‘best to use designated bays’
Another provision of the Operation Requirements is paragraph 14, which states that operators must give clear information about what parking activities are allowed and what is unauthorised.
There aren’t any ‘no parking’ signs along the small strip of land where Mr Opik parked, and from the markings on the ground it could be an easy mistake for a visitor to think it is a marked bay.
The British Parking Association said: “As a general rule it’s common sense to park in a designated bay and common sense to mark the car park out correctly to ensure motorists are clear about what is a designated bay.”
Both Parking Ticketing Ltd and Quadrant Estates were contacted for comment on the story, but had not responded as the Kentish Express went to press .yesterday (Wednesday).
