Drivers who enter the wrong number plate when parking will no longer be fined

Post by expressman33 » Fri Jan 10 2020 5:38pm

The British Parking Association (BPA) – the trade body which represents parking operators - has revised its Code of Practice so that firms will have to cancel charges if one letter or number is incorrect.

Under the previous rules, a driver could be fined up to £100 if they incorrectly entered the wrong car details.

The BPA categorises a minor keying-in-error as one letter or number incorrect or letters and numbers in the wrong order.

Not before time, for anyone with a new car will know it takes time to learn it. Everyone can make a mistake.

Car parking firms should bring in AI and automate the car-in and car-out process.

Some use cameras and that caused one motorist a problem. Why my brain remembered this I have no idea but it did. Went to Asda and bought something, on to work and at the end of the day went back to Asda for something else. Fined for leaving the car there all day and had a lot of trouble getting the car park people to waive the fine due to the fact he made 2 visits.
