Is it le­gal to im­pose park­ing fines?

The Oban Times - - LETTERS -

Sir, I think Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil is com­mit­ting an of­fence in tak­ing money from peo­ple in park­ing fines, when it does not pro­vide them with the means to pay for the ticket in the first place.

I got a ticket as I couldn’t get the ma­chine to ac­cept my two £1 coins, so I left a note ex­plain­ing, with my two coins, vis­i­ble on the dash­board, to show that I had tried to pay, yet still a hard-hearted war­den gave me a ticket.

I will see what the re­sponse is from Kil­mory as I wrote to ob­ject and ex­plain. But the coun­cil should not have me­ters that don’t take the cur­rency of the coun­try. Mary Brown, by email.
