I say me and I wasn't even the driver!) paid up. Cost me £120

The advice above seems fairly pointless since once your car is clamped you haven't got a choice but to pay up. It's either that or a long trek home.

Ohh yeah I totally agree with that point. Where I live we don't have any police patrols or traffic wardens except for an hour once every couple of months. People park on double yellows, at junctions, wherever cos they know they will get away with it and it is downright dangerous at times

Tell them to stuff, get in your car and get valuables out and leave it.

Now leave it a few hours and go back, its virtualy guaranteed they will have removed the clamp in the hope you will move the car because.
a) You are tying up a space that someone else can park in who may cough up.
b) You are tying up a clamp.

Usually they come after you saying they will remove the clamp and say don't do it again.

I have done this a few times, but the thing is it was old bangers where the fee was around the same as the cars value and they knew it:thumbsup:

My mates car was probably worth around a grand at the time.
Plus we didn't know the area we were in, if it happened in my home city then maybe. But this was in some random place in south london lol.

What you're saying seems like sound advice though, if it ever happens again I'll try it.
Probably come back to a car with broken windows, stolen tyres and no bonnet :lol:

I think you're missing the point of this thread. It is about private parking fines.

The scenarios you describe would be from council wardens or the police.

I do however agree fully in what you say about the idiots who think they can park anywhere! :thumbsup:

I wish I lived in a part of the country where fines were £30 lol

If its that dangerous/inconsiderate to park on yellow lines, how come disabled drivers are allowed to?
