  1. Hi, this is my first thread on here although I have been signed up for some time now and follow many of the threads and articles with interest and often finding extremely sound advice. Now I find myself in a position of needing specific advice for a problem of my own. First, a bit of background is needed to understand my situation.

That way, no one could ever overstay their time as they would simply pay for the correct amount of time upon leaving. This will never happen though for the following reasons: 1. The extra money gained from people paying for more time than they need. 2. Because they would no longer have any need to issue penalties so again would lose money. 3.
