  1. Hillington Trade Centre- what a bunch of chancers. I went for a test drive in a white golf at the beginning of september- saw the car on ebay and there was not a chance the car was roadworthy. Suspect I may have looked at your Clio, as it was around that time, but in the end i got a much nicer, roadworthy car than anything avaiable at this dump- a disgrace to Glasgow. Never buy from there!!!
  2. NPM are also breaking the law by refering to it as a fine- and private individuals/companies cannot issue "fines" i know its a bit late but better late than never...
  3. im sorry ill go to confession on sunday at a church with free car parking:rolleyes:
  4. its a private parking company ticket- just ignore them. they are thieving b*****ds
  5. Glasgow City Council parking fines are £60 (reduced to £30 within 14 days), which makes me think this is a private ticket simply because if the council were looking for money, they would be looking for more than £60. Whereabouts in Glasgow was this, and was a ticket affixed to your cars windscreen?
  6. here mate dae a sound like eh kinda person who is into that karma shhhhhite or all this morals pish? naw! n for a wall to collapse from the restaurant where the refurbishment works are goin on all the way over to the other side of the empty car park would be blatant vandalism.
  7. Givin that the restaurant is closed for refurbishment I can see absolutly no issues with parking there, and to be honest if the guy had put up a sign saying no parking then I would probably comply with the request. However the fact that he has the arrogance to threaten people with what is an illegal act in this country makes me determined to wind the prick up, until he takes down the sign. And if, the first time I parked there he had been reasonable with me, I would be more reasonable with him. However I'm quite an argumentitive person, and am not one to give up.
  8. Well parked there again today, and had no problems!! Even had time to show the c**t my middle finger on leaving the car park (very mature I know...) However if he had chosen to block my car in then I may have ended up calling the police for obstruction, as apparantly a car park is a public area, where it is illegal to block somebodys vehicle in without permission (or something like that). And I am tempted to inform trading standards about this, quite simply cos the guys a pure tool. Scottish law is really great in banning clamps completely!
  9. Today I parked my car in a private car park in Scotland, which had a sign on entering warning that all cars belonging to people not using the restaurant would be clamped (with a release fee of £50). Needless to say I just abandoned my car in that car park anyway as it was empty, and I am also aware that clamping in Scotland is completely illegal. On returning to my car about 10 minutes later there was a man (from the restaurant I assume) demanding that I move my car immediatly, and that if I ever returned to the car park he would clamp me. I just told him to f*** off, shove his clamp n tr
  10. If this was a council ticket, then the phone number would not be diverting to a mobile voicemail service
  11. its the ones who shout up the carriage "have your tickets ready" who are best to wind up. they are clearly in a rush and so i find it best pretend to sleep and then basically act stupid until they lose their tempers, then produce the ticket.
  12. You are defo right about Scotrail heckies bein arogant, although I will concede there are a few decent ones. Its the ones who are similar to traffic wardens in that they think they have the authority of the police who I cannot stand. Mind you up here most people dont stand for any of their sh*te anyway
  13. yes but a ticket will be produced... eventually. so no laws or by-laws or any of that crap will be broken. if your fellow ticket inspectors (including those here in glasgow) had a better attitude and did not act like wanna-be-cops who have sod all common sense and sympathy then people would maybe be a bit more helpful.
  14. i like oscar21's style of thinking. public transport in this country is a joke.
  15. When writing to the manager of the Co-Op you should mention that you are a regular customer at their stores, and that they will be losing out on your custom in future should they try to enforce this invoice, which you are not going to pay anyway. Common sense should tell them that if you were to spend £50 a week in their stores, this would amount to £2600 per year, whereas the ticket (if it was enforcable and you were to pay it) would only net them a couple of pounds, which makes it in their best interests not to lose you as a customer. If they do not see sense then you should simpl
  16. The Co-op now employ Euro-Car Parks to attempt to enforce these "restriction" in their car parks. It is a private parking company and therefore the invoice they have givin you is unenforcable. Just simply ignore it. Although if I was you I'd ask to speak to the manager of the Co-Op store, as I KNOW that they have the power to have this joke of a company stop harrasing you (and I'm sure they would not want to lose a customer because of this incident)
  17. Sorry for that little "indiscretion" although I believe that it is harsh to prosecute for simply having a phone in your hand as it is not any more distacting than changing a radio station or following sat-nav instructions. I actually believe that if mobiles are banned at the wheel then smoking should almost certainly be banned as this is far more dangerous.
  18. it is only an offence however to use the phone, meaning that you have commited no offence as you weresimply holding it
  19. This is totally irrelevant, but i have found Euro Car Parks staff to be completely unhelpful on contacting them. I emailed the company around 3 weeks ago to question the validity of any ticket handed out to them and to question if they were aware that the signs they have up in a local Co-op car park were illegal (claim to be able to issue a penalty charge notice). The reply I got was "have you recieved a parking invoice from this car park". I replyed that this was irrelevant. I have now recieved an email from them telling me to stop wasting their time. I think this kind of attitude
  20. Hi, Anybody got any idea whether there are any regulations or guidelines which force councils to offer victims of PCN's to pay at the "discounted" rate after an appeal. My reason for asking is that on reading a PCN from Glasgow city council it states that "it is not possible to appeal and then pay at the discounted rate." I was under the impression that as soon as an appeal is lodged it effectivley "stopped the clock" on the discounted period, and therefore if the appeal failed then it would be possible to pay at the discounted £30 rate. Your advice would be appreciated. Thanks,
  21. I was taught that it is actually illegal to park opposite to a dropped kerb in a residential area
