Lidl introduces car park system
A LIDL in Somerset has launched a new check-in system to curb misuse of its car park.
Motorists who fail to register their vehicle details inside the branch at Castle Street in Taunton now risk a £90 charge.
Signs at the store say the charge will apply to non-Lidl customers, with details of vehicles using the car park are recorded in CCTV cameras.
To avoid the parking charge, motorists have to enter registration details and scan a till receipt at a computer inside the store.
Lidl spokesman said: “Lidl has car park management systems in place at stores where car parks are subject to misuse.
“These are in place to manage the availability of parking spaces, to ensure that customers take priority.”
