Has any­one else been caught for park­ing?

The Oban Times - - Letters -

Sir, I won­der if any of your read­ers have come across sim­i­lar prob­lems.

I re­cently went to Mor­risons on a Satur­day af­ter­noon at about 4pm. I got my shop­ping and left af­ter 45 min­utes.

The next morn­ing on my way to work in Skye, I went to the bot­tle bank in the Mor­risons car park and de­posited a few bot­tles. This would have been about 7.15am and my stay was only for two min­utes. A week later, I got a very threat­en­ing let­ter telling me I had left my car overnight in the car park and had to pay a fine of £70.

I won’t be pay­ing this but was con­cerned that more vul­ner­a­ble cus­tomers, such as pen­sion­ers, may feel in­tim­i­dated to pay up. I am shocked both by Mor­risons as­so­ci­at­ing it­self with a car park man­age­ment com­pany – Park­ing Eye – which ap­pears lit­tle bet­ter than a cow­boy and its method of mon­i­tor­ing cars in its car park or more ac­cu­rately the lack of it.
