In most carparks on ground level there mostly disabled and a children parking spots, how is this monitored as there are no camera's I believe exept as you enter and leave the car park?

not asking as I want to park in one, just curious tbh

They have people who they privately hire to check how long cars have been parked for and where they've been parked. A little bit like a traffic warden, but for the marina car park. They've recently done the car park up, so they are hot on their heels about parking down their now.

your conscious.......I just couldn't park in disabled or parent and child space oO

neither would I, not worth the risk, but just curios

not sure who runs this car park (council/private?) but with supermarkets it's a joke! unscrupulous drivers abuse child & parent/disabled parking but the supermarkets are hesitant to challenge them as they could lose a £70/week customer over a fickle argument

its mostly ugly fat orange middle aged women in sh!** y little sports cars that use these spaces without any entitlement

Usually the supermarket isn't in a position to challenge them as in most cases the operation of the private car park is contracted out to a parking company. More people are realising that enforcement actions taken by these parking companies are not easily enforceable by the law as they are "invoices" rather than council-issued tickets, including parking in disabled/other restricted spaces. In fact from my understanding, a private operator cannot require a customer to have a Blue Badge to park in a disabled space, as the regulations state that spaces must be made available to all disabled customers (not just those with Blue Badges).
